Everything was great with Viajes Morocco. The guide, the tour…it all was an incredible experience! I really hope I can do it again.
Booked our private tour with Viajes Morocco. It was an excellent trip from start to finish
One of the best trips so far! My brother, his girlfriend, and I took a 7-day tour with Viajes Morocco. I can’t recommend it enough. Our guides were very nice, and helpful.
What an amazing experience! If you want a great authentic experience, go with these guys! We loved Yussef and Moha! Moha was so knowledgeable and really taught us a lot about the Berber culture. (…) I’m already planning my next trip and I’ll definitely be contacting them!
We felt like family with Ahmed and his crew of great hosts. We were picked up in Marrakech and spent a wonderful two days and one night in the desert, with splendid views of the Atlas Mtns and the Sahara and everything in between. (…). Highly, highly recommended 🙂
