Stunning 3 days Fes desert trip ever

The best trip by far! I loved our tour with Hassan. He took us to all the must see attractions and he was very patient with us as we stopped by a few shops for souvenirs. Hassan also invited us to his house for tea! Super hospitable. He would definitely go back to Morocco again
