The whole tour is very well planned. There were lots of stops on the way, so even the way back (11 hrs in the bus) was tolerable. The space between seats is very small though, so you can´t totally relax in the bus. Our guide Mustafa was nice, patient and helpful, as well as the guides at the places where we stopped for a sightseeing. Air-conditioning worked well (unlike in the buses of some other Sahara tour organisers). The hotel was nice and comfy, so were the tents at Merzouga. It was really nice to get a private tent just for the two of us. Riding a camel is shaky and a bit painful, partly because I am quite heavy, but the "camel guy" helped me a lot. Sahara was MAGICAL, especially sunset & sunrise, as well as looking at the sky over Sahara at night: millions of shining stars. There´s one thing that should have been mentioned to us in advance: you can´t take even a small suitcase to Sahara. You have to pack things in a separate back bag, so many of us had to re-pack in Merzouga.
We enjoyed at maxim every moment of this beautiful trip. We started from Marrakech our trip with guide Hicham and another 8 travellers. The van is very confortable - with clima-, our guide Hicham is a good driver, we feel in safe during at the trip. Furthermore, he is a very cool personality. He likes what he is doing. We receive a lot of information about Marocco, about berber's lifestyle, traditions. He always stopped, when we want to buy something, to go on toilet, or to make pictures. A lot of panoráma on this trip, to make huge photos,show by hím. He reccomended us the restaurants to eat. Morocco is an interesting and beautiful country. We are feeling wondered in the Sáhara, at Merzouga dunes. Camel ride is the most fine thing, at sunset and át sunrise too. The berber camp is something undescriptionable. Confort of 5 stars in a tent, good food, and berber show. I think he is a famous berber singer, because he plays on diferents instruments here... Thanks for U !
Simo, our guide was absolutely amazing. Very nice and easy going, excellent English. Very good driving skills. We felt really safe. He came and picked us up from our hotel at the exact time. The tour it's amazing. The journey from Fes to the desert is long but there are enough stops so you don't feel tired. We had all lunch at a very good restaurant recommended by Simo. The highlight is the night spent at the camp in Sahara desert with the local guys, who will cook for you fresh food and sing around the fire under the stars. The camp is safe. There is hot shower and toilet in the tents. In the morning, they will serve you a delicious breakfast. You will also ride the camel in the desert and the guys will take you photos. Everybody is friendly, helpful. Absolutely recommend this tour. You will never ever regret.
What a wonderful trip for an amazing price. This tour felt like a private tour, it was just the right sized group for it to be social but not overcrowded. The tour matched the description and exceeded our expectations. There is no getting away from it being a long journey, but the frequent stops make it manageable and it is totally worth it to see the Sahara! The stars are amazing!!!!! The accommodation was high quality with private tents and thick blankets - ideal for the chilly nights.
Exactly as advertised. You get to see several beautiful places and everything is coordinated quite well, but its alot of driving! Great value considering all that is included. Quality of food fluctuates depending on the day, but did have some good meals. If you are determined to see the a snip of the Atlas Mountain and the sandy parts of the Sahara this trip is worth it. Our main driver, Ali, was very kind and helpful and arranging pick-up/drop-off was easy.
