    Great Tour

    We had an absolute great time and everything went off without a hitch. It was amazing how much if Morocco we actually covered. It’s such an amazing country. Ali (our tour guide) was great. He was very patient the whole time and truly worked with us. We had little kids in our group and he was very friendly and flexible. Highly recommend them (Atlas Excursion). The vehicle was great and reliable. The accommodations did not disappoint at all. They were always punctual. Highly recommend them, especially the desert camp. Hope to come back to Morocco and have more time to explore more and more! Thanks Ali and Atlas Excursion for any amazing experience
