A great experience

We went to Morocco in March 2019, I had previously contacted Sahara Morocco Tours to prepare as best as possible our trip, it was thanks to the very good reviews on TripAdvisor that I contacted them by email. We exchanged emails with Mohamed to organize everything before our arrival in Morocco. 4 adults and 1 child of 10 years old. We visited Marrakech, spent a day in Essaouira, a day in Imlil in the High Atlas and 2 days in Ouarzazate. It was simply perfect, our guide Hakim showed us magnificent places with lots of fun activities for young and old (camel, quad, mule...). Hakim taught us a lot about his country, which he knows inside out. A great experience, and a great team that allowed us to make the most of our trip. You can trust them with your eyes closed, you won't be disappointed. great value for money! Thanks again.

Magnificent personalized trip

The agency responded perfectly to our request by customizing our day exactly as we asked; sightseeing, camels, waterfalls, mule rides, dinner with local people, quad biking, etc. They even found some very nice French-speaking guides. Very well organized, beautiful places, flexibility... a serious organization to recommend.

5 stars

Initially, the trip was to know the four imperial cities of Morocco, but with the conversations held with MIla / Sahara Morocco Tours, Madrid we ended up expanding our visit to other cities / towns of interest, such as Chefchaouen, Volubilis, Azrou, Ifran , Erfroud, Rissani, Merzouga Desert, Quarzazate, among others. In all the activities we were accompanied without interruption by the experienced guide Hamid who, without sparing any effort, drove our group of 4 people (all with an average age of 69 years) through the most interesting places of our itinerary, in an exclusive car. What impressed us most was how the Berber people (over 9,000 years old), the Arabs and the Jews, among others, managed to live in this wonderful country and to build and preserve such an extraordinary architectural and cultural ensemble. During our trip, we used cameras and i-phone cameras, recording the main moments and highlights. Undoubtedly, it was a trip of extreme learning and of great cultural value for the whole group.

16 days in Morocco

I organized a private trip to Morocco for 5 women. Mila's responsiveness from the first contact was superb. Our driver/guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The riads we stayed in were all excellent, with friendly staff and within walking distance of all the places we wanted to visit. The highlight for many of us was the Sahara House in the Ziz Valley. The family running the riad could not have been more helpful. The private guides to the medinas were very informative and helpful. Our visit was packed with activities and I would have liked more time in various places to participate in more activities. I honestly don't know how Sahara Morocco Tours is able to offer such a high quality private tour for the money we paid. My only caveat is that you should be aware that your driver/guide is not allowed (by Moroccan law) to enter historical sites and medinas with you. Sahara Morocco Tours arranges local guides for various sites, but you will be on your own at some of the sites you visit along the way.

Excellent services

My wife and I just took a 16 day private tour of the wonders of Morocco. We are normally do-it-yourselfers, but this time we decided to try a tour. We are so glad we made this decision and chose Sahara Morocco Tours. Mila made the process easy for us despite the tragic earthquake that struck 4 days after we booked. Our guide, Hamid, was knowledgeable, attentive and fun. Our driver Moha kept us safe, was always in a good mood and taught us African music. The four of us made friends from the first day. By the second day, we had Berber nicknames and they had Western nicknames. The highlight of the trip was the Sahara desert, but all the cities we visited were pleasant. We covered a lot of miles in 16 days, and Hamid and Moha made sure we had fun. We joked, sang, danced and shared personal stories and wisdom. Thank you Hamid and Moha for making our Moroccan adventure so memorable - we highly recommend the Sahara Morocco Tours team!

A wonderful experience

What a great time my 5 friends and I had in Morocco in September. I was in May 2022 with Sahara Morocco Tours and both trips were beyond wonderful. This year our guide Said and driver Issa exceeded all expectations to make our trip so memorable. By the end of our almost three week trip, they had become like family to us. We stayed in beautiful riads, learned many new things about Morocco and the Berber culture, tasted delicious food, and most of all, sang, laughed and listened to Moroccan music as we drove the roads of Morocco in awe of the incredible scenery. The 3 days in the desert were amazing staying at the Desert Village, eating delicious food, camping, listening to amazing music and riding camels. Our wonderful guide and driver made our trip so wonderful taking such good care of us. They were brilliant.
