We had the best time on our 8 day tour starting in Tangier via Marrakech and Sahara Desert. Everything was planned and taken care of for us to the extent that we only had to enjoy the experience. Doing a private tour made our experience feel very personalized. We traveled as a group of 4 young females and felt completely safe and beyond welcomed at each accommodation. We had the opportunity to learn about and immerse ourselves in a new culture throughout the tour which we loved (especially in the desert!), got to try countless new foods and tried new activities such as sandboarding. Our guide, Mubarak, was so friendly and made our entire experience in Morocco so much more enjoyable and informative. Our car rides in between destinations were full of interesting conversation and laughter. He even went out of his way to drive our group to the airport days after our tour had ended which was extremely nice of him to do…request Mubarak if you can!

We were a group of 6 traveling from Tangier to Marrakech and back to Tangier for the first time. We didn’t know what to expect but Hassan and Omar (driver & guide) made our trip.
We experienced an adventure of a life time by visiting Fes and riding a camel in the Sahara desert with overnight in Berber tent camp, stars were amazing to see in Sahara.
We learned a lot about the Berber life our favorite parts of the tour were visiting a nomadic Berber family in tent beside the dunes, and camel ride in the desert was so amazing and fun also visiting Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah.
We would like to say thank you Hassan and Omar, we highly recommend this company for a rich and satisfying experience.

Hassan and Youssef made this desert tour from Tangier the best experience ever! They were so not only super friendly, but very helpful and knew answers to any questions. Hassan had such a thrilling energy that was so much fun to be around. Youssef was extremely helpful with all of the local recommendations and activities to do in Morocco. They both made our trip so easy and exciting as well. We came into this desert tour not knowing a single thing about the country or the culture and Hassan and Youssef made us feel so comfortable and allowed our time in Morocco to run so smooth. Lifetime experience!
