Awesome Experience for an Amazing 2-Days Trip to Morocco Desert

My friend and I travelled for 2 weeks around Morocco; we chose to do the 2-day desert tour from Fes with MTT. Our driver and the tour guides were very knowledgeable and helpful. We did a private tour. They met us at the accommodation and took good care of us the entire trip. All in all, it was a tremendous experience and I would recommend Morocco Tabiarte Tours again. We are planning our next holiday to Morocco and also plan to use them again as well!
