Recently, my friends and I visited Morocco. We had picked the 3-Day FES Desert Tour for our outdoor trip. It was a wonder experience. The 4WD was so convenient. Both the driver and our guide (Ibrahim) were very accommodating. The guide is so knowledgeable. He was very fluent in English. The accommodation for 3 nights were arranged in very good hotels. The stops for food and breaks were good as well. The experience at Merzouga was the best among all. Thanks to Morocco trip excursions for taking us on a wonderful journey of Morocco.
