Reviews: 7-day Tour from Tangier

Excellent recommendation! Well-planned tour; we left Tangier and traveled through beautiful scenery till we reached the desert. We rode a camel and spent an hour walking in the desert in Merzouga; it was the ideal setting for stunning images and a treat for the senses on all counts. It is advised to carry a sleeping bag this season. All staff members are kind and available. Also, the shower is heated, even in the desert. Paris and Romina

Vacations In Morocco

A once-in-a-lifetime experience, a trip that revealed scenes, people, and feelings that will stay with you forever; a journey into the past and present of the traditions of the "free men of the desert" through their architecture, medinas, palm groves, and kasbahs; a trip filled with aromas, prayers, textures, and colors; and a trip that is only possible thanks to their traditions, radiating an unending source of wisdom and knowledge.
