Our family of 4 recently returned from a 12-day trip around Morocco with Exotic Morocco Tours. The trip started off and ended in Casablanca, with stops in Rabat, Chefchaouen, Meknes/Volubilis, Fes, the Sahara desert, Dades Valley, Marrakesh and Essaouira. We found the agency through Google and friends and planned the trip with Ayoub via email. He was flexible, responsive and helpful with suggestions.
Said picked us up at the Casablanca airport in a Toyota 4×4 and was our personal driver/guide throughout the trip. Car was clean, in great condition and gave us no problems throughout the trip. Said was an excellent host – he was always cheerful, very patient, kind and accommodating to our requests. Local guides were also arranged to show us around at more remarkable tourist sites/cities. The guides were a bit of a mixed bag – most were good to excellent, one or two were okay or not as good. The riads we stayed at were all great, feel free to ask Ayoub for recommendations.
We had wonderful family holiday in Morocco thanks to Ayoub and Said, and would highly recommend them to others looking to do a similar trip.

When we started our journey we hardly knew what was in store for us. Starting from Casablanca, through the blue city Chefchaoun , the maze city Fez, Midlt , camel ride in Merzouga making us fall in love once again under the star lit sky waking up in the desert to see the sun rise , the walk through the Rose Valley, the tranquility of the kasbahs in Ait Ben Hadou, crossing the Atlas mountains and trekking in Imlil – a place no less than heaven we reached the red city Marrakech. Exotic Morocco tours made us go through the most enjoyable excursion in our life. Needless to say about the organisation capabilities the whole trip had been tailored to make it enjoyable for the different age groups. I would definitely recommend exotic morocco tours to all those in search of pleasure and tranquility.

Didn’t know what to expect from this trip but I got more than I asked for. Had the most unforgettable experience and beyond expectations. Each city in Morocco had its own character and the difference in their way of life.
My two girls and I went on a 5 days tour from Marrakech – Sahara Desert – Fez – Chefchaouen and finishing off at Tangier. We got pick up at our hotel by our tour guide Ayoub and direct us to our 4×4 SUV to meet our driver Moha . Ayoub organised our entire trip from start to finish and was very knowledge of the Moroccan/Berber culture, hence making sure we had a traditional experience into their world. Comfortable accommodation ranging from hotels, berber camps and riads. He took us to a lot of local places (i.e. traditional buy and sell market which opens on specific days) and ensure we tasted a variety of local food. Moha’s driving skill is superb and his ability to stay awake over the long haul is amazing.
Our overnight in Sahara Desert was an unforgettable moment. We got to know Ayoub and Moha better through bonding by the campfire in the Desert and became closer more like friends travelling together. Both of them sure know how to have a good time and are great conversationalist. Definitely the best duo in town and kept us entertained during our trip. Throughout the trip they make sure we settle in well, was very flexible to our needs, helped us with our luggage and acted as our body guard in need. Ayoub and Moha also gave us tips in bargaining so we don’t get ripped off.
We enjoyed ourselves touring with the duo.

I was feeling unstable when I booked this tour at beginning, but the trip told me that the worry was superfluous ! I and my two friends, we are all highly satisfied with the driver and helps from the team. although we selected standard economical hotels, we got electricity, tap water, and toilets even shower facilities in the camp of dessert! This team is highly recommended !

We decided to book with Exotic Morocco Tours for our two week exploration of Morocco. We spent 14 days traveling around the country, seeing the absolute best that Morocco has to offer. From the start, when I inquired about our travel, Ayoub was super helpful in arranging everything. He always responded very quickly to emails and was easy to correspond with the entire time, making sure that we were getting exactly what we had in mind for our trip. Even when I arrived and got delayed in the airport, I reached out to Ayoub and he was quick to calm my worries and make us feel comfortable before we even stepped out of the airport. As if Ayoub hadn’t already impressed us enough, our tour guide Said made our 2 week adventure even better. He was always very prompt, made sure we always had what we needed, answered any questions we had along the way, provided advice along the way that helped make our experience the very best, and of course kept us safe as we traveled from Casablanca to Rabat, to Chefchaouen, to Fes, to the Sahara, to Essouira, and finally to Marrakech. It was like we were traveling with a friend, which made the experience all the more fun and comfortable the entire time. Not to mention, Said is well versed in several languages, which makes him that much more approachable and capable of connecting with people from around the world. I think its not only impressive, but a huge asset for travelers who come from different places around the world. All in all, Exotic Morocco Tours, especially Said as our guide, made our Morocco adventure outstanding and my favorite travel experience yet. I did a lot of research before booking and I have no doubt in my mind that these are the best guys to see Morocco with. If you are debating about booking, DO IT! You won’t regret. Thanks guys for the trip of a lifetime!

My husband, adult son and I traveled with Ayoub during Ramadan throughout Morroco. The trip was an amazing once in a lifetime experience and Ayoub did everything to take care of us. Our happiness and satisfaction was one of his main goals. In fact, Ayoub remained close by while we were bargaining with store keepers to make sure that we were getting a good price. As all the previous reviews stated, the country is gorgeous and full of many adventures. The camel trek and overnight at the desert camp was the highlight of the trip. Ayoub and his brother told wonderful stories under the stars about their lives in their Berber village. They entertained us with songs and instruments and were truly a joy to meet. We followed all EMT’s recommendations for hotels and were astounded by the quality of the accommodations. And the graciousness and hospitality of the Berbers is beautiful.
Exotic Morocco Tours arranged a tour of Marrakesh which was helpful. The souk has amazing things to buy, but after 6 days of being continually pursued by bargaining salesmen, we had not interest in further bargaining in order to purchasing anything. Overall, we were well taken care of and loved the entire tour.

We absolutely loved our trip with Exotic Morocco Tours. we did the 4 days starting in Marakech to the Sahara desert and back. The trip includes a lot of driving but our tour guide Moha made it enjoyable by stopping at sites and also teaching us everything there is to know about the locals. The night in the desert is more than worth the hours of driving it was amazing. The tour was perfectly planned and included great dinners and places to sleep at night. We had our three year old with us and she enjoyed herself as much as we did she loved Moha and called him her best friend the whole way! We always felt taken care of and had the ability to customize the trip the way we wanted based on what we were interested in seeing. I can not say enough good things about this company they took amazing care of us! I recommend them!

We had an amazing trip to Morocco. My family and I had a wonderful time. We saw cities, medinas, desert, gorges, stars (my goodness the stars in the desert), and so many other things. The Moroccan people are so friendly and welcoming. Exotic Morocco tours is very flexible with what you want to see and do and ready and willing to accommodate your needs and desires. It was very easy to enjoy the trip as Siad arranged everything for us. We never had to worry about missing a bus or where to eat. We had a wonderful time and always felt safe. I had no expectations going in, but I really love Morocco now.

My doughter (13) and I (two woman) did the 3 days dessert trip from Marrakech and back. Ayoub was wonderful and helpful throughout all stages of planning the trip. We had a great time travelling with Zaid our very good driver and knowledgeable guide. We went from Marrakech through the high Atlas, the valleys into the dessert and back to Marrakech. It was a real great experience to sleep in the desert and we learned a lot about the Marrocco and people of South Marrocco. We simply enjoyed every second of that amazing trip. Zaid was real fun to be with. We highly recommend this company.
