    I absolutely loved it! Amazing fluent English speaking guide. We learned a lot, he took some amazing videos and photos of us! Safe driving, lots of patience and very informative! I would definitely recommend you take this excursion with this driver/tour guide because you will get an awesome tour plus more! I am bringing the kids back with hopes they can experience the tour with the exact same tour guide Abdul!

    We had such a great time!! There were breathtaking views and the driver, Abdul, was outstanding! He was totally willing to make stops, cater the day to us, and take pictures. Highly recommend this tour if you don't mind being in a car for 10+ hours on bumpy roads in one day.

    The trip was lovely and our driver and guide very accommodating to stop for photos all along the way. However, the information the guide provided was very basic and repeated. At Ait Benhaddou, he didn't give much context or history even when asked. He was very friendly and helpful. He even arranged for us to go on the roof of one of the older buildings. I would have appreciated a quick stop as we left at the overlook, but I didn't realize what it was until we passed it to ask for it. The lunch was good, but the view was not overlooking Ait Benhaddou as described. The van was comfortable.
