What people are saying about Tinghir

Amazing experience! The tour was well organised. We stopped at some heritage sites and interacted with a number of guides all of who were very knowledgeable, communicative and polite. There was a good number of comfort stops. Special thanks to our driver Kiki, who was very helpful, caring and fun throughout the tour! The food was delicious and plentiful. Most meals consisted of three courses: an appetiser, entrée and a desert, plus a drink of ones choice. We spent the first night at Maison Amazigh Dades - a very comfortable, neat hotel. The owners were super hospitable and treated us with a performance of traditional Amazigh music. Recommend staying here if you are ever in the area. The desert trip was fun. We got to watch both the sunrise and the sunset. Desert nights are cold, luckily there were enough blankets in the camp to stack up and stay warm. One staff member even helped me look for my Vape Pen I lost near the camels among the dunes - crazy hospitality! Overall, great value!

I would recommend everyone to take this tour. We usually don't book tours in advance, we prefer to organize everything on the spot as soon as you arrive with the local guides. This time we booked through getyourguide with Andò travel Agency and it was the best choice ever. The minivan was comfortable and clean, the organization of the tour was perfect and the many hours of travel are repaid by the wonderful experience in the desert and in the surrounding places. Our driver Agouim was friendly and helpful, he told us stories of the Berber population and enlivened the journey with good music. I didn't appreciate the request for money from the Air Ben Haddou guide which is excluded (2.5 euros each), even if it is specified in the description, but I would have preferred a free offer. Our guide Moulay to discover Tinghir was professional, personable and AUTHENTIC. Excluding lunches cost 10/12 euros (salad, main course, dessert/fruit) and are really good.

Desert tour was awesome! Got to see Ait Ben Haddou on day 1 with a hotel that night. Had some loca Morrocan food & music. Day 2 is the highlight riding the camel through the desert & seeing the stars under a campfire. Dress warm for day 2 as it's cold at night! Day 3 is all driving. Our host & driver Abdou was great. Super friendly, very clear with breaktimes, & went out of his way to help one of the girls when her phone was stolen. Highly recommend anyone in Marrakech to take this tour.

This was a tour packed with stunning history and natural beauty and the overnight in the desert was, for us, an adventure.

Amazing experience. We met so many nice people along the way. Definitely worth it. Special thanks to our driver Ibrahim
