Salem was the best guide! We saw so much more of Morocco than we expected to see, thanks to him. The car rides in between Marrakech and Merzouga, Merzouga and Fes are quite long, but the landscape and sites in between are gorgeous which helps make the time pass. The actual desert portion of the trip was INCREDIBLE, a definite must-do if you are coming to Morocco. I only wish we stayed one more day in the desert to offset the time in the car.

Trip at the top!!!! Lovely driver... Change of scenery guaranteed!!!! The evening under the Berber tents was great with all the comforts including toilets and showers inside the tent. The meals were excellent and the hotel in Merzougga splendid. In short, go there with your eyes closed!!!!!!!! Thank you for everything.

During a stopover from Seville to Fez, the guide showed us everything possible and in a very professional way even in a short time. I recommend to everyone
