Reviews about our 8-day tour Fes to Imperial cities and Merzouga
8-day Tour Fes to Imperial Cities and Merzouga
The trip was great and we are both glad we did it. The driver Youssef was friendly, informative, and showed us a lot. I glad we got down to see the deserts in the southern part of the country and got to drive through the Atlas Mountains.
A trip to Morocco wouldn't really be complete if you didn't get down south and such a good way to get from Fez to Marrakech. The hotels were very enjoyable; a nice combination of being in small towns and out-of-the-way places and very comfortable with good food.
It certainly was more luxurious compared to my old hostel days. We both did like the hotels and the staff at all of them were good. Youssef and the 8-day Tour Fes to Imperial Cities and Merzouga did take us to a lot of places that would not necessarily be easy to get to by public transportation. The scenery and historical sites were good and enjoyed walking around the places we stayed at.
Although I can't really say I like riding a camel, that night in the desert was great too. The deep desert camp is way more comfortable I imagined and it was a good time. So all and all, we are both happy with the trip and would do another one with you. Very happy with the places we visited in Morocco and got a good feel for the country in our 3 plus weeks in Morocco.
And thanks for arranging the trip so quickly. I emailed you for the first time on a Friday night and took off on the trip the following Thursday.
Amazing private 8-day Tour Fes to Imperial Cities and Merzouga
Said at Morocco Tours Agency was prompt in answering our pre-trip queries and after reading all the good reviews, a small deposit was what it took to secure our trip booking.
Omar, our driver/guide was always with a smile, and his humble yet joyous nature together with his safe driving in a 4X4 vehicle made us felt comfortable during the many days of long driving.
We were able to stop whenever we wanted to take photos and his recommendation for our lunches was always great. He shared much interesting info especially on his hometown Merzouga which is the gateway to the desert.
Accommodation provided were in Riads (local guest houses) and all were comfortable with decent breakfast and dinners provided in the package. Even the desert camp was good with flush toilets and shower facilities.
The camel ride into the camp was an experience. It was quite chilly at night but the wonderful sight of the stars was really amazing and it provided a distraction from the cold.
Best Way to combine imperial cities & the Sahara Desert!
We couldn't have asked for a better tour guide. He was extremely accommodating and knowledgeable. The hotel that was arranged was lovely and the camel trek was an unforgettable experience.
We will definitely be using this company again and would highly recommend it to anyone traveling to Morocco! Thank you for everything- you made our trip to Morocco better than we could have possibly imagined!
