Incredible desert tour of Marrakech

This experience was not only one of the highlights of our entire Moroccan adventure, but it was also unique. And if you hire Ibrahim as your driver, he is the best! We met some amazing people through this adventure that will undoubtedly be part of our lives for years to come. As it is a long trip, the tour is divided into several stops along the way that, without this excursion, we would never have seen. Once we got to the desert, the camel ride was more than special and the glamping area was very nice. The food was good and there was a bonfire with Moroccan bongos for entertainment. I was surprised at how well maintained and clean the place was. The staff was more than courteous and attentive. The only "point" was that one of the tour guides went overboard in expressing his religious beliefs, which clearly offended some other tour participants. I would recommend this tour group - and Ibrahim and his team - to anyone who asked me for a recommendation.Enjoy!

A lifetime experience!

UAW What a trip! Booked on the basis of other reviews and many people can not and was not wrong. Everything stationary was so well planned and everyone friendly and welcoming. Our driver Ibrahim was fun and kept us on schedule even when some of us were late lol. The best part was getting to Merzouga. When we arrived, my friend and I were the only ones quad biking through the desert and I had a blast. With my anxiety, some of the dunes were a little scary and our guide stopped to let me catch my breath and even took me down some dunes and brought the quad back to me. The sunset was amazing, especially with the camel rides. This is where the long drive back to Marrakech begins, but it was so worth it. I highly recommend it.

Excellent experience

The excursion was well worth it. We enjoyed it very much, although it was a bit tiring because we spent many hours in the van (Marrakech is 11 hours drive from the desert base town). Apart from the desert, the other places we visited were also very interesting, such as Ait Ben Haddou, the Berber Cooperative and the Todra Gorges. Our van driver, Abdul, was always very friendly, polite, helpful and careful on the road. As for the desert in particular, we were hoping to go deeper and for the camp to be more isolated, but it is located very close to the edge, almost in town. In any case, the desert scenery is very beautiful and worth it. The camel ride is not necessary, as the distance covered is short and can even be done on foot (the guides even pull the camels on foot), thus avoiding the exploitation of the animals, which are tied and muzzled. The accommodation and meals (two dinners and two breakfasts) were excellent. Overall, it was a great experience, which we enjoyed and highly recommend. And the value for money is excellent.

Travel to the Sahara

A fantastic experience, the bus always very fresh, regular stops and lunches in quality restaurants. Stay in Tinghir in a really good hotel, very interesting and dynamic visits with amazing local guides in Ait Ben Haddou and Todgha gorges. The camel ride was unforgettable, with a night in a very traditional camp. I highly recommend Sahara Morocco Tours

A perfect experience.

Honestly, my wife and I had the best trip of our lives. An unforgettable experience. The tour goes through Morocco, passing through several fantastic places such as the Atlas Mountains, Ait Ben Haddou and arriving in Merzouga, we are welcomed by camels, take pictures and spend the night in a tent in the famous Sahara desert, with a delicious dinner. The driver, Hamid spoke several languages, including English and Spanish, and was very helpful and friendly. Thank you very much.

A trip to remember

You know that trip you keep in your memory? This was one of them. The thing is that, to be one of them, it was important to have a good structure so that we only had to worry about enjoying the trip, and so it was. I am a fan of the "take a place in the center and from there we will discover the city on our own" style of travel, but in Morocco I gave it up and, in this case, it was worth it and, dare I say, it was the best way. Crossing the country into the desert through the mountains is a fantastic experience and Said's staff made sure it was one to remember. I highly recommend it.
