I had a five-day trip to Morocco, which included sightseeing. Our tour guide, Mohamed, was excellent and went through every detail of the excursion in great detail. My favorite aspects of the trip were the desert and the camel ride. When we got to the camp, the sky was a sea of stars, and they were playing music for us. In general, I'd want to thank them for their assistance and recommend them to anyone thinking about visiting Morocco.
