12-Day Desert Tour in Morocco from Casablanca Reviews

Highly Recommended Tour!

Make sure you add Chefchaouen to your Morocco trip. We spent two great days there. The people were friendly and welcoming. The city is beautiful - it's all blue and white. It's really amazing to see. We also went to Merzouga and rode camels into the sunset. This was my favorite part of the trip. Touring in Morocco helped make it even better!

Aziz is Super!

We had a great trip in Morocco with a guide named Aziz who took us around in a car. He was really good at driving and made our trip comfortable. We had a planned itinerary and got to ride camels and go on a fun trip on a rainy day to the Chebbi dunes. We met Youssef in the desert and he was really nice to us. Overall, it was a great experience and we have no complaints. We'll cherish the memories we made on this trip.

Camel Ride in Merzouga Desert

Me and my brother wanted to ride a camel in Morocco, so we reserved a tour from Casablanca. We visited many charming places like Chefchaouen, Fes, Marrakech, and more. Our guide Mohamed helped us have fun riding camels and going on a safari tour in Merzouga. We stayed in pleasant tents and had an awesome time. Mohamed helped us get back to Casablanca safely for our flight home. Overall, our trip was well-planned and we highly suggest it to anyone who wants to have an exciting adventure in Morocco.
