    A unique experience, breathtaking landscapes and beautiful encounters. The guides, for the most part, were friendly. The last night at the camp was exceptional for both the hospitality and the meals served. Small negatives, the lunch is not included in the price (no problem on that)

    I joined this 3 days desert tour from Marrakech. It was good! it was a shared group from different nationalities. we met new friends. The scenery was great! The accommodation was ok. The bus was comfortable & the driver was very nice too. The overnight near dunes was the highlight of the trip! The camel ride was very funny part!

They take you to places you would of never gone on your own an they do all the planning. The accommodations are really cool. For the cost it is amazing deal an you get to meet a lot of nice people! My favorite part of the trip.

    This trip is great if you want a full experience of the desert and experience the incredible views and sights on the way there. It felt like it included everything you want to see along the way and everything was well planned and thought out. Our guide Ayoub couldn’t have been nicer and seemed genuinely excited to show us a good time. Great guides, great locations, great food, great accommodation. I got everything I wanted out of this trip and more. It truly exceeded my expectations. Really really recommend!
