What people are saying about Ouarzazate
The driver Tariq was good driver. The weather was not to good (it was snowing in the mountain) but we were in full safety. It was our first visitation in Sahara and it was unforgetable. In the Atlas was -5 and after that in the desert was +20 degree so you have to thinking about. The trip was all day long but if you read the description and feedbacks you can get ready for drinks, sandwiches, clothes, etc. We made lot of stops so we could use toilets, buy souvenirs, eat lunch, take pictures. The nature was very nice, excellent and various. Cool adventure and experince. On the whole I offer this trip if you would like to see the desert and the Atlas in 1 day.
Lanhar was an excellent guide: kind, thoughtful and informative. The colours of the stony desert were amazing; Ait Benhaddou is almost surreal. We saw how the 'bricks' were made and learned of the history of this place. We were given free time at Ouarzazate and I learned of its history. The road is treacherous and hence Lanhar's careful driving was a key element in the enjoyment of the day. Lanhar has a friendly but not intrusive disposition which makes him an ideal guide. He created a very easy atmosphere in the group. I had a great day. Thank you
Experience was great as well as our guide Mohamed. The only issue we faced was realated to the hotel. As per email and agreements we were expecting one hotel while, just before the check in, they informed us that it was fully booked, so they booked a different one ... that was crapy (seriously!) I refuse myself to stay there and the agency was lovely to find a different (and much better!) solution.
My boyfriend and I really enjoyed the trip. It was very (!) well organised and Aziz (#2) was very welcoming and helpful. Account for a long time in the car - but it was worth it as you get to see the beautiful Atlas Mountains, enjoy the camel rides, stay in a lovely camp (with showers!) and visit 2 historical cities. The value for money is super high! We are very happy that we went!
Our driver was very polite and flexible with the schedule so we had the chance to go to Ait Ben Haddou first and enjoy the sunny weather before it got cold and windy. He didn't speak very good english but that wasn't that big of a problem. He also drove very smoothly which made the long journey less tiring.
