For anyone coming to Morocco and wanting to book a tour. I recommend it to visit the cities described here!!! We are very satisfied with the tour itself especially the guide Younes who knew a lot and the driver Moncef who could guide us well in the atlas mountains with his driving skills, what a nice duo with whom you could laugh and they took us to the best and right places. The booking agency easy tranfers I am a little less satisfied with. We had arranged everything through the app get your guide and they wanted extra information to see that we came from Europe. We ourselves are Moroccan and found this very strange. All in all they apologized and upgraded our hotel to a four star. The guide and driver were on time and very relaxed.

This trip was excellent, I would 10/10 recommend. It’s a great way to explore Morocco within a limited time. Our driver, Soukayna was excellent. She made us extremely comfortable, was able to anticipate all our needs before we even vocalised them and made our long rides from city to city enjoyable. The accommodations (riads) we stayed at were beautiful and a great change from our hotel in Marrakech. All the tour guides were very friendly and knowledgeable. We especially enjoyed our tour in Fez led by Khlafa who was beyond excellent and welcoming. It was a perfect trip.

Adil was too kind. The guides in each city are simply amazing. The cooperatives that took us were wonderful and the restaurants had delicious food. Adil is too kind. It is a tour that is 100% worth it

Mr AbdulFatah is knowledgeable, mr Saeed Chauffeur kind and helpful, was a satisfactory tour Thanks for everything

Great time spent with Adil, very attentive and very patient and cool!
