We had an amazing unforgettable experience with Rida! All of the tours in Fez, The Blue City, Rabat, and Casablanca were well coordinated with each of the local city guides, riads/lodging partners, highly educational and authentic. I would recommend this tour to anyone and everyone wanting to do a cross country tour around Morocco in a short amount of time. If you appreciate local food as we do, you can always ask for recommendations and the crew will introduce you to their favorite spots for food & drink. They can also introduce you to boutiques specializing in authentic local specialty goods in an otherwise confusing Medina shopping setting -- one of the most exciting purchases for us was a colorful berber rug in Fez. Exploring the Blue City was the highlight of this trip for its stunning architecture and unique monochromatic buildings and houses. Thanks for all of the photos you helped us capture!

We’ll-planned itinerary allowed us to see and experience a lot of what these cities are and offer. The riads where we stayed were clean and comfortable and the staff were helpful and went out of their way to make us feel welcomed. The local guides were outstanding. The walks with them were fun and informative. The first thing they always did was talk with us about the plan for the walk and ask if we had changes or suggestions. As the walk progressed, they were flexible in terms of adding stops as time permitted. There was a lot of driving during the 3 days. The driver was excellent, he made regular stops for food/drinks, bathroom and photo breaks. Also, he stopped along the road to show/explain to us geographical and/or historical landmarks. Because of all of the above, the road trip wasn’t overwhelming. Highly recommend this experience.

The journey is quite long (7 hours round trip) but it's totally worth it: the city of Ait Ben Haddou is sumptuous, it's like in the photos. I thought I was in Aladdin. On the other hand, I liked ourzazate less because the visit to the kasbah was much less interesting than that of ait ben haddou and in addition, the entrance is paying. Fortunately we stopped there only at the end of the day for 30min. Thanks to the driver and guide who were great. A day that will remain engraved forever

A magnificent outing to do, a breathtaking setting in the heart of the Atlas Mountains ⛰️ a Houcine guide who is just adorable, benevolent and very funny!! Houcine sends us all his love for his region and its Berber people... Honestly a heavenly outing, we loved it ✨

Amazing tour to Ifrane and the national park including other stops like the Berber cave and a lookout point plus having a break for delicious food. Driver/guide was awesome. Absolutely to recommend.
