Ya estamos de vuelta a esta realidad y dejado atrás unos días maravillosos que no será fácil olvidar, el porqué, es sencillo aquello era ÁFRICA. Me encantaría repetir las gracias a Kco y Alba por habernos preparado este viaje, por querer mostrarnos Marruecos, por su esfuerzo y empuje; pero no sólo a ellos, porque todos habéis hecho de este viaje haya sido tan especial, donde cada uno podremos contar una crónica distinta, donde 13 viajes distintos han coincidido en uno, donde las palabras MAGIA, AFRICA, CAJA NEGRA, MIERDA RICA, MORO, … y tantas más tienen más significados y recuerdos. Y aunque hoy es un día triste para mí, no quería de dejar de escribiros y deciros que repetimos cuando sea, ya sea aquí en Ma…, Madrid, María, Murcia, … o ande sea, que os he echado de menos y eso que aún no me he acostado. Un besazo enorme, un abrazo y hasta pronto.
Hemos pasado una semana con el equipo de Yunes,y a sido lo mejor del viaje tanto por el confort y la atención que han tenido para que cada parada salga todo a la perfección,despues de tantos kilometros ,tantos paisages y toda la aventura con la versatilidad de haber estado con ellos es mas que aconsejable para conocer a este gran pais.
I am absolutely amazed with the treatment received by Africa Aventura during our stay in Morocco. Yunes has been not only a tour guide, but also a storyteller (he is an open book, you can talk with him of whatever you want to know), a waiter, a photographer, a mediator, a 24 hours personal assistant and a long etc. From the first day till the last one, he has accompanied us at every moment: In hotels: he has kept abreast of every detail, from reception, when he helped us to bring the luggage to the bedroom, to show us how to switch the air conditioned on, or even to give us towels at the swimming pool when we realized we had forgotten them. At meals: Yunes seated with us (we invited him to do so) like one more, but he was not relaxed like us because he was checking out that absolutely everything was perfect. If you needed something and the waiter was not close to asking for it, he stopped eating to bring you that thing. I remember when there were crepes to have for dessert and they were so delicious that I wanted to repeat. Then he gave me his. By the way, were couldn’t believe it when he took us to his own house where her mother cooked for us during the whole morning (the best cous-cous I have ever tried for sure). During transfers: Yunes came with us in our cars (we didn’t rent any) and he guided the route while explaining what the landscape offered. Also how people dressed, the differences between one looks and others, etc., etc. During activities: He organized everything too. He stayed even until the party in haimas reached his end just to make sure everything was okay (actually he was really tired because he wakes up at 4:30am to pray and then he never stops, but even that, he is always the last one lying down). At the time of purchases: Yunes took us to very good places, not only for the quality, but also taking in to account to whom the money was destined. To give an example, we saw many scarves shops, but he recommended us to buy them to a woman and her daughters, who started a kind of project to help the women involved. In definitely, Yunes has been the most incredible trip partner (I cannot say guide, it would not be fair) I have ever known. And now, I am sure I can say that a new friend has come into my life. Thank you Yunes, this trip without you wouldn’t be absolutely the same… Don’t ever change! You’re incredible!
We visited Morocco last year and me with one of the representatives of Africa Adventures Yunes by chance. He offered to help us and we were a bit reluctant at first. I must say I am so glad that we took up his offer as a guide. He was brilliant, he took us to see places we would never have gone to in Morocco. I would highly recommend him.
