This tour is simply amazing ! It is hard so see such a diversity in only one day anywhere else in the world. The driver was very knowledgeable and fun and the car was very nice and had aircon which was much appreciated in August! We were very happy to see areas that are not the most highlighted among tourists like the medina of Meknes that nobody recommended to us while it's a real jewel! I highly recommend this tour !

My parents were very happy with the visit! The driver was on top of the best and the various guides were very friendly! Thank you for the visit in French and if I can just give you some advice; adapt the walking pace for older people;) Another huge thank you for this day: D !!

Fantastic way to see this amazing country and get a deeper look into all of its land and people. So much better than a surface tour with just dates and old buildings.

Trip was very informative. Our only negative is the guide do not understand our English questions. His English was fine.

Visit the Marina under construction and the ancient city of Tangier in the mountains.
