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 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 and I would highly recommend!!!

This Morocco travel itinerary 6 days was included most morocco highlights. It was one of the reasons we chose MTT. On tour, our guide/driver Hammi was the best. Besides, he was very knowledgeable, brilliant, and always prepared and on time. On the other hand, his recommendations for restaurants were spot on, as well as the hotels we stayed in, so beautiful and the best. In addition to that, it takes a special personality to handle over ten travelers and their wants and needs over a 6-day period, and he responded to the challenge with grace and patience. Overall, we highly recommend this tour, the agency, and especially the guide Hammi to anyone wishing to visit Morocco.
