What people are saying about Marrakech
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!
I would call it a road trip rather than a desert tour (desert is definitely a highlight but only a very small part of the tour). Very good organised and a lot of Programm!! I wouldn't recommend it for elderly people or young kids due to the long ride and bumpy streets. And don't expect too High Standart in the desert camp ;) all in all a fantastic experience.
Absolutely brilliant! It is a long journey from Marrakech so you have to be aware of this but there are plenty of rest stops. It was also cold at night (as expected during winter during the desert) but bearable and very impressed by the camp (very good set up). Dancing the night away with the Berber people around the fire with new friends I had made along the way was an experience not to be missed.
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.
