I recommend this tour because Idir was nice to us and explained a lot about his country. We travelled for 11 days with this agency from Tangier, everything was explained clearly and Idir's service was above everything. We highly recommend this tour to people who want to visit Morocco.
Full trip experience in Morocco, we are a family of 3 people, we had an outsnading 11 days desert tour. We loved our day tour with Ali in Fes, we spent a night in Berber Merzouga tents. We went to Marrakech and Essaouira. The tour was well explained before we booked it, Rachid was responsive to all our questions. His driver Idir was very polite and could speak English, which we didn't expect. Thank you Morocco Tours.
