Dream Trip: 5-Day Morocco Tour Itinerary

The Tangier tour proved to be excellent value, skillfully organized by Moha. Opting for upgraded accommodations, we enjoyed stays in fantastic hotels and Riads conveniently located near the city center. Our journey included visits to the Blue Pearl of Morocco, the cultural city of Fes, a camel ride in Erg Chebbi dunes, and the highly recommended activity of spending a night in a nomad tent in the Sahara Desert. Our tour guide and driver, Hmad, brought history and facts to life with knowledge, friendliness, and an enjoyable approach. Additionally, the convenience of being picked up and dropped off for tours and transfers between hotels and the airport added to the overall positive experience. The team from the company during the tour was exceptionally helpful, and I wholeheartedly recommend their services.
