  1. Roxana Andries

    This was a fabulous trip, so relaxing, such a taste of the variety of the different environs in Morocco and the history of the areas. Our driver and general guide were so knowledgeable and accommodating that this trip was the number one of my lifetime

  2. Lea Haucke

    Amazing experience in the desert! The stars at night were breathtaking. Our driver Murad was super friendly and helpful as well. Definitely recommend.

  3. Tansy Robinson

    We had a very good time on the tour. Especially our driver Abderrahim and our guide Ali were great. They were very accommodating and nice, and always offered to get us water or take photos of us. Ali always provided us with information about the places etc we drove through and once even got me extra medication when I wasn’t feeling so well. Abderrahim drove very carefully so that we never felt uncomfortable in the car. The tour was well planned and the sometimes very long car rides were easy to bear. The tour is definitely recommended for everyone who wants to escape the big tourist hustle and bustle and still wants to see all the important places.

  4. Samara Penn

    We are a couple from the U.S and were recommended this tour operator by friends, we were staying in Marrakech for a couple of days and thought of doing a little tour around the country heading either north or south, we’ve been in touch with Abdou our tour organizer and suggested this 4 day Sahara desert tour at this time of the year, and indeed it’s been one of our best journeys ever, bearing in mind we’ve never been in a Sahara desert before.
    The whole itinerary was perfectly organized and I’m absolutely sure it couldn’t be better.
    The drive, the scenic road with countless beautiful villages, Kasbahs, guided visits, food, and people.
    We enjoyed the camel ride to our camp and the camp itself which was fancy from the inside.
    There is no doubt we will recommend you guys, thanks from the bottom of our hearts.

  5. Jess Everett

    Our driver Abdou was great. Took us to local places and we met a local musician he knows. He helped make the experience a joy. The camel trip was nice and the camp was well put together. Overall would recommend to anyone.

  6. Bryon Dobbs

    We truly got the best visit possible with our Driver Jamal, he really encompasses the good will and friendliness of Morocco. 100% recommend!!!

  7. Susan Chisholm

    Amazing experience:
    This tour was amazing. We did not have the chance to watch the sunset due to weather condition but we saw the the sunrise. It was unbelievable!!! Thanks so much to Abdou, he was our driver from Marrakech to Merzouga, super nice, helpful and funny. The camel part was a bit hard but worth it. Hope they can give better instructions tho, sometimes we felt a bit lost of what we have to do next.
