Awesome holiday

Three friends and I traveled to Morocco for 8 days on a private tour. We followed the itinerary suggested by Hassan and everything went according to plan. Mustafa was our driver and guide, always very attentive and helpful, showing us the culture and customs of his country. I thank and recommend Hassan and his team.

Great organization

We did the one-week tour with Hassan and his team. Everything went perfectly well, even better than we had imagined. All the hotels were impeccable, including the stay in the desert. I'd like to highlight our friend and driver Ali. Super humorous, polite and friendly. Ali gave us lots of information about the culture of his country. Ali spoke enough English to pass on his knowledge and interact with us. We'd also like to say that our guide in Fez, Hamid, is very good. He's a very polite, attentive guy and he took the tour very smoothly, spending many hours with us.

A beautiful country!

I was in Morocco with my wife for 8 days in September-October 2019. I arrived via Tangier and left via Marrakesh. I visited the country's main attractions, all very well prepared by the great Hassan, who took care of all the details of our trip, from the driver, hotels, meals and tours. Everything was very good. Total safety and comfort. Our guide was Said, a wonderful person, who did everything and more than a little to please us and make us have an unforgettable trip through this wonderful country. I fully recommend Hassan's company,
