What a great tour 🇲🇦🐪 We chose Desert Discovery Tours & Morocco Travels to tour Morocco. Our guide was Mustapha, a friendly guy who knows his land very well and who drew up a 7-day road trip plan for us that included Marrakech, the High Atlas, the Dades Valley, Ait-Ben-Haddou , Ourzazate, the Valley of the Roses, the Todra Gorges, Merzouga with the experience in the Sahara desert, Rissani with its characteristic market, the Middle Atlas, Volubilis, Chefchaouen (the blue city) and lastly Fes. Mustapha was not only our guide, our driver and our point of reference, but he was our friend, sharing the joy of this journey with us and never letting us miss anything. He also booked beautiful Riads and Hotels in incredible and strategic locations, including the night in the desert. We loved Morocco and can't wait to go back to visit the other great imperial cities. We recommend this fantastic experience to everyone. 🇲🇦❤️
Easy Breezy Adventure with Desert Discovery After deciding to travel to Morocco we saw recommendations that life is much easier with a tour company especially with all the driving and sights we wanted to see. After researching many companies we settled on Desert Discovery after reading their stellar reviews. Their pricing was also much more competitive than other companies. Desert Discovery worked with us to tailor our itinerary over WhatsApp before we arrived and gave us confidence that we would see many amazing sites. As soon as we arrived our driver Mohammed was waiting right outside of the airport gates and whisked us off to our adventure. During our trip we visited Marrakech / Atlas Mountains / spent the night in the Desert / Fes / Chefchaouen / Casablanca. Mohammed gave us an overview of what we were doing each day and answered our numerous questions and made sure we were comfortable in everything we did. We also had local guides set up by Desert Discovery in Marrakech and Fes that gave us great insight into these cities. As others have probably said, our favorite place in the entire trip was the desert and we rode camels the first night to watch the sunset and rode ATVs the second night to watch the sunset again. Top five experience of a lifetime. The entire trip was seamless and we didn’t have any issues anywhere. There was a lot of time spent driving so if we had to do it again we would probably cut out some cities like Chefchaouen (the blue city). While it’s gorgeous to see there isn’t that much to do and adds a lot of hours in the car. All in all a really amazing worry free adventure. Book yours now!
Marocco May 2023 Sicuramente da consigliare. Abbiamo fatto un tour da Fes al deserto di Merzouga, con tappe intermedie ed escursioni nel deserto sia con il cammello che con la jeep. Hamid, la nostra guida è stato molto professionale, riservato ma gentile. Alloggi super, sia in tenda che nel dar a Merzouga.
Esperienza piena di Emozioni, Colori, Paesaggi e Cultura Abbiamo fatto un tour privato di 4 giorni da Marrakech fino al deserto. Un'esperienza fantastica! Abbiamo avuto modo di visitare diverse città, punti panoramici e fare diverse esperienze (Deserto, campo nomadi e mercato di Rissani su tutte).I ragazzi che ci hanno accompagnato in questo viaggio (Youssef e Hassan - Autista e Guida) sono stati bravissimi. Ci siamo divertiti molto ed è stato un pò come fare un viaggio di gruppo tra amici. I posti in cui abbiamo alloggiato a dir poco bellissimi, cibo molto buono e servizio sempre cortese.Assolutamente consigliato, sia per la professionalità, ma sopratutto per la fantastica esperienza che ci hanno fatto vivere.
Unforgettable Morocco So, what about morocco?It was an unforgettable experience! Mustapha made sure we were taking care of in every single thing, from the accommodation in the many fabulous riad we visit to the many activities during our stay. We did a tour from chefchauen to marrakech visiting the imperial city, personally my two favourite moment were walking through fez with the amazing guide he provided for us, Aziz, a wonderful and caring man, and the night we spent in the desert camp, a magical moment I will always cherish in my heart, make sure to give some love to wifii the beautiful and funny dog who lives in the camp, he so playfull and full of joy.So if you are thinking to go visit the beautiful Morocco I will recommend 100% to go with them, you will not regret it, and 10 days were not enough.Thank you Mustapha for everything, you made us feel safe, and it's because of you amazing work we enjoyed our stay so much! It's like we have a little family there and can't wait to come back one day!
