    Great excursion, great guide! We went on a 5-day excursion with Marrakech Expedition, from Marrakech to the desert near Merzouga and back. Everything was very well planned, we were taken to the main sites and places, all the hotels they booked for us were excellent. Our guide, Mohammed was really great, an expert driver and a great guy to talk to, we really enjoyed the time we spent travelling with him. Highly recommended!

Very kind and patient with the kids, suggesting interesting places to visit on the way to our planned destinations and helping us with whatever we needed. An unforgettable experience for us, the kids can’t wait to visit this beautiful country & people again. Thanks a lot!

    Amazingly enjoyable trip through Morocco Wonderful trip organised for us which afforded us understanding & views of Moroccan landscapes, country, culture and people. Excellent accommodations chosen in amazing Rhiads for us. Excellent restaurants for all meals were organised for us. Excellent cultural stops and shopping opportunities. Excellent guides very knowledgable, local and with good English. Driver Moha was excellent driver & kept us on time and enjoying everything at the same time. Superb custom trip in an incredibly interesting country. The only thing at all negative was the first night’s accommodation in Casablanca (very late arrival through incredible traffic after our flight, no dinner available, apparently nowhere to purchase bottled water except from the waiter, and room was very noisy on main roads with hotel staff unhelpful. ) Would recommend this company and their tour planning. Had an amazing trip. Loved it.
