Amazing 5 Days Tour in Morocco from Tangier Itinerary

Our driver Hassan helped us between places and throughout the country on a 5 Days tour in Morocco itinerary from Tangier to Marrakech, and Fez, Merzouga. Hassan’s team offered a premium desert experience with camels and spent the night on the pitch under the stars. The stops along the road were well planned and in interesting places, with the possibility to buy souvenirs, but without pressure to do so. Many stops for good photographic occasions too. Hassan was also a very safe driver as well as making stops in pharmacies or banks if necessary. We will definitely come back with this group if we need help to move through Morocco and get out into the desert in the future. Thanks for a wonderful holiday trip! We recommend this company to our friends.

Awesome 5 Days Itinerary in Morocco tour from Tangier

before I started to book the 5 Days in Morocco tour from Tangier, I contacted a few travel companies to see what they had in mind. Said was quick, thorough, informative, and responsive. He had the idea of riads, as I asked him, and sometimes I changed them. For one of them, I would have liked to have followed his advice! You know all the places to stay and all the things to make the most of your trip. He organized a night for us in Fez (DON’T MISS FES, IT’S WONDERFUL) and Marrakech, and both were perfect. We learned a lot from them. Our driver, Said, was fantastic. He drove very carefully through the chaos that is traffic in Moroccan cities and has always taken care of us. He came to every hotel to make sure everything was organized. He also told a hotel that they had to escort us to the restaurant that Said had chosen. Said speaks Berber, of course, English, Spanish and French. He was not only a driver, he also gave me conversation classes in Spanish. I can’t blame the company. Highly recommended.
