Excellency is our Passion
Mustapha is the best!! This is an amazing tour!! Mustapha picked us up (me, my husband, and daughter) in Fes and we enjoyed two nights in the desert and learning more about Moroccan culture. Mustapha invited us to his family home where he served us Berber pizza - yum!! We originally booked a tour thru to Marrakech but had to change plans last minute and it was no problem. All of the Desert Discovery team were attentive to our requests, responded to all communications, and accommodated our last minute changes. Truly a wonderful experience. Mustapha has great energy - he was always smiling and laughing and fun to be around.

Wild true Marocco Tour in Marocco da mille ed una notte.L’agenzia locale a cui ci siamo rivolti è stata perfetta sotto ogni punto di vista. Abbiamo vissuto un tour privato che ci ha permesso di scoprire il vero marocco, quello lontano dai lustri e dal turismo. Mustapha ci ha seguiti, guidati e consigliati sotto ogni punto vista. È diventato come un fratello minore per noi. Organizzatissimo ed operativo ha organizzato e gestito tutto in modo eccedente, senza farci mancare mai nulla.Se volete andare in Marocco appoggiatevi alla loro agenzia, chiedete di Mustapha, ed la magia avrà inizio.
Indimenticabile tour Che viaggio incredibile abbiamo fatto in Marocco. Un tour di 8 giorni “on the road” organizzato alla perfezione grazie a Mustapha, un ragazzo fantastico ed estremamente disponibile che ci ha accompagnati per tutto il viaggio. Bravissimo, paziente, organizzato, sempre col sorriso e pronto ad accogliere e realizzare ogni nostra richiesta.Ci ha fatto vedere i luoghi più belli del Marocco, dai più famosi ai meno conosciuti, dalle città più celebri a quelle meno note, dai luoghi rinomati a quelli più nascosti e sconosciuti, anche grazie a delle ottime guide locali da lui selezionate. Ciliegina sulla torta è stata la notte in mezzo al deserto che abbiamo raggiunto con un tour in groppa a dei dromedari in mezzo alle dune. Bellissimo e lussuoso il camp in cui abbiamo dormito. In ogni occasione ci ha fatto vivere a pieno ed a fondo la cultura marocchina. Ci siamo affidati completamente a lui per tutto il viaggio, anche per la scelta degli hotel e Riad che sono sempre stati ottimi. Affidatevi a questa agenzia e sono sicura che vivrete un esperienza unica come quella che abbiamo vissuto noi. Non dimentichiamoci anche dell’ottimo rapporto qualità prezzo. Grazie di tutto Mustapha, per la tua pazienza, il tuo sorriso e le attenzioni che hai avuto per noi. Sei stato parte del nostro incredibile viaggio e non ti dimenticheremo ❤️
IDEAL MOROCCO GUIDES AND TRIP Where to begin.... We do not normally do "tours." We prefer to arrange our own travel and adventure on our own. However, we are SO incredibly happy with our choice to have Mustapha and his team handle our Morocco trip. We also rarely return to places we've already been but we found ourselves talking with our guide about what we would do with him on our next trip there. Hammou is so wonderful, our 7 y.o. daughter (and we) missed him during our free day in Marrakech. Note, Jan 1 was our free day but Hammou was available and offered for us to let him know if we wanted him to take us anywhere that day. Actually, since we were short on time, he helped us get some things on our souvenir checklist. Communication is via WhatsApp and they are very responsive. I never waited long for a response. They were very helpful in answering all my questions. They planned everything, which was a dream. And there are many things we would not have known, so there's no way we could have had such a great trip on our own. We flew into Tangier and out of Casablanca through Chechaouen, Fes, the desert (a must), etc. and all around en route to Marrakech. They arranged all local guides, hotels, some meals, an Internet device since one of us was working and had to be connected. Internet worked great on our AT&T iPhones almost everywhere except a few spots around the desert. All hotels had WiFi. All hotels they chose were great (we live at a 5-star resort so I think that says a lot). I HIGHLY recommend...in fact, we have friends already set to do this trip in April and I already long to go back. Just tell them how many days you have and they will present you with an ideal itinerary and dissolve any planning headache you may have. Enjoy!

Amazing tour!! We had amazing days in Morocco! Mustapha helped us to organize a beautiful trip and our guide Hassan was marvelous… ask for Hassan and your tour will be simply perfect!!
if you are planning a trip to the desert during the winter months, keep in mind that there is no heating in the tents 😊 All the recommendations for Mustafa, a young and responsible guide who made our four days in the desert unforgettable.

Amazing Tour & Driver, highly recommended Our desert tour was great and that was mostly thanks to Ibrahim Bouhayek, who is not only a great driver, but also a very knowledgeable guide. Ibrahim showed us around the beautiful scenery and made our experience truly unforgettable. The night in the desert was also an awesome adventure. Highly recommended tour!

LOVE IT I highly recommend this trip. It was one of the best experience I had. Marocco it’s a beautiful country with such a range of landscape. My favorite part was desert. The company and the guide that they provided was taking care of us on every step. Even when we forgot to get all of our stuff from the cat they make sure that they catch us after few days and give back our things. The plan of the trip is excellent and you will see everything. Also we have a big car only for ourselves so during trip we could feel comfortable and take a nap. Both of the accommodations were amazing. I highly recommend to everyone. It was the best part of our Marocco trip❤️
