My niece and I did a private three-day-trip from Fes to Merzouga (Sahara Desert), finishing in Marrakech with Ibrahim, spending a night in the desert was an unforgettable experience in my life. Over and above that, we enjoyed a great dinner and Berber music with heart-warming people, also watching stars at that moment was just amazing. In addition to that, Ibrahim, our guide and driver, explained us about Moroccan culture and society with a sense of humor and drove safely while the time – We could discover Morocco more, thanks to him, we had lunch made by his mom in his house, being invited by his family was another great experience and really appreciate it.
