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!:-)
He estado en Marruecos en 4 ocasiones, y quería enseñar este maravilloso país a mis padres. La gente de AfricaAventuras preparó el viaje perfecto. La ruta muy bien elegida, los hoteles fantásticos, el desierto inolvidable... y siempre tratados como de la familia por Youness, Yussef y Luis. Moltes gràcies per tot. Fins aviat!
