Here are reviews about our 12 Days Tour from Tangier
12 Days Tour from Tangier to Marrakech and back.
OMAR was such an excellent and easy going guide. Our 12 day trip started with picking us up from Tangier and driving us to Chefchouen through the High and Mid Atlas mountains to Merzouga (Sahara Desert) to Marrakech and Essaouira before flying out of Marrakech..
His recommendations on food and arrangement with local guides in Fez/Marrakech and accommodations throughout the trip were excellent. He allowed us to free time to explore in safer smaller towns by ourselves which was great to try to familiarize ourselves with the local area.
The drive to Merzouga was absolutely breath-taking and relaxing. MBarak ensured that we were well entertained with music and conversation during our long drives. I highly recommend MBarak and his tour company to anyone who is looking for an adventure in Morocco for the reliability, comfort, entertainment, wonderful recommendations and flexibility to customize your trip.
12 days tour from Tangier –Fez- Marrakesh- and Sahara desert
Had a very enjoyable experience with Addi while traveling from Tangier to Marrakesh for 12 days. This trip was a true learning experience, and I was very impressed with Moroccan hospitality.
We covered Chefchauen, Fes, an overnight stay in the Sahara by camel ride, the Dades Valley, Marrakesh, and Essaouira on the Atlantic coast.
The pre-arranged restaurants and hotels were of very high quality, and the local guides in Fes and Marrakesh shared a lot of useful information that made the trip all the better. Addi is a kind, funny companion and guide.
I would wholeheartedly recommend this company for an engaging (and comfortable!) tour you can customize to fit your needs.
