The whole tour is very well planned. There were lots of stops on the way, so even the way back (11 hrs in the bus) was tolerable. The space between seats is very small though, so you can´t totally relax in the bus. Our guide Mustafa was nice, patient and helpful, as well as the guides at the places where we stopped for a sightseeing. Air-conditioning worked well (unlike in the buses of some other Sahara tour organisers). The hotel was nice and comfy, so were the tents at Merzouga. It was really nice to get a private tent just for the two of us. Riding a camel is shaky and a bit painful, partly because I am quite heavy, but the "camel guy" helped me a lot. Sahara was MAGICAL, especially sunset & sunrise, as well as looking at the sky over Sahara at night: millions of shining stars. There´s one thing that should have been mentioned to us in advance: you can´t take even a small suitcase to Sahara. You have to pack things in a separate back bag, so many of us had to re-pack in Merzouga.
We loved our tour. Mustapher, our driver, our tour guide, is great. He is prompt, knowledgeable, detail in all aspect, and good conservationist. We are a group of 3 friends+ Patrick, who we met in this tour, total 4. We had so much fun, good conversation, good information regarding Morocco, the country, different types of cultures, family etc. We get to see so much of this region, from Fez to Marrakech, different villages, towns, "cities" etc. He made different stops for us to experience the towns, and stretches. It's a lot of car time, but a lot of interesting, fantastic view. The Sahara desert is amazing, sunset, camel ride, Berber tent, dinner, camp fire and dancing. The next morning, we watch the sunrise, yummy breakfast, more camel ride, more sight seeing and learning from Mustapher, until the 2nd night in a beautiful hotel, we loved it. Great hot shower, yummy buffet dinner, great accommodation, and yummy buffet breakfast in the morning. Highlight of our trip. LoveLove
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 !
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.
What a wonderful trip for an amazing price. This tour felt like a private tour, it was just the right sized group for it to be social but not overcrowded. The tour matched the description and exceeded our expectations. There is no getting away from it being a long journey, but the frequent stops make it manageable and it is totally worth it to see the Sahara! The stars are amazing!!!!! The accommodation was high quality with private tents and thick blankets - ideal for the chilly nights.
