For anyone coming to Morocco and wanting to book a tour. I recommend it to visit the cities described here!!! We are very satisfied with the tour itself especially the guide Younes who knew a lot and the driver Moncef who could guide us well in the atlas mountains with his driving skills, what a nice duo with whom you could laugh and they took us to the best and right places. The booking agency easy tranfers I am a little less satisfied with. We had arranged everything through the app get your guide and they wanted extra information to see that we came from Europe. We ourselves are Moroccan and found this very strange. All in all they apologized and upgraded our hotel to a four star. The guide and driver were on time and very relaxed.

Blue town is my favorite place in Morocco! It is super charming and it feels very different than other parts of Morocco. The tour is long but worth it. Our tour guide Suka was very nice and local tour guide in Chefchaouen was very knowledgeable!

This was a very enjoyable trip. One of our guides, Soukaina, tried really hard in order to keep everyone satisfied. The town is really amazing and worth the hours on the (bumpy) road. A must!

Booked a day in advance and picked up on time after WhatsApp contact. Good transport and the trip was as sold.

We are delighted to have taken a guide to visit these exceptional sites.
