My tour with MTT was excellent in all ways. We were 3 people on this tour, which consisted mainly of private transport for 5 days from Tangier to Marrakech.
Communicating with Moha via email was easy and clear. Moreover, Moha was very warm and attentive to our needs. Likewise, he helped us customize a 5-day itinerary according to our interests. Furthermore, He was also honest in his recommendations and gave us great local tips to help us while on the Journey.

This Tangier tour was excellent value for money, well-organized by Moha. We did upgrade our accommodation and stayed in wonderful hotels & Riads in an amazing location near the city’s center. We did visit the blue pearl of Morocco, the cultural Fes city and rode camel in the Erg Chebbi, as well as the most highly recommended activity in the Sahara Desert: Overnight in the nomad tent. Tour guide and driver, Hmad was knowledgeable, friendly and really brought history and facts alive whilst still making it enjoyable. Moreover, you get picked up and dropped off for tours and to and from hotel to airport. The company team during the tour was extremely helpful, and I would recommend them.
