The Best Morocco 8 Day Tour so far! 

We booked these 8 days tour from Marrakech through Morocco Tabiarte Tours. The trip was full of incredible things to see and do in Morocco, however, the days and nights just flew by as we were having a great time. Furthermore, what made all the difference was our wonderful tour guide, Moha. While he certainly knew all the historic details of all the attractions, he personalized the experiences of the various groups on the van. His warm nature and attention to details certainly added to our experience. On top of that, it also helped he knew many of the locals, and we were given top notched service I think because of these relationships. We highly recommend this tour and if you won the tour guide Moha like us, this will be an unforgettable experience. Read More Morocco tour’s reviews
