Eccezionale veramente ECCEZIONALE. 5 giorni con loro, non ci siamo preoccupati di nulla, la guida super cortese e premurosa, ci ha fatto visitare vari luoghi e fatto fare esperienze uniche. Assaggiare ristoranti tipici e ci ha insegnato le usanze dei vari luoghi. Un esperienza indimenticabile la notte nel deserto, che vale le molte ore di viaggio. La passeggiata sui dromedari molto suggestivo. Per non parlare del tramonto nelle dune del deserto. Sabbia soffice come zucchero a velo.

Tour in Marocco Ho scelto questa agenzia dopo averne sentite diverse, Mustapha mi è stato tanto dietro per la scelta del tour che più mi piaceva e dei vari alloggi. Le aspettative erano molto alte e sono state superate a pieno! Nel nostro percorso abbiamo avuto il piacere di avere come autista Mustapha, che oltre a essere una persona di cuore, e’ sempre stato attento a tutte le nostre esigenze, sempre puntuale e disponibile Abbiamo visto dei posti bellissimi e quello che ci ha più colpito è che questo tour ti fa vivere la realtà del popolo marocchino e non ha nessun tipo di influenza turistica Grazie della bella esperienze A presto 💖

Fantastic Experience! 26/04- 01/05/2024 My husband, I and another couple of friends set off for our first experience in Morocco by relying on Desert Discovery Tours. We had some initial hesitations, but we were pleasantly surprised. Among the different proposals, we chose the 6 days and 5 nights tour in the desert. We traveled aboard a very comfortable Toyota Landcruiser and also perfect for exciting off-road excursions in the desert. Our guide (and driver), Ihouchine, was very helpful and equally discreet, always ready to share his knowledge of local culture and traditions. The riads and tented camps chosen for us were very comfortable. We tasted traditional foods in typical restaurants (the Tjine in all its "sauces", the couscous and the Moroccan salad were unmissable). The landscapes of the Atlas Mountains, the golden dunes, the starry skies, the spectacular sunrises and sunsets, the dromedary ride, the visits to the Berber villages, the Kasbahs and the mine were all unforgettable experiences. We recommend Desert Discovery Tours to anyone who wants an authentic, well-organized adventure.
Memorable trip with friends to Morocco Beautiful country and friendly hospitable people . And many thanks to Desert Discovery for the arrangements, recommendations and of course patiently helping us with paperwork for visa . Thanks Mustapha and Mustapha . Thanks to their diligent planning and customising to suit our requirements, we never felt any fatigue after the long drives accompanied by my dear friends and witty Mustapha for company 😁. ( And bollywood playlists in the background. ) Really enjoyed the myriad landscapes in Morocco from Ifrane ,Ziz valley , Dades, Merzouga to the busy medinas souks of Marrakesh and Fes . And the bluewashed Chefchaoun and urban Casablanca. Truly a treat for all senses . Including the acrobatic spider we met in Merzouga 🫣

Discovering the real Morocco Beautiful experience! A really interesting tour that introduced us to the Real Morocco! Our driver and guide Brahim was kind, very helpful, he told us many curiosities about some of the places we visited. It was also very nice to make me a surprise birthday cake during the bonfire in the desert.. really thank you! I recommend this tour, because it's really worth it! Spending a night in the desert is something unique! Thanks also to Mustapha for his availability!

Morocco, what a beautiful country An amazing experience with a great company! We engaged with Mustafa prior to our trip, customized our trip based on our target spots and timelines. His advice based on the local knowledge was invaluable. His recommendations of the Riads and restaurants were excellent. We were pleasantly surprised with the variety of vegetarian food in Morocco! Top your food with Harissa to give it the zing. The other Mustafa drove us around in a super comfortable van - 3000 in in 8 days and we never felt it. Morocco offers diverse topography- the dessert camp in the Sahara to the Dades Valley Gorge, the Medina in Fes and Marrakech and the Roman ruins in Vollubilis. A great trip for history buffs. The country values its heritage - Amazhir and Arabs. We had local guides in each of the cities arranged by Dessert Discivery. A country very safe for everyone and as a group of women we felt very safe thanks to Dessert Discovery Travels.

Great tour, 100% would recommend I booked the 11-day tour with my friend. We had a great time and were able to see many beautiful villages and cities of Morocco. Mustapha was an amazing tour guide who accomodated for all our requests along the trip and was friendly & helpful at all times. All the hotels were great! I would definitely recommend Desert Discovery Tours to anyone who is looking to spend a great time in Morocco.

Amazing Tour That Exceeded Our Expectation A friend and I booked an 11 day tour with Desert Discovery Tours and had Mustapha as a guide. The tour itself was amazing. We saw so much of Morocco that we not have been able to see otherwise. It included lots of driving and Mustapha made us feel safe and comfortable along the journey. He was very professional and knowledgeable on the various site that’s we visited. If we ever needed anything, he was always reachable and helpful. I appreciate the companies ability to personalise the tour to our liking. We made changes along the way to suit our preferences and the company was able to accomodate these changes very quickly. It was all well organised from start to finish. The accomodation every single time was a 10/10. We stayed in some beautiful and luxurious hotels/riads. It was exciting to see what was next. The breakfasts were nice. Dinners were included in certain hotels, particularly those more isolated from towns, thus harder to find restaurants for dinner. Chefchaouen and the desert part of the tour was our favourite. Can’t wait to come back to Morocco and see even more next time.
