An amazing memorable trip to Morrocco. Need no other word to review/comment for this trip. Only one word, awesome is good enough to spell out everything.
We used him for our business to take guest on excursions and provide transportation. We have found him very punctual, all the drivers are very friendly and the organization is extremely professional. Highly recommended.
Went on a 4 day tour with Sahara luxury tours from Marrakesh to the Desert. He was super helpful, answering all of our questions and pointing out cool things to look at/do! The hotels he booked were lovely, and the highlight of the trip was camping out in the Desert under the stars.
