A Moroccan Adventure should be on everyone’s Bucket List especially when it is led by Driss Maza. He guided us from Casablanca to Marrakech and all the places in between. Watching the sunrise in the Sahara Dessert was breathtaking as was our Camel ride into the Sahara Dessert in order to sleep under the stars; according to some in our group it was the highlight of the trip. Driss was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about his country and endlessly enthusiastic and very kind and helpful to those in need. I would recommend Driss and his company most highly to any of my friends. Would love to revisit Morocco one day!
