Tour was estatic and well planned, Our Chief Trip Operator Jamal, made sure we are well taken care off, and were comfortable all through our trip, the Hotels were hand picked and beautifully situated in the right areas of the city! Mohamud our Chauffeur made sure we were safe every minute and was very patient taking us around from city to city - over all we drove 1900 kilometers and 6 days with Mohamud! This tour is well recommended to anyone who is looking for a 6 day detailed trip in Morocco! Cons: The drives were long, but that is part of the plan and cities are far, if one wants to cover main portions of Morocco. Morocco - travel best during Months of March thru June and September thru November- it was a bit cold when we went around, but for us being from cold places did not bother much!

We had the best tour with our guide Ali. We missed our original booking as we couldn’t get phones to work so we couldn’t find where we should have been. I emailed to apologise and asked if it were possible to reschedule and they were very accomodating and let us go 2 days later than planned. Ali was very courteous and took us round the whole of Marrakesh in the 2 hour time slot. Recommend Ali 100%. Had loads of time for us and took some great photos for us too. Thank you Ali. My husband and I loved it. Colette & Kevin

It was really great, especially Mr. Zakaria was very friendly and polite and made a big effort to speak the German language, which of course added a lot of charm to the trip. Simply great👍

Super fun tour. Seen a lot of Marrakech and got a good impression of the city.

Great experience! Tour guide was patient and helpful!
