Wow!!! Where to start. This was the best trip we have ever been on. My friends of five (4 boys) loved every minute of our 3 days desert trip from Ouarzazate to Merzouga, and also on to Marrakech. The beauty of Morocco was a highlight, but the real star was our phenomenal driver, Moha. He was amazing and attentive to all our needs, and also from the get go made us very comfortable.
