This experience was divided into three parts:
1. Transportation to the desert: terrible service, the van did not have air conditioning and it was over 40 degree celcius. Driver was very rude, and said he was not given enough money to put the aircon on. Only one small window, for a 17 pax van. The hotel where we stayed the first night was horrible and in the middle of nowhere. Nothing interesting to see.
2. The desert: The experience was very nice.
3. Transportation to Fes. Luckily we were not going back to Marrakech, so they changed our transportation to a smaller van to Fes. No aircon either but good ventilation.
