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!

Great experience! After a lot of research, we contacted Hassan for a 5-day desert trip with Best Morocco Travel and he was on time to respond to all our requests. From Marrakesh to the Sahara desert, the experience was impeccable. The well-planned itinerary, comfortable accommodation, and transportation provided by his agency deserves 5 stars. Our guide Hassan’s experience, knowledge and friendly behavior made it a perfect and unforgettable trip. I highly recommend traveling to Morocco for an amazing trip with Best Morocco Travel company.

Inesquecível!! Éramos seis amigas na nossa inesquecível viagem ao Marrocos, e nosso guia/motorista Hassan foi muito atencioso e prestativo, sempre pontual e pronto para atender às nossas solicitações. Excelente motorista, nos sentimos seguras durante toda a viagem. Van confortável e com wi-fi. Recomendo muito os seus serviços.

An Outstanding Cultural Tour I just completed a multiday tour with Hassan from Best Morocco Travel as my guide. Safely driving his comfortable vehicle while playing wonderful Moroccan music on his sound system, Hassan took me to many memorable destinations. He knows his country. He’s a bright young man with plenty of energy. His English language skills are impressive. If you’re fortunate to have Hassan as your guide, he will take great care of you. Hassan is THE guide to have when visiting Morocco. I recommend him without hesitation.
