⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ By Shari Varughese

My parents and I loved everything about this trip. Hamid was very attentive to making sure we had the perfect itinerary and accommodation in our 10 day trip. Our driver Rabia was the PERFECT tour guide for us. We can’t say enough good things about him. We LOVE him. He was so caring and kept making sure we enjoyed each day. He is a wonderful guy with a great heart. He is family to us now and we hope to come back to Morocco and explore more of this beautiful country and people. Thanks to this company and people for opening their hearts to us. Until we meet again 🇲🇦❣️

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ By Jana Dybinski

We had an amazing trip through Morocco organized by Hamid! I truly can’t imagine a more organized, responsive, or trustworthy company to work with. Our guide Rabia was wonderful and made the trip exactly what we wanted it to be - for us that meant avoiding the super touristy places, stopping for photos, and connecting with the Moroccan people and culture. As two young female travellers we felt safe, so we’ll taken care of, and the accommodations exceeded expectations at every stop. If you are thinking of booking a tour through Morocco, stop looking at other options and book here! You won’t be disappointed.

Very recommendable travel agency! We (my husband, myself, two kids 14 and 16 years) booked a seven day tour with Hamid starting from Marrakech via Boumalne Dades, Merzouga (Sahara), Fes, Rabat and Casablanca. Hamid planed everything perfectly, replied to messages within very short time and was helpful at any time. Thank you! Our driver Hamid (different Hamid from travel agent at the office) was the best driver you could wish for. Not only that he was a safe driver but also extremely friendly, funny, honest, always on time and helpful! Thank you SO MUCH FOR EVERYTHING HAMID! From the pick up at the airport until the drop off and good bye at the airport everything worked out perfectly. Thank you again 😊
