We loved our tour. Mustapher, our driver, our tour guide, is great. He is prompt, knowledgeable, detail in all aspect, and good conservationist. We are a group of 3 friends+ Patrick, who we met in this tour, total 4. We had so much fun, good conversation, good information regarding Morocco, the country, different types of cultures, family etc. We get to see so much of this region, from Fez to Marrakech, different villages, towns, "cities" etc. He made different stops for us to experience the towns, and stretches. It's a lot of car time, but a lot of interesting, fantastic view. The Sahara desert is amazing, sunset, camel ride, Berber tent, dinner, camp fire and dancing.

The journey is long and arduous but definitely worth it. We saw so many beautiful places and the highlight / the desert was just an unforgettable experience
