    5 days from Marrakech
    • andreas
      During our 5-day tour in Morocco from Marrakech, the four of us made stops at locations including Marrakech, the Sahara Desert, and Fes. It was an incredible trip with Mohamed from Africa North Journey. He invited us to lunch in his home, provided us with all the help we needed, and made sure we had everything we required. He also gave us a detailed history of Morocco. This is a tour I will never forget.
    • Maria
      Lahsen was our driver, and Mohamed also joined us during our trip. They organized the route and hotels for us; they were very nice, clean, and beautiful. Although the journey was lengthy, we were able to witness a vast expanse of Morocco, spanning from west to south, from south to north, through deserts and mountains, sampling delectable cuisine and exploring cities such as Ouarzazate, Fes, and Marrakech, as well as smaller villages like Ait Ben Haddou, all surrounded by breathtaking landscapes. They have plenty of experience and know where to stop to see monkeys, where to eat in local restaurants, etc. Lahsen speaks perfect Spanish.
