Fodors travel book led us to Cherg Expeditions who arranged a customized itinerary based on our time frame and interests; 10 days with some hiking, desert camping, and major sites. The price was very reasonable, and a great value for the cost. Our driver/local guide Cherif was with us the entire trip and made sure that our needs were met and was flexible with the schedule to assure the best experience for us. We had dietary restriction, and Cherg / Cherif made sure that all the meals were accommodating in a country where vegetarian is not common. Cherg's recommendations and accommodations were spot on, and the overall experience was a trip of a lifetime!

This was our first time using Cherg Expeditions, and I can confidently say that we will be using their services next time we visit Morocco!!! As a non-moroccan, I truly believe it is essential for all travelers to use this service in order to be satisfied with their Moroccan travel experience. The owner of the company, Bren, planned our travels from start to finish leaving no detail untouched. She helped book flights, secured seat upgrades, coordinated transport for our entire trip, sent copious information about what to expect and how we should plan for our trip, and she secured us the best lodging throughout Morocco based on our budget and desired experience. She went above and beyond, even visiting several of our hotels/Riads ahead of time to make absolutely sure that we had a reservation and that all would go smoothly for us upon our arrival. My husband & I decided to have our wedding while in Morocco, and Bren enthusiastically became my "wedding planner" in a sense by helping to arrange every detail of my wedding day--including an unforgettable camel trek excursion, and gorgeous henna & relaxing spa day. She provided education about safety, sanitation ,and health while traveling abroad. She provided contact info for the company in case we needed to contact her at any hour of the day. We took our trip to Morocco while the country was still under a curfew due to COVID, but we never felt unsafe because our driver & tour guides always wore a mask & we all participated in temperature screenings every morning. Also, we enjoyed seeing Morocco while there were less tourists around because we never waited in lines and we received even more personal attention & care from our hotel/riad employees. We were treated like royalty throughout our stay, and we would recommend taking your trip to Morocco now while tourism is low. Regardless of when you want to visit Morocco, make sure to use Cherg Expeditions for all of your planning needs!

What an amazing experience! We were expertly guided all along the way by the staff of Cherg Expeditions as we toured this area of Morocco. The busy market of Marrakech was contrasted by the tranquil Jardin Majorelle, and then the drive southeast gave us stunning views of the High Atlas, a visit of a salt mine, a tour of an abandoned casbah, and even a hike to waterfall!
Once in M'hamid, we became fully immersed in the desert culture, enjoying lunch in a private home, a night in a camp and then an amazing overnight trek into the dunes. We ate great food (and drank delicious mint tea!) everywhere we went, thanks to our very knowledgeable guides.
Our Moroccan experience, thanks to Cherg Expeditions, could not have been better and I highly recommend them to anyone wanting explore this area of Morocco.

The three-day Desert and Mountains excursion we booked with Cherg Expeditions starting from Ouarzazate turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip. It packed all the landmarks of southern Morocco including the most scenic kasbahs, the Todra Gorge, the magnificent landscapes along the Valley of Roses and the dunes of Merzouga / Erg Chebbi. It was a good balance between guided visits, nature walks and some pretty significant driving. Our driver Chérif was very personable, professional and super knowledgeable. He went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and was always open to questions and requests. The luxury camp in Erg Chebbi was really memorable, giving us a dreamy taste of the desert. The tent accommodations were beautiful and way more comfortable than we expected, and the desert feast and campfire music helped us make special memories. Again the staff was super attentive. Thank you Cherg Expeditions for a wonderful experience! We look forward to working with you again next time we travel to Morocco.

My wife and I used Cherg for our honeymoon. We had never been to Morocco, don't speak a lick of Arabic and had the trip of a lifetime thanks to Cherg and our driver/guide Sharif.

Sharif has helped make the country accessible and familiar. Unlike other tour guides we have encountered Sharif acted solely in our best interests and allowed us to make for an organic relationship with Morocco.

We felt safe, were consistently entertained and had the trip of a lifetime.

This is an excellent company and I highly encourage anyone curious about Morocco to use this company. I hadn't used a guide or even written a TripAdvisor report previously. Let that be a testament to the great service offered by this team.

Additional shout outs to Mohammad, our tour guide in Marrakesh. He was simply excellent & informative as well.

I have nothing but positive takeaways after my trip with Cherg. A friend and I recently returned from their 3 day option, Atlas Sahara, and had the time of our lives. Cherg pays such close attention to detail and focuses on providing a real, cultural experience. Though the trip was only 3 days, each day was jam packed with breathtaking stops and activities that perfectly broke up the driving. I feel almost as if I experienced the whole country of Morocco in those three days. The food was great, too—I ate the best that I did my whole time in Morocco. Our driver, Cherif, was a rockstar! He was exceedingly knowledgeable, kind, helpful, willing, and fun, and he made us feel safe. He spoke our language, too, which is more to be said than some of the other guides we ran into along the way. Cherif really made the trip.

Communication with Cherg was effortless and smooth. Pickups and drop-offs were seamlessly coordinated, and Bren was always available to answer any questions I might have had. I felt taken care of and genuinely liked, not simply like just another paying customer, a feeling I have experienced with other tour companies elsewhere.

Looking forward to hopefully one day experiencing a longer trip with Cherg in Morocco!

I cannot say enough good things about Cherg. The day we were traveling to Morocco we received a WhatsApp message from Bren with all the info we needed to start our trip. She was easy to communicate with and answered any questions we had. Our driver, Cherif was excellent, he was always early to pick us up and was always friendly and helpful. Our tour guide, Abdel, absolutely made our trip. He was extremely knowledgeable and was a pleasure to spend time with. We learned so much and had an absolute blast with all of the excursions they mapped out for us. We really feel like we were able to experience Marrakech on a more intimate level because of Abdel’s knowledge. Thank you so much Bren, Cherif, and Abdel for making our trip so memorable!

We had a guided tour from Marrakech to Telouet, Ait-ben-Haddoun, M'Hamid el Ghislane and Chigaga. Everything was very well planned, our guide (Charif) was a very very nice person, it has been an unforgettable experience for all of us (a family with two children of 14 and 17).

We spent three wonderful days through the mountains, the palm valleys and the desert. Everything was perfectly organized and even in the Sahara we found every comfort, and both the owner of the agency and our guide were very kind. We totally recommend Cherg!
