When you book a tour anywhere it can be hit or miss. Especially when you are two girls travelling alone. But this one was DEFINITELY a HIT. Hachem, our driver was AMAZING. Super knowledgeable about the history and customs and all too happy to share. In multiple languages! He made sure that everything ran smoothly and we felt safe and looked after. We did not need to worry about or think about ANYTHING. He took us to all the best places and advised what to buy and where so that we only got the best things at the best prices. The more we asked, the more we learnt and unravelled stories. The tour itself was incredible. I did not expect the extent of the change in the landscape and the vastness of the space. I won't ruin it for you with too many details. Food and accommodation were fabulous. We were a bit worried about travelling in Ramadan, but this was not an issue at all. The added quad biking was super cool. The strangers who met in the car became a family. And THAT was AMAZING.

Salem was the best guide! We saw so much more of Morocco than we expected to see, thanks to him. The car rides in between Marrakech and Merzouga, Merzouga and Fes are quite long, but the landscape and sites in between are gorgeous which helps make the time pass. The actual desert portion of the trip was INCREDIBLE, a definite must-do if you are coming to Morocco. I only wish we stayed one more day in the desert to offset the time in the car.

Trip at the top!!!! Lovely driver... Change of scenery guaranteed!!!! The evening under the Berber tents was great with all the comforts including toilets and showers inside the tent. The meals were excellent and the hotel in Merzougga splendid. In short, go there with your eyes closed!!!!!!!! Thank you for everything.

The driver was very friendly. Very good driving skills and good french/english/Spanish speaking. Driver arrived on time at our hotel and dropped us off on time. We had 4 hrs to roam through the city. The total driving time was more like 3.5 hrs each way.

During a stopover from Seville to Fez, the guide showed us everything possible and in a very professional way even in a short time. I recommend to everyone
