    This was a last minute trip for myself and a friend. We were in Spain and decided we wanted to experience something a bit more “exotic”. Morocco did not disappoint!!! Moha was an absolute gem : ) From the moment he picked us up at the ferry dock in Tangier I knew we were in good hands. This trip is the PERFECT amount of arranged activities and free time to explore on your own. Do yourself a favor and book this tour for the trip of a lifetime!

    It has been an amazing experience. The six day tour I selected includes many visits to impressive sites. Our guide Moha at all times resolved our doubts, explained to us in detail about the places and about the culture. It has been a very pleasant experience, not only because of the wonderful environment, but also because of the agency and our guide who made the experience unique and unforgettable ☺️. Definitely highly recommended

    This review is long overdue but absolutely necessary as I want to express how incredible this journey was!!! The person we worked with to plan the trip was extremely professional and communicative not only before but during to trip. Our tour guide and driver were punctual, friendly and full of information. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone looking for a great overview of Morocco!! We made the most out of our time by having tour guides that knew exactly where to go and what we should see, while also giving us plenty of free time to explore. I am typically a traveler that likes to go on my own without an organized tour, but I am SO glad that I chose not to do that for this trip. It definitely wouldn’t have been the same! Our guides also provided us with some great local experiences, introduced us to friends and even had a surprise the night in the desert for my brother on his birthday. This was a truly special family trip and this tour made it great!!!
