An Extraordinary Tour

We spent 16 days enjoying this country with its exuberant landscapes, tasty food, colors and climates that fill the eyes and the soul. I take with me the privilege of having met fantastic people and cultures and I would like to thank the company Sahara Morocco Tours under the coordination of Hassan and our guide Hamid who accompanied us and gave us total support during this incredible trip, which I intend to return to soon to discover new places in this wonderful country.

Tour to the desert

The moments I had with my family are indescribable... We took a 16-day tour to the desert, passing through wonderful landscapes. Hassan was very attentive and kind, and he gave me confidence from the first time I contacted him to book the tour. I made the right choice. The whole team was helpful and caring. Youssef welcomed us to the camp with a magical evening. They even provided a cake. We spent 16 days with our driver Moha, who did more than drive. Moha protected us and looked after my family with great care, dedication and professionalism. He taught us how to make turbans... he touched us many times... I'm leaving Morocco missing a new culture that I've learned to admire.

Dream trip

I highly recommend the tour with Hassan's company. Super reliable! I traveled with two friends and I was worried about 3 women traveling alone, but with the professionals he sent us, always looking after us and always guiding us, everything went very smoothly. The Riads he put us up in were also incredible and our "driver", also called Hassan (Jose), who accompanied us on the tour from Marrakech to Tangier, was amazing. He accompanied us on everything, was very attentive and careful. Hassan didn't accompany us on the trip, but he was worried the whole time, asking if everything was going well. In short, I recommend it and would do it again with the same company.

Exploring Morocco

I recently took a trip to Morocco with my husband and our 2 children. We went to Marrakech but wanted to learn more about this wonderful country. I contacted Hassan by email and WhatsApp, he took care of everything and on the agreed day and time Mustafa was there, guiding us through the trip together with Yassine the driver, always explaining everything. We loved the trip and at the end we all felt like we'd gained two friends. I recommend them 5 stars

Great visit to Morocco

In November 2017, my wife, my daughter (two and a half years old) and I spent ten days in Morocco. As our time was short and the country offers so much to visitors, we hired the services of Hassan's agency - and we didn't regret it. The team that accompanied us, Hassan (the driver) and Mustafa (the guide), were excellent; the hotels were very good (especially the desert camp); and the places were fantastic. Highly recommended!

Said Morocco driver

I spent 16 days in Morocco in November. We were met at the airport (parking lot) by the driver Iddir, who took us to Marrakesh, Azrou, Ifran, Fez, Mekmes, Rabat and Casablanca in a very helpful and efficient way, as he spoke English and had a lot of knowledge of the places he visited. The trip was great, thanks in large part to Iddir who, while transporting us, enhanced the beauty of the country. Thank you Iddir for the days with great memories!!!
