A Great place for Family Holidays – Private Morocco Trip from Casablanca
My family and I had a perfect experience with Morocco Tabiarte Tours, planning a Holiday to Morocco starting in Casablanca for us. Moha and our driver/guide were very accommodating to our interests and preferences. We were on a pretty tight schedule, with only a week in Morocco. But the Moha truly delivered on a variety of experiences that showed the best of Morocco, from the blue city to the Sahara desert. Not forget, many things to Ibrahim who went above and beyond as the driver. He was fantastic and told us so many interesting stories about his country. He also arranged a birthday party for my 19 years old son, which was a memorable surprise!
We had The Most Unforgettable 7 Days in Morocco (1 week)
I had the most amazing time in Morocco thanks to Mohammed and lahcen. 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 lahcen 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 Travel itinerary memorable.
