It was the best trip I have ever taken. We went to the most beautiful Moroccan cities, and we went to the desert where we rode camels and watched the sunset over the dunes. We had the unique experience of sleeping in the desert. By car we drove along roads through breathtaking landscapes and saw outstanding sights. Hamid was the perfect guide. He is friendly, kind, helpful, and extremely reliable. He showed us the essence of Morocco and guided us to the most beautiful places. I absolutely recommend traveling with Morocco Lovely Tours!

Simply amazing! We booked a 9-day tour with Saleh for 2 families flying in Tangier and out of Marrakech. I couldn’t be more pleased with the planned itinerary and we got to experience everything we had hoped to. The Riads and desert camp were all beautiful and well-appointed. The desert time was the highlight with a camel ride at sunset, and ATV riding through the desert with a sand boarding stop. The camp was very comfortable and small, so it felt quite personal. I absolutely recommend traveling with Morocco Lovely Tours! Best Travel Agency in Morocco! Thank you so much, Saleh for everything
