11 Days Morocco Tour through imperial cities
I did an 11 Days Morocco Tour through imperial cities with Marrakech Tour Company on January 21st with a group of friends. It was our first time in the country and we fell in love. We saw and experienced so many new things, celebrated New York in the desert, enjoyed camel rides at sunrise, fed monkeys in the snow, negotiated rugs, learned history, and witnessed the know-how. local masters. All these thanks to the impeccable organization of Marrakech Tour Company. They listened carefully to our wishes, were very attentive to our needs, made sure we received the best service, and even managed to do the impossible. The reality was much better than our expectations! I highly recommend going with the Marrakech Tour Company whenever you are planning the trip to this magical land.

11 Days Morocco Desert And Imperial Cities Tour from Marrakech to Casablanca.
This 11 Days Morocco Desert And Imperial Cities Tour from Marrakech to Casablanca. came as a surprise birthday gift, therefore, I did not have a chance to provide input or review the itinerary. Every day was filled with different experiences. Our guide and driver were good company to travel with. Their choice of music while driving helped set the tone while venturing through the different areas. We appreciated their ability to know when it was important to give us private time to experience some sights on our own. Two disappointments were that COVID-19 prevented my family members from joining us in Morocco for my birthday and that I did not get my haircut from a local barber as I traditionally do when abroad. We are still in Morocco due to border closures, so maybe I will have that opportunity before we leave. A custom private tour comes at a higher price, however, it is a quality tour where you are reassured of getting what you pay for. Said and his team went above and beyond to provide that.
