Lunches on the way
The trip was well organized and delivered on everything it promised, although the wan could have had a little more leg room for the long 3 day trip. However,Mohammad ,the driver was great.
Being 3 days on the road through Maroc (from Marrakesh to Fes), you get to discover a different side of the country: nice places, istorical landmarks, kind people and unique experiences. Our driver Simo was very nice and always giving details about the place or the culture. The night spent in Sahara was also very interesting. The organizing team also did a fire in the camp and played local music. A must do while in Maroc.
