      A very good experience for the price. Comfortable van. Enough time riding the dromedary. Nice guides and able m some stops in interesting places. Disappointed with the hotel and the dinner in the 1st night (the same hotel). Expect that the tents in the desert were shared with 4 people which was surprising for me.

      It was a long ride back to Marrakech but if you have the time it is 100% worth it.

      A must see trip when you visit marocco. We had a really nice driver which was called abdoulla who brought us save to all the spots. All the attractions had been interesting and unique. My most favorite was the Stop at the Berbers Tent and Camel ride. Everyone was super nice and warmly welcomed us. The pice was really value what we got. Thanks so much for good times!
