4 days Sahara desert from Ouarzazate to Zagora
My family and I spent two weeks in December / January 2019/20 traveling with Hassan. He was an amazing driver and guide and really went above and beyond what was required. He made sure all of our needs were met and were comfortable throughout the trip.
He had a vast knowledge of so many different cities and buildings, and it was very nice to see someone being proud of their country. Their recommendations were always amazing and we never felt pressured to do anything we didn’t want to do. As this was my first time in Morocco I can honestly say this trip exceeded all expectations and could not give it a high enough rating.
We spent an unforgettable 4 days from Ouarzazate to Merzouga and Zagora.

Marrakech Tour Company
My wife and I decided to go in 4 Days Merzouga Desert From Ouarzazate through the desert villages with Marrakech Tour Company. Our driver was Hassan. After researching a half dozen other companies we decided to go with them as they offered a reasonable price and we are quick and professional in their response. For example, they sent me a Word document of our proposed itinerary instead of just sending it in writing in an email like other companies. Also, note that Marrakech Tour Company also seems to have another name, I think the original Morocco tours, but there is nothing to worry about. It is the same company. The company was flexible with our request: that we booked all the accommodations and only needed a driver and a car to take us. We finally realized that this option is a bit more expensive than following a route prepared by the company (since we have stayed in Riads without working with the company) but it did not bother us to be able to control our accommodation. Hassan, our driver, was a fantastic guide. I highly recommend it if you can. He was very professional the entire time and he was very respectful of times when we wanted some peace and quiet. He drove safely and stopped whenever we wanted to take a break or take a photo. Hassan also gave us some helpful tips when shopping for local souvenirs, especially if the goods were known to be poor quality or fake. He did not pressure us to stop at certain times to buy gifts, unlike other companies that were highly appreciated. He only stopped if we wanted to. The car they were using was very good too – we were assigned a brand new Ford pickup that was super roomy and comfortable. Finished, an unbeatable and highly recommended company.
General Comments on Morocco for First Time Travelers: Perhaps one thing to consider, which is in no way business-related, is the food situation. Then I realized within a few days that all the restaurants that cater to foreigners outside the big cities (all tour guides take tourists there for various reasons) have a fixed price between 90 or 100 dirhams / 9 or 10 euros. So be sure to budget for this as we figured we didn’t need such a high budget for food. As a first-time traveler to Morocco, it was interesting to see that the total cost of the trip to Morocco is higher than most of Europe. Much of it is structural and is nothing tourists can’t do, but something first-time travelers should be aware of.

Hassan was the main guide and the main driver for a tour where I was. He was extremely professional, friendly, well organized, and helpful! He worked with our guide to create a fascinating geological itinerary in southern Morocco, and during the 4 Days Desert Tour From Ouarzazate To Merzouga and Zagora, he kept us on time, well-fed, and well housed. He always took into account our needs and his organizational skills allowed us to be fully involved in the geological and cultural wonders that we were experiencing. I would gladly travel with Hassan again. An expert in your field!
