6 day tour
Our driver, Addi, was excellent. He took us all over Morocco and was hilarious the whole time. Unforgettable. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
Awesome 6 Day trip from Marrakech to Erg Chebbi
Great experience with Morocco Tours agency! We had a private tour group of 8 university students that spent 6 days, traveling through Marrakech, the Atlas Mountains, Ait Ben Haddaou, Quarzazate, the Sahara Desert, Fes and Chechauen. Our tour guide was very personable knowledgeable about Morocco and made our trip awesome. Addi ensured that we had the best experience possible. Good and accommodation were great. Overall, would highly recommend Morocco Tours agency.
6 Day Private Tour: Marrakech to Tangier (via Merzouga Desert)
My group of friends consisted of two girls and two boys. Our drive was very easy to coordinate with which made all the difference when planning the tour. We were easily able to tailor the tour to exactly what we wanted! We were also extremely lucky to have Ali as our guide throughout the 6 day desert tour.
Our tour started in Marrakesh and finished in Marrakech. On the way we stopped in Dades Valley for one night, the Sahara desert for one night (Merzouga), Fez for one night and Chefchauen for two nights. Although there was a lot of driving over the 6 days, the driver made it very entertaining with his hilarious jokes and great music. He also allowed us to stop off at gorgeous view points along the way to have a break and take photos.
They organised tour guides for major sites, for example Ait Benhaddou Kzar and Fez. Side note: I would not recommend touring Fez without a guide. He also organised a camel ride into the Sahara desert in Merzouga - an incredible experience!
All of the hotels were perfect for our group of 4 and all provided us with amazing breakfast spreads each morning.
In summary, I couldn’t recommend this tour company enough! My friends and I had such an unforgettable week, all thanks to our great friend.
