While not as atmospheric as other Moroccan cities, Casablanca is the best representation of the modern nation. This is where the money is made, where young Moroccans come to seek their fortune, and where businesses and creative industries thrive.
The city’s beautiful Moorish buildings, combining French colonial design and traditional Moroccan style, are best admired in the city center.

Marrakech is the fourth largest city in the Kingdom of Morocco. It is the capital of the central-southwest region of Marrakech-Safi. It is located west of the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. Marrakech is located 580 km (360 miles) southwest of Tangier, 327 km (203 miles) southwest of the Moroccan capital of Rabat, 239 km (149 miles) south of Casablanca, and 246 km (153 miles) ) north-east from Agadir.
The region has been inhabited by Berber farmers since the Neolithic period. The city was founded in 1070 by Emir Abu Bakr bin Omar as the imperial capital of the Almoravid Empire. The city was one of the four imperial cities of Morocco. In the 12th century, the Almoravids built many Koranic schools and mosques in Marrakech with Andalusian influences. The city’s red walls, built by Ali ibn Yusuf in 1122-1123, and the many buildings constructed of red sandstone during this period, gave the city the nickname “Red City” (ocher city). Marrakech grew and quickly established its position as a cultural, religious, and commercial center for the Maghreb and sub-Saharan Africa, and Jamaâ El Fna Square is Africa’s busiest square.

I and my girlfriend went for a two-day trip with Marrakech Tour Company at the end of October. It was the ‘Four Majestic Kasbahs and Two Oases’ tour. Our driver was Hassan, who immediately turned out to be a great guide. Friendly, talkative about the region -and- caring about our wellbeing. From the first until the last moment, we felt safe and taken care of with him. The car, a Toyota Hilux 4×4, was incredibly comfortable and clean.
Our tour went from ait Benhaddou and Telouet day trip from Marrakech, up to a lodge in Skoura on the first day. The next day, we visited the Skoura oasis, Ouarzazate, and the Atlas Movies Studio. On a personal note: I am a movie fan, but wouldn’t recommend visiting the studios as they were a bit disappointing. In general, the tour was a very quick and well-planned visit to the biggest highlights of the region, although Dessert Majesty went beyond the “tourist basics” by visiting slightly lesser-known places such as the Kasbah Amridil and. Ali also made sure to break up long drives by letting us walk a short distance and thus stretch our legs every now and then, picking us up with the car further on.
I should add that the first day of the tour was also my birthday. Even though Hassan only learned about it that morning, he secretly arranged a birthday cake and a band of musicians for a small party at the lodge that night. It was a great birthday!
The only downside I would want to mention is that some of the restaurants we visited weren’t great. Specifically, the first on our way into the mountains and the last on our way back to Marrakech. But it was only a minor detail that doesn’t weigh up to all the other great aspects. Hence our full five-star review – when we visit Morocco again, we’ll definitely plan a new tour with Marrakech Tour Company

A perfect experience from start to finish. We made the desert of Merzouga; The trip is 3 days and 2 nights by 4×4 car to get there, but thanks to Hassan (our guide) the trip was more enjoyable, he was attentive to all our requests and even anticipated our needs. The truth is that the walk, the night in the desert, and what you see until you get there are worth it if you have a few days to have a first contact with the desert. Thanks to Said who organized everything with great patience from the beginning since we were 3 people and at all times he was watching us before, during and after the excursion, although he could not come with us. Thank you for this experience that we will always remember!

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 Fez, and passing through the desert, we have been learning a little more about its culture, religion, customs, …
Between crazy and funny anecdotes lived together with Moha, we have lived 3 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.

An incredible experience, all super nice and attentive. Even the 6-hour trip was enjoyable with the great songs that our super guide Hassan gave us. The dromedary ride was also an incredible experience watching the sunset and sunrise. And the tents were better equipped than many hotels I’ve been to. It was beautiful to contemplate all the stars since there was no light practically all were visible. A 100% recommendable experience, everyone made us feel at home.

We have just arrived in Morocco. Some friends recommended the agency to us and especially Hassan, and although we only contacted Marrakech Tour Company to spend the night in the Erg Chebbi desert and finally we were unable to meet Hassan as a guide, it was quite a success to contact them. The impeccable organization and Said and his companions some ten guides: friendly, attentive to any need, and creating a good atmosphere at all times. I read very good comments about the agency and I certainly confirm them. Thank you for your good work.
