desert and berber culture!

This was the trip of a lifetime! ! We had a fabulous time! ! Hmida, the guide, was amazing and Mohamed, the driver, was great too! They always made sure we had everything we needed and I really appreciated that they waited for our Riad's staff to pick us up when they dropped us off. Hmida was humorous and knowledgeable and made sure we had a good time! !

The trip of a lifetime

What a fantastic trip from start to finish. Our tour guide Ishmael was simply brilliant, he was so welcoming and taught us so much about Morocco. The first night in the desert was amazing, the accommodation was beautiful, the food was incredible. The music in the desert made the experience so much more enjoyable.

Best experience ever

What an incredible experience. The whole tour from start to finish was superbly organized and one of the best experiences we've ever had. The desert camp and hotel were incredible. We were able to ride camels for over an hour and a half, do a bit of sand boarding and enjoy an evening with the local nomads dancing and playing music. The camp is luxurious and super comfortable and the sunsets and sunrises are superb

5-day trip from Fez

We did a 5-day trip from the fes to the desert, a great experience for me and my friend. We were able to see so many different landscapes on the way to (and from) Merzouga, I think it's a must for anyone traveling to Morocco.

Amazing authentic experience!!!

Amazing experience! Very good tour guides, very friendly, professional and always checking that everything was perfect. It was a very original and authentic tour. Hassan was a really nice guy, a good driver and also a very good guide. We had a good laugh together. He knew a lot about the culture and made sure we had an authentic experience. I would definitely recommend this desert tour to anyone visiting Morocco. It's a MUST DO! Thank you very much MDT

A superb tour of Fez

This was a brilliant 5-day trip from Fez to Marrakech with Hamid, an excellent driver and guide. On the first day, Hamid asked us if we would like to interrupt our journey by calling at his parents' house for lunch! We did. His family were incredibly kind and welcoming and served us a delicious meal, prepared that morning especially for us!
