Testimonials & Reviews
Charlotte v

Fantastic Morocco Trip!!!

Desert Merzouga Tours created a fantastic 10 days Morocco tour from Casablanca for my husband and me. We were greeted at the airport by a very lovely driver, Lhoucine, who was more than just a driver because he made our trip so memorable as we traveled over the nation in a luxury van. We traveled through the Rif and Atlas mountains, stopping in Casablanca, Rabat, Fes, Asilah, Chefchaoen, and Marrakech, and spent one-night glamping in the Sahara Desert, including camel riding. The other nights were spent in extremely good riads and a guest house that included breakfast and some that included lunch and dinner. The guest house has two swimming pools and a hot tub, and it provides an excellent dinner in a lovely setting. Our driver, Lhoucine, allowed us to stop in a variety of locations to photograph the breathtaking beauty – valleys, mountains, plains, rivers, oceans, cities, and villages. The Berber people’s visits to fossil mines, argon oil manufacturing, and carpet making were breathtaking. We will definitely return to Morocco and use the Desert Merzouga trips again. It was wonderful to have a trip planned out with attractions, guides, lodging, and transportation that was flexible.

Excellent guides, highly recommend

We had a fantastic time traveling through Morocco in a private car with Aziz and Ali as our guides/drivers (from Casablanca to Rabat, Chefchaouen, Fes, the Sahara Desert, Dades, Ourazazete, Marrakech, and back to Casablanca). They were wonderfully attentive, amusing, and constantly willing to accommodate our wishes (including our preference for very early starts). The highlight, though, was their Berber hospitality and the opportunity to learn about their culture.

I highly recommend Aziz and Ali to transport and show you about Morocco. The automobile was really comfortable, and we always felt safe and well-cared for.

I would also propose going to the Sahara desert if you have the time to spend a night beneath the stars and listening to Berber music around the fire:)
Thank you for an unforgettable trip!!!

Best Morocco tour with D.M.T

We had an excellent journey with Desert Merzouga Tours from Casablanca for 10 days Morocco tour from Casablanca. We had many fabulous experiences in many fantastic places like Hassan 2 mosque, Chefchaouen the blue city where we took gorgeous images, and the quiet was the most important thing we gained. After that, we went to the Roman site Volubiles and had a lovely lunch in Meknes, where we discovered the magnificence of its architecture (walls, palaces, prison, large pool, and notable gates such as bab Mensor). Fes was a great experience for an old city trip; we loved the traditional handicrafts, etc.

After the imperial towns, we traveled to the desert, where we had wonderful memories, good camp, lovely camels, sand dunes and gorgeous of Todgha, as well as the high atlas snake roads…
The accommodations were so good, and the people were so nice and helpful that we felt like we were all part of one big family. Lhoucine was our driving guide, and he is a wonderful person.

I wholeheartedly suggest 100% Desert Merzouga Tours for their excellent service and fantastic lodgings.
