What people are saying about Marrakech

This tour was amazing. Me and my girlfriend traveled all across Marocco and took some time to explore Merzouga as well, so we booked this trip. The driver Mohammed was very nice, answered all the possible questions we had and made bathroom breaks when neccessary with a smile on his face (and sunglasses ). The destinations themselves were nicely picked (we loved the Quazazarte and the small town where they recorded a lot of movies, the valley in the Atlas mountains was very nice as well and of course, the desert was amazing period) The one regret me and my girlfriend have about this trip is not taking a picture with the driver, because quite frankly we loved him. I hope you read this someday Mohammed, and we will come again when we visit Marocco♥️♥️

I had an excellent trip! Coming from the USA, I found the price of this day trip to be amazing. It included a full day of activities/exploration + 2 excellent meals. I’ll recommend this trip to any of my friends who choose to visit Morocco!

Great activity! Mohamed potato and chawi gave us a great experience at the Atlas mountains and around traditional villages, providing us with info about the area's history and traditions. Highly recommended!
