Highly recommend Morocco Helping Tours
My husband and I visited Morocco for our honeymoon and chose this company for our desert tour. They were absolutely amazing. Mohammed was incredibly informative and full of fun facts about every location we visited. He really knew his stuff. Hassan, our drivers was amazing too. They thought of everything for us to make our trip extra special and romantic as it was our honeymoon. We actually initially only booked them for the desert tour but ended up extending with them and traveled with them the rest of the time we were in Morocco. I could not say enough kind things about this company. They were great. I highly recommend them… Read more
