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. By the end of the trip, he felt practically like family to us all. we are still asking if we will see him again. Moreover, He makes for a wonderful conversation (in multiple languages). Furthermore, the tour’s accommodation was all very good, including lunch stops and overnight stays. book this Morocco Travel company with confidence and ask for Moha by name. you won’t regret it!
