The camp in the desert and the stops with the driver in the atlas mountains.

Really nice camp and the driver abdu was truly amazing. He made everything smooth and helped with anything we needed. If he is the level of customer service, I am sure everyone will enjoy the roadtrip.

ドライバーのオマールがサービス満点で面白かった。途中車を止めて絶景を案内してくれたり、曲をこちらの携帯につなげて聞かせてくれたり(もちろんモロッコの曲も聞かせれくれた)、途中買い物スポットに寄ってくれたりと、ずっと楽しませてくれました。砂漠も想像していたよりすごく快適でいい経験ができました!砂漠にあんな快適なシャワーとトイレがあると思っていませんでした。とてもいい経験になりました! Out guid Omar is very good driver! It was so nice tour!

A well-trodden path on a whistle stop tour but well worth it

- Lots of reviews have highlighted that there is a lot of driving involved 6-7 hrs each day). Be prepared. - This is a very standard tourist tour and if you make your peace with this you will really enjoy what you see. If you don't and expect something where you feel special then look elsewhere. - Berber camp is a tourist camp but my experience here was surprisingly enjoyable. - The drive is a great way to see the beautiful Atlas mountains, Kasbahs and Kzars as well as Sahara desert. - You will be brought to a carpet shop, her shop and lunch place in the hope of you spending money there so be warned. - Driver was very good and made sure we kept pace to see everything while making the most of the shorter December days. - Berber camp-style experience was good fun with good welcome and food was good. - Watching the sunrise over the desert was magical. Be aware others on my tour booked with an agent in Marrakech and paid less than half what I paid for the same tour.

A lot of car time and a few pleasant surprises
KevinScelia

A few things to consider before you take this trip: 1) ~16 Hours in a car over two days. Make sure you pre-plan some personal entertainment by downloading movies, books, podcasts, etc... 2) Go to Atlas Movie Studios if you love pop culture. A lot of movies/television were filmed here (Gladiator, The Mummy, Game of Thrones) 3) Buy beer or wine beforehand to enjoy at the Desert Camp. You can ask your driver to stop at a place along the way. 4) Tip your Camel Guide after the first ride through the desert. They will help make your experience in the camp more pleasurable by providing you the best tents as well as provide a more private experience for watching the sunrise the next morning. 5) Be prepared at the Ait Ben Haddou to be forced to use a "Travel Guide". This was our most disappointing part of the trip. No where in the description was it clear that a guide was required for the experience. Our driver was trying to help negotiate, but at the same time you couldn't but help but feel they weren't on your side. Really the only time in Morocco we felt a little taken advantage of. We ended up negotiating pretty hard and our guide was so mad he didn't say anything as we walked through the location. 6) Download and check We Chat. The day before our trip, received an email saying our driver would arrive between 7:20 and 7:40. Went to bed early and woke-up early to be outside at 7:20, to only later find out that I received a text through We Chat that our driver was not planning to arrive until 8:00. Because of some confusion on our location, ended up not getting on the road until 8:20. Not the end of the world, but definitely frustrating to wake up so early and ultimately wait around for an hour.

Misleading Details and Images - Not recommended.

Advertised to include 4x4, but instead included a bus with 15 more people (it is almost 8h each day on the road, and the bus was very uncomfortable, specially when you paid for a 4x4). Desert is rocky instead of smooth dunes like shown in the pictures. Bus driver and camel riders barely spoke any english. In general we feel the advertisement was misleading and the pricing was excessive. We wrote to the tour operator with our complaints and have not heard back. WE ARE EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED AND DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS TOUR.

I waited 90 minutes and driver never showed up. Have not received full refund from Art de Cuivre travel or Viator (after 36 hours of no-show. Have sent several messages and no full reimbursement). This company is a scam. Karim will not take care of you. Do NOT book with this company. I have visited more than 45 countries and lived in developing countries for 8 years - customer service expectations are not high. Karim is not a legit tour operator.

Wonderful Desert Experience
Meghan S

While the drive to and from the desert is rather long, the experience once at the desert campsite is wonderful. Our driver was kind and took breaks for bathroom and food on the drive to the desert. There were also stops at other attractions and cities along the way. The campsite was nice as were the people at the camp. Overall, a good option if you want to go to the desert but don’t have time to go all the way to the Sahara!

Great, scenic tour

We booked this tour as part of a week holiday in Marrakech. We were aware that it would involve a lot of travelling but were prepared for this. Abdel was fantastic and stopped at some amazing sites along the way. He also linked us with a local guide called Ali at Ben Hadou which was great. The sunset camels and desert camp is very special and a brilliant experience. Totally recommend!

Cool trip. Abdul was an awesome guide! Would recommend this trip for sure if you're visiting Morroco.
