Thanks to Moha’s trip plan, we enjoyed everything, including Tajine, camel trek, beautiful scenes, and ancient buildings, in Morocco. I was definitely impressed with the camel trek in the desert. In spite of the hot and dry weather there, the beautiful scenes in the desert are undoubtedly worth experiencing. Moreover, the night we stayed in the desert with local Moroccan music and dance was awesome. In addition to that, it’s certainly an unforgettable experience in life! Also, the driver is really nice and would like to introduce something special in Morocco during the drive! His family is nice and lovely! Generally speaking, it is a good travel agency in Morocco and I would highly recommend!!!
