Credit cards :
Unfortunately we do not accept payments with credit cards because they are not very popluar nor practical in Morocco and they generate so many fees and hold some security risks.
Is it possible to pay the total with PayPal ? :
Normally we ask for the balance payments in cash because paypal also has many transaction fees and operational delays since it's an international institution. We can in some cases accept the full payment via paypal however a 5% fee will be applied to cover the extra transaction charges. In case you are considering this method, it is best to arrange the payment before the tour.
For a full refund, cancel at least 3 days in advance of the start date of the experience.
8 Days from Marrakech Desert tours Reviews
Amazing 8 days of private tour of Morocco
Said, owner of 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 were always great.He shared many interesting info especially on his hometown Merzouga which is the gateway to the desert.
8 days 7 nights from Marrakech to Merzouga & Fes
My wife and I went on a 8 days, 7 nights private tour to Merzouga (Erg Chebbi dunes) luxury camp. We had an amazing time! Mohammed our guide took great care of us. He knew all the side streets and seemed like he knew everyone. The drives were long but broken up with some amazing stops. We never really knew what to expect when Mohammed says to follow him down a street but he never disappointed. We loved being exposed to local culture. The dunes were incredible. It was well worth the experience. We lucked out as we were the only ones in our camp. The drive back to Marrakech seemed particularly long but Mohammed was there with his music to help pass the time. We would highly recommend! We wish we stayed a day longer.
