– Tanner B: Top Notch Moroccan Adventure with kindest guides on the planet.

“YALLA! We booked the 3 days 2 night Saharan desert tour from Fes to Marrakech. Do it! You will not regret it. We travel a lot and I can honestly say Rachid and crew are some of the best tour guides we have ever had. We traveled with our 4 children ages 3 -11. Rachid and Mustafa were amazing. Genuinely great people with a clear passion for what they do. They were kind and friendly and we all really enjoyed our time with them. They were very accommodating of our children through tantrums, sleepiness, singing, and a bit of car sickness. The camel trek and night sky at the Milky Way camp were incredible. Lively crew, good food, amazingly warm, and comfy accommodations. They were so great that we ended up using their recommended guides in both Fez and Marrakech.”

– Marc: Amazing adventure

Starting from the beginning I attempted contacting several tour companies to book our adventure without response. I contacted Ismail by email and he was VERY responsive. He would reply within minutes usually and that is including a 6 hour time difference.

He organized a 3-day tour starting in Fes, heading towards the Sahara to ride camels and sleep under the stars in a tent. We saw many sights along the way to Marrakesh.

The trip was worth every penny! Our private guide Mostafa treated us like family and made sure we were happy and enjoying ourselves. He would pull over so we could take pictures. He made sure we didn’t overpay for souvenirs or food for that matter. It truly was an amazing experience!
