5 days tour from Tangier to Marrakech and desert

We contract with Hassan the transport from Tangier to Marrakech through the main cities of Morocco. We wanted to travel on our own, we were two adults and a 3 year old child. The experience was unbeatable, in the end, Hassan was our guide and our travel companion in an unforgettable experience. Hassan not only took us from one city to another as we had agreed, but he also brought us closer to the tourist spots when the distance was too great or whenever we asked him to. He easily added a couple of visits that we suggested to him on the fly. He gave us the best advice in each city and it was his job to call each Riyadh to come and get us. I would also like to say that our guide was very charming with our son and made us feel very comfortable and at ease. The guides that I look for for Fez and Marrakech, also they were very big professionals. I can't say anything about our trip with Hassan. Don't think about it if you want to visit Morocco.



Highly recommended

Hassan accompanied us on our trip as a guide. A charming guy who wanted us to be comfortable at all times and the driver (sorry but I don't remember his name) also made sure we had a good time even though he didn't speak Spanish. The route is a marvel, very recommendable to know a little more of the country. As it is a private tour, the price increases a bit, but it is preferable since the roads to get to the desert I would not take a bus. This way it gives more security. The only thing we missed was a little more explanation, but in generating a whole experience. Highly recommended this 5 days tour from Tangier to Marrakech.



Morocco in 5 days from Tangier

We were three friends and we did a 5-day itinerary through various areas of Morocco. Instead, we contracted with "Morocco Sahara trips" a three-day excursion to the desert and it was definitely the best thing we did!
The rest of the time we didn't have very good experiences and Youness, our guide, and conduit made sure we got a very nice image of Morocco.
Both Hassan and his brother Moha are very charming, very nice and funny and speak Spanish perfectly!
All the places Youness took us to were very authentic and the people were very friendly. The experience at the desert camp was awesome and all the workers were super nice to us.
The truth is, I don't have any bad comments to make on the three days we spent with Youness and I recommend him without a doubt to everyone.
We will certainly go back to Morocco but with Youness, since we didn't have a good time on our own...
Thank you Youness for giving us this experience and for giving us so many fun moments! We'll see each other again for sure!
Belen, Carmen, and Iris.

The best services

Our excellently organized, fulfilling everything contracted. We were picked up at the airport and then Hassan took us on a private tour for the three people we hired for the trip, to Marrakech, Merzouga, Fez, Meknes, Chefchaouen, and other places. We went to the desert and spent a night in a haima. Everything was incredible. Very interesting to know the culture of that country and its people. Hassan is a very good driver, very organized, polite, and respectful. It was very nice to meet his family, his mother prepared a delicious couscous for us. The accommodations were very good as well as the guides who were waiting for us in the different cities to explain everything.
I highly recommend this company.
