Did a seven-day tour was personalized. Khalil, the organizer, was prompt with replies and was available readily via email before and during the trip, and Youseff, the driver, was very accomodating and made us feel very safe throughout the trip. Both know Morocco very well and will be able to tailor to personal preferences.
Particular highlights include the night glamping at the desert. For a very reasonable price, we stayed at a very resourceful glamping ground. We arrived in the edge of the desert via car, and rode camels to the ground, and left via 4-by-4. Both were very exciting experiences and would recommend anyone going to Morocco to spend at least a night in the desert, if not more.
In terms of our schedule, much time was spent driving, but there was sufficient time to visit each spot in reasonable detail—seven days as an absolute minimum for Morocco to explore a substantial part of the country. The scenery is amazing en route, and the car stopped in many scenic spots for photography lovers.
Price is very reasonable for accommodation in the form of riads. All riad owners were very helpful and hospitable and were even willing to cut fruit for us at night. Riads are conveniently located within the Medina, which is great as a location but may be slightly hard to find at night when returning after dinner. Nonetheless, we felt relatively safe and were not scammed at any point during the trip. The trip left sufficient free time with a guided tour in the major cities, Marakesh and Fes.
I highly recommend this Company.
