Everything worked out as planned. Our guide showed up at our riad and began the long drive to Merzouga. He stopped whenever asked for photos and gave us options for lunch. On the return journey he purposely took us to a different lunch location so we could try different foods. The tour in the desert was great, the camel ride was a cool experience and the tagine dinner was excellent. The tents were surprisingly comfortable and warm. It's a long two days in a car but it is so much more comfortable than an overnight bus (the only public transportation option). I also did a fair bit of research and this was the best price I could find. If I had more time available I'd probably do it differently but on a time crunch, this was perfect! The only negative was that the driver didn't stop at the apes on the way there for some reason and on the return journey it was pouring rain so he said they wouldn't be out to see. The only disappointment in an otherwise perfect tour.
Simo, our guide was absolutely amazing. Very nice and easy going, excellent English. Very good driving skills. We felt really safe. He came and picked us up from our hotel at the exact time. The tour it's amazing. The journey from Fes to the desert is long but there are enough stops so you don't feel tired. We had all lunch at a very good restaurant recommended by Simo. The highlight is the night spent at the camp in Sahara desert with the local guys, who will cook for you fresh food and sing around the fire under the stars. The camp is safe. There is hot shower and toilet in the tents. In the morning, they will serve you a delicious breakfast. You will also ride the camel in the desert and the guys will take you photos. Everybody is friendly, helpful. Absolutely recommend this tour. You will never ever regret.
I had a great time on my 2-day/1-night desert trip from Fès. Hassan was a great driver! Always punctual, friendly & informative. Travelling solo, I was given a private-tour in a 4x4, with only one other traveller. Communication prior to the trip was great. Imane responded to all my questions in a quick and courteous manner. That wasn't the case with some of the other tour providers I was corresponding with, so I'm thoroughly glad I went with this company in the end. A word to the wise, camel rides can be bumpy and walking up sand-dunes is a great workout for your calves, if you're into that sort of thing. Definitely worth it for the sunset views over Erg Chebbi!
This 2 day desert experience was incredible and the staff from our driver to the berber camps were amazing. They made us feel at home straight away. The food we were served was delicious and the staff at the camps made sure that we were well looked after and comfortable. I had a few requests that were tended to immediately and the staff went above and beyond to make this experience a memorable one.
I had a great experience! The drive is quite long but definitely worth it for the experience in the desert. Additionally, I had an incredible driver/guide (Mostapha) who stopped for photos at wonderful, scenic locations and showed me a wonderful place for lunch. I highly recommend going on this tour and if you're lucky enough to have Mostapha as your guide then you're in for a treat!
