We recently completed the 5-day tour from Marrakech to Fes, and it exceeded all expectations. Our Rachid was knowledgeable and passionate about Moroccan history and culture. Each day brought new adventures, from exploring the ancient Kasbahs to riding camels in the Sahara. The accommodations were comfortable, and the local cuisine was a delightful surprise. Highly recommended!

The diversity of landscapes on our 5 days tour from Marrakech to Fes is truly breathtaking. From the bustling markets of Marrakech to the serene beauty of the Atlas Mountains, every moment was a photo opportunity. The highlight, of course, was spending a night in a desert camp under the stars. Thanks Moroccan Travel and Ali for all what they did to make our journey safe and well-informed throughout. Highly recommman Moroccan Tavel
