I did the exotic Morocco tour and it was amazing. I would definitely do another tour with Travel Talk.

The tour was very well organized. Our tour guide Abdul is one of the nicest person I ever met. Favourite part of the trip was the Sahara desert. In the 10 days we got to see the best of Morocco. Every city is unique with rich history. The local tour guides were very informative and friendly. During the trip we got to see the Rif Mountains, High Atlas Mountains, Middle Atlas Mountains, and Anti Atlas Mountains. I truly enjoyed the dinner show in Fez and 4x 4 Jeep safari in Merzouga.

I have already recommended travel talk to few of my friends.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Morocco and fell in love with the country as a result of everything seen on this tour. However, what made the tour outstanding was our guide, Abdul, and our bus driver, Mohammed. They were both so friendly and welcoming, keen to help us in any way they could. Abdul was always positive and treated everyone on the tour so well. He answered all our questions on Morocco and helped us whenever we had an issue. Mohammed always kept the bus in spotless condition and often offered us fruit! It was a pleasure to see Morocco accompanied by them.
