Our trip to Morocco Kasbahs and Deserts was excellent. I told our wonderful tour guide Mohammed that I learned more on this tour than on any other trip. Traveling in Morocco was a portal to a very new, interesting, and exotic country for me. I loved being introduced to the different cultures and people of the country. The camel ride was a very special highlight of the tour!
