I went on a 12-day tour to Morocco, starting from Casablanca with my boyfriend and his friend, Idir, who was our tour guide. The highlight of the trip was our desert excursion in Merzouga, where we visited nomads and experienced a camelback ride to see how the Berbers live. I highly recommend the tour company we used, and I'm especially grateful to Idir for being our driver and guide.
