What people are saying about Agafay, Morocco

Highly recommend this excursion. We were a party of eight - 4 adults/4 teenagers and from start to finish everyone had a fantastic experience. The tour group was extremely accommodating from the start in picking us up at our hotel/villa that was a distance outside the medina. The camel ride was a thrill for all and the guides made us all feel comfortable throughout the entire ride. They were hospitable, kind and warm. They took videos and numerous photos without prompting and they truly were professional in nature. The ride after to experience the sunset and dinner was bumpy but provided the adventurous element that we were seeking. The hike to watch the sunset was phenomenal. We were greeted at the top with a beer!! Such a wonderful surprise. Dinner was delicious - we didn't have high expectations and everyone thought it was fantastic. The dance and fire shows were a total highlight. The owner and his staff were extremely accommodating and their energy was magnetic.

everything was perfect, super well organized, powerful and well maintained quads, clean and spacious tents, shower with hot water, super hearty and delicious meals. all the staff were very attentive, they even brought us very soft and very clean throws by the campfire. beautiful sunsets and sunrises. we even had the chance to go and drink tea with the family of a camp employee when we left...

Excellent trip, all very well arranged, and something I would definitely recommend as a unique experience in Marrakech. The team went out of their way to provide the best possible service, nice people, and some great food in the evening around the campfire. Thanks!

We stayed overnight in the Agafay desert from January 2nd to 3rd, 2023 and felt completely at home! The program was very well designed. The organizer Aziza and the staff were totally accommodating! I can warmly recommend this excursion to everyone!

It was a special night. Excellent organized. Super!!
