Jessica "What an amazing adventure! Our guide Abdou was friendly, experienced and knowledgeable making him an absolute pleasure to travel with. I doubt I would have enjoyed Morocco half as much had I traveled it alone. The tour was well structured though I would have loved a few extra days to really delve into some of the areas.

    The trip exceeded my expectations, especially in terms of the unique and beautiful accommodation. My tour guide was great fun and got the whole group involved. He was also very knowledgeable about the locations we visited. Transportation was comfortable and on time. Everything about the trip was brilliant. I would definitely recommend this tour and would travel with the company in the future.

    The camel ride in the Sahara was the most exciting! Expect to have quite a lot of out of pocket cost for food, water and souvenirs as Morocco isn't as cheap as what it appears. I easily spent a $1000aud there and i don't drink either.. There are a lot of wifi during the whole trip and lots of chill time too by the pool!

    So awesome! Casablanca was not that great but all the rest was really cool. The highlights were definitely Fez and the night camping in the Sahara.

    Really excellent trip! First ever tour and couldn't have gone better! 12 of us + our wonderful guide Khaled and we all got along really well and were lucky with excellent weather for all the sites. Transport and everything really ran smoothly, no worries about being a vegan on the tour there was always lots of bread and veggie options. All the hotels were really comfortable and I felt looked after and completely positively satisfied the entire trip. It was really amazing and I would go back to morocco in a heartbeat.

    What an amazing adventure! Our guide Abdou was friendly, experienced and knowledgeable making him an absolute pleasure to travel with. I doubt I would have enjoyed Morocco half as much had I traveled it alone. The tour was well structured though I would have loved a few extra days to really delve into some of the areas. Major highlight was the Sahara experience: riding a camel into the desert, climbing a nearby dune to watch the sunset, enjoying mint tea amongst friends, playing bongos by the campfire and spending the quiet part of the evening chatting and gazing at the stars. Wonderful, memorable and simply magic.
