“Incredible day with an exceptional guide!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

My friend and I did a trip with Omar to Aït Benhaddou today, and we had the most spectacular experience - perhaps the best day of our Moroccan experience so far (and we've been here for two weeks)! Our guide went above and beyond what was expected of him, and at the end of our 10 hour day trip, when we were all tired, he stopped to buy us prickly pears (on him) from a vendor because he felt guilty that his energy was wearing thin. Contrarily, we found him wonderfully insightful and energetic all the way through, despite it being Ramadan and, in quite warm weather, he'd refrained from eating and drinking all day without a single complaint.

He bought us water too, and we saw parts of the countryside and sights we would not have otherwise had opportunity to see, all of which were so picturesque and rich in history. A truly unbelievable experience, riding in style in an SUV with moroccan carpets beneath our feet, eating a delicious lunch at a restaurant after our tour of the incredible town where various films have been shot, and all for a more than reasonable price. The rolling hills, the desert, the kasbahs, the afternoon mint tea - it is a royal Moroccan experience in and of itself, and with a guide as friendly, warm, and welcoming as Omar, we highly recommend this trip.

Thank you for a day to remember and cherish!

“Unforgettable experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I went to morocco for our honeymoon and just ended our three night, four day tour from marrakesh to erg chebbi. We aren't the type to travel first class, and we are typically very budget conscience. However, given that this was our honeymoon we decided to do the luxury tour. Our guide Omar was amazing and the amazing reviews about him that we read prior were all true! He was so great at explaining everything along the way and went out of his way to make our trip special since it was our honeymoon. He even asked the various hotels we were booked to stay at for upgrades!

We were truly impressed with Omar as it was not easy for him since Ramadan had started the second day of our trip. That, combined with the heat made for what we were sure was a difficult task. However, he didn't skip a beat and the smile never left his face!

The landscapes we saw along the way were amazing and the hotels that were booked for us were all great! The camel trek into the desert was also an experience of a lifetime. (Interesting note: the luxury desert tents have showers and toilets!)

We had high expectations before the tour and they were all exceeded. The entire trip was very organized and we could not have asked for more!

Thank you Omar and Jaoud for An incredible trip!

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

This was really a once-in-a-lifetime experience! I want to take this opportunity to stress in particular how great our guide, Abdullah, was!


We went on the 3D/2N Marrakech to Fes tour. While the tour isn't cheap, it really is a great value for money given everything you see. It seems we traversed almost the whole country, and saw so many great sights! Riding camels in the desert was of course the highlight, but it was all spectacular. We were also able to save some money by having 2 other people join our tour.

But to focus on Abdullah: He is, without a doubt, the best guide we've had for any activity or tour. He was so knowledgeable and took such good care of us. He was always able to get deals for us, answer questions, and above all, went the extra mile to help us feel safe and enjoy our trip. Thank you, Abdullah!

“Majestic Moroccan Adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

I traveled with Abdellah in May 2014, during the Marrakesh to Fes (4 days, 3 nights) tour, as a lone female adventurer. Abdellah was able to ease my apprehensions about traveling on my own in a foreign country. He is a knowledgeable and respectful man who made my stay in Morocco all the more memorable.

My only regret is not having more time to enjoy all that Morocco has to offer!

“Best Money Ever Spent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

My girlfriend and I hired Authentic Tours Marrakech to take us on a 3 day, 2 night tour through central Morocco. The second night in Erg Chebbi, we stayed in a tent in an oasis in the desert. This tour was, without a doubt, the highlight of our trip. You get to see so much more of the country than just the big cities, eat good food, and the camel rides into and out of the desert are a once in a lifetime experience. Our guide, Hussein, was incredibly kind and helpful.

If you do the desert tour, make sure to choose to ride the camels back at sunrise. The views over the sand dunes are breathtaking! And given all that you do on this trip, it's actually a pretty cheap price!
