Overall rating

the tour was very interesting, our driver Redi was very kind, professional and drove carefully throughout the entire route. the journey from Marrakech to Fès is very long, we made a couple of stops along the way and a lunch break in a place where a nice, multilingual gentleman brought us lunch, which was very tasty. Maybe I would have avoided visiting the dam because there is little water. in Fezs the guide who accompanied us was also kind, professional and she also spoke several languages and gave us a very interesting tour. the Riad where we slept is very typical and close to the Mediina. the capital Rabat is monumental and the mausoleum truly majestic. Then Redi took us to Casablanca in perfect time to visit the Hassan II mosque which is incredibly large. The whole trip was pleasant even if long and we were very satisfied.i

It was a great tour. The weather made it even better bc of having the opportunity to walk around each area, relax while enjoying tea and deserts, the best part was having the opportunity to visit the outdoor market for an hour before returning back to Casablanca. Thank you gentlemen for making this tour rememberable. I can only recommend.

Brilliant! Especially Chefchaouen. Said, our Tour Guide extraordinaire, ensured that six total strangers of different nationalities quickly became a harmonious group. We saw an enormous amount in a short time and have returned home hugely enriched by our experience. Thanks also to our driver, Saif.

Super recommended excursion, beautiful places and I thank the guide Said and the driver Saif for the impeccable service😉

Excellent, great seriousness and professionalism on the part of Adil, always kind and courteous
