    We were so lucky to have Abdu as our driver on the three day Sahara tour from Marrakech to Fes, because he had also taken us to the day tour to Essaouira we knew he would show us the best places. He stopped along the way so we could take the best pictures. Often times we saw other drivers pass by while we were taking pictures or looking at special landmarks along the way. From the different stops we made, people we met and places we saw, because of Abdu, we learned so much about the Moroccan people and their culture. A truly unforgettable experience. The landmarks we saw along the way, the people we met and the night in the Sahara desert are a lifetime of unforgettable memories. The van we rode in was very comfortable and air conditioned, which tracking in July was a must. We wish we could have taken Abdu along the way for the rest of our Marokko trip. We were so sad when we had to say our goodbyes. Best driver, best trip, most amazing memories a must do while in Morocco!!!!

Thanks to our guide Abdou for a fun and safe journey. The road was hard and long, but Abdou made it as comfortable as possible. We had many different photo stops. I learned a lot of interesting facts about life in Morroco thanks to our guide.

Very nice day in the company of our driver Omar and our guide. Regarding the homestay meal I expected more from a typical family, it was more like a big hostel kind. The meal, however, was good. The magnificent desert. Thank you

It was an absolute pleasure getting to know Mohammad and Abdul. Very kind, courteous and patient. We had a lovely day going around the atlas mountains and we loved the camel ride in Agafey.
