We always wanted to visit Morocco, we decided to trust in Moroccan Tours and it was the best decision!
You only have to worry about enjoying. The organization is perfect, always attentive to everything. Transfers from the airport and hotels, very well organized tour with native guide who speaks English. The trip to the desert of Merzouga is an incredible experience. Not only because of the landscapes and the places you visit but also because of the treatment and the closeness of all the guides and workers of the camp.
