5-Day Tangier to Marrakech Desert Tour Reviews

Awesome Tour in Morocco

When we went on a trip to the Sahara Desert, we had a great time because the guides who showed us around were experts who really love the environment and respect it. They taught us about their culture and how they take care of the desert. It was a special moment that we'll never forget and we're grateful to Yusuf and his team for making it possible. I highly recommend visiting Morocco and going on a tour with a travel agency. We were treated like VIPs and it was amazing!

Excellent Service

Youssef and Hassan are great professionals who made my trip to Morocco unforgettable. They are excellent hosts who can organize a customized trip according to your budget and needs. Together, we visited all the beautiful imperial cities and explored the magical Sahara desert. Youssef drove us with expertise and Hassan showed us all the wonders of the desert. I miss those moments very much and I will definitely return to Morocco. I highly recommend Youssef and Hassan to anyone who wants to explore new destinations.

A Lifetime Experience

We went on a 5-day, 4-night trip from Tangier to Marrakech and the Merzouga desert. We saw lots of cool stuff: colorful mountains, different types of valleys, dry areas, green areas, old buildings, and the cool desert with camels, tents, and songs. Our guide was Hamid and he was really nice and spoke Spanish well. He was also a good driver, so we felt safe. We rode in a comfortable minivan and stayed at nice places. We had a really good lunch at a restaurant in the desert. We drove a lot, but it was okay because everything was planned well and on time. This trip is highly recommended if you want to explore Morocco and learn about its history.
