Amazing experience, we rode the camels through the desert, we enjoyed the sunset and the sand boarding. They 2 boys guiding us (Mohammed and Mostafa) were really kind and well prepared. When arriving at the tends we had a lovely dinner with really good staff serving us. The best part was after dinner where we sat around a fire and we told stories and jokes with the all the guys working at the tends, they've been playing music too. We are really grateful for the experience they gave us. We're sorry if we don't remember all their names but we will definitely remember them as good and friendly people.

Amazing experience!! We ride camels for about 1 h:30 min where we could only see the sand and the big dunes of the desert, we stop to take some pictures. We enjoy seeing the sunset and we stayed in an amazing camp. Our guides were very friendly and funny guys! The dinner was expeptional and plenty and after that we sang and danced in the fire under the stars! The other day we saw the sunrise and we returned to the hotel, where we took our breakfast, which was delicious and plenty!

Once at the hotel it took a while and you didn't really know when to start. With several cars we went to the dromedaries. Riding is not 100% comfortable and rocks a bit, the animals are kept close together by ropes in the mouth, which is certainly not the most beautiful method, but the animals were worse with other groups ... The guide was super nice, had fun and made photos. The food was amazingly one of the best we had in Morocco ... sleeping in the tent wasn't cold at least in mid-October and we had taken jackets for free. Sunset, sunrise etc. as described. We had a great experience and would recommend it to everyone.
