Amazing Tour - was expecting the desert to be the stand out highlight, but actually everything along the way was also incredible. Multiple stops throughout the first 2 days, all well organised and interesting. Incredible views of the Atlas Mountains to go with the incredible desert experience. The 3rd day had very few stops and was essentially a straight drive from desert to Fes with only toilet/lunch break, but this is probably what is required to reach Fes at a decent time. My one bit of advice, that is not a criticism of the tour itself, female travellers should be a bit wary of the berber men in the desert village (where you stay on the second night). They did come across a bit leery and did everything they could to surround themselves with the women in the group, ignoring the men. Nothing more than this, but definitely something to keep in mind.

What an INCREDIBLE and LIFE CHANGING adventure. Not only were the people on our tour (6 of us total) incredible, our guide was exceptional. We visited some small villages on the way to the desert and back, as well as met some incredible Berber people. The transportation was professional and clean, did not feel unsafe at all. The drive is quite far from Fes (8 hours one way) but you cross two mountain ranges with PLENTY of stops for photos and bathroom breaks. Everything was well worth it and I am so happy I booked with this tour, and not with one that takes 15-20 people on the same bus. I give this my highest recommendation and really encourage you to take a leap of faith. You are going to learn and discover so much here, it's 10000% worth it! Thank you so much for a great time, cannot wait to come back in the near future!

This trip was great! The scenery along the route was beautiful, the many stops were unique and fun, and the dunes of Erg Chebbi were amazing. Riding the camels was so fun and my pictures are beautiful. The hotel on day 1 was better than expected. The luxury tent was great but I definitely could’ve survived in the normal tent. Had a van full of about 15 people from all around the world. Great to meet and hang out with fellow fun travelers. I definitely recommend this trip!

The driver was very friendly. Very good driving skills and good french/english/Spanish speaking. Driver arrived on time at our hotel and dropped us off on time. We had 4 hrs to roam through the city. The total driving time was more like 3.5 hrs each way.

great tour, knowledgeable, present and kind guide. To try!
