Reviews: 10-day Morocco tour from Fes

I got in touch with Youssef through some friends for a trip to Morocco with my boyfriend. He arranged everything efficiently, and Hassan welcomed us in Fes. We enjoyed our time with him and learned about the local culture.

Vacations In Morocco

I highly recommend this experience to everyone! We visited beautiful places like Ifrane, Fez, the desert, Tinghir, and the Dades Valley. Spending a night in the desert was the best part of the trip. We watched the sunset, sang and danced around the fire under the stars, and had a great time riding camels, quads, and 4x4s. Our guide Mustapha was amazing. I can't wait to do it again!
