I’m fascinated with the this super tour, excellent attention, excellent service, everyone is very friendly, without a doubt one of the best trips I’ve ever done. One of the best experiences of my life, they were always aware of everything we needed. The landscape where the camp is located is spectacular. The tents are perfectly equipped (blankets to avoid cold, light, plugs, bathrooms with hot water, wifi …). The dinner and breakfast we had there was the best of the whole trip through Morocco.
The transport was excellent too. The driver was punctual, very good, helpful and friendly. We felt very comfortable and always attended to our needs, in a short time we had a great experience with this agency. We recommend it 100% for trips of friends or families. Great staff.
