We were greeted by our professional and friendly driver, Hassan at Casablanca Airport, and once we were settled in a comfortable car. We were 4 friends and we went on an 7 days adventure from Casablanca, we bonded with Hassan as if he was a member of our group. He was friendly, caring, and check every detail. We could ask eny question about Morocco and he was always able to give satisfied answers. we enjoyed learning about morocco's culture and history. We visited Meknes, Fez, the Desert, and Marrakech. The journey was wonderful and can’t comment about how the great Hassan was. Also, the hotels they booked for us were up to our expectations, the camps also were great. Indeed, I dont always feel safe when other people are driving. Hassan was a good driver, he was not impatient or aggressive. It was very comfortable trip and you could tell Hassan was comfortable in the vehicle and made our trip fun and knew a lot about the history of each place we were at. Thanks Morocco Travel for such a great experience.
