What people are saying about Tinghir

We have just returned from a 4-day trip to the Merzouga desert with our guides Hassan and Said, very good people who made our trip very pleasant to the rhythm of Berber music (although we could choose another music if we wanted). The desert landscapes are beautiful, the accommodations very different from each other and in general it has been a satisfactory experience. Driving in Morocco is quite different from European countries, Said and Hassan handle the roads well. We recommend this trip for those who like the desert landscape and don't mind spending several hours a day in the car :)

Incredible experience! A real discovery of the very exotic Moroccan hinterland. The organization of the trip is perfect and the activities carried out are very interesting and varied. The restaurants are of very good quality (special recommendation for the homestay lunch and the buffet) and the accommodation very comfortable. Certainly the car journeys are long but that is part of the roadtrip experience. Our carriage was very spacious and pleasant, which made the time pass quite quickly. Activity to do with your eyes closed that will really make you discover Morocco, I highly recommend.

What a life experience! Me and my girlfriend had the best local tour ever with Aziz Talaoul, having the opportunity to discover Marocco and the Berber culture with locals through all the 5 senses. Even the food was delicious, in particular the lunch we had in an authentic Berber house (“chez L’habitant”) with Hicham and his family around At Tamdakhate. We would totally recommend it to all the adventurers who want to go back at home richer of experience and full of great memories!

This excursion is a must! The sumptuous landscapes of the Atlas valleys alternate with the historic Kasbahs and Ksars! We will never be able to thank our driver enough, Houssine, exceptional, attentive to our needs and of an unforgettable kindness. Thanks also to our guide Ali who made us discover the Toudgha valley. All this to arrive in the desert, fantastic experience for which we recommend the upgrade to a luxury camp. To do again!!

Great experience! Very nice journey with magnificent landscapes all along to arrive in the desert. This formula allows us to enjoy without worrying about logistics. The hotels are very correct and the staff always welcoming. The night in the desert is unforgettable. A big thank you to our driver Aziz Talaou, efficient, always in a good mood and ensuring that our experience is the best possible.
