Morocco Desert Tour

What an incredible trip, Hamid and the team were so friendly and organized. It was surreal! I hope that everyone can have this experience once in their lives; everything I experienced will stay with me forever. One tip: go with an open mind, knowing that it's a very different culture, with peculiar customs and foods. I guarantee you'll enjoy every second of it. This team is worth 10 camels.

A wonderful trip

It was a trip that exceeded all expectations, from the colors of the markets in Marrakech, to looking at the starry sky in the middle of the desert, I just have to thank Hamid and the whole team that works with him, they are always ready to help us with whatever we need, they are super attentive, they are practical, they are simple, team 5⭐. Thank you very much

An amazing Tour

I was a bit wary of the trip, not least because we went 1 month after the earthquake, but I decided to take a chance with my girlfriend. We found a team that was very helpful and always concerned about giving you the best possible experience. As soon as we arrived at the airport, they were waiting for us. We were lucky enough to have the best guide, Mohammed, who called us bacalhau and sardines

Amazing desert experience

The trip was great, Mohammed was the best guide we could have had, always attentive and concerned to give us details of every step we would take. On this trip I was able to meet wonderful people, experience incredible moments and I will definitely recommend it to anyone who asks me about it.
