4 Day Tour Fes to Marrakech

Couple Traveller

My husband and I booked a private 4-day tour of Morocco with EIM starting in Fes. We just got home and continue to talk about how amazing the trip was. The communication with EIM was excellent. Very fast responses and they are very accommodating. Our tour was nonstop which was okay by us as we wanted to see all the sights in 4 days. We spent the first two nights in Merzouga Desert. My husband and I agree that our guide Ibraham and our driver hassan are our favorite of the trip. We really felt like they went above and beyond for us during those 4 days. Highly recommend them! We then went to Todra & Dades gorges, Ouarzazate and the beautiful kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou.
