A once-in-a-lifetime trip!

I recently got back from a 7-day trip I took with Desert Merzouga Tours across Morocco. The vacation was planned for us by Hassan, who was very accommodating to all of our inquiries and wishes. Hassan was really nice to include me to the schedule when I joined two companions who had previously made travel arrangements. Everything was really well planned out, our guides showed up on time, the lodging lived up to expectations, and Hassan was always easily reachable via WhatsApp. Our trip to Morocco was certainly made exceptional by our guide Aziz. He was a gentleman, a first-rate tour guide, and incredibly nice. Additionally, he had a fantastic soundtrack that kept us entertained during our travels. We had a great time getting to know him and discovering more about his culture and family. Additionally, we were grateful that he put up with all of our strange inquiries and absurd jokes. Oh my goodness, you are incredible, my friend! We went to Casablanca, Marrakesh, Meknes, and Fez throughout our trip. We rode camels into the desert for an overnight stay in tents after crossing the Atlas Mountains, staying the previous night at a lovely hotel in Fes. It’s difficult to pick a favorite location among the desert sunsets, medina shopping, excellent dinners and welcoming hosts in our riads, and the vibrant colors of the country. However, our time in the desert definitely comes the closest. 

Working with Hassan and his group is something I wholeheartedly suggest if you’re considering a trip to Morocco. From the beginning to the end, you will be in great hands. Morocco is a mysterious country. We appreciate Hassan and Aziz for making this vacation one we will never forget!

fantastic seven days in Morocco

In March, my 19-year-old son and I went on a 7-day tour and had a blast. It was simple to connect with Hassan via Whatsapp to arrange the trip, and he was quite receptive to schedule changes as we traveled.

For instance, after speaking with our tour guide Rachid, who is from the desert, about his experience there, we chose to stay in Merzouga for two nights instead of just one. We had a great time when Rachid brought us 4 wheeling in his truck in the desert. Over the course of our seven-day excursion, I had the impression that Rachid and I grew close.

As some have already mentioned, I was a little apprehensive about paying in cash when I arrived, but Hassan and Rachid didn’t ask for any money until the very final day of our vacation, and by that time, I was extremely at ease with Rachid and okay with paying in cash.

We used to have Moroccan mint tea at every meal, and I still miss it.

Incredible Honeymoon with our Driver

Having taken numerous tour groups over the years, I assumed there might be other people on our vacation when I scheduled this one.

As soon as we were picked up from the airport, we discovered that my wife and I would have a private driver and tour guide for the following 7 days in Morocco, which was ideal for your honeymoon. Our driver, Youssef, was really kind to us when we were with him.

The stops, views, and activities were appropriate for the time period we were given, and the lodging was excellent. You spend a lot of time in the car on trips, but it was pleasant and peaceful, with the air conditioning keeping us cool. (We traveled early in June.)

In addition, the cost for everything we had was unbeatable. Although most excursions aren’t included, Morocco is a very inexpensive place to travel.

Our driver and the entire trip were wonderful. From Casablanca, go to Marrakech, Fes, and the Atlas Mountains.

Don’t fly Air Maroc because they are the worst airline I’ve ever used. Instead, visit Morocco and make travel arrangements through Desert Merzouga Tours.
