This was a great experience but found it too long on the camel. Wasn't expecting to be tethered to the other camels and found this a little disappointing as we just walked for about an hour in a train through an 'oasis'. Did it for a birthday experience and will not forget it but not sure I'd do this trip again if I'm honest. The berber house was an experience but left me puzzled as was given conflicting local knowledge than on a previous experience. The host of the Berber house tea and bread visit was very hospitable and friendly. Tour guide was friendly. Was a group of 7.

Great experience with wonderful pics of the sunset and moon rising in the background. Our berber guide, Souffian, provided us with a 5 star professional and courteous treatment. Spoke great english, handled the camels very well and stayed behind the six-camel group while the assistant led the group. Other groups that crossed with ours had both handlers in front. Great interaction with a berber family at their home while enjoying mint tea and olive oil. Picked up in a comfortable van at the exact time agreed upon. Definite recommendation; you will enjoy it!!

The whole experience was wonderful. Someone reached out a couple days in advance via email and WhatsApp to let us know what time they'd be by to pick us up. We were picked up from our hotel promptly at the specified time. The driver was very friendly, referring to us by our names, and very knowledgeable. He filled us in on interesting tidbits about the city during our car ride. The camel ride itself was a lovely experience. I think that one hour is the perfect length of time. The sunset was beautiful and lasted quite a while. The silhouette of palm trees against the painted sky made for plenty of picturesque photos. The guides were witty and conversational and kept the whole tour group laughing nonstop. They also offered to take plenty of photos and videos of us on the camels. Finally, we had mint tea, bread, and olives at a Berber house. Our host was kind, refilling our glasses as soon as they were empty and bringing out a plate piled high with homemade biscuits. Afterwards, we were dropped back to our hotel. Honestly a wonderful little adventure!

Our guide during the pick-up, Jamal, was extremely friendly, conversant, knowledgeable. Our guides while on the camels, Yousif and Ali, gave clear directions for mounting, assisted with photos and made the process extremely easy. Their conversations during the trip was entertaining and the group interaction was fantastic. The night was nicely finished at a Berber home with the comforts of mint tea, bread, olive oil and olives.

What an amazing and fun experience! Our tour guide, Jamal, was so accommodating, knowledgeable and friendly. Hamza, our guide for the camel ride, taught us about the camels and the Berber people. We visited a Berber family to see how they lived. They were so hospitable, kind and generous. This was a fabulous experience and the professionalism and care that we received from Jamal and Hamza made all the difference!

Ten stars! Jamal was a genuine, honest, safe driver and a gentleman. Ismail was an outstanding camel guide and leader, really funny with an infectious smile and personality. Both had terrific sense of humors and were good guys - highly trustworthy. Due to them, Morocco redeemed itself. This experience was one of the best highlights of my life. I highly recommend this adventure, and would request Jamal and Ismail - they made it what it was.

This was a great time and the 2 guides as well the Berber gentleman that took us into his home was so nice. The guides were entertaining to say the least, at one point they had us singing Hello from Adel! The only negative not their fault is that the Palm Grove had lots of areas where there that appeared to be trash dumps, the photo was slightly miss leading as I thought we were going to actually be closer to the desert, but all in all it was worth the time and money. Loved my camel Victoria
