We saw the offer and jumped at the chance to explore Morocco as much as possible on our holiday. Our expectation was a lot of driving and it was, but with a good combination of sightseeing. The trip was beyond expectations. Everything was well organized and structured. Our group consisted of a lot from different nationalities and we have made a lot of great friends. Our guides MoHa and Khalid were the best team. Humorous, fresh, and they made sure we felt comfortable all the time and we had a lot of deep conversations. We all became a family that looked after each other. We got to see a part of Morocco on the trip up north - we got the authentic Morocco. Fez and Chefchaouen were the highlights - they were amazing.

Our tour guide was amazing! He spoke perfectly English and adapted the tour to any of our needs and curiosities. Furthermore, the tour offers you the chance to see two city in a day, with transportation in a cozy nice car included so I definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to come visit Casablanca and Rabat and has not enough time to dedicate one full day per each city😃✨

Mohammed is fantastic. We were lucky with our guide who always helped us with everything. A little ambitious trip, with many cities in a short time. Group of fantastic people of various nationalities where I made many friends and future trips. Fantastic.

The tour was well planned and tour guide mourad was amazing, I brought my aunt who is 69yrs old and mourad was very kind and considerate of her, I really appreciate all the knowledge the guide has and he was very pleasant to be around.

Everything was amazing. Thank You Khalid for the hospitality and the experience of the Moroccan culture and food. I will 100 recommend this tour.
