Morocco itinerary 4 days from Fes to Marrakech

We went with friends with the organization Morocco Sahara Trips, we loved our stay. Everything was super well organized, the activities, visits, transportation, and accommodation were all very good too. Also, we loved this trip thanks to our guide Watik who took us from Marrakech to the desert and back. Hassan was very pleasant, with him the trips went faster, especially because he showed us a lot of things on the roads. He is very interesting, nice, funny and a very good listener, always ready to help when needed.
We will all keep a great memory of this trip, I recommend this organization and I hope that you will be lucky to have Watik as a guide too!

Amazing experience with Morocco Sahara Trips

Beautiful trip to the desert. We made our way to the camp of Morocco Sahara Trips on a camel. In that place, we spent the night. After dinner, they offered a moment of music and dance. In the morning we saw the sunrise among the dunes. An unforgettable experience. Everything was excellent, everything they offered when we booked the trip was fulfilled to perfection. We were very happy with the attention we received!

My experience confirms all the good things that I had read, From the moment that Ismail picked us up, during the whole excursion he transmitted a feeling of security, for his good driving, and of professionalism for his courtesy, adaptation to satisfy the requests that we suggested and organization. that made it a more than pleasant, charming trip.
