Great time! Great discoveries! Visit of the city of Ait ben Hadoud with the discovery of its history, many stops for beautiful photo spots. Pleasant and very pretty riad. Be careful, many hours of driving over 3 days and roads that are not always comfortable. But the final objective Merzouga, dessert of the Sahara is well worth it. Sunset and sunrise over the dunes, camel rides, possibility of quad biking. A night in a tent in the dessert that really changes from the ordinary. Thank you to our guides for this great experience.

Desert Family Tour is the best solution for an amazing and exclusive adventure, you fill to be in a big family all time, i m Italian and with this experience i ve meet a lot of nice people, i shared the minivan with Chile and Mexico , the resort into the desert was very beautiful, dinner with berbers and dance berber music around a nice fire under the star. Was everything perfect i reccomand this group to visit Sahara desert and all the small city around Marocco. Thank you very much.

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.

It was a very enjoyable experience except for the long ride back on the third day. The stay at the desert and the camel ride was great.

Great , just do it!!!! you will not be sorry! the guide was the super, locations aswell! an d teh atmosphere great!!!!
