    Highly recommend this tour. There was only one review on here when we booked so I was a bit skeptical. We didn't hear from the tour about the exact pickup time so were a bit worried. But Mehdi was there promptly at 8. The tour was very flexible and excellent value for money. The camps are really great, with showers and hot water, the sunset camel ride was really great and the view of the night skies unforgettable. We were even able to arrange for transfer from Marrakesh to Casablanca with the driver at the end of the trip.

We chose this tour because the standard tour program à la Merzouga and Zagora is not rattled down and we were in no way disappointed. The tour was one of the most exciting of our Morocco vacation. The Chegaga Desert is so varied and beautiful that we would have loved to have stayed there longer. The way there and back (2 hours each to / from the camp) is very bumpy and you shouldn't necessarily have a sensitive stomach, but it is worthwhile in all cases. We would have liked a little more communication, so that, for example, you know in which accommodations you are staying and that, for example, it is best to only travel with a rucksack (when asked by email it was said that the suitcase can be taken with you, but that was very clumsy. ). Our two guides Ayoub and Ali were really nice and funny, we had a wonderful time. I can recommend this tour to anyone who likes it a little more individual & wants to experience the "real" desert

This extraordinary 3-day tour will surely be remembered for a lifetime. We crossed the mountains and valleys of the Atlas Mountains with the SUV, spent the night in an oasis where we got truly authentic impressions of the life of a Berber clan. Dinner with an open fire in the fireplace in the living room, overnight in a simple, clean room, delicious breakfast with freshly baked pastries. We continued towards the desert. Mubarak, our driver was very responsive to our needs and he always knew a nice place to stop. The 3 hour drive through the desert was the next highlight. In the late afternoon we reached our camp where Mohamed was already waiting for us. A camel ride to a dune from which we could watch the sunset was our next item on the program. There was also a great tagine and campfire in the camp. Day 3 again led us through fascinating landscapes back to Marrakech. What a top tour!

Magnificent experience, breathtaking landscapes. Embellished by the company of our guide Hamou Amdyaze a really nice person, available and attentive and at the service of his customers If it were to be done again I would sign immediately without any hesitation especially with the guide Mr Hamou Amdyaze and his very comfortable 4 × 4 vehicle and his natural smile and his knowledge of the history and culture of the different places visited. As is the case for the Auberge restaurant La Terasse des Délices: beautiful, clean and well maintained place. the owner is very friendly welcoming to listen as well as his employees and staff. Succulent and delicious cuisine and more traditional at attractive prices. Unfortunately I have not had the chance to sleep on site this time, but already planned to come back . Conclusion: Re-serve without hesitation and eyes closed.

Highly recommend this tour. There was only one review on here when we booked so I was a bit skeptical. We didn't hear from the tour about the exact pickup time so were a bit worried. But Mehdi was there promptly at 8. The tour was very flexible and excellent value for money. The camps are really great, with showers and hot water, the sunset camel ride was really great and the view of the night skies unforgettable. We were even able to arrange for transfer from Marrakesh to Casablanca with the driver at the end of the trip.

Great day trip with a very pleasant guide. Despite a very long drive, a varied experience with great impressions.