Viaggio Fes, Merzouga, Marrakech attraverso valli, deserti e montagne Splendida esperienza di viaggio da Fes a Marrakech, quattro giorni intensi in compagnia di Mohammed, che ci ha guidati su e giù, instancabile e gentile, attraverso paesaggi di una bellezza mozzafiato, dai boschi di cedro al deserto di pietra, dalle sabbie del Sahara, ai confini con l'Algeria, alle valli di Toudra e di Dadès, attraverso l'Atlante, raccontandoci e facendoci apprezzare e amare le tradizioni berbere (compresa la musica!).Abbiamo trovato su internet questa agenzia, e ci siamo trovati benissimo (siamo una famiglia con due figlie ventenni), ottima anche la scelta dei due hotel e dell'accampamento nel deserto, che abbiamo raggiunto a dorso di dromedario, forse l'esperienza più coinvolgente che ancora sogniamo, con la serata conclusa a suonare e cantare attorno al fuoco.Super consigliata!
MEMORABILE MAROCCO!!! We went in Morocco with him in April, the knowledge of the area, the enthusiasm for the sights, and the infectious energy made our experience truly unforgettable.The attention to detail and willingness to go above and beyond to make sure that we had a great time did not go unnoticed. From the interesting historical facts to the great restaurant recommendations, every moment spent toghether was a joy. From the amazing days spent in Fes in company of the great Aziz to the magical night in the desert, everything was wonderful and well organize. We appreciate the patience, kindness, and professionalism throughout the trip. They truly went above and beyond, and we are grateful for your efforts in making our time in Morocco so special and make us feel we have a family there.Thank you for making our trip memorable and for being an incredible guide. Your dedication and passion for your work shone through in every moment, and we are grateful to have had the opportunity to share this experience with you and explore Morocco with your guidance.If you are thinking to go, we truly recomend him you will not be dissapointed!!

Tour di 3 giorni nel cuore del Marocco Da Marrakech, passando per le valli marocchine, arrivando al fantastico deserto di Merzouga per poi concludere in bellezza con la magnifica Fes! Un grazie speciale va a Mustapha, la nostra fidata guida turistica, e ad Hamid, il nostro driver! Tour super consigliato se volete visitare tante realtà diverse del Marocco con ogni tipo di comodità! Il Van è molto spazioso, comodo e con aria condizionata, gli alloggi proposti sono molto belli e con ogni comfort. Ci siamo sentiti subito in famiglia. Mustapha è un ragazzo d’oro, si è messo a disposizione per qualsiasi cosa e, dopo aver saputo del compleanno di mio fratello, ha organizzato una torta a sorpresa durante la notte trascorsa nel camp nel deserto!!!Abbiamo vissuto un’esperienza straordinaria.Di certo consiglierò questo tour a tutti i miei amici che decideranno di visitare il Marocco, terra favolosa!

Fantastic experience!! Highly recommend! What a magical experience! Mustapha arranged with me a 9-day tour of all the highlights in Morroco (Casablanca, Rabat, Chefchaouen, Fes, Sahara, Marrakech, Essaouira), and helped book my accommodations and put together my itinerary prior to the trip. This was the only travel agency out of four that I asked that was willing to follow through with my requested itinerary at a reasonable price. Although I never got to meet Mustapha in person as Said was assigned my driver, Said accommodated to my every need and served as a fantastic tour guide as well. He gave tips and recommendations at every point during my trip to make sure I got the most out of each day. What an unforgettable experience! I highly recommend Desert Discovery Tours! I will be sure to recommend it to friends and family who would like to visit the beautiful country of Morocco. Thank you again to Mustapha and Said for an unforgettable trip!
