It has been a journey that has certainly exceeded all of our expectations. Guided by Hassan, with his fun conversations, he discovered a magical Morocco, from Marrakech to Ouarzazate and Ait ben Haddou Kasbah, and passing through the Atlas mountains, we have been learning a little more about its culture, religion, customs, …
Between crazy and funny anecdotes lived together with Hassan, we have lived 2 unforgettable days.
Without a doubt, we will repeat to discover new corners and take our little ones to the great desert adventure so that they can make sandboards with us and that Hassan explains to them at night that so magical sky that can only be seen between the dunes.
Hassan !! Now you can prepare to put up with our 5 children.

It was like a story. We went to Morocco to rest from the pressures of the city. We went without knowing what to do, to adventure. Upon arriving in Marrakech, we informed ourselves that we can visit it. We met Hassan the guide from there, he helped us a lot, showing places that you wouldn’t normally think of. One of our excursions was to the Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou and Ouarzazate, it was magical to see how the culture and traditions of that places, we were spent a great night in the hotel Of Ouarzazate, we discovered the beautiful oasis of Fint, We loved it.
