the 3 Days Tours from Fes to Marrakech
I did the 3 Days Tours from Fes to Marrakech, via the desert. I am totally satisfied with the service received by Moroccan Tours. First, the organization was perfect, the pick up at the hotel, the number of places visited compared to the time you had, etc. Our guide, Mohammed, speaks 5 languages and knows the history of his country perfectly. He knew how to inform us about all the places we visited. Plus, we felt like we were among friends. I sincerely believe that it is the best way to visit Morocco, outside the big cities, in a very comfortable means of transport. Thank you very much to the Moroccan Tours team and especially to Mohammed, for a perfect stay!:)
We are Ana and Fran, from Seville and we have traveled to Marrakech with 6 friends.
We have been lucky enough to get to know the city and its surroundings on a private trip with Moroccan Tours. We have made three excursions perfectly organized by Mohamed. Our guides, Hana, Hakim and Mohamed himself have taught us everything and have introduced us to their culture in perfect Spanish; with great kindness and respecting our wishes and making us feel at home. If you go anywhere in Morocco go with Moroccan Tours because it is a great success. We will surely repeat with them. Thank you so much for everything.
All excellent! The 3-day tour from Marrakech to Fez with one night in the desert and one night in a hotel in Dades is highly recommended.
Brahim was always very attentive and answered all the questions prior to the trip.
Aziz was our guide for the whole trip and his work was really good! He gave us details of everything we were seeing on the tours and answered all our questions, We also traveled with Mohamed, our driver, who took us to different places and made several stops so that we could know everything.
In short, excellent experience! Highly recommended for those who want to know the desert of Merzouga!
A great 3 days in the desert and Berber villages
We had a wonderful 3 days, and this experience made us want to discover other parts of Morocco, the South more unspoiled by tourism. We recommend this company for its professionalism, and Youssef’s perfect knowledge of the region. We learned a lot! Thank you again for this day,
Youssef made us discover the wonders of the Atlas, Berber villages, through the highlands, and at the end of the day, off-road in a desert of rocks, The landscapes are truly extraordinary.
Very well organized, reassuring, ideal for families and friends!
