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.

Highly recommended agency When we travel abroad we always prefer to rely on local agencies rather than Italian ones and in our research we found this agency which had excellent ratings. We had a great time, we did the 8 day imperial cities tour from Casablanca, with a night in the desert. The night in the desert was magical, the booked camp was immersed in nothingness and very suggestive. The birthday cake surprise in front of the bonfire was much appreciated! The organization of the tour was excellent and all the hotels booked were excellent, the riad in Fes in particular was something wonderful. A special thanks to our driver, Mustapha K., who was always kind and available to our requests and told us a lot of curiosities about Morocco and its culture, letting us discover details that only locals can let us know. He also gave us great restaurant recommendations in different cities. Sooner or later we will return to Morocco to visit the northern part and we will certainly rely on this agency again, which we highly recommend.

From Marrakech to the Sahara We opted for the three-day excursion departing from Marrakech towards the Sahara desert. Communication with the agency takes place via WhatsApp and is very practical and fast. It was a wonderful experience that I would absolutely do again. The guide who accompanied us also showed us some unscheduled gems which were very welcome!

The true essence of Morocco, a unique and unforgettable experience! MARVELOUS Trusting Mustapha and his team was the best choice we could have made! From the moment we arrived until we left, we felt welcomed and pampered. We discovered Morocco in all its beauty and without filters: the real Morocco, which conquered us and made us fall in love! We chose to do the week-long tour of the great south. We discovered Marrakech, its colorful Medina, the High Atlas mountains, visited various kasbahs and local villages, the Todra gorges and the Dadès valley and then arrived in the wonderful desert, where the Dihya Desert Camp welcomed us in a unique and magical atmosphere that will remain imprinted in our hearts forever! Every experience we had was unique because it was true! Nothing built specifically for tourists, but we experienced true Moroccan life, including meeting a nomadic family from the desert who touched our soul, giving us a precious gift of personal growth. Morocco has stunned us, we left with few expectations and instead discovered a wonderful land, an important and imposing nature that gives you amazing views at every corner; warm, welcoming and always kind people, ready to share the little or much they have; a 'poor' cuisine but rich in flavor and a thousand-year-old culture in which we have immersed ourselves. All this would not have been possible without Desert Discovery Tour, which organized our tour in the best possible way, selecting the best Riads and Hotels for us, making us meet highly trained local guides, organizing different experiences for us and supporting us with the best driver who could have done it, also Mustapha, who in excellent Italian told us about Morocco, his life, his culture which accompanied us on an extraordinary journey full of emotions! We promised that we will return to see the north of Morocco and its splendid coasts, but above all we will return to meet those who have become friends! Thank you for what you made us experience!

Desert tour We did the 3 day Sahara desert tour with a private guide. Mustapha was so welcoming, easy to get along with and he had great knowledge of all the areas we drove through. We saw so much in 3 days and wouldn't have been able to do so without this tour. We absolutely loved it and would recommend it to anyone!

Unforgettable experience Fantastic experience crossing the southern hinterland of Morocco, from Marrakech to the Merzouga desert, on the border with Algeria. We saw breathtaking views, enjoyed the desert in a beautiful field truly lost in thin air. We also passed through villages, being able to see first-hand how the Berber people live, even finding ourselves under one of their tents in the middle of the desert drinking their tea and eating their bread, all together. Authentic and enriching experience. Thanks to Mustapha, Ali, and the whole team!

The real Morocco A magnificent experience shared with our guide Mustapha O. He was nice, kind and really helpful in trying to accommodate all our requests. We spent 3 days with him in the car, alternating moments of joking with others in which he explained to us what we were visiting. The desert was something indescribable... there are no words, it must be experienced. Super recommended experience to experience the real Morocco!! Absolutely proportionate quality/price ratio.
