    What a wonderful trip for an amazing price. This tour felt like a private tour, it was just the right sized group for it to be social but not overcrowded. The tour matched the description and exceeded our expectations. There is no getting away from it being a long journey, but the frequent stops make it manageable and it is totally worth it to see the Sahara! The stars are amazing!!!!! The accommodation was high quality with private tents and thick blankets - ideal for the chilly nights.

It was the best experience of my life! Earlier in the day they contact me via whatsapp asking if I needed any help getting to the hotel. The hotel where we waited for the sun to go down was excellent, it had a swimming pool available and the rooms and bathrooms for taking a shower and getting ready were very well equipped and beautiful, It was the same hotel that served a excellent breakfast in the next day. In the desert, the experience was incredible, almost 2h riding a camel with an excellent guide telling us the desert's curiosities, we watched the sunset playing sandsurfing. The camp was beautiful, well decorated tents equipped with metal beds, very big and good bathrooms. The food was traditional from Morocco and was delicious, there was also mint tea, enough water for everyone and a beautiful performance of Berber songs!The next day we watched the sunrise from a beautiful dune and rode a camel again for over an hour. I couldn't expect anything better, thank you so much!!

We spent 4 excellent days in the company of Haziz and Hassan during our stay towards Merzouga. They always made sure to best meet our expectations as well as our comfort during our stay in Morocco (very good choice of hotels and restaurants).

The guy is been simply Excellent! He basically knew every thing about every corner of Morocco. His mame is Mustafa, for a real experience ask for him. Everything was amazing and despite the long hours of drive he was never getting tired. I learned so much from him and he's been helpful with everything. I loved it ❤️

Great excursion! The guide is friendly and welcoming. Sleeping places in the camp are comfortable. The dinner for us was very big and delicious. I am glad that in the morning they are taken to the Kasbah, where you can take a shower and have a quiet breakfast!
