My tour guide Elhassani made my experience in Morocco one to remember. I eagerly await my next trip and to reconnect with him again as a guide. From arrival to departure, Elhassani personal attention, knowledge, and communication was superb. He accomodated the needs of our group, was patient, and made sure our safety was key on every excursion and interaction with the locals. We got an authentic Moroccan experience and I highly recommend him for your tour needs. He has a wonderful sense of humor and engaging personality to calm apprehensions of traveling in a foreign country. I've traveled many places, and rarely have I given a 5/5 in each category, but Elhassani is serving of such! :)

As a young couple we went for 4 days to Marrakech. We discussed with Sahara Tours International of what we expected from this romantic getaway and they came up with different ideas so that we could choose what suited us most, following their guidance.

In 4 days, we visited the traditionnal/typical Marrakech (with a private guide) as well as the jet-set side of it (recommendations of restaurants'adresses by STI), we ride horses with an astonishing view on the Atlas while staying in a nice Riad of which the prices had been negotiated for us (cheaper than Booking or else). All along, STI agents were really careful that we were happy and accompanied us at will everywhere if needed.

I warmly recommend them as a tour operator in Morocco, particularly for English and French speakers and I will definitively come back to Morocco seeking their advice.

I traveled to Marrakech with a few friends and we did three excursions with STI:

Marrakech full day city tour with lunch
Atlas Mountains trek with lunch
Overnight Sahara camping

The guides were friendly and helpful. Our tour guide (El Hassan i think...) for the full day city tour was the most helpful and knowledgeable. He knew everything about everything - we even mentioned that one of us was in medical school and he really tailored the conversation around this topic and how it applied to Moroccan culture. The included lunch was tasty and generously portioned.

The hiking trek to the village of Armed was our highlight. It was great to get out of the bustling and overwhelming Marrakech for a quick hike and lunch. The fresh air and views were welcomed. The drive out was quick!

The overnight camping in the Sahara was also a great experience. It's not quite as isolated as we hoped, but after a full day of driving each way, it was better that way. If you want a true Sahara ''middle of nowhere'' experience, you're gonna need a lot more than 2d/1n. The local guides upon arrival at the camp (Tauregs) were outgoing and friendly. The dinner at camp was the best we had on the trip.

The transport vehicles were all much better equipped than we expected and quite comfortable.

Overall, very happy we stuck with STI for all three bookings!

We had two experiences with Sahara Tours International: airport transfers (from and to Marrakech airport) as well as the Road to the Kasbahs excursion. The airport transfers were without issue. The drivers were friendly and on time. The Road to the Kasbahs excursion was amazing. It was a long day into the Atlas mountains to see the Ait Ben Haddou kasbah along with a few other kasbahs and stops. The driver did a great job along with windy, curvy mountain roads, and the tour guide (Abdou) did a nice job of explaining what we were seeing (in English and French). The price was much lower than other operators. We felt safe and comfortable the whole time. We would definitely use Sahara Tours International again.

Decided to book three excursions before travelling to Marrakesh as I did not know how easy it would be to arrange them out there and I am so glad I used Sahara Tours.
All three excursions, quad biking, horse-drawn carriage tour and Ouzoud Waterfalls, were superbly organised and the pick up for all three was arranged to suit where the riad was located.
Cannot recommend highly enough, just phone up when you get to Marrakesh and everything was arranged in a few minutes. Transport arrived at the pre-set times, tour guides were very informative and made for stress-free days out.
If you are going to Morocco book some trips with Sahara Tours, you will not be disappointed.
