What people are saying about Sahara Desert

Magical, a trip you will always remember and cherish.

Looking at the name of the trip, you only expect to see the desert. But the roadtrip by itself is a beautifull experience. The trip takes you to the Atlas Mountains, to the ancient Ait Ben Haddou, with your local guide who will tell you a lot about the history of those places. Staying in the hotel in Tanghir with a pool is a welcome surprise to end the first day. Second day is all about getting to the desert we thought, so again it was a nice surprise that we first visited the green valley and mountains of Tanghir which looks like a fata morgana. After Tanghir you go to Merzouga to stay at the desert which is the best part of the trip. The desert is just beautifull and magical, watching the sun going down and up. Sleeping in the tent is okay. Warm, but the bed is really okay. Food is fine, the people are very polite. On our way back we had a big thunderstorm in the Atlas Mountains. Roads were blocked due to heavy rainfall and mudstreams. Our driver Obama Mohamed saved us big time.

Unbelievable experience, definitely take the trip!!

We did the 3 day tour to Merzouga from Marrakech this week. It was one of the most unbelievable experiences we have ever had. The Sahara is truly amazing. It is a long drive, however on the way it is split up with a night in a hotel and lots of other activities. The hotel on the first night was very clean and comfortable with good air conditioning and a big swimming pool. All of the guides that we met along the way were very friendly and knowledgable. The driver was also great and made plenty of toilet and water stops. The bus was also comfortable and the air conditioning was used the whole journey there and back. On the way back it is just a straight journey on the bus and yes it is long, however the journey is absolutely worth it for the experience!!! Riding the camels in to the Sahara and watching the sunset and sunrise was breathtaking. The actual camp is also much more comfortable than we expected, was really great and the Berber tribe were so good and accommodating!

An amazing experience with friendly people

I booked this for my partners birthday before we went out to Morocco. We were a little late being picked up but the experience made up for it. Ibrahim was our guide and he made sure we were comfortable and safe all the way. He made sure I was in the middle so that I was safe and he made sure I was okay. We did a couple of stops to take a rest and some Water. This was fantastic value for money. TUi were offering similar and it was £60 each at the same place. I would choose to do it in the morning as it’s cooler out in the desert. We were offered tea and a lovely homemade pancake at the end outside a house. Couldn’t have had a better experience and everyone was very friendly. Highly recommend :)

Very good organised trip in which we’ve seen a lot in little time!

We’ve had a great experience with this trip. Our driver Mohamed Bajo was waiting for us near our Riad in time and perfectly drove us anywhere with several stops at hotspots to take pictures and enjoy the view or have a break. Riding the camels to the camp was also very fun and the overall experience at the desert was really worth the long drive! The only downside is that it’s really hot in the desert, so we would recommend not to go there when it’s above 35 degrees, since there are no air conditioners obviously.

Interesting experience but too many hours by bus

The tour was interesting but we were on rush all the time. Not enought time for seeing all the places and no free time. We wasted time going to the shops the guide took us, the restaurants for lunch were expensive + bad service/quality (in comparison with other ones we went by ourselves), the hotel of the first night was not a 4* hotel (at most 2...) and the last day was hard because of the 10 hours of bus with only 3-4 stops for coffee/toilet.
