I had the most amazing time in Morocco thanks to Mohammed and Hassan. They made sure we were taken care of at all times. In addition to that, we were an extremely large group (10 total) and they could not have been any more patient and accommodating to our needs. Besides, we were all men and I could not stress how respectful they were and how safe I personally felt during our time with them. Both Mohammed and Hassan were very knowledgeable of Morocco’s terrain, history, and current affairs. Last but not least, we learned quite a great amount from them, which made my experience even richer.
Overall, I will recommend them to anyone, small or large group with my eyes closed. I hope to book them again for the western Morocco experience in the near future, and thank you so much guys for making this One week Morocco itinerary memorable.
