Excellent experience in Morocco During the last months, I’ve been visiting Morocco quite often with groups. The experience, organisation, structures, activities as well as the support provided before, during and after the trip let us have an amazing experience. Drivers are always so skilled, professional and kind: worth-mentioning is especially Mustafa, with whom I travelled twice. Hope to see you soon again!
