Our 5 days tour from Casablanca was amazing. Additionally, the food was great (try the lamb!) and the accommodation was satisfactory. On the other hand, from natural scenery to city tours, we savored our moments in Morocco. Besides, the camel trekking in the Sahara and the city tour in Marrakech were the most unforgettable. A million thanks to Moha and also Ibrahim for arranging this entire trip for us. Moreover, they really saved us a lot of time and effort, and made our trip fairly enjoyable.

Everything about the tour was fabulous – Our guide/driver Hmad was so knowledgeable. The hotels, Riads and the food at restaurants were all great. In addition to that, we stayed in nice areas, so we felt safe to take walks in the evenings after dinner. We learned so much about Morocco that we did not know. This was an experience that changed my life and deepened my faith. Overall, I hope to visit it again and would definitely use Morocco Tabiarte Tours again.

My brother and I have just completed a 5 days Morocco itinerary with Morocco Tabiarte tours and our tour guide/driver, Hmad. Furthermore, we had a memorable holiday and would highly recommend this Morocco Travel itinerary. Our guide had a wealth of knowledge and made our vacation experience unforgettable. On the other hand, we have many special memories of new friends made, places off the beaten track and also experiencing more of Morocco than we would have if we toured ourselves. Moreover, all hotels and riads were great and the restaurants recommendations by Hmad were amazing. Weather forced a change in plans (the snow in Tizi N’tichka and Ifrane), but Hmad’s plan B was better than what was missed. It was so sad to say goodbye to Morocco, and we will be back soon for sure.
