What we particularly liked about the 4-day tour is that you can really enjoy the feeling of the desert by spending 2 nights in Merzouga. Most people (in our case, really everyone else) do the 3-day tours, which is why we were the only tourists in the camp from 6 a.m. (when the group left) until around 5 p.m. (when the next groups arrived). We liked the jeep tour with its relaxed program. Especially because the guide let us drive on the way back. In the camp, tea, water and lunch were even brought to us on the only shady dune. We spent the afternoon relaxing and sandboarding. In the evening it was immediately clear which guide we would be returning to Marrakech with in the morning. Overall, the tour was very well organized, guides and drivers were always very nice and helpful. It was an experience that we would always recommend.

Great jeep tour through the desert. Smooth communication with Hasan on what's app beforehand and after the tour. Our guide Hassan was very friendly and attentive. We visited an original berber family, old abandoned village,French quarry, panoramic spots for photos, an old African village and cars museum just outside Merzouga. We did another tour (desert overnight tour with camels) with the same company and it exceeded all our expectations. We would really like to recommend this tour provider as every detail in both tours was planned and well organised, and it is not overpriced.

We took these jeeps out to the dunes.What a riot our drivers were great. We raced each other over the desert and thru a few small settlements.They even stopped at a Berber area so we could visit and get into the tents and see how they lived.We did the sunset camel ride so racing back was a rush.No streetlights or town lights, just the stars and headlights. These guys can drive and all I can say is if we ever go back this is a must-do (again)

This trip was completely amazing! The camel ride at the sunset in the golden dunes was exceptional and our stay at the luxurious and comfortable camp was a delight! It was literally a dream come true to enjoy this beautiful views of the dunes from the camp! Our stay was incredible, thanks to Mustapha and the team, the food was authentic and delicious and our stay was amazing ! We will forever remember the calm of the Sahara.

One of the best trips I have ever been on, Mustafa and Hicham were great.
