As the owner of Cobblestone Private Travel, Diamond’s experience planning travel to Morocco is unbeatable. His 18 years of experience have given him the opportunity to continue to perfect his network of go-to guides, designers, scholars, hoteliers, and artisans from Tangier to Essaouira. Each of his custom-designed journeys draws on his experience and ability to open doors for travelers. He's a pro at matching your unique, intersecting passions with people and experiences on the ground; as he puts it, “most travelers are more than just one thing.” An adventurous couple on their honeymoon can combine Morocco’s famously lavish hotels with hiking in the Atlas Mountains; multi-generational groups can rent a villa for the whole family, but also head out for individual cooking classes or museum tours. Having his own team on the ground in Morocco means everything — from airport transfers to after-hours emergencies — is taken care of.
"Michael really made things happen that we couldn't have done otherwise. He set us up with an American design pro in Marrakesh who got us into hidden workshops (we watched metal lanterns being welded); helped us find a neat, out-of-the-way cooking class in a local village near Marrakesh; and helped us navigate the slightly complex task of getting to the desert with ease. He's responsive and quite good at tailoring trips to individuals. In our case, two interior design fiends, a history teacher, and a die-hard shopper. I couldn't recommend him more highly." - Jenn Barger
