Finding a local to guide us around was very helpful and made it easy to see the country. The guide showed us the best places and all the most incredible places. From our depart in Marrakech all the way to the Sahara desert and finally to Fes. He had a great attitude and was very patient to stop to take thousands of pictures. The car was very nice and comfortable. I would recommend anyone to do the same tour! The camel ride was the best part.
