Our 3 day trip was incredible amazing! We discovered lots of places, towns, landscapes, traditions and learn about history & food about Morroco. We’ve felt always comfortable, safe & very happy, this was possible thanks to our tour-guide Ouahane Mohamide! We take from Morocco lots of memories and a very good friend, thanks Mohamide for being a nice part of our trip, hope to see you again my friend! 😌

we did a 4 day trip from Fez to Marrakech with an awesome guide called Mohamed Ouahane, with the Toyota Prado we reached every corner of the really old cities and towns, Medinas, Sahara, markets and the most important thing, we tried REAL local food in each place, and we have a vegetarian in the Crew. The hotels are pretty good, and everyone is really helpfull.

We traveled a few years ago to Morocco and did the Marrakech desert tour from Marrakech to Fez in September 2018. It was incredible. We had a fabulous driver Mohammed for the four of us (2 couples). He war really professional. It was a lot of driving but it was spectacular. Saw a lot of different views and stayed in the luxury tent in the camp in the Sahara. Would love to go back again. Incredible experience

In general, the trip was fine. Drivers were very good and company was easy to communnicate with. We always felt very safe. The bus was pretty comfortable. Guides were all very nice. Everyone spoke great English. Some not so good: - You are repeatedly told that you do need to take much money with you because almost everything is covered. This is simply not true - guides require payment and tips, lunch restaurants are expensive and people will corner you and try to sell you things at every chance. - The guide at Ait Ben Haddou was NOT optional as it says on the website. Prepare to pay 3 Euro for a tour that is much too long. He will try to sell you stuff at the end. - The restaurant at Ait Ben Haddou is NOT optional. You have to eat the restaurant they take you to. It is expensive, slow and not very good. - The hotel in the Dades Valley is not very good. Rooms are bare and not very clean. Shower does not have hot water. Wifi does not work. We paid 10 Euro extra for private room. - Next day we have a guide in Todra Valley. The guide requires a tip, so a few more Euro again. He will take you to a place where they stick you in a room and try to sell you rugs. - There was no stop in Rissani, as stated on website. - We paid 120 Euro extra (a lot of money!) for the luxury desert camp. So many problems with this! The morning camel ride is not included for the luxury camp. Again no hot water in the shower. They told us they would bring our luggage to the camp. It did not arrive. When we complained, the owner came and yelled at us because "it is not his problem." He suggested we get our luggage in the morning, leaving us in the camp with nothing but the clothes we are wearing. Finally, he angirly brought all of our things. All of this is not so bad, except that is cost us SO much extra money. We paid extra so we could relax, but instead it was just problems. - There was no sandboarding, as stated on the website. - There is a pool at the camp owner's lodge, but you will not have time to swim unless you want to skip breakfast. - If you choose to go on to Fez, there is no more minibus. It is instead a very small taxi. Really the list goes on. There were a lot of small problems like this. If you pay just the basic 89 euro and do not expect too much, maybe this is ok. But if you want to do any of the upgrades, you will pay a lot of money and be disappointed. We read some real horror stories with other tours, so maybe this is still the best one even with some of these problems.

My 3 day trip to Merzouga was really great. Tour started from Marrakech and we saw lots of great places on our way to Merzouga. First night we stayed in Gorges Dades and second night stay was in the tent in Sahara Desert. They also provided an option to return to Fes after Merzouga with a taxi with few extra payment which helped me to save lots of time and allow me to make my route in Morocco succesfully. The road from Marrakech to Merzouga almost takes 10 hours but our driver İbrahim was absolutely amazing. First of all he drived very carefully and he was always kind and smiling. He also provided lots of info about the country and he can speak very well English and also Arabic and French naturally. In the tour i had a time when my money is finished and there were no atm on the roads for a long time and i was unable to buy even a water to drink and he gave me 200 dirhams and told you can even send when you go back to your country it is no problem. This really saved my life and a thing that i will never forget in my life. And later when i found an atm and got the money i offered 250 and he also didnt accept it and told he only wants 200. He might be the best moroccan i ever met and i hope you can have a chance to join a tour with İbrahim’s driving.
