This tour was fantastic. Mustapha (our guide) had a wealth of knowledge and explained the importance of different sites. Be prepared for long drives however there are plenty of photo ops and leg stretches plus yummy food along the way. The landscape is diverse and beautiful + Sahara was magnificent
This was an excellent trip, our driver and guide where very entertaining and we thoroughly enjoyed our time with them. The last day is a lot of driving.
A brilliant trip! Had some amazing lifetime experiences and met some wonderful people!
Definitely would recommend! But do be warned you will be driving for a long time!
This was a great tour! My boyfriend and I traveled to Marrakech for 8 days and took this tour in the middle of our stay, which made for a nice break from busy Marrakech. We definitely recommend this tour and our guide, Mustapha.
This tour allows you to see many different aspects of Morocco - from arid mountains to amazing canyons to lush valleys to the Sahara... The hours in the car can be tiring though they are necessary, as on the return trip you pretty much cross Morocco in a day, but there are plenty of stops in amazing places from which you can take pictures too.
Our guide, Mustapha, was at all times kind, friendly, accommodating of our needs, and never tired of our questions - giving us information about Morocco, the Berber culture, music, and anything and everything else that came up, as well as being a translator for us at times, and even giving us guidance about what's normal to pay when bartering. He and our driver, Hassan, made us feel in safe and knowledgeable hands at all times.
The different places included in this tour are all amazing spots, and the food served was abundant. You get to be in incredible places, like a little hotel with an overview of a lush valley at Kalaat M'Gouna, where you get to also see more stars than you can probably see from anywhere in Europe, and in the desert you even have an actual bed, and there's a separate toilet for the small group we were seven in total in this tour, including Mustapha and Hassan. Needless to say just riding a camel into the Sahara is an amazing experience in itself!
We had an awesome time and both my boyfriend and I are happy to recommend this tour and Mustapha - this has given us some beautiful memories of our first time in Morocco. This trip is well worth the money spent. A 10 out of 10! :
Amazing experience in Sahara! I booked this small-group tour from Marrakech to Merzouga, and it was definitely the most memorable experience of my Morocco trip. I was the only participant on that day, so I departed with the driver, Anas, from Marrakech. He was so kind and care for me everything, he was checking everytime during the tour if there's any inconvenience. One night in Sahara desert was fantastic, with numerous stars on the sky. Riding Camel was little bit tired, but it worth it. Not only the expereince in Sahara, but also times in other destinations like Dades gorge, Ait Benhaddou, Ouarzazate were so nice. Anas explained about places and also islamic culture in fluent English. I really enjoyed this tour, and highly recommend to choose this company for relaxing/comfort experience. I'll surely choose this company for my next trip to Morocco, for longer program.
This was a fabulous trip!! Our driver, Hasan, was OUTSTANDING - we stopped along the way to experience Moroccan culture which added to the trip. He was an excellent and careful driver who navigated the Atlas Mountains with expert grace.
Hasan was an EXCELLENT and dafe driver and his information at each stop along the way made the trip even more special!! This is one crazy American Lady as Hasan began to refer to me who would recommend this trip unequivocally!!! This trip was so much more than the camel ride and camping in the desert.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TRIP and THIS COMPANY!!!!
Sidi Mohammed is a first class guide. From the moment we met he was professional, courteous, calm, and utterly competent. Our accommodations were fantastic, local and characteristic of the region. Our trip took us 1120km into the desert, with sights, sounds, experiences to last a lifetime. Mohammed augmented the trip with his phenomenal knowledge, patience, commitment. A phenomenal experience worth repeating and recommending to anyone looking for an authentic and unique view into Morocco.
