INOLVIDABLE 🤍 Experiencia inolvidable y muy recomendable. Hicimos un tour durante 6 días por varios lugares, saliendo desde Marrakech y visitando el desierto de de Merzouga. Nos acompañó Said, un gran guía, conductor y compañero de viaje. Incluso un buen fotógrafo! 😉 Realmente, estuvimos muy a gusto con él y nos enseñó y mostró un poco de su cultura y los mejores rincones de la zona. Visitamos los diferentes valles por los que transcurría nuestra ruta tan diversa: palmerales, ríos, kasbahs, pueblos y mercados. Nos lo pasamos genial! ☺️ Sin duda, será nuestro guía para la próxima visita a Marruecos. Nos queda pendiente aprender a tocar las palmas como un buen bereber! 😁 Gracias Said y Moha por todo! Un abrazo, Ester y Miguel…

An unforgettable visit to Morocco This was an amazing experience! I went with my friends and was able to live a small part of Moroccan culture with people who live there, who are very friendly and welcoming. The tour guides within Fez and Marrakech were very knowledgeable, and Moha, our principal guide prepared for us a unforgettable visit to Morocco. The view of the neverending desert, the delicious taste of the food, the nice smells of their natural oils, the orange-green contrast from the trees and mountains were impressive. But the highlight for me was how special people were.…
