We had an amazing trip with desert travels. The several stops were impressive, starting with the snowy Atlas Mountains and ending with the sand dunes of Merzouga. Overall the trip was well organized and our guide Reda did a wonderful job. Our only complaint / recommendation to future travelers is that the lunch options and not included aspects (I.e. Village tours) were more expensive than indicated, usually double the price. For lunch, only touristy "menu options" were offered, which were pricey and sub paar for Moroccan standards. Also a tough trip back on the last day for the 3-day tour, so if you have the time, consider going on the 4-day tour to avoid a 12+ hour drive on the way back. Thanks again and we can definitely recommend this trip!!
The tour was well organised and ran very smoothly. Our driver was very kind and kept us in the loop. The accommodation on both nights was very nice, however the desert camp was very basic. There are good vegetarian options at all meals, however if you are vegan be prepared to eat a lot of (very nice) bread. While there is no time when the official tour company exposes you to any local vendors, when local guides take you through there are a few awkward moments if you don’t want to buy anything, however everyone was very kind and not pushy anyway. All in all this tour made our trip to Morocco incredible and is very very worth the money spent.
Great experience! The guide (Reda) was informative and a very safe driver. I was very worried about driving such long distances, but I truly felt safe the entire time. Definitely pay more for the luxury camp! You get to go much further into the desert, and you get a nicer camp with flush toilets/showers and fewer people (only 18 people were at the luxury camp when 50+ were at the "normal" camp sharing a bathroom without flush toilets). The stops along the way to the desert were also interesting and informative. I was happy for the opportunity to learn more about the Berber people.
Exactly as advertised. You get to see several beautiful places and everything is coordinated quite well, but its alot of driving! Great value considering all that is included. Quality of food fluctuates depending on the day, but did have some good meals. If you are determined to see the a snip of the Atlas Mountain and the sandy parts of the Sahara this trip is worth it. Our main driver, Ali, was very kind and helpful and arranging pick-up/drop-off was easy.
I can't recommend this tour enough! Morocco is a warm country with warm people! We've met lots of very kind people in this tour which made it super worth it. Our driver, Assaka, was very kind, helpful, and funny. He doesn't say much but he made the very long drives bearable. The stops were worth it and you wouldn't expect much with the price but trust me, this tour is all you ever need in your 3d 2n in the desert.
