I went with 4 friends on a 6-day trip from Casablanca to Marrakech. So we had contacted the tour company, Mohammed was super welcoming and flexible. It was really easy to chop and change numbers – we could add / subtract people as plans changed, and he was able to accommodate any itinerary changes.
As for the tour itself, it was very well-organized, picking us up from the airport, then dropping us off where we asked in Marrakech.
There were many highlights in the trip – one of which was staying in the desert for 1 night and camel riding, which was included as part of the tour. Our driver/guide for the 6 day, Bihim, was knowledgeable and great fun! He was even nice enough to show us his family house where his mum made us tea and snacks – definitely the most memorable part of the trip.
I highly recommend this tour company to all!
