    We took a 3 day 2 night tour to the Sahara desert from Marrakesh. We had a fabulous time. We saw amazing sights with our guide Hicham, who had great English, very knowledgeable, and great music taste! Camping in the desert was a fantastic experience. Would highly recommend!

    The whole experience for 3 days is overwhelming. Our driver Said was fantastic and went way beyond all expectations to show us everything they possibly could.
    I would certainly use Tour by Mytravel Morocco again. We do not have even one complaint.

    Issam was amazing and the experience was great. He was very helpful with everything and we felt really cared for. It was an amazing experience. It helps when the guide is local and knows all the history and cultural details.
