“Highlight of our trip!”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

My husband and I adored M.T.E's tour into the desert!!!

That's due in huge part to our wonderful tour guide and driver, Joussef. It feels like going on a road trip with a good friend - he really went out of his way to make sure our journey felt easy, effortless and personal. Originally from a Berber village in the desert we were exploring, Joussef introduced us to his mother, brothers, and extended network of Aunties. We were invited to have lunch and tea with them, a wonderful glimpse into Berber life. His mom even made us a special drink to try to help calm our rumbly tummies.

Joussef's English is excellent, and he was able to answer even our most obscure questions, point out things we could never get from a guide book (try and learn the special hand signal for Berber independence!) and introduced to some pretty amazing contemporary African music (a must for a long, desert road trip).

Part of the trip was spent off-roading into the desert, where we really felt like we were the only people for miles and miles. It was a special treat to get to fully experience the silence and remoteness of the landscape.

Riding the camels was delightful, and not just some posed picture - we must have ridden the camels for an hour at sunset into the Erg Chebbi, the magnificent dunes of the Sahara.

Not once were we pushed to buy anything - a huge relief from the tour guides in the cities.

We highly recommend M.T.E. and Joussef for a really personal POV of Morocco.

“Hire a taxi from the street”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Make the tours with a private taxi driver. just find a taxi that is more like a mini van; his car more like a new one, and the cost will be much cheaper than your hotel tour. All drivers know the points of interest and will be glad to take you on tour. We went to the five water falls and climbed up the mountain. It was a great day if not the best.

There is also the hop on hop off tour bus the we take in every city we visit. It is a good ride between the main tourists attractions and you get to see the city in ease.

“Relax and enjoy”
Reviewed October 25, 2013 via mobile

I've found this company on the tripadvisor - my first intuition was that I could trust these people and they didn't disappoint me...
I told Youssef what our idea was and he organized everything for us - they were very flexible to rearrange the whole trip when our luggage were delayed - not to mention the help they provided to get the lost baggage back.
We had a great guide, Abdul - he treated us as family (no exaggeration), took us everywhere, recommended original local places to eat and enjoy, told us interesting stories about everyday life, helped bargaining, but waited patiently when needed... Thanks again, Abdul!
I would choose this company again - they listen to your wishes and make your dream come true - even if that seems impossible :-)

We went on several trips organised through click excursions which were fabulous, first one was to the desert for 2 days & 1 night, so pleased we did have private 4x4 car as wouldn't really want to travel 7 hours in a mini bus with other people, had wonderful driver called Hakim who went out of his way to take us to Ben Hadou where alot of films are made i.e Gladiator & Prince of Persia, then on to where they process the argan oil. Camped in the desert overnight with the Nomads, camel ride was around 2 hours!!
Second trip was to the amazing waterfalls that are over 330 feet high, Mohammed took us around there and as he grew up there was very knowledgable about the area, a real piece of paradise, an absolute must to go to!! even got to see monkeys very close up!! CLICK EXCURSIONS
