Looking for not too $$$ small group tour of Morocco

Hello! My Mom and I are going to Morocco in March and are looking for suggestions for a tour where there is a medium sized group to travel with. Are there any tour companies out there where you can travel with a guide plus say 6-15 people? A small group should help cut costs a bit too for our guide. Our budget is not huge! But we can spend around USD$1,600 each (14,000 dirham) on top of the flight to Morocco. We will likely fly into Marrakesh, though Casablanca is a possibility. And will be there March 12ish to 26th or so.

I have been reading reviews and emailing companies and am finding many private tours for just us and also found a tour where groups of 30 people are mentioned in the reviews, which is too many! We like being in a group though to meet other fun people.

Ideally the tour would leave from Marrakesh, go to the desert to camp under stars, and also Essaouira on the coast. We are also fine with a couple of smaller tours, maybe one 4 day tour to desert, and then going to Essaouira on our own or with another tour. Possibly a tour to Fes too. Not sure yet if we'll have time in 12 days.

Thanks so much in advance for any insight you can give!!! : )

Also, we love nature, art, and meeting the locals and other travelers. Like to buy a few special things, but not spend a ton of time at touristy shops.

we used an agency and were in morocco for 12 nights...fes to the desert, essaioura, and marrakech. we thought that was a good overview of morocco..made us want to go again.

you are lucky to have 12 nights.

we had a guide in fes and marrakech, which we loved, and also walked thru the ziz valley, with a wonderful berber man. we had lunch at his home, after learning about how they grow and produce most of their food. wonderful .
