      We had a wonderful time with our tour guide. Moha and Hassan were available 24/7, always smiling, and always had water for us. Hassan is very knowledgeable about his country; he was accommodating to our needs and made us feel safe and comfortable. We enjoyed the camel ride and the riads, especially Riad Ksar Anica in Marrakesh. The tenting accommodations could use some improvement. Thank you, Moha, for helping us plan a trip of a lifetime. Thank you to Hassan for making it memorable.
    • Lina
      The agency is absolutely recommended. We traveled with Hassan; he was very friendly, and we felt very comfortable with everything. Morocco is a beautiful country. We met in many places. We will return and hire this agency again. Thanks a lot, Hassan. So, if you are traveling to Morocco, I advise you to contact Africa North Journeys and hire Hassan as your driver guide.
