During our 2-week trip to Morocco, my friend and I opted for a 2-day private desert tour from Fes with Morocco Tabiarte Tours. From the moment they picked us up at our accommodation, the knowledgeable and helpful driver and guides took great care of us, making it an unforgettable adventure. Their excellent service and attention to detail made this Morocco private tour an incredible experience that I highly recommend. We’re already planning our next Moroccan Desert holiday with MTT!

Family Traveller

We had an unforgettable 2-day Sahara Desert adventure from Fes. Our exceptional guide Hamid made us feel like family throughout the entire Morocco desert tour. His daily insights and attention to our safety made the journey truly memorable. Staying at the Erg Chebbi dunes and riding camels to the luxurious camp felt like being in a movie. Upgrading to the luxurious camp was a great decision – it was brand new, spotless, and very comfortable. We especially want to thank the welcoming camp staff for the mesmerizing music around the campfire under the full moon and stars. The return trip to Fes was just as amazing. For the best local tour company in Morocco to explore this incredible country, look no further.

Our unforgettable 2-day tour from Fes to the majestic Merzouga Desert was flawlessly orchestrated by Moha, our excellent Moroccan tour operator. The itinerary, tailored to our preferences, unfolded flawlessly—from the enchanting Middle Atlas Mountains to the breathtaking desert landscapes, with lodgings and meals that exceeded our expectations along the way.

Special praise goes to our outstanding driver and guide, Ibrahim. His comfortable, clean vehicle, stocked daily with water, added to our comfort. Ibrahim’s friendly nature, timeliness, and extensive knowledge of Moroccan history enriched the experience as he shared insights into local culture and customs, taught us Berber phrases, and kept us entertained with his sense of humor—by tour’s end, he felt like family. Our only regret is that we didn’t have more time there!
