What people are saying about Drâa-Tafilalet

Everything was better than my expectation. Hassan, our driver was very friendly and professional. He picked us up at the hotel on time and also drop us to our hotel in Fez. He helped us a lot and very flexible. The car was comfortable and we were very lucky to get kind of a private tour because no other tourists booked the same date as us. The hotel was very nice and clean. The landscapes along the way is incredible and our driver showed us local restaurants for lunch. The highlight was the sunset in the desert and riding the camel. Simply unforgettable. It's a very long journey with the car but I loved it and already used to this kind of trip. The camp in the desert was also clean, we got our own bathroom. But it could be very cold at night (we visited in February) so bring warm clothes!

We had a great trip driving through Morocco! Our guide spoke relatively good English, the country was fantastic, and we were able to cover a lot of ground. The driving in Morocco is a little bit aggressive and scary, so it was very nice to have a guide to take care of this. We were happy with the restaurants and stops that were made for the road trip on all 3 days.

Simply marvellous! Abdorahman is highly professional, knowledgeable and very reliable
