Amazing Travel

It was an amazing experience. 8 of my friends and I came for a week in Morocco we felt like we got to see everything we wanted in a single day on this tour. The waterfall, valleys, and desert were gorgeous. Rachid also is an amazing guide, he is super funny, nice, and flexible with what you want to do on your trip. On top of that, he’s incredibly knowledgeable, after all, he has been doing this for 20 years! I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to do a little bit of everything in a day.

Amazing 8 days tour from Marrakech to Merzouga!

We booked an 8 day tour from Marrakech to Merzouga with Over Morocco Tours and couldn't have been happier. After reaching out to several companies asking for a proposed itinerary and budget, Mohammed was without a doubt the most professional and flexible. It made the organization of the trip very smooth from the start. During the tour, we were very lucky to have Hassan as our guide and Dris as our driver, both of who were amazing. We had a great time traveling with them and felt we were in safe hands at all times. From knowing where exactly to stop for the best views/experiences to the quality of the accommodations they booked for us, the whole trip was an unforgettable experience. It was a pleasure to share that time with them.
