see what some of our clients say about this tour

I had an amazing time on a tour that was absolutely fantastic. The service was excellent and the staff were incredibly friendly and attentive. The location of the camp was breathtaking and the tents were equipped with everything we needed, such as warm blankets, lights, power outlets, hot water bathrooms, and wifi. The dinner and breakfast we had there was the best we had throughout our trip in Morocco. The transportation was also excellent, with a punctual and friendly driver who was always available to help us. We had a great experience with this agency in a short amount of time, and we highly recommend it for trips with friends or family. The staff is both professional and friendly, and the transportation is top-notch.
