Awesome tour in Morocco

The encounter with the Sahara Desert is quite a spectacle and an adventure in itself, but having been guided by experts who love their work, who respect their environment, and who know how to spread that love for their environment is simply a prize. I can only say that thanks to Yusuf and all his team of great Berber connoisseurs of the Sahara, we appreciate this gift of nature. They educated us in their love for their customs, and we return home with one of the best and most special moments of our lives. Without a doubt, touring Morocco is a prize for a traveler and highly recommended. I give it a thousand stars! I want to recommend touring in Morocco to those who are willing to hire a travel agency; they will not disappoint. Thank you for the VIP service.

Excellent service

An unforgettable experience with great professionals The journey you have always dreamed of Youssef and Hassan are great hosts in their country. Without a doubt, they are the perfect managers to make a tailor-made trip, adapting to the budget you want and the instructions you give them. Getting to know Morocco for the first time through them was a luxury. Visiting all the imperial cities with Youssef as an experienced driver and enjoying the magic of the desert with Hassan make Morocco a destination to always want to return to. In memory, there are always the moments lived. I look forward to coming back and, of course, recommending it to all of you who are still looking forward to discovering new places.

A lifetime experience

We hired the 5-day and 4-night excursion from Tangier to the Merzouga desert. The whole trip is very interesting: crossing the Atlas between mountains of 4000 meters, the contrasts in the Dades, Draa, and Ounila valleys, the aridity in the mountains and green palm groves in the river bed, the route of the Kashbas, and the strong point of the trip, the Erg Cherbbi desert with its dromedaries, night in haimas, and Berber songs in the starry night. As important as the landscape, the people on the road Our guide was Hamid, pleasant and with perfect Spanish, an excellent driver with whom you go with complete confidence. The minivan is very comfortable, and the riads in Dades and Ourzazate are excellent. Lunch at a desert restaurant in Erfoud was unforgettable. There are many kilometers of car, but it gets along well. They have everything perfectly coordinated, with exquisite punctuality. To make a point, perhaps provide a little more of the historical context. A highly recommended trip to discover Morocco.
