Unforgettable experience

An unforgettable experience! The scenery was breathtaking the whole way, making the drive even more enjoyable. A big thank you to Moha, our driver, who made our trip so pleasant with his kindness, professionalism and availability.

A complete tour

I really recommend the 4-day excursion to the Merzouga desert, it allows you to see as much as possible in 4 days! There's a lot of road but a lot of scenery to admire. We pass through the Atlas Mountains, villages, desert and end up in the Sahara. There are several stops with visits (~1h) along the way. It's really complete! Everything is taken care of except lunch and a guide (30dh). For lunch, we stop at tourist restaurants along the way, which are a little too expensive for my taste (the only thing I'd change about the tour).

A trip well worth taking!

Great 4-day tour with Addi as driver. The tour presented several key places in Morocco. The visits were very interesting and the scenery breathtaking. The pace was fairly fast, which allowed us to see a lot. I particularly enjoyed the bus ride, which allowed me to see the Moroccan countryside, and the passage through the Sahara desert, which was simply magical. Addi makes you feel safe, his driving is careful, he's punctual, and he's great company.

Awesome tour

A great experience! Our driver Mohammed was simply fantastic. He listens to his customers' needs and is always willing to go the extra mile to improve the quality of everyone's stay (he's also an excellent driver)! The tour itself was great too. The food was excellent and plentiful. The hotel was great, with a pool, bar and air conditioning in every room.

4-day excursion

We had a great trip from Marrakech to the Merzouga dunes. Our driver, Mehdi, got us where we needed to go and was very friendly. It's a long drive from Marrakech to the dunes (almost 10-11 hours), but the dunes are well worth it. On the outward journey, we quickly visited Ait Ben Haddou (a town used in many a film) and Ouarzazate (a labyrinth-like kasbah), and had a walk in the Todra Gorge (not to be missed!!! <3). Then, in the desert, we took a camel ride through some exceptional scenery, followed by free time in the dunes to watch the sunset (we got a real eyeful).

Great trip with a super driver!

This trip was great. The driver Moha did everything to make us feel comfortable. We stopped at several beautiful places to take photos (Gorges du Todgha, Ait Ben Haddou Todgha, Ait Ben Haddou, Ouarzazate...). The long journey seemed very short to us with this warm and friendly gentleman. As far as the company was concerned, everything was very well organized and we had no problems whatsoever. We'd do this trip again any time!
