Simon asked 1 year ago

Hi there,

I'm interested in booking a 9-day tour in Morocco that starts in Marrakech and includes visits to the Sahara Desert and the Blue City. Can you provide me with some more information on your tour options and pricing? I'm looking to travel in 06/10, and my budget is around 3000euro.

Thanks, and I look forward to hearing back from you.

Best regards, Simon
