Wonderful experience! Great guide (Mohammed) and fantastic driver (Hassan). Our guide was very entertaining and caring and his english was very good (he was also able to speak chinese which I found quiet impressive;)). Also the driver was very friendly and he did not drive like hell (big plus!).
After our first stay in the Valley of the rose in the fantastic „Kasbah itran“, we went to a canyon and afterwards to the desert near mezouhga. Even if the weather was not optimal (cloudy and rainy), we had lots of fun. Camel ride was amazing. Going back on the last day was also okay. Yeah it’s long but the environment is changing all the time from desert to stone desert to canyons and the greenish Atlas Mountains.
Would highly recommend doing it!

Mohamed (Guide) and Yousef (Driver) were fantastic for the full trip. It's a long road trip but if your comfortable with that its a great way to see a lot of Morocco in a few days.

This was an absolutely incredible experience. Khalid was so knowledgeable and helpful. He truly changed the trip for us. The Sahara is beautiful and the Atlas Mountains were surprising in size. Pack extra if you’re headed out during the winter months- it’s quite cold in the dunes.

Morocco is a must country to visit!!! It was an amazing experience being in the Sahara Desert and riding camels during the sunset and sunrise. Ismail our tour guide was very informative, progressive and willing to answer all my questions regarding the culture and norms of Morocco. It's a must tour if you would like to visit the Sahara Desert.

Highlight of our holiday! The camel rides, and watching the sun fall and rise across the dunes were an incredible experience! Our driver and guide Khalid was amazing! His friendly and helpful self made the long journey easy-going and we made lots of interesting stops along the way. If you have never been to the desert, this is a fantastic way to experience it!

Long drive but definitely worth it to see the desert. Our guide Khalid was great and answered all of our questions and made the trip more pleasant. Wouldn't miss if you're spending time in Morocco.

I recently went on this tour with a friend, we booked everything last minute, but didn't regret a thing. This tour was a highlight of our trip. Our tour guide Khalid was a super calm, friendly, a can do person. His English is superb!! We had a very mixed International group of 8 people who were also very cool, so we had a good crowd to spend our 3 days with :-

Khalid was informative, assertive and did everything in his power to make sure we had a great time bear in mind it was Ramadan.

We stayed in an Authentic accommodation on both evenings, had good quality food, all in all an authentic and great sight seeing trip.

The Camel ride and night in the dessert under the stars with local music group is a night to remember.

This was the absolute highlight of our trip to Morocco, a great adventure which we were privileged to share with our guide Mohammed 1, and our driver, Mohammed 2. We were picked up in a mini bus in the main square and were in a group of nine travellers. This turned out to be a plus as we were different ages and nationalities, making it a diverse and fun group, and Mohammed 1 set about drawing us all together. As we travelled along he told highly detailed stories about the places, culture, people and customs, interspersed with little jokes and even riddles! The first day we visited Ait Benhaddou and the Rose Valley. On arrival at the hotel which exceeded our expectations, he arranged for a few local teenagers to take us on a walk around the area where we explored abandoned Kasbahs. Dinner was a traditional tagine, and afterwards the two Mohammeds and some of the hotel staff became singers and drummers whilst we joined in and danced, a great evening and a lot of fun.
On Day 2 we visited the Todra Gorge before continuing towards the desert. There were always sufficient stops for food and drink and comfort breaks. You HAVE to try Berber pizza, it's amazing! At a hotel at the edge of the desert we repacked what we needed in a small rucksack for overnight, mounted our camels and were off into the dunes. By the way, wait for the camel guide to tell you when to mount, as if you get on in the wrong order, the camels will all stand up at the wrong moment - we saw this happen in another group! We rode for about an hour or so, being led by our two camel guides until we reached the camp. We had our own little room and there was a mini toilet block with a light!, you don't need to leave the camp in the night.
After watching the sunset we had a late dinner followed by more drumming around a camp fire. With no light pollution, looking up at the stars is like being in a planetarium, absolutely magical. We slept surprisingly well but were up very early to watch the sunrise. Take a thick sweater, it's cold, but the effort is well worth it for the best moment you will ever have of watching the sun rise up over the red dunes.
We trekked back to the hotel at the edge of the desert for breakfast and then it was all the way back to Marrakech. In all honesty, I wish we'd been able to break this up as it was a really long day in the mini bus, and about half of it is on winding mountain roads with a sheer drop. It's not for the faint-hearted. But we're still riding on a cloud after this trip. days after getting home. Thank you Mohammed 1 and Mohammed 2 for the best ever experience which we will always remember.
