Overall a fantastic day, would definitely recommend. Both guides were very knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions and we loved learning about the Berber culture. Our driver was called Hassan. It was a welcomed escape from the business of Marrakesh and would recommend if you have a few days in Marrakesh (we had 4 days). The walk in the Berber town was lovely and the lunch that was served was very tasty. The only thing preventing this from being a 5 star review is that there needs to be better communication regarding pick up locations- we were informed of a location a short walk from our Riad and we emailed to confirm the location but did not get a reply. We were waiting for 35 minutes at the location until the driver found us and told us we were waiting in the wrong location and the welcome we received seemed a bit frosty. However after a slightly bumpy start to the day it was all great from then on. Other than this slight logistical error would highly recommend this day trip.
We enjoyed at maxim every moment of this beautiful trip. We started from Marrakech our trip with guide Hicham and another 8 travellers. The van is very confortable - with clima-, our guide Hicham is a good driver, we feel in safe during at the trip. Furthermore, he is a very cool personality. He likes what he is doing. We receive a lot of information about Marocco, about berber's lifestyle, traditions. He always stopped, when we want to buy something, to go on toilet, or to make pictures. A lot of panoráma on this trip, to make huge photos,show by hím. He reccomended us the restaurants to eat. Morocco is an interesting and beautiful country. We are feeling wondered in the Sáhara, at Merzouga dunes. Camel ride is the most fine thing, at sunset and át sunrise too. The berber camp is something undescriptionable. Confort of 5 stars in a tent, good food, and berber show. I think he is a famous berber singer, because he plays on diferents instruments here... Thanks for U !
Great experience if u are willing to spend long hours in a mini ban through very bumpy and under development roads. As the other reviews said the driver makes few stops in crappy road restaurants for quick stops or meals, which I didn't care as I didn't took this trip for fancy meals. Excursions are interesting and of course u have to tip everybody. Best experience and the main reason is to arrive to the entrance to the desert. Camel ride was fun both ways , best is the sunset and sunrise from the Dunes. Berber Camp was fun too, with a nice dinner and music, seeing the clear sky by night was quite special too. Recommended if u want to sleep at the dessert and ride camels. Beware of the 8 -9 hours in the car each way.
I can recommend this day trip, it was a great experience. The company was flexible enough to change my ticket to Tuesday when I realised I won't be able to make Monday. Hassan the driver is a great guy, really did everything for four of us to have a nice experience from picking us up to safe driving and lots of local information which you wouldn't necessarily be able to google. In the valley in the Atlas mountains we joined another group of 5 people for a walk and lunch. Our tour guide was Ahmed, a local guy. I think this was my favourite part of the day, as he told us a lot of interesting stories and facts and invited us to his own home for a tea. (Thank you Ahmed!)
Definitely one of the highlights of our trip! Each day is broken up with regular stops either for excursions and photo opportunitues or refreshment and toilet breaks. The bus was comfy and the driver and guides very knowledgeable. There was some pressure to buy a scarf on the 1st day (can buy them for €3-5 elsewhere and later in the trip vs €10-12) but they are very polite if you decline. Great value for money and an amazing experience all round. Would recommend this over the deluxe option.
