My husband and I toured Morocco and it was magical. It is a very diverse country. We enjoyed every bit from the culture, the sites, to the food and the weather. The hotel was very clean and the people are very hospitable.
This experience was full. Memphis Tours did so well in planning the trip, organizing the transportation and the accomodation. The service was great. And Morocco is very beautiful, we really had a great time there.
My bestfriend and I had great time in Morocco. We were welcomed and picked up at the airport then transfered to the hotel. The first day we rested and then we strated our tour. We loved the culture and the guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.
We had a great trip that was beyond our expectations. The food was the best we have ever had on a trip or any where else! The Guides were very knowledgeable and concerned about us and our needs.
