We had an amazing 4-day Morocco Sahara tour with MTT. As a group of three women traveling from Marrakech to Fes and into the Desert, we could not have asked for a better guide. From my initial inquiry, Moha – our trip organizer was friendly, professional, and quick to respond. He planned our 4-day Marrakech itinerary perfectly, allowing enough time at each stop without feeling rushed. Though I asked many questions, Moha happily accommodated my requests and provided energetic, informative tours full of fascinating facts about Morocco.

Our driver was not only informative, but also made the tour enjoyable with his friendly demeanor. After comparing many tour companies, MTT’s price was very reasonable, and our lodgings were first-rate. They delivered everything promised with no surprises or issues. I highly recommend entrusting your Morocco trip to MTT’s trustworthy and capable hands.
