We did a six-day/five-night customized Morocco tour organized by Morocco Tabiarte Tours which included Casablanca, Rabat, Fez, glamping in the Sahara Desert, Ouarzazate, and also Marrakech. That’s a lot of territory in just a few days, but it went like clockwork thanks to Hamid, our excellent guide/driver. He was always on time, courteous, helpful, and patient with our requests also. Besides, he was even kind enough to take us to his home (near the Sahara) to have tea with his family. Overall, a wonderful experience and highly recommend doing this tour with MTT and choose hamid.

Our travel through Morocco could not have been better without Moha, thanks to him and also our amazing driver. We were originally just going to go to a few cities. And try to explore on your own. At the end, we are very thrilled we chose this tour company instead. We have been all over the world, so we were excited to get to see Morocco. Our original plan was to hit Marrakech, Sahara Desert and maybe another city and explore on our own. Last minute, we decided to book our tour with Moha. He made all the reservations and also tailored the itinerary to our interests.
Hmad met us at the airport, and we headed out on our adventure in our own 4×4. Over the course of 6 days desert tour, we drove all the south of the country. At each stop, we were shown sights we would never have experienced on our own. Being accustomed to traveling in Europe, we were unprepared for the narrow and confusing streets of Morocco; especially how hidden things are from those streets. Thankfully, we had a local guide almost all the time. Each guide led us to incredible places that from the street seemed like just another private door.
After each day of exploring, we were taken to a great Riad. Each time, Hmad made sure we were comfortable. All the places we stayed provided tasty food. One of the best nights was spent in the Berber camp. The employees served us an amazing dinner after our camel ride to camp.
Best of all for us was how well everyone treated our 2-year-old kid. From providing a car seat to get him a ride to just entertaining him through all the driving, we really appreciated everything they did for him. By the end of the trip, he was very sad to leave Morocco and Hmad. Lastly, we have been to local cooperatives where we were able to purchase genuine Moroccan goods at affordable prices. While we didn’t expect to purchase much when we have gone there, these crafts were too nice to pass up. Each time we bought something, Hmad carefully packed it away in the car for us.
If you are thinking of going to Morocco, book with this company. every day of your trip, you will be so glad you did. we had an amazing time and you will too. Read More Morocco tour’s reviews
