What people are saying about Marrakech-Safi, Morocco

A lovely way to spend New Years Eve! Pick up was easily arranged and on time. Driven safely to the Agafay dessert and then changed to a 4X4 to get to the hill where dinner is set up. There is a bit of waiting and not much communication as to when and what is happening but you don’t mind when you’re sat admiring the sunset in the desert! Lots of live music and a surprise entertainment show at the end which topped off the evening perfectly! The food is delicious and I’m vegan which was easily catered for. They serve the meat and vegetable tagine separately to everyone, the starter is salads and desert is fruit! Lovely evening with warm fires, gorgeous views and tranquility. They give you time options to leave and we were dropped off safely to our pick up point.

beautiful evening of celebration in the desert under the stars with a welcome of rare kindness...and a special mention to Ali, a man full of spirit and joie de vivre with great humility and caustic humour. ..

A great way to get introduced Moroccan food and culture. We did the tour on the first day of our visit.

Well run. Excellent guide and driver. Great combination of tour and free time to explore.
