Nuestro buen amigo YUNES, Alonso del desierto, para sus amigos de Alicante. Un chaval estupendo que se puede confiar con él.
Yunes and Moha were extremely nice and flexible, planning a three day trip for us just as we wanted. They are very friendly and helpful, making as always feel welcome and comfortable. All places we visited were beautiful. We really enjoyed ourselves! We recommend Africa Aventura and would be happy to travel with them again.
Hemos pasado una semana con el equipo de Yunes,y a sido lo mejor del viaje tanto por el confort y la atención que han tenido para que cada parada salga todo a la perfección,despues de tantos kilometros ,tantos paisages y toda la aventura con la versatilidad de haber estado con ellos es mas que aconsejable para conocer a este gran pais.
La verdad es que es dificil destacar algo de nuestro viaje a marruecos porque ahi que ir para descubrir todos los lugares diferentes que puedes encontrar. Toda la hospitalidad y amabilidad de sus gentes. Gracias a todos en especial a Jonas, Hasan etc, etc que hicieron de nuestro viaje una experiencia inolvidable. Por supuesto volveremos. Gracias por todo.
