Memorable Eight Day Tour of Morocco A group of six of us travelled from Hyderabad, India to Morocco in mid-February 2024 and we engaged the services of Desert Discovery Tours. We were extremely pleased with the services provided by Mustapha. I had Mustapha customize their standard 5-day tour to 8-day tour covering the route Casablanca -> Fes -> Middle Atlas Mountains -> Merzhouga Desert -> High Atlas Mountains -> Marrakech -> Casablanca. I had Mustapha upgrade all the riads/hotels to 5 star and he did a great job getting the best deal to us. We were provided with an 8-seater Ford van that was very comfortable for the six of us. Hotel Xaluca Aguelmam near Midelt was the highlight -- a complete wooden hotel right opposite a serene lake. Hotel Les Jardine de la Koutoubia in Marrakech was quite nice too. Overall, we had a great experience exploring the diverse terrain of Morocco ranging from heritage places to desert and snow peaks and gorges of Atlas Mountains. I highly recommend the services of Desert Discovery Tours in Morocco.

Tour indimenticabile Ringrazio l’agenzia per aver organizzato la nostra bellissima vacanza in Marocco e Brahim, persona gentile e bravissima nel suo lavoro. Abbiamo trascorso 4 magnifici giorni assieme a lui. Inoltre, essendo il mio compleanno, mi ha fatto una sorpresa la notte passata nell’accampamento nel deserto regalandomi una torta con il mio nome. Veramente fantastici! Consiglio vivamente di affidarvi a loro per programmare il vostro viaggio in Marocco. Grazie mille, esperienza fantastica. Consigliassimo

Trip of a Lifetime Desert Discovery Tours is an amazing company to work with. The planning of our trip was easy to arrange with them. We were taken care of from the time we stepped off the plane until we left. We cannot say enough about our guide and driver, Mustapha K! He listened to our questions and made sure that every aspect of the trip was superb. He adjusted the trip to our interests along the way. The hotels/riads we stayed in were excellent. The Riad Bahia Salam in Marrakech and the Dar Chefchaouen in Chefchaouen were outstanding and were one of the highlights of the trip. The other places were also excellent but these two stood out. Our adventure in the dessert with the camels was very special. The camp we stayed in was away from the other camps and the entertainment was festive and will always be remembered. Our stop in the Cedar Forest with the monkeys was unexpected and truly delightful. We cannot thank Mustapha K and the entire Desert Discovery team enough for the trip of a lifetime. We want to come back to see and experience more and will definitely book with them again.
