Amazing Morocco Experience with Aziz as Guide

Aziz was our friendly tour guide on a five-day trip from Casablanca to the beautiful Moroccan desert, mountains, and beach. We even extended our trip to go on a boat ride because we loved the country so much. Aziz told us interesting stories about their culture and people, and answered all our questions. We really enjoyed the trip and want to go back soon. We recommend this travel agency because they were professional and affordable.

Unforgettable 5-Day Moroccan Desert Tour with Lhoussain

We went on a 5-day trip to Morocco starting in Casablanca, a busy city full of history and culture. Lhoussain, our guide, knew a lot about Morocco and drove us around to many places like Fes, the Atlas Mountains, and Merzouga Desert. Riding camels into the desert was incredible and we slept in a traditional camp. Lhoussain kept us entertained with stories about Morocco during the long car drives. We learned a lot and had a great time on the trip. We're already looking forward to another adventure with Lhoussain soon!
