It may be just my expectation problem since the operator received almost all 5 stars rating on TripAdvisor. I had a 3 days tour with Morocco Expert tour this past March. It started in Marrakesh for 3 days. It's not their fault but the 3 days tour is extremely rushed. Most of the

Response from IBouyecho, General Manager at 3 Day Marrakech Desert Tour
Responded 21 Mar. 2019
Hi Jen; Thank you so much for taking time to write about your trip experience with us and sharing your feeling about it with us on your review, which was really surprising after a while of time, after we asked you about your trip and you said you enjoyed and everything went fine. As part of your trip, we have informed of how long drive it takes to do 3 days and not only you that we have recommended 4 days desert tour over 3 Days, because 3 days is too rushed and would consume you a lot of time in the car, and for sure we have convinced you with that you did 4 days trip with us, not 3 days and that was 17th March 2018 ends 20 April, as it was from Marrakech and ends in Fes, Anyway; you toured with Hamid as one of our team which you can read all others comments about him and their personal experiences with him, as for sure we leave our customers to have their space and enjoy their lunch, our driver can not approach you as a solo Female Traveller, because he should respect and give you, your own space, as the waiters and the restaurants staff can sometimes help as well while the driver is taking lunch around you. Anyway; if you asked him it would not hurt, as we never push ourselves on someone, as it can be opposite sometimes what you say, as we always wait our customers requests for anything they want to do on their trip that was not as part of his job or part of the tour. The driver we have provided you was a driver and guide, as you did not have any sightseeing sites other than ait benhaddou on that route, as Fes or Marrakech where locals guides works he was not with you because you were not with us on the tour, as our tour ends in Fes. Thank you so much again, and sure you are more than welcome anytime, as our driver never asked you to promote our business, because it's a free choice for a customer to share their feedback, as we asked you via emails just for feedback about your trip, there is no pushing or anything to write anything with us, why would we push you to write an average review, or whatever your experience with us, but if it was an Excellent and exceeded your expectations at that time we could ask a favour to support us with recommendations and spread the word. Thank you so much Jin, and sorry about your trip downsides, you are always welcome home .
