Nice experience 1-2/3/2023, the driver was kind, funny and talkative, we lived a unique experience under the stars in the desert. Unluckily i didn't like the fact that the berber guide in the berber village took us in a scarves shop and he said that a scarf was needed for the desert and we felt forced to buy one in that shop, i'd prefer to feel free to have the choice where to buy it.

Very good adventure! We really enjoyed staying in The Sahara. One night was enough as there wasn't any shower and the breakfast was served with old bread eaten the night before. Lack of hygiene is missing. Despite this, the guides were very friendly!

Tour molto bello nel complesso, alcune cose non positive. Nel dettaglio: molte le ore in macchina (4h) ma panorama favoloso, strade in montagna con molte curve (per chi soffre l'auto, munitevi di medicine), villaggio molto caratteristico. Attenzione: entrata al villaggio gratuita, non devono chiedervi soldi! La guida ha insistito perché comprassimo le sciarpe da metterci come turbanti poi nel deserto: non fatevi fregare o portatevela da casa. A Ouarzazate la visita al museo del cinema (3€) è carina ma il set è piccolino, non è lo studios quello più famoso che non è previsto nel tour. Attenzione: vi chiederanno mance ovunque, dalla guida ai cammellieri. Molto bello il momento nel deserto, cammellata di oltre un'ora al tramonto e all'alba 20min. Accampamento nel deserto molto spartano, una vera esperienza unica ( p.s. non ci sono prese della corrente). Portatevi acqua.
