    Our positive experience started in the planning stages with Lily. She listened to us and made amendments to our agenda as needed and answered all our our questions in a timely manner. I will definitely use Kensington for any trips in the future! Thank you for a wonderful experience.

    Kristie did a wonderful job! She really took the time to understand our desires and built the trip accordingly. We were most appreciative of her attention to detail.

    The trip was magical from start to finish. Kensington thought of every detail to make the trip so enjoyable and interesting. This trip will go down as one of the best, if not the best, trip we have ever taken!

    Fabulous Trip. Everyone worked to make this trip absolutely memorable. I highly recommend Carolyn, our agent, and Kensington Tours in general.

    Everything was seamless! The itinerary covered all of the highlights of Casablanca and Marrakesh with enough time for us to wander at our leisure. Our driver, Rashid and tour guide, Achmed were very knowledgeable and fantastic.... always on time, extremely well informed, tremendously kind, humorous and always flexible to our wants and desires.

  • Manuel G — October 06, 2017 — Africa

    Our guides, George, Ben and Michael were fantastic. Both George and Ben were amazing at spotting animals and knowing where to find them.

  • Barbara H — October 06, 2017 — Africa

    Trip of a lifetime! Our guides, George (Kenya) and Raymond (Tanzania), were both outstanding- knowledgeable, personable, patient, and accommodating.
