Unforgettable Zagora Experience!

My wife and I went on a tour with this travel agency for 2 days starting from Marrakech. We saw beautiful views and the people were nice and friendly. We especially loved spending the night in the desert of Zagora. Although we only had two days, the tour was well-planned. We are grateful to Touring in Morocco!
