5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2013

It was well done, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2012

Positivies: Excellent trip. Hectic and a lot of travel, but efficient and organized, and the best way to visit a country with limited transportation options. Our tour guide was good and kept up on target. 3* Hotel in Marrakech was like a 4*. Negatives: The optional dinner shows are not worth the money (similar shows can be arranged locally for half the price). Fez morning (cultural) tour was really less about culture and going from store to store trying to hard sell fabrics, carpets, and leather goods at inflated prices.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2011

We had a wonderful time and the tour guides were outstanding, the one that pick us up in Spain and the one that took us all over Morocco, Karin. We give them 5 starts. All of the places have something special to see. I would liked an extra day in Marrakech. Also, before the trip it could be helpful more information about what is to see and the whether to be more prepared. But overall we enjoyed very much. It was fantastic Thanks a Million for your great work and the work of your Tour Guides, as I said they are outstanding. Jesus and Elda Garza

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2008

This was an outstanding trip, with the only deficiency being the Sofia hotel in Fez, which should be replaced . The tour guide was excellent and accommodating, we had local guides in three of the cities, and the food was generally quite good. Definitely a good value and excellent itinerary. The commentary was in depth, the bus was comfortable and cool, the driver and coach attendant were very attentive. We had guides who assisted us in shopping, which I believe is necessary in Morocco. Also, we were given a hotel in Marrakesh which actually exceeded the rating of the trip we were on, at no extra charge. I would take this tour again, if a different hotel is substituted for the Sofia.

4 star rating: Recommended March 2015

Good tour well organised and value for money. Hotels were of good standard considering the low season they were well staffed and the meals provided were local produce and very agreeable.Guide spoke English and Spanish local guides were very good as well. Viator outsource to another company to run the tour they were very good. We did not enjoy visiting artisans where there was a sales pitch and possibly a kick back somewhere along the lines. This is usual in this type of tour but a it old hat now. Two of my party were elderly and found the Medina in Fes a little too much walking but that is how the place is built. One of my party needed a Doctor the guide was excellent in looking after this. All in all 1650 Kms maybe just too much for one trip but you are packing in a lot.

4 star rating: Recommended April 2013

Overall a good trip. Need to have a guide in morocco who can speak fluent english. Also, casablanca can probably be eliminated from the itinerary because there is hardly anything worth seeing in that city.

4 star rating: Recommended February 2013

Our tour guide and driver were very pleasant and our local guides were very informative. We enjoyed the sights that we saw, particularly the medina at Fez and Marakesh. There was a lot of time spent in the bus and I would be inclined to alt the itinerary and leave Casablanca off the tour.

4 star rating: Recommended October 2012

There were some definite issues with the bus that interfered with the enjoyment of the tour. Some seats were broken, arm rests were broken, air vents could not turn on or turn off and the cushions were so broken down that you were sitting on a bar. If I had it to do over again, I would select a tour that skipped Casablanca - not much benefit from the overnight there. I would also skip Marrakech as the market is much better in Fez and there was a lot of driving to get the group down to Marrakech and back again. Had a great time in Fez. We went to the extra dinner in Fez and that was good and was fun. We also went to the extra dinner in Marrakech - we did not feel it was a particularly god use of our time - plus it was very cold so you need to take a warm jacket if you go). Would recommend a shorter tour to Fez.

4 star rating: Recommended October 2012

Overall the tour was really great although a lot of time spent moving around between sites. I would totally recommend it to everyone but be aware that the english speaking tour guide doesn't mean an english tour. It's a spanish tour with an english translation. Some time I felt like we got the super short version of what he said in spanish. Other than that it was awesome and the local guides were terrific and that's when we got split into spanish and english groups
