Thanks to our amazing Tour Guide I had the most fabulous time in Morocco. The guide made us all feel so special and welcome. We were 8 in the group and together with the guide and driver our tourbus was full of enjoyment and curiosity and the guide answered all our questions with a smile. The itinerary is busy and we saw many beautifull sites. A good choice to join this tour.

Wow and wow again!! What an amazing country!! Loved every second of our trip!! Abdellatif Benaissa was our guide and Sulimane Bairha was our driver. We could not ask for a better combination. Abdul’s knowledge and love for his country was evident in his guiding and with a mostly female group (except for Glynn) he had his hands full. Not once did he loose his cool and everything was done with a smile. Abdul and Suliman’s friendliness was infectious and set the tone for the tour and made it an unforgettable experience. Morocco is a beautiful amazing country with surprises and magic around every corner. Chefchaouen and Rabat is a must see and I wish we could’ve spend more days exploring these mystical phenomenal cities. The Riad in Rabat was outstanding and gave us a true experience of being part of Morocco. The people of Morocco are kind hearted and friendly people and we always felt safe and welcome. This was a truly unforgettable experience and I would recommend everyone to experience it at least once.
