What people are saying about Ait Benhaddou
An amazing trip! Our driver was excellent, everything is well organized and the camp in the desert is comfortable and clean. The only thing we didn’t enjoy at all was the hotel where we slept the firs night. Rooms are very old and it was very cold. Don’t pay the supplement, rooms are all the same. Anyway, the whole experience is something to do once in life. When you see the sunset on the top of the dunes, you easily forget the horrible hotel in which you slept the night before!
Great and exotic experience to see the desert. A long drive over the mountains but interesting to get to see the life in the desert towns and villages. Small multicultural group in mini buss and got a lot of new friends! Good guides and driver.
Had the best time ever on this tour, and the partner company are really good. There is a lot of driving, but worth it for the sights you see. Prepare for a cold night on the second night, when in the desert, but also a wonderful experience with the camels, food and music. Ando Travel (the tour partner) were a great company and we had a great driver called Mohammed. Definitely one of the best things we’ve done.
We had a great time on this tour! We were late to the pick up place but driver was so nice to turn back and come pick us up 20mins later. He was very fun to travel with, very good person. He drove safely and quickly to all the sights. All stops were wonderful in its own way - very good trip planned. The staff at the desert was amazing and fun! We had the traditional dinner as well. The tents are comfortable for 1 night and if you want to fully enjoy the Sahara experience you’ll stay up all night just as we did! Keep in mind the lunches are not included in price so count about 200 dirhams per lunch for 2 (3course meal) The last day is just a 12 hours drive no sights anymore. We built such a great group though thst it went very fast as we talked the whole way back. You can also enjoy the scenery and local villages along the way. 100% recommend!!!!
The 3 days and 2 nights are a minimum considering all of the driving but worth it. You see fabulous parts of Morocco. The drive through the Atlas MTs was breathtaking and our driver was very competent handling the switchbacks. Depending on the time of year you need both clothing for the heat and cold. Our guide day 2 ALI was fabulous with depth of knowledge and a sense of humor. I made good friends on the trip. I opted for the luxury camp which did separate me from the group in my van which was disappointing. There were ample stops for breaks and food. Bring water and sunscreen, dreess in layers, and back up battery for cell phone, you have so many photo ops. The camel ride is quite an adventure, a little daunting but hey, I'm a senior citizen and made it.
