173 Reviews Authentic & Genuine Reviews from our Travellers
We are a group of three girls joining the 4 days trip from Marrakech to Fes to the Sahara Desert and ending in Fez. Choosing this private tour is the best decision I have made. From day 1 when I started to contact Mohamed, he has been very friendly, professional and unbelievably responsive (normally he just replies straight away or within 15 mins). The whole program is very well planned and the timing for each attraction is perfect. I have asked him for a lot of extra help, and he said yes to all of them and put in 100% effort. He is also energetic and informative; he makes you laugh and at the same time tell you a lot of fun facts of Morocco. Our driver Hamme is also very nice, he picks us up punctually and drives nicely and safely.
I have compared a lot of different companies before applying for the tour and Mohamed definitely provides a very reasonable price. The 3 nights of accommodation we stayed in were superb and worth the price. There is no cheat, we did everything of the schedule like he sent me beforehand. They are just so trustworthy and following them, you won’t need to worry about a thing!

Everything was well organized and all the stops were mesmerizing in the Atlas Mountains, Berber villages, Sahara Desert. The Food in each restaurant was a fair price. Our driver/guide Hammi was so kind and friendly with knowledge and a hard worker. If you are in Morocco and wondering what else must see of the country instead of only Marrakech, then you definitely need to do this tour. You won’t regret it.
John / 5 out of 5 / Group Traveller / 23 February 2022
Last February 2022, my family and I spent about 10 days in Morocco, around Casablanca, Marrakech, Essaouira. Moha was our tour guide for the 4 day desert tour from Marrakech to Fes and was incredibly fabulous! He catered to our interests while making perfect suggestions for our family about what to do and to see. Moreover, He also taught us so much about Morocco, in regard to its culture, tradition, landscape and also the environment.
Besides, we were so thankful to have him take the reins driving us around each day. Likewise, Moha was knowledgeable, kind and patient the whole Morocco desert tour. He really made the trip that much more special! It would not have been the same without him, and we would not have gotten to experience as much of this charming country. Overall, Many thanks to Moha and Morocco Tabiarte Tours! We will be back soon for another adventure. Read More Morocco tour’s reviews
