The Excursion in Morocco agency was always very helpful. From the initial planning, done by email, passing through the reception in Ouarzazare, and all other cities visited. The staff was always very attentive, punctual and ready to solve any problem. we didn’t have to worry about anything during the tour as the guides thought about every detail. The tour was completely safe and well organized. Thanks to everyone I had meet, and I really recommend Excursion in Morocco.
