Fantastic trip with Ali and Aziz which are very knowledgeable and cautious driver. It is a good introduction to the east of Morocco. Having a guide and driver also mean you can ask a lot of question during the hours spent in the car along with discovering the local music :D. 100% recommend. Ali and Aziz really made that trip extra special.

Highly recommend the tour to get an overview of various regions in Morocco. Be mindful: there’s lots of driving, but it’s necessary if you wanna see the gorges and the dunes, and our guides made it super fun. Bug shoutout to Aziz and Ali, they were kind, fun, knowledgable and drove perfectly. Definitely go for it with your eyes closed. They will bring you to places where they sell rugs and Argan oil: the carpet price is OK (even if the story isn’t true) but the oil is hugely overpriced. It’s nice to see to get some info but don’t buy (the guides don’t push for a purchase at all).
