"The Moroccan Trip was quite an adventure! We got to experience a bit of the culture at the bath house, the Medina, and the guided tours. I have never done shopping while hiking in the mountains before!
Starting the day with yoga or Pilates was a fantastic way to begin. I usually have back pain, but had no pain this entire trip due to our morning exercise.
The Peacock Pavilions were like nothing I have ever seen before! Each guest room was individually decorated with authentic African artifacts. It was great to have a kitchen and living room area so we could sit and socialize in the evening. I went up on the rooftop terrace every morning to watch the sun rise over the mountains! The movie under the stars was an amazing experience, as was the Andalusian singer, and the henna artist.
This trip was the perfect balance of relaxation, fun, and culture. It was very well planned, while also being flexible enough to meet our needs." ~ Josie (2017 Participant)
