What people are saying about Fes

When you book a tour anywhere it can be hit or miss. Especially when you are two girls travelling alone. But this one was DEFINITELY a HIT. Hachem, our driver was AMAZING. Super knowledgeable about the history and customs and all too happy to share. In multiple languages! He made sure that everything ran smoothly and we felt safe and looked after. We did not need to worry about or think about ANYTHING. He took us to all the best places and advised what to buy and where so that we only got the best things at the best prices. The more we asked, the more we learnt and unravelled stories. The tour itself was incredible. I did not expect the extent of the change in the landscape and the vastness of the space. I won't ruin it for you with too many details. Food and accommodation were fabulous. We were a bit worried about travelling in Ramadan, but this was not an issue at all. The added quad biking was super cool. The strangers who met in the car became a family. And THAT was AMAZING.

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.

Fantastic service start to finish. Hachem took great care of me the last two days of the trip. Fantastic experience to see a nice piece of Morocco. Desert experience was amazing and the entire team from camel rides, to food and entertainment were done very well. I'd highly recommend this for anyone wanted to get a feel for the desert, but not commit to a longer stay, or for someone/family limited by time.

Our 3 days desert experience from Fes to Marrakech was excellent. The Sahara experience especially was a bucket list experience and one we’ll never forget! A special thanks to Hachim our driver who drove us around Morocco for 3 days! His positive energy and enthusiasm made the journey very enjoyable! I highly recommend this desert experience!

The trip from Fez to Marrakech was extremely well organised. Our guide Hassan was of exemplary professionalism and showed us much more than we expected.
