We spent 5 days with Youssef on an express road trip through Morocco, covering Marakkech, Fes, the Sahara, too many beautiful valleys and gorges to count and dips into Casablanca and Rabat. It was our first time to Morocco and having done no research whatsoever, a leap into the unknown.

Youssef was amazing and shared his country and culture with us wholeheartedly. He made us feel safe and comfortable, booked incredible accommodations for us and entertained us so 6 hour journeys flew by!

Would highly recommend Youssef and his team without any hesitation.

I found Tarla Tours on Google, and that's how the journey began! I read the reviews and took a leap of faith by booking with them. It turned out to be the best decision I've ever made. Ahmed was our driver, and Lhousein was our tour guide. Overall, we had a fantastic experience!

Initially, we were a bit disappointed by the switch of guides from Zaid to Lhousein. I hadn't seen any reviews for Lhousein, so I was concerned. However, after spending over 9 days with him, I can confidently say that Lhousein is amazing, and I hope other visitors get to experience his guidance. Ahmed was a wonderful and safe driver, always available to take us wherever we needed to go. We truly appreciate the positive experience we had with Tarla Tours, and we'll definitely recommend them to our friends and family! :)

Special thanks to Youssef, Ahmed, and Lhousein for helping us throughout the trip and making all the necessary reservations!

Mouloud in Marrakech was probably our favorite local tour guide! He was such a positive figure and we truly loved his story and knowledge about the most beautiful city of Marrakech!

My parents and I had a fantastic 9-day tour around Morocco with Tarla Tours (specifically Youssef)! Youssef is knowledgeable, patient, attentive, and flexible based on our needs. The tour itinerary was great & comprehensive— we were able to get a taste of the major highlights of Morocco throughout the 9 days (our favorite was the beautiful Sahara Desert). He was even flexible on what time we could start the day (usually 9am/9:30am vs other tours we’ve attended with extremely early calls times like 7/7:30am). The road trips between locations were comfortable and fun, thanks to Youssef sharing a lot of knowledge about his country as well as his own personal stories! He even recommended excellent local spots for food that my family and I wouldn’t have ever discovered for ourselves. Highly recommend going with Tarla Tours for your adventure around Morocco - Youssef can tailor-fit the itinerary based on your needs and the sights you want to see :) Thanks Youssef for showing us your beautiful country!! Until next time 🙏

Tarla Tours turned our dream of traveling to Morocco into a wonderful reality. We emailed Youssef with our wishlist- where we wanted to go and what we wanted to see. They came back with a proposed itinerary and after a few revisions , we were set and on our way. What we agreed on on paper became more magical because of our most patient, efficient, accommodating driver and guide tandem- Ahmed and Zaid. They were funny, kind, caring even as they were observing Ramadan during our entire trip. They were flexible enough to make some changes on our itinerary along the way. We ended the trip with two new family members. Morocco would not have been as memorable without Zaid, Ahmed and Youssef

We did an amazing 15-day tour of Morocco with Tarla Tours. This tour company is the best. Youssef custom-made the tour according to our liking. From the moment Ahmed (our excellent driver) and Hassan (our wonderful guide) picked us up at Casablanca Airport on Feb 14, 2024, to the time they dropped us off on Feb 28, 2024, at the same airport, they were outstanding. In 15 days, we visited Rabat, Tangier, Chefchaouen, Fes, Marrakesh, Merzouga, and Essaouira, among several other places. We drove through the Atlas mountains, rode camels in the Sahara Desert, and walked through medinas and kasbahs, among other amazing experiences. Accommodations everywhere were 5 star whether at hotels or riads. Immersing ourselves in the Moroccan culture was an integral part of the tour. From sampling Berber pizza to visiting nomads in the desert to having lunch with Ahmed's family in his home, we were delighted to learn a lot about the history and culture of Morocco. I left with a love of the country and its people.

It was the best trip in the world, we had an unforgettable experience. Our guide Youssef is the best guide in the world, he did everything to pamper us and ensure that we did not lack anything.

I waited till I came home after a 6-week long trip overseas to write this review as I wanted to make sure I do it properly; this company and Youssef deserves the time and effort!

Where do I begin? You may have read several reviews of mine claiming that this company and that company has been the best experience and the best tour guide ever. However, after travelling through the world for over 13 years, and visiting 41 countries, experiencing at least 50+ day tours, group escorted tours and private tours, I can confidently say I have NEVER had such an EXCEPTIONAL tour guide/driver and human being than what I found in Youssef. I honestly think I will never have another experience as such or encounter another guide better than Youssef.

Youssef, who is a well-spoken gentleman is first and foremost, an outstanding individual. To have met someone like this was a privilege! I don't say that lightly. My standards are sky-high and you can see a lot of that in my reviews.

Youssef created this wonderful, authentic company more than 10 years ago and the story he tells of how he became interested in this industry is awe-inspiring! He grew up in the desert, raised by Nomadic parents who then settled down in a village by the time he was born. He really does have an amazing and wonderful story. I would have never guessed that Youssef had his roots in the desert because he was such a modern individual, who has totally adapted and evolved to the city life, teaching himself English (and his English is better than some of the folk that live in Sydney, Australia!). He even taught me a thing or two about Technology :) Imagine that - someone who grew up in the desert teaching an 'older' person (still under 40 though!) from Metropolitan Sydney about Instagram!

