    Inrihim had little regard for his guests in Marrakech. He was poorly organized, always was out-of-sinc with the itinerary, and created unnecessary walking with dropping guests far from attractions, obviously not the norm. He walked too fast.

    Dear Warren, Thank you for your tour feedback. I'm sorry to hear that you found the tour guide to be somewhat disorganised whilst on our Morocco Desert Safari tour. While we are happy for the guides to be a little flexible with each day, taking into... Show more

    This was my first ever organized tour and really had no expectations one way or the other. One minor complaint and suggestion, since I signed up late and was a solo traveler I probably paid $250-$350 more than planned or expected. I have just a minor... Show more

    There needs to be an itinerary given for each day. There were so many days and hours or we had no idea what we were doing. The French group English group and the Italian groups all had different schedules and times. This was very frustrating for all of us.
