Just had the trip of a lifetime. First, our Your Guide Mohamed was amazing. He truly cared about us and our experiences and strived to keep us all happy. Everyone should be as lucky as us to have Mohamed as a guide. And we saw an experienced all aspects of life in Morocco from the marketplace to Sahara Desert. We were engaged at every opportunity from eating hot bread in the market place to riding camels to traditional dancing and music. Every moment was a "wow" moment. Thank you for a top-notch tour and guide.

Absolutely phenomenal! This was our very first group tour and Morocco Vacation Travel exceeded our expectations! We did not expect such phenomenal hotels, restaurants, tour sites, and more. So, thank you to MVT. But most importantly, we can not exclaim enough about Mohammed, our tour manager. He is knowledgeable, kind, organized, understanding, and patient. The perfect representative for MVT.
