    We visited Morocco last year and me with one of the representatives of Africa Adventures Yunes by chance. He offered to help us and we were a bit reluctant at first. I must say I am so glad that we took up his offer as a guide. He was brilliant, he took us to see places we would never have gone to in Morocco. I would highly recommend him.

    Quando parti para Marrocos fui sem programa definido. Até que um azar se converteu numa descoberta. Um problema mecânico fez com que me cruzasse com o Yunes. Foram uns dias especiais, sempre bem acompanhado por este irmão do deserto. A atenção e o cuidado dispensados são uma constante. Obrigado por uns dias tão especiais! Até breve!:-)

    Durnate la primera semana de Enero realice uno de los mejores viajes de mi vida; Marruecos. Y fue por ser un lugar maravilloso, por supuesto. pero también por la gente tan amable que encontré allí. Africa Aventuras fue la agencia que contraté. Yunes se hizo cargo absolutamente de todo su agencia fue estupenda. desde el momento de salir de , hasta ves y todo el valle, Yunes y su equipo estuvieron pendientes de cada situación. Durante el trayecto en Carro, Hassan , el conductor del carro fue increhible: es un tipo demasiado respetuoso que siempre quiere que uno este bien. después encontramos a Yunes y estaba pendiente de todo. Después Yunes se encargo de conseguirme transporte hacia fes y me contacto con un gran amigo suyo quien me atendió en su hotel. Desues de marrackech estuvimos en el Valle del Dra e hicismos el paseo en dromedario y la dormida en el desierto. el trayecto en carro fue increíble; bastante comodo pues el carro era excelente y cada restaurante y sitio que parábamos fue perfecto, no hubo problema con ninguno. en radiad fue un gran viaje. yo diría que el mejor, y concluyo diciendo no solo por el sition sino por el servicio de Africa Aventuras. ellos hicieron el paseo increhible. Aconsejo 100% esta compañía para quien quiera viajar a Marrueos. Yunes es un gran tipo que sabe como estar pendiente de las personas y aconsejarlas para que tengan el mejor viaje posible.
