TRIPADVISOR REVIEWS:
Bucket list checked
Our fabulous trip to Morocco could not have been any better! Two couples traveled on the 11 night tour with Hmad and Yousef as our informative guide and driver. It was so great to be escorted entirely through the beautiful country. Each Riad was uniquely beautiful and very comfortable. Hmad’s compassion for his country was evident - we couldn’t have asked for a better guide. The tour was thorough and covered nearly all the highlights. We especially enjoyed visiting the Nomad families and experiencing their lifestyles, the camels to the Dunes Luxury Camp was another highlight, Todra Gorge can’t be missed! The Land Cruiser Prado was perfect for the off-road places to the Nomadic desert places. This was an incredible cultural experience and a highlight on my bucket list! Tripstomorocco.com was fabulous! Highly recommended! Thank you Hmad and Yousef, Mohammed and all the others that made our wonderful trip become a reality!

Magical Experience
We went to Morocco with very little knowledge about it’s culture and history. After touring the southern part with the aid and expertise of Hamid, our patient and caring guide and Hassan, our careful and protective driver, we return to our home country with hearts full and with so much love for Morocco. We also thank Mohammad for putting together an itinerary that allowed us to see the best sceneries of South Morocco. We will definitely share and recommend this magical experience with family and friends.
