    My wife and two kids went on the 10-day cultural tour (Rabat, Chefchaouen, Essaoiura, Merzouga, Atlas Mountains, Fes, Marrakech, and others).
    Before the trip, Driss as the manager was very accommodating in making adjustments to the itinerary, and finding ways to help fit our budget and preferences.
    Our guide was Hicham, he was very calm, friendly, helpful, informative. After a few days interaction, Hicham felt like a close friend and family member. He was very experienced with driving and his knowledge of the sites and history. He is also thoughtful and ensured we are properly hydrated on hot days. There were a couple nights he worked late to send us to and from dinner. Other nights we either enjoyed dinner in Riad, or walked to nearby restaurants given the long days.. Hicham also took us to his village and welcomed us with tea and snack, we were delighted to meet locals and understand their lifestyle a bit more.
    We had local guides at Fez, Marrakech, and Essaoiura, which are all very good. Our family really enjoyed our local guide, Abdullah, in Essaouira, he shared lots of fun facts about the town and fishing.
    Overall, we had a great and memorable time, and I would surely recommend Hicham as guide and Mytravel Morocco to my friends and family. Their communication was smooth, timely, clear. We got what was promised and exceeded our expectations.

    My husband and I along with another couple had a wonderful experience in Morocco. Driss, the manager of Mytravel Morocco, helped us fine tune the itinerary of the Luxury Class Tour. He provided valuable suggestions and recommendations and was able to accommodate some of our last minute requests that really made our trip unforgettable. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and very helpful. Our driver, with his expert driving skills, navigated us through winding mountain roads and traffic-congested city roads.
    We loved the trip and would definitely request the exceptional service of Mytravel Morocco again. We will, with no reservations, recommend their service to our friends.

    The beauty, majesty, and wonder of Morocco was brought to life by Hicham, our tour guide from Mytravel Morocco for 10 days. Starting in Casablanca, Hicham explained the history and culture of Morocco through Rabat, Fez, Merzouga and the desert, Marrakesh, and Essaouira. It was a wonderful experience that started with Driss who helped us select our tour and continued with Hicham who ensured that our time in Morocco was very memorable. His knowledge of the county’s history, people, food, towns and cities is remarkable. A highlight of our tour was when Hicham invited us into his home to meet his mother, and son and to enjoy a very delicious Berber pizza. Hicham- thank you.
    We highly recommend that you visit Morocco – we fell in love with the country and the warm people and plan to return. And when we do, we will most assuredly, use Mytravel Morocco.

    Driss was very accommodating with me in planning the trip.. I kept going back and forth on what we wanted and he was always very quick to provide me with great options.. once we landed in Marrakech our guides Hicham and Moha were awesome from the moment they picked us up in Marrakech to to moment they dropped us off in Casablanca.. always timely, very friendly and knowledgeable, always going above and beyond to make sure we had the perfect experience traveling around Morocco.. the Van was quite comfortable especially for long days in the car.. each day was broken up in a perfect proportion so we never got tired of Sitting in the car too long or doing too much in one day.. I would hire them again in a heartbeat..

    I had the pleasure of working with Driss with Mytravel Morocco to arrange my elopement and 10 day tour of Morocco. The entire trip, from start to finish, was the absolute best trip I have ever been on, but I do want to mention a few things that really stood out. First was our driver Hicham. From the second we met him, he just went above and beyond anything we could have ever asked for. We just don’t see service like this in the states, so we were blown away by how kind, knowledgeable and accommodating Hicham was. By the time the trip was over, he felt more like a friend than just our driver. It was incredibly hard to say goodbye – and we honestly wished we could take him back with us!
