    This tour was the highlight of our trip in Morocco. Everything was so well organized and Driss was very fast responding to my questions. We originally wanted to do a group tour but they were booked. Now we are SO glad we did a private tour. Moha & Hicham were our drivers and they were both amazing! These guys go above an beyond to make sure your experience is everything you hoped for. The guys at the camp were also great. Muhammad made our camel ride so memorable and took the most amazing pictures for us. I seriously can’t say enough good things about this tour! Thank you all for a great trip in Morocco!

    We did a 5 days tour from Marrakesh to many beautiful places, some of those being Atlas Mountains, Ouarzazate, Todra Gorges, Merzouga Desert, Aït-Ben-Haddou, Ouzoud waterfalls and many many more. We also rode camels, did sand board, rode quads and many other activities. We even had tea with the nomads in their home!!!
    The hotels and the tents were very nice and clean.
    Someone who made our trip even better was our driver Moha, very friendly and kind. Not only our driver but also our guide and photographer!!!
    I really recommend this tour company. 5 stars.

    We had a wonderful experience with our 7 day private tour of Morocco with Mytravel Morocco . Our driver and guide Hicham was very knowledgeable, spoke good English and was very professional and helpful. The car was very comfortable as well. We had a tight schedule to manage over 7 days and the planning of the entire trip was spot-on. We really had no unpleasant experience to speak of!

    our guide Hicham, was 10 out of 10. He drove us to the sahara from Casa Blanca, I always felt safe and his driving skills are very good. He also knows the dunes very well, he took us to visit a nomad family which was one of a kind experience. After we drove atvs with a guides he recommended that we’re also great . We ended our day with a camel ride to a dune to look at the sunset. The day he planned for us was incredible and flawless .
    I highly recommend Mytravel Morocco. It was the best trip of my life and one of a kind experience. They would make you feel at home and very safe .

    We really enjoyed our Mytravel Morocco experience from start to finish. We signed up for the private tour that started from Marrakesh and ended in Fes. Our driver Moha was great! He was on time to pick us up and was really informative about the area. By the end of the trip we felt he was part of our group. the camp was beautiful and the food delicious. The staff were the best part, we really enjoyed our time hanging out with them listening to music after dinner. In the morning we opted to do the sunrise camel ride and we were glad we did as the light cast on the sand dunes were spectacular. Overall we were really happy with everything and would highly recommend Mytravel Morocco.
