Morocco 8 day itinerary
We took a trip to Morocco last February and did a private tour with Marrakech Tour Company for 8 days in Morocco. Hassan was our driver/guide. He loved us and the tour. We found the experience exciting and educational. Hassan answered over a million of our questions and took us to great places to visit, eat and shop. All this at a very reasonable price. We were very happy and will be in contact with the Marrakech Tour Company the next time we visit Morocco (which will hopefully be soon). I highly recommend them.

Best 8 days in Morocco with Marrakech Tour Company
The 8 Days from Marrakech to Casablanca Desert tours have practically the same Morocco itinerary. What sets different tour operators apart are their tour guides, accommodation options, vehicles, and communication. Our guide said it was awesome, we loved every place we spent the night, the vehicle was clean and comfortable and the owner was always quick to respond to us via Whatsapp while we were planning the trip and brought many changes.
I really can’t say enough about Said who made our trip amazing !! I legitimately feel like we ended the tour with a new friend. I know we paid him for it, but I never felt like that was what he was doing it for. There are people who belong to the tourism industry and he is part of it. He may or may not attend his wedding someday … The tour was about us and he went out of his way to give us exactly what we wanted. Anyone who asks me for advice on visiting Morocco the first thing I will say is to use Marrakech Tour Company and be sure to ask for Said.

Best Marrakech Tour Company
We have just returned from 8 Days in Morocco with Marrakech Tour Company and cannot recommend them more highly.
We requested an ambitious program from Marrakech, and spent nights in Dades Valley, Merzouga, Fes, Chefchaouen… (including an unforgettable night in a camp after riding a camel), Ouarzazate, Marrakech, then back to Casablanca.
Our guide Hassan and our driver Said were absolutely wonderful. Their intimate knowledge of lesser-known sites and areas that only locals visit made our trip even more special. It was wonderful to see Morocco through their eyes, and we made so many lifelong memories.
We could never have planned such a long trip on our own, the riads and the different places we stayed in were all beautiful and full of Moroccan character.
Can’t wait to come back and will be using Marrakech Tour Company again for my next visit.
