A Most Amazing and Unforgettable Trips Morocco is one of travel detinations we dreamed for many years. Youssef and his Exploration Trips was recommended by our friend couple who visited the country not long ago. So we and another family scheduled a 11-day trip with him. The accommodation for 11 nights was very nice. Youssef, who is also our tour master was very accommodating and very responsive to our queries and is also very keen on making sure our experience is tailored to our interests. He made sure that all of the places that we visited are the most sought-after and made sure to also shared with us the rich and colorful history of their country. All in all, an unforgettable experience. Highly recommend!!!

A great experience Many thanks to Youssef for organizing a wonderful 3-day Merzouga trip from Marrakech for us. The communication with him was seamless, the payment straight forward and the flexibility unparalleled. What really elevated this was the driver, Ismail: an intimate knowledge of culture, history and geography helps the traveler experience more than the sights, it gives meaning to the trip. Highly recommend!

Amazing adventure with Morocco Exploration Trips and Abdul is the best!! My husband and I consider ourselves “seasoned” travelers and have never considered using a private tour company. Well, we are both blown away by our experience with Morocco Exploration Trips. Every perceived preconception of a “guided tour” was wrong. When I first contacted Youssef, he quickly responded to each question (there were many!) and assured me that we could customize our desert trip. Our driver, Abdul, was very knowledgeable about every question we had. He also was attentive to every detail. If he noticed me covering my shoulder’s he automatically - without asking turned down the air conditioning. We learned so much from Abdul about Moroccan history and its culture. Things that you would miss if you did the trip on your own. The food, lodging, and our guide were all perfect! This trip was one of our favorites thanks to our driver, Abdul or “James” as we kidded with him. We also enjoyed the trip so much that we extended it for another 4 days! Also, I looked at other tour companies but decided on Morocco Exploration Trips due to the reviews, being able to customize your trip, and the value it provided to ensuring every detail was taken care of. Thanks again Youssef and Abdul!

Defintely One of the Most Unforgettable Trips I had Morocco Exploration Trips was recommended by my cousin who visited the country a few years ago. So I and my friends scheduled a holiday last week of March and it is definitely one of the best trips I had outside the United Kingdom. Youssef, who is also our tour master was very accommodating and very responsive to our queries and is also very keen on making sure our experience is tailored to our interests. He made sure that all of the places that we visited are the most sought-after and made sure to also shared with us the rich and colorful history of their country. Even if it was just a couple of days, he made sure that our experience will be memorable and is always willing to answer all of our questions. I will definitely come back to Morocco with more days for a holiday and will make sure to book with Morocco Explorations Trips. They are definitely the best.

2-day Private Tour of Marrakech Morroco Exploration Trips was recommended by my friends who went to Morocco. Youssef was very patient and accommodating as he answered all my queries prior to the trip. For the first day we had a walking day tour of the Médina, Youssef had explained and showed us the amazing places throughout the old city. We learned a lot of people and their colourful culture. Jardin Majorelle and the Afagay Desert was the highlight of the second day which I would definitely recommend you visit. Morocco is such a picturesque country and I definitely recommend Morocco Exploration Trips as they made our short stay meaningful and memorable.

A Dream Vacation in Morocco I have always dreamed of visiting Morocco, and Youseff made my childhood dream come true! I went on an 18-day private tour around Morocco in Jan 2023 with my husband, two-year-old toddler, my parents, and my mother-in-law, who are all in their 70s. No one went crazy, no one got sick, and we all left Morocco extremely happy and fulfilled. If you want a fantastic time in Morocco, go ahead and book your trip with Morocco Exploration Trips. I would give it 100 stars out of 5. The best tour guide and driver on the planet! Pros: - Communication: Communication with Youseff is excellent, from planning the itinerary and budget to when we were in Morocco. Youseff is very responsive and speaks perfect English. - Safety: Youseff put all of our safety at the forefront of everything. He provided a car seat for our toddler free of charge for the entire trip. He kept on telling us to put on our seat belts. He even shielded us from oncoming cars and scooters with his body. Hassan is an excellent driver. He drives smoothly and safely, which is vital to me since we have our baby and elderly parents in the car. - Accommodating: Youseff and Hassan had our trip perfectly planned out. The long car rides never felt that long because we made stops at interesting spots along the way. He was also extremely flexible when we wanted to do something different from the itinerary. - Knowledgeable: Youseff not only planned and managed our trip, but he was also highly informational regarding the history and cultural aspects of where we were and what we saw. It made every place so much more meaningful. I loved how he made me understand the history and meanings of Islam better. Youseff also guided us on what to buy and how much things cost. We didn't get conned or overtly ripped off anywhere! - Quality: We budgeted our accommodations to be mid-range. The hotels and riads Youseff booked for us were all in central locations, had views, and had terrific hot showers. All the restaurants he took us to and recommended were good. I completely trusted his recommendations. - Respectful: Youseff and Hassan were absolute gentlemen. We stayed at over seven hotels, and they never even let me pick up a suitcase. They're both extremely respectful of our space and cultural differences. Youseff is personable, caring, funny, and most of all, he can relate to a 2yr old as well as to a bunch of 70+yr olds. Cons: - None Morocco Explorations Trips delivered and exceeded all of our expectations.

Moroccan Expedition 2022 This was a phenomenal trip. Enjoyed every bit of this expedition. I found it was more than just a tour. I called it an expedition. Not only did we learned about Morocco but we also learned about our guides, driver and their life experiences they shared . It was a cultural exchange both ways, we spoke of Canada and they of Morocco. Life is not that different. Morocco is beautiful, clean and food is great. Our guide Elhoussain Boun did a great job giving us history about Morocco and the towns and city enroutei, our driver Hassan were great. Hassan is an excellant driver, felt very safe in his ability.

Berber Morocco The solitude of the Sahara Desert near Merzouga and the incredible night sky. That being said it is a whirlwind week and M.E.T. has an incredible itinerary, hang on to your hat. I personally also really enjoyed the camel ride to camp, it was exhilarating. Make sure your shoes are well broken in and comfortable and travel light. The nights can be chilly in the desert so layers work. And make sure you have a good camera
