    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 next morning, we watch the sunrise, yummy breakfast, more camel ride, more sight seeing and learning from Mustapher, until the 2nd night in a beautiful hotel, we loved it. Great hot shower, yummy buffet dinner, great accommodation, and yummy buffet breakfast in the morning. Highlight of our trip. LoveLove

    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.

  • Fes: Middle Atlas Mountains Walking and Trekking Tour

    4. Fes: Middle Atlas Mountains Walking and Trekking Tour

    Your tour will begin as you cross the small town of Immouzer Kandar, which is popular in the summer for its more temperate climate than that of Fes. Afterwards, you will make a detour to the amazing Lake Daiet Aoua, where you can admire the surrounding hills which are reflected in its waters, as well as the riders who use it as a playground. You will then arrive in Ifrane, where you are bound to be surprised by the unusual appearance of the city. With its sloping roofs, chimneys with huge stork nests, abundant flower beds, and chestnut trees, the city looks like a small corner of Europe.

  • Fes: Private Hiking Experience Along the Zalagh Hillside

    5. Fes: Private Hiking Experience Along the Zalagh Hillside

    Not far from the Palais Amani Boutique Hotel, the Zalagh hillside range sits majestically above Fez's sprawling medina. In Berber, Zalagh means male kid goat, and a hike along the backbone of this massive beast of a hillside gives you a taste of the Berber way of life less than 30 minutes from the urban labyrinth below. After meeting your guide at the meeting point, take the road that winds steeply up from the medina and plunge into the Berber countryside full of ancient olive groves, hidden from the city on the other side of the mountain. Your driver will then turn off onto a dirt track and for 15-20 minutes you can take in the landscape dotted with vernacular farmsteads, livestock, and crops. As you go, marvel at the scenery of the Rif mountains stretching out as far as the eye can see. Next, take a 1.5-hour hike at a pace easy enough for even inexperienced hikers to Zalagh's summit ...

Tour that absolutely deserves to be done. Our guide Mustapha was excellent, he spoke perfect English and answered every question we asked him. The hours in the car are not few, given the long distances you travel, but it is definitely worth it because you have the opportunity to see many things and above all many different landscapes. The night in a tent (I recommend the luxury) certainly the most particular experience. Also interesting is the visit to the city of Rissani, with a very prepared guide. Everything took place in a situation of total tranquility and security.

We definitely recommend this experience to anyone visiting Morocco for at least 4 days. There is quite a large amount of time spent in the car, though it is worth the effort and wait. You will enjoy the trip, seeing breathtaking natural landscapes, and the destinations, experiencing true customs as a local. Both drivers (we had Simo and Mohamed) and the guides (at the desert camp and in Rissani market) are well informed, flexible, extremely kind and professional! The hotel and its facilities in ouarzazate were simply perfect.

Great tour in a small group (6-8 people) with Abder, our fantastic driver who took us from Fes to Marrakech, sharing his knowledge and humour on the trip. Highly recommended trip to see the desert and Atlas Mountains if you are going from Fes to Marrakech!

Our guide Mohamed was awesome! In general we loved the trip
