Diamond relies on an on-the-ground team to build memorable trips. After nearly 20 years of booking travel to Morocco, Diamond knows all of the top guides, the most beguiling hotels and riads, and the shops with the most pilgrimage-worthy souvenirs. Diamond’s thoughtful experiences might include highlights such as meeting the leather makers of Fez’s famed Chouara tanneries.

For one traveler, he remembers, "We arranged a private lunch at Hassan Hassaj’s café in Marrakech’s Industrial Quarter, home to designer ateliers and workshops. Hajjaj is a well-known art and fashion photographer, sometimes called Morocco’s Andy Warhol. The group was welcomed by a Gnawa band and had a photographer to capture the moment."

For a favorite Sahara experience in Morocco, Diamond can arrange a luxury encampment with stylish tents and live music, often with traditional sufi roots. "Sitting around a campfire with the star-filled African sky above is often a highlight of client's experiences," Diamond says.

"It's fair to say that Michael Diamond worked a miracle with our family trip to Morocco last year. We had originally planned the trip for 2020, but the pandemic made it necessary for us to reschedule it for 2021. Between following all of the shifting Covid restrictions, and accommodating the schedules of each family member, Michael somehow managed to replan and rebook the whole trip, including an exceptional guide, a private driver, lodging at five different places, and multiple special experiences. He has an extensive knowledge of Morocco, and was always responsive, flexible, and accommodating." - Carol D.
