Be aware that there is a huge difference between a driver & a driver/guide. Many travelers book a tour & end up with just a driver who will comfortably get you from point A to B but will not give you a real tour. In other words: A driver without the personality or knowledge to make your tour special. A recent trip report on TA (from another Toronto traveler btw) was pulled that highlighted this fact about one of the key players that we have discussed here . . . so book carefully.

I agree with Lan, It's True i also read that as she said her honest review was removed by the owner, that's a huge problem with travellers to find the honest Tour, try to read everything before you do your trip ask for more details to make sure you'll enjoy your trip as it's planned on your plans.
Which means suit your needs.
Good advice Lan.

to respond to the original question/list of operators --

My husband & I used Journey Beyond Travel (you wrote Tomorrow but I think you meant Travel) and they were fabulous to work with.
I wrote a fairly detailed trip report here on fodors - here is the link if you're interested

I don’t understand why my reply was deleted? I had a similar situation as well. I had spent a lot of time researching guides and tour companies. I eventually went with Ali from Camel Safaries as he responded promptly, and was professional. He was genuine in what was promised and went beyond our expectations. I highly recommended this company. Should you need details of my experience, please let me know directly.

I have finally narrowed it down to two -- Lahcen B and Dessert Majesty. DM seems a bit calmer and slower a pace, and has many options for staying with locals. Lahcen's company seems to be more "go getter" in a positive way -- but I'm not sure I'm prepared to be burnt out at the end of the week. I have spoken with several single women who have used DM, in the US and one from France (NOT TOUTS) who had very good experiences but perhaps a bit on the quiet driver side...?

Decisions, decisions...

We traveled with Lahcen Boujouija from Around Morocco in September 2011. He is the owner of the company. You can read my and my husband's trip reports on TA, but I can't recommend Lahcen enough. You will not go wrong with him. I was in a similar situation when I started looking for a guide for our anniversary trip to Morocco. He responded the quickest, came up with itinerary that included everything we wanted to see in 7 short days that we've had. He takes care of everything for you: hotels, food, transportation, tours. You say it, and it's done. Really. He values his reputation very much so I can honestly say that his customers' satisfaction is very important to him.
He knows Morocco like 10 fingers on his hands. He speaks impeccable English, extremely easy to get along with. We spent hours (and I mean hours) in the car together and we never got bored. He is a very good, safe driver -- and I don't say that lightly as I am paranoid about having someone else drive, except my husband, who spent the entire trip in the back of the car =))
Really -- if you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.
