Finest tour with MTT
Moha was very responsive to our journey planning with budgeted cost. Based on the review from trip advisor, i chose to have 12 days journey with Morocco Tabiarte tours.
After 12 days journey, I think we make a right choice. The driver Ahmed and tour guides are very care about our safety, shared a lot of information and history to us about Morocco and bring us to the place what we want to go, even we sometimes have sudden change or spend too long to take good pictures, they still able to handle those little things and arrive accommodation before sunset, so that we can take a good rest for tomorrow journey.
It is wonderful to stay in luxury camp in Sahara for the camel drive in sunset and sunrise. In night, you will see a beautiful sky with full of stars, dance and sing with camp fire.
We were happy to stay in Morocco for this 12 days Journey, but we could see and experience the typical places and things in Morocco.
I will recommend this travel agency for your coming journey in Morocco. Read More Reviews
