Mayra Gummich –
We had a wonderful trip.
So much to see and very interesting.
Or driver, Abdou, was great–knowledgeable, fun to be with and a very save driver.
The hotels were very nice–stayed in both hotels and riads.
The food was very good and plentiful (sometimes too plentiful).
We always felt safe while traveling around the country and people everywhere were very friendly.
We would highly recommend Go Marrakech Desert Trips.
