The overall experience was nice, I would say that the best part of our tour was our guide Elias he is just Amazing…however we find that the time spend at the camp in the Dunes in Merzouga was too short less then 12h they rush you out of there hassling you about getting your luggage ready and it’s not even 7:30am, we had paid allot of money to be private and yet they harassed us to leave because of another couple that had nothing to do with us. The point of paying extra and going private is that you don’t have to worry about some other couples schedule, so the time at the tent in the Sand Dunes was way to short. The food gets repetitive at all the lunch and dinner spots. I also would of liked for the car that we had to have been of a newer year has my seatbelt was broken. Considering the price that we pay.

This trek is an excellent way to discover the wonders of Morocco through the Atlas to the desert. The beauty and diversity of the landscapes are striking. Our travel conditions were excellent, the welcome remarkable, the choice of typical Riads and good taste. You have to plan for long hours of driving but really worth it. The locals are lovely and dinner at Isham's was a pure delight! We opted for a private trip (only one driver, it would have taken two I think for safety) very pleasant and the group that accompanied was chosen according to our nationalities, a great meeting! The tour was done in English by choice, the explanations a bit brief however, in a language not quite mastered. An unforgettable memory! Highly recommended.

Great stay with Abdul! Very nice and a very pleasant ride! We had a great stay in very friendly Riads and the food was very good. Lots of driving, but we were able to enjoy the landscapes with traditional music that Abdul introduced us to. I recommend this excursion for the beauty of the landscapes and the night in the desert.
