The beauty, majesty, and wonder of Morocco was brought to life by Ismail, our tour guide from MTT for 8 days in morocco, starting from Casablanca. Furthermore, Moha explained the history and culture of Morocco through Rabat, chefchaouen, Fez, Merzouga, and also Marrakesh. In addition to that, it was a wonderful experience that started with Moha who helped us select our tour. And continued with Ismail who ensured that our time in Morocco was very memorable. Additionally, his knowledge of the county’s history, people, food, towns and cities are remarkable. A highlight of our tour was when Moha invited us into his home to meet his family and enjoy a very delicious Berber pizza. Moha- thank you.
We highly recommend you to visit Morocco – we fell in love with the country and the warm people. Plan to return and when we can, last but not least, we will most assuredly, use Morocco Tabiarte Tours.

Morocco tabiarte tours was a perfect find for the kind of trip. My Dad and I wanted a plan: private, affordable, and see as much of Morocco as made sense to cram into 8 days from Casablanca Towards Chefchaouen, FES, Sahara desert, Ouarzazate and Marrakech staying in beautiful Riads. Moreover, they did an amazing job recommending where to go, what to see and also where to stay – Overall, the true magic comes from the guide you get paired with. In our case Brahim, a knowledgeable English-speaking driver, was the best we have ever had, providing special attention to our needs in every way.
In addition to that, He was charming, funny, extremely well-versed in the history of everything we saw. Exceedingly polite and at the same time also warm, friendly, and just a lot of fun to be around. Likewise, planning and communication was excellent. Overall, I would definitely do it again and would certainly use MTT to do so. Read More Morocco tour’s reviews
