These 4 days from Marrakech to Merzouga was all we expected and more. Our tour guide Moha was the best. He provided a good deal of interesting information at our different stops and along the way in the vehicle. The stops along the route were well planned, and the accommodation provided a restful evening and night. Mohammed, our driver, was very professional and drove the vehicle with skill. Despite, Mohammed was very friendly and also very helpful person with the luggage and getting our bags to the rooms. I believe Moha made the trip very enjoyable on all fronts. Last but not least, He was patient with us and answered all our questions. We enjoyed this trip very much from start to finish. Thanks a lot for a well planned and informative trip.

Excellent time in Morocco ! Hey fellow travellers. this review is from a girl who has lived all her life in a desert in Rajasthan, India. I visited Morocco with very little expectation for anything different – But what a memorable experience !!!!!
The whole package was carefully designed to make the journey worth our money, and especially the people who made every day so informed and adventurous i.e. hmad and Moha (our travel guides from Marrakech to the Sahara desert). They made our journey very safe and comfortable, introduced us to nomad people, their food, dance, their daily life rituals, minerals, fossils and the list goes on…
1.the standard of their hotels is exemplary with fine dinning experience and lovely breakfasts.
2. Everything advertised on the package was delivered with utmost care.
3. Enough time to relax and take pictures between travel spots.
4.the luxury camp in the desert was truly the best with camel safari and bonfire in the night and also amazing night sky view from tent location.
5. Specially enjoyed the conversations with Moha and hmad while travelling. They know so much as their natives, and I like details in travel.
I had the most fun because I felt safe and supported by the kindest hearts of the morocco land. I’d highly recommend their service because trust me I’m writing the feedback sitting on a Marrakesh café on my last day and already thinking of coming back soon. Not only that, but I’m very thankful and wish them all the very best. Hope you guys have the chance to meet such kind people for your adventurous time in Morocco. Highly highly highly recommend it.
Truly worth it !!!!!! Totally AWESOME. Read More Morocco tour’s reviews