From the very first contact I had with Youssef after reading so many wonderful reviews, he was absolutely brilliant, professional, courteous, friendly, obliging and accommodating. I had trawled through at least 40 odd Moroccan private tour companies and contacted most if not all of these. I 'test' out everything with each company including their response rates, their flexibility, customer service focus, whether they seemed 'dishonest' (and trying to make me change my plans to suit them and their bottom line), attention to detail, patience, affordability, and authenticity to name a few things. I am highly selective and I ended up with maybe 3 or 4 companies out of this lot. That was my shortlist. In the end I by-passed a couple of shortlisted companies even though they were considerably cheaper than Tarla because of the way Youssef responded to all my requests and I just had a 'good feeling' about him. I utilised my '6th sense' so to speak and I did not get it wrong.

I booked a year in advance and made a special request for Youssef to be my guide. He kept in touch with me throughout the year and always responded efficiently and satisfactorily.

When I arrived, there he was, a friendly fellow with a big smile on his face, on time and 'organised'. I had no idea what to expect at that stage as I was on a 15 day tour and my next 2 weeks and my Moroccan experience was in this man's hands!

His car was impressive and clean, as was his driving technique, pace and he always kept the car spick and span - clean as anything and he made sure the car was always ready for me everyday.

Everyday he was never late - always early, always on time, waiting patiently for me with a warm smile on his face. Never was I rushed. I was admittedly quite late on many mornings and he never made me feel bad about it.

On Day 1, I was already sold. I had specific requirements regarding clean toilets, supermarket visits, water consumption requirements, and even calorie burn requirements. He made sure he remembered all of these very specific requirements that anyone else would have not cared about, or would not be bothered to make sure that I got what I wanted! Every single day, he made sure he took me to wherever I needed to go after the tour, whether that be a special supermarket with gourmet food, supermarkets with specific soft drinks I wanted, special restaurants for dinner, special bakeries and patisseries that was a 30 mins drive away. I collect specific souvenirs and he helped me hunt for them from shop to shop, patiently helping me acquire everything I wanted, providing opinions and helped me with the bargaining process!

I am a very detailed traveller, who likes to explore every corner of every place and he went above and beyond to make sure I saw everything I wanted to see. Any additional special request was met. He threw in a number of sights and entrances not included.

Youssef really takes pride in his job, his work, his country and his company. He is very perturbed if you do not get the best experience, and I can say he went 200% above and beyond the call of duty; I have never seen this behaviour in my life! Any time I had issues with the hotels, or I requested things that they would not give me, Youssef took matters into his own hands and would be available round the clock, day and night to sort things out. This man even drove back to my hotel one very cold night, hiked up the medina and delivered a complimentary hot dinner to my liking which I could not get near me.

He taught me so much about this wonderful country and Berber culture - he is Berber. Berbers are known to be the most hospitable people but with Youssef, it was both being Berber and a great human being. He cares and probably cares way too much! I had food poisoning mid-way through my journey and he looked after me so well.

We forged a great friendship during the 15 days and it felt like I was travelling with a best friend, rather than a tour guide. He really is the most wonderful person and tour guide. I want you to book immediately if you are hesitating or thinking about it. You will not regret this one bit and you can come and lambaste if you do because I guarantee you, it will not happen.

His price was so fair and I stayed at all 5 star hotels and they were brilliant.

Authenticity with this company is guaranteed. He took me walking underneath the stars at the beautiful Itran Royal Camp in the Merzouga Desert, and he took me to many Berber Villages, as well as the village he grew up in, and I met his family - such wonderful people.

Youssef devotes his heart and soul into this company and his customers, and the service he provides. I do not say that lightly.

I am so grateful I got to meet Youssef because not only was this the most memorable journey, but I met a great man and human being, and it was emotional to say goodbye to him at the end. Youssef and his company deserve the best this world has to offer and I wish him all the best in life!

If I return to Morocco, he will be the first person I'll be racing to contact.
LOVE YOU YOUSSEF. Missing you and I bring back great memories to Sydney, and I will end this review saying this -

I could not settle during the trip on which city was my favourite place (and had told Youssef this). After coming home for 2.5 weeks now, I can say it was Chefchaouen, but the No. 1 most memorable thing about this trip was not actually the cities but the journey itself, and Youssef. He made it so wonderful and I would like to THANK HIM SO MUCH for that.

We had a fabulous experience with Tarla Tours. Our guide, Youssef, was knowledgable and easy going and just plain fun. He arranged beautiful places for us to stay and eat, and was flexible in adapting to some schedule changes and to our requests. We initially booked just a four-day desert tour but extended our time with him, knowing that we would need guides in both Fes and Marrakech. His prices were very fair. Youssef seemed to anticipate our every need. We loved traveling with him and seeing Morocco through his eyes. He seemed to know people everywhere we went and took us places that tourists don't usually go. I would absolutely recommend this company, especially if you want to get off the beaten path.

Morocco is definitely a bucket list and we couldn’t be more happy to have Ahmed and Mouloud from Tarla Tours with us through the 11 days trip. I went with a friend and we were in good hands! Started planning and customising the trip 2 months ahead and Youssef was very responsive to all my enquiries! We started off at Casablanca - Chefchaoeun- Fes- Midelt- Merzouga- Sahara, Erg Chebbi, Quarzazate and finally ended in Marrakesh! Accommodation choices were excellent and we were super blessed to be able to experience all of it with this Moroccan family! Thanks to Ahmed and Youssef for sharing with us your homemade couscous - it was certainly a delight! To Mouloud, thanks for being so sporting and adventurous, teaching us how to tie a Berber headgear, sandboarding and also, the countless times you advised us to be careful in Fes! Definitely always on the lookout for two of us girls! I also particularly enjoyed the Land Cruiser throughout the trip since there were only 4 of us and everything was very flexible and accommodative based on our daily preference!

I would totally recommend anyone to go with Tarla Tours! It is a family based business and knowing that all your money’s worth goes to the local people is what makes travelling meaningful!
