13 Days desert tours from Tangier
This trip was truly the most beautiful tour I have ever been on. First of all, our guide Hassan was the best guide you could ask for. He brought us very close and personally to the locals and was able to offer us a truly authentic experience in their culture. I was able to see some of the most beautiful places I have seen on this 13-day best of Morocco tour. I highly recommend this tour to see all the greatness that Morocco has to offer. My favorite places were the Sahara desert and the Atlas Mountains, absolutely breathtaking! Also meet nomads and amazing dinner at the local family home, best food of the trip … with camel burger 🙂
Now I have to let you know that we started this tour on March 2 and at that time COVID 19 was not a real problem, we had NO idea what was going on at home and when the speed increased. We finished our tour, with the last 2 days in Marrakech, where things came true! We had to quickly find new flights to get back home to Toronto as our original flights were canceled. It was not an easy task and it took us 4 days to find new flights that would not continue to be canceled. My deepest thanks to our tour guide Hassan for staying with us and making sure we were all okay and safe to go home, to the point that he made sure we were home safe and sound. He did NOT have to do this, as he did his job a few days ago, but he stayed by our side and did everything in his power to ensure our safety, our well-being, according to us, making sure we get home! If it weren’t for him, I don’t know what we would have done.
Overall this tour is a must-see, Enjoy and stay safe! Peace, love, and light!

Amazing private 13 Days 12 nights trip from Tangier to Marrakech
I recently went on a 13-day cross-country expedition with Marrakech Tour Company on a tour titled “A Morocco Without Sailing”.
Overall, it was a positive and enriching experience.
If you are looking for a professionally animated circuit covering a very large area (around 2000 km), this is the circuit.
The leader of the group was extremely happy: knowledgeable and eager to show foreigners his country and the joy of traveling with him for 13 days.
Just like the good driver, who efficiently took us from point to point.
Accommodation is quite varied, from 3-star hotels to desert tents. Very interesting differences.
The speed was a bit frantic, so be prepared to be quick at all times.
The few hikes we did were pretty tough so he should be in great shape.
Stops at local merchants and craft shops were a bit boring and misleading. They are not designed to educate you, but to sell you.
Finally, I cannot stress enough the importance of group dynamics. I couldn’t get along with more than half of the group because they were so young and immature and nervous. Be prepared to be accepted or rejected by the majority of the group. It’s a little difficult to function as a black sheep.
I have traveled alone, but most people have traveled as a couple or with friends.
