Thanks / Compliments

I would like to thank Mr. Hassan from Sahara Morocco Tours, who organized our trip. I would like to say a special thank you to our guide Hassou, who on our 5-day trip, we covered more than 1,300 km, driving a comfortable 4x4 vehicle, always being kind, attentive, helpful, careful, fun and punctual, having knowledge of all the places we passed through, sparing no effort to provide us with comfort and safety, he was a 10. We left Zagora and passed through Tdra gorges, Ouarzazate, Dades, Nkob Valley, Erfroud, Merzouga Dunes... All the way to Marrakech. A wonderful journey with breathtaking scenery. We felt safe throughout the trip. Friendly and welcoming people. I recommend it to everyone. Don't miss the modern part of the city, with its many beautiful gardens. Everything was great!

Hassan Great guide

I would like to thank our agency Sahara Morocco Tours, especially our guide Hassan, who was always very kind, careful, humorous, punctual and made every effort to make our trip wonderful. We really enjoyed Morocco, its people, culture, natural beauty, traditional mint tea, hospitality and welcoming people. Incredible walks, especially in the desert. Very happy moments. It was a magical trip, we felt very safe, we walked around peacefully. Riads, fantastic experience! Excellent value for money!

Totally recommend it!

From April 5 to 13, my parents and I were in the company of Hassan as our guide/driver... we passed through Agadir, Marrakech, Dades, Todra, Ourzazate, Merzouga.. We slept in a perfect camp in the Sahara Desert, complete with sandstorm!!! Mila speaks English very well. Always punctual, cordial and with a huge compassion for the less privileged. Mila helped me buy a SIM card for my cell phone, as well as train tickets from Tangier to Rabat. Mila kindly complied with my father's request and ended up taking us out for barbecued meat! Also, when we arrived in Mila, we were assisted by Mila from a distance, and everything went well (we were welcomed by Ahmed - on April 17 and 18) Thank you Mila!!!

Incredible experience

Getting to know Morocco was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. We were four women and the fact that you had someone you could trust by your side when you arrived in a country with a culture and customs totally different from ours was fundamental. A big thumbs up to our driver Hamid. Very discreet, polite and extremely compassionate when dealing with people during the trip. He made us feel at first hand what life in the desert is really like, and we gradually came to understand that reality which is so distant from ours but so present in many places around the world. What's more, the car was great, the hotels beautiful and very tasteful. I highly recommend it.

Wonderful trip

We were in Morocco for 5 days. Me, my daughter and my granddaughter. We were a little worried about our safety in the country because we were three women. It was an unnecessary worry, partly because the country is not dangerous and partly because of the efficiency, warmth and safety of our guide Hassou. He was there every step of the way, whether it was pleasant or necessary. As far as the country is concerned, don't miss the city of Ouarzazate and the stay in the desert. The success of an excursion depends mainly on the organization of the itinerary, the hotels and the relationship with the guide. On a 5-day tour, there are always unforeseen circumstances, which Hassou solved promptly and with the utmost care and efficiency. Everything went very smoothly and the tour was a success. We highly recommend Hassou as a guide.


We got in touch with Hassan through a recommendation from friends in Australia. We spent a whole month exchanging emails and organizing our itinerary, and it was simply amazing! Friendly guides who spoke English and Portuguese, who knew the history of the place and, best of all, who were happy to explain everything to us! We spent 5 days between the desert and Agadir, with wonderful hotels and stunning scenery! I highly recommend a guide in Morocco!
