Serviço muito bom! We chartered a bus with them. We traveled through Tanger, Fes, Casablanca and Marrakech. I requested a driver who spoke Spanish or Portuguese. as they didn't have one, they sent an accompanying guide who spoke Spanish. A very polite guy and in each town they hired local guides.
Very good service!
We would like to highly recommend Morocco Holiday Packages with whom we did a 10 day trip to Morocco at the end of October 2021.
We made the... read more connection to the company after checking the website for the traveler in Israel, and after receiving a (fair) quote and a detailed and serious travel plan from Mr. Mohammed, one of the owners. The plan included Morocco's main sites and gave an option to stay in two categories in hotels (more expensive) or riads, which was the more correct and authentic option for us.
Muhammad was available, attentive and willing for help before and during the trip. He built the route according to our interests – 2 young Israelis, who love nature, landscapes, people and good food.
The itinerary included all the major places in Morocco and gave us a desire for a deeper follow-up tour of this amazing and special country.
MARRAKECH - HIGH ATLAS - AIT BEN HADDOU - ROSES VALLEY - DADES GORGES- TODRA GORGES – MERZOUGA- FÈS - CHEFCHAOUEN- TANGIER - RABAT
Despite the fear of paying the full amount of money for the trip up front, Mohammed gave us the feeling that we were in good hands and that the result would eventually be to our satisfaction. Every question or request had a quick and efficient answer and we felt that there was someone accompanying us and doing everything possible to make us satisfied and that we would miss nothing.
Muhammad was waiting for us in the field with Muha (short for Muhammad) who was our driver and guide during the trip. He turned out to be an asset to the trip. From the first moment, Muha did everything possible to adapt the route to our desires, cravings and tastes. except to be a careful driver who knows the ways well, explained to us her protest of the country, Moroccan culture, people, religion, culinary politics and more. Muha helped us meet with the locals, the language gaps and recommended us where to travel and visit in the free time. The atmosphere for the entire duration of the trip became an integral part of our experience. Played us Moroccan music during the long trips (and at the same time heard Israeli music), ate with us in local restaurants (which are very different from the tourist restaurants that usually everyone stops at to "keep" the guests' stomachs) and sat down with us for long conversations about life on the available evenings in hotels.
It was a unique and special experience with a unique person / driver / guide. Thanks to him the unique trip to this special country has become an unforgettable experience.
We highly recommend a trip to Morocco. A beautiful, special, very safe country with super nice people and excellent food. Morocco Holiday Packages, Mohammed and Moha certainly gave us the opportunity to enjoy the maximum form this short visit.
We had a wonderful 8 days and seven nights in Morroco. Our trip planner, Mohammed was a pleasure to work with, helpful at every step and even came to see... read more us in Marrakech at the end of our trip. Rachid our driver was with us throughout the trip and took excellent care of us. He was helpful and attentive. all the guides we had on the trip were wonderful. Morroco is a beautiful country, I would 100 percent recommend it and also the travel agency.
We had a great day out. Adnan was very informative and pleasant, considerate and made you feel safe and secure in the day and schedule. Once arriving at the waterfalls... read more a guide then takes over for the experience. Adnan is a legend!
We went to the desert tour with driver Adnan.
Long drive but it was comfortable and great fun!
He could manage to get us some beers and ice, so we... read more had ice cold beer at very hot desert,So good.
He is very helpful.
A friend referred us to Morocco Holiday Packages, and they did not disappoint. Thank you for an amazing 4 day tour of the Sahara Desert! We were picked up in... read more Fes, headed toward the Sahara Desert and were dropped off at our accommodations in Marrakech. The communication with Mohamed was excellent, he provided lots of information and was very responsive.
We were picked up by Youssef (our guide) in Fes in the morning and began our journey to the Desert. Youssef was very polite and a safe driver. We made several stops for panoramic photo opportunities along the way as well. Once arriving to the desert we were passed over to our desert tour guides who were equally as friendly. We spent a wonderful night in a luxury desert camp with our own private bathroom in our tent!
The next morning we were picked up on time and had a tour in Merzouga. We were then dropped off at a desert hotel after lunch with the rest of the day to ourselves.
Day 3 and 4 were days of driving with many site-seeing stops along the way to Marrakech. This included the Todgha River, and Ait Benhaddou.
The trip could also be done in 3 days, you would just lose the rest day after your night in the desert. If you plan on staying up late to enjoy the stars in the desert and waking up early for the sunrise you could easily use day 2 for rest and recovery by your hotel pool!
After being dropped off in Marrakech our guide arranged for our bags to be wheeled by trolly right to our Riad (as cars are not allowed into the Medina where we stayed). As we thought our tour had ended at this point, I was surprised to receive and e-mail from Mohamed where he offered an additional service (at no charge) to drop us off to either the train station or airport on our last day of Marrakech to our next destination.
Morocco Holiday Packages displayed excellent customer service and we would highly recommend booking with them.
We a family of five had our trip from Marrakech to Merzouga desert camps and got the chance to experience every bit of the tour at Ait Benhadoud, Dades Valley,... read more Ourzazat and the best part was stay at Merzouga desert camp with camel ride and starry night. Our guide and driver Mr. Mohamed was the best company we had during our visit. He briefed us everything we visited and he knew where we had to stop for rest or lunch or having pictures. Also had the chance to visit a local berber village. Last day was bit hectic as we had to to travel all the way from Merzouga to Marrakech so I would recommend to have a break journey of one night at Ourzazat, especially when you are with kids.
Always keep a warm clothing especially when you pass through Atlas mountains and if you need to visit Dades Valley.
Our overall experience was superb and we highly recommend this tourist operating company for their professional services.
Thank you so much to Morocco Holiday package tours for a once in a lifetime magical Sahara desert experience. Our journey from Marrakesh to Dades and to our luxury camp... read more in Merzouga/ Erg Chebbi was comfortable and hassle free with as many stops for photos and coffee breaks as we so chose along the way. For a little extra, it was worth not having to be stuck in a cramped and crowded tour bus for hours on the winding roads of the Atlas Mountains. Rachid was an excellent guide who took us to amazing Kasbahs, Berber villages, cafes, shops and restaurants. Our journey by camel to the camp at twilight in the Sahara was like something out of a movie. A cosy carpet lined tent with plush comfortable beds, a private bathroom/shower with wonderful aromas of musk and exotic scents. As a bonus, we had a personal showing of authentic handmade Moroccon rugs down a hidden corner of a small village and a lovely meal at a nomad camp. We highly recommend Moroccon holiday packages for a truly amazing Moroccon tour. Thank you Mohamed and Rachid!
