10 days Tour Morocco
This tour exceeded our highest expectations. We booked a shared student excursion but we had a private driver “Hassan”, with a very comfortable Toyota 4×4. Hassan was fantastic, he told us all about the environment, the peoples, the traditions, and he was able to answer all of our questions. We feel really comfortable and safe with Hassan, showing us around and always honest. The desert was beautiful and we had plenty of time to take photos, hike to the best spots, ride a camel, and watch the sunset. It was the best day of my life with friends. We will never forget it!! The stays, the food, the people, and the itinerary were incredible. We recommend this tour to everyone!

Amazing 10 days Itinerary in Morocco
Our family had a great time with our MTC hosts. Hassan (our driver) and Said (our guide) were exceptional, making us feel relaxed and at peace as we ventured into the desert from Fez to Marrakech, admiring the landscapes and cultural sites as we went. They catered for our family’s needs and provided us with a great environment including fantastic music while we were traveling. Thank you very much from the Cloward / Sax family, Brian, Jenny, Lauren, and Rachel.

Morocco in 10 day Tour
I don’t think you can see the North African country Morocco without taking the time to see the Sahara desert and the sunset from the sand dunes of Merzouga, Erg Chebbi, it is a dream come true.
Our experience is truly a night to remember. Shadows cast by the sun, camels walking statues through the dunes. It is truly amazing and inspiring.
The views were great and the sunset in the desert is one of the best I have ever seen, bringing the camels to their knees and the perfect sunset spots. I hope I can return to this place.
The experience is highly recommended.
Don’t hesitate to book a tour with Hassan!
