8 Days Desert Tour from Tangier to Marrakech reviews on Tripadvisor:

Best 8 Days Desert Tour from Tangier to Marrakech ever with my wife: Lovely Morocco Tours helped us with a customised 8 Day Desert tour from Tangier to fit our availability in Morocco. There was no hidden charges. Our driver, Youssef was very friendly and made us feel safe and comfortable through out the trip. Youssef was punctual and went above and beyond to make sure we have a great time and also shared stories with us about the country and history. He took great care of us and not only shared his knowledge of Morocco but also allowed us to taste local food that we never would have tried without him! Every day he gave us different choices of where to eat and we were never disappointed and really felt that our tour was geared to our needs. We were taken around in a relatively new Van with AC and it was very clean. Accommodation was also in good locations and very good and clean. When it came to the camel trek and the overnight stay, everything was perfect and ran so smoothly! It was special tour and the highlight of our 8 Days Morocco trip from Tangier to Marrakech. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone going to Morocco!!
