Reviews about our 5 days in Morocco tour from Fes

FANTASTIC! We spent a 5 days tour satrting from Fes and ending it in Marrakech, traveling throughout most of Morocco. With Rachid as our amiable driver and tour guide, we had the nicest time. We are happy with the services and would undoubtedly use Holidays in Morocco again.

AMAZING 5 DAYS IN MOROCCO. My family and I finally decided to visit Morocco and we booked a 5-day tour from Fes to Marrakech via the Sahara desert with Holidays in Morocco; it was the best thing we did, as we got to see the beauty of Morocco, rode camels, took a million photos and had lots of fun thanks to our kind and friendly driver Rachid who was super helpful all along.
