Best One week tour itinerary around Morocco

Group Traveller

We spent a memorable and fun 1 week in Morocco with MTE. The tour itinerary was intricately planned by the company, taking us from Tangier to Chefchaouen to Fes to the magnificent sand dunes of the Sahara. Despite the multiple destinations we visited, the transfers, hotel arrangements and city tour with local guides were mostly smooth. Also, our driver Ibrahim is really knowledgeable and fluent in English. His interesting anecdotes gave us many insights about Moroccan culture and his humour made the long rides from one city to another fun. Most importantly, he is kind and really took good care of us. With him turning the itinerary into reality by chaperoning us around, Morocco becomes less foreign and more accessible! For sure the next time I plan to make a Morocco trip I will book it with this company.
