Amazing 3 Day Desert Tour from MarrakechReviewer: Elena Morales - April 18, 2014
Morocco Excursions Company is one of the best travel agency we've traveled with in Morocco. Excellent food and service. The staff was all friendly and willing to share their experiences with us. It was great to learn new things about the Moroccan and Nomadic lifestyle. The tour of the Atlas Mountains was lovely, we were able to somewhat customize it as we chose where we wanted to go and for how long. As for the camel tour itself, absolutely breathtaking. The dunes made me feel as I was traveling through a postcard and the stars at night were like none I have ever seen before. The camp was wonderful and the staff continued to impress us.
