...Marlène, your were great! I had a hard time adapting from structured Japan to hectic Marrakech. Thanks to you I adored the shopping moments... THANK YOU

...She is a fantastic source for information of any kind, no matter if the topic is best places for shopping, nicest restaurants, beautiful rooftops for a sundowner or the best souks...a brainstorming about how we would like to feel in our homes... It really cleared my mind and I was happy about her professional remarks and advice!... She took us to a breathtaking carpet souk in the medina (of whom she seems to know most of the owners), and nowhere we had the feeling that anybody expected or urged us to buy anything ...

Marlene was a fabulously knowledgeable sourcing guide. She unerringly tailormade a custom itinerary for me and very quickly honed in on what would best appeal to my aesthetics and style. I would have never found the secret shops and suppliers we visited...The places to buy the best of what was available... Easy & smooth bargaining & payment...
The only issue was that our time together was entirely too successful, I had to buy extra luggage to carry my purchases home, with further orders shipped!!
