Simo, our guide was absolutely amazing. Very nice and easy going, excellent English. Very good driving skills. We felt really safe. He came and picked us up from our hotel at the exact time. The tour it's amazing. The journey from Fes to the desert is long but there are enough stops so you don't feel tired. We had all lunch at a very good restaurant recommended by Simo. The highlight is the night spent at the camp in Sahara desert with the local guys, who will cook for you fresh food and sing around the fire under the stars. The camp is safe. There is hot shower and toilet in the tents. In the morning, they will serve you a delicious breakfast. You will also ride the camel in the desert and the guys will take you photos. Everybody is friendly, helpful. Absolutely recommend this tour. You will never ever regret.

You will be neatly picked up at your accommodation. Then you drive through Merzouga through the sand dunes of the Sahara. Then you stop for tea with a Berber family. Then you drive through the other part of the Sahara, which was also beautiful, and stop at a mine where minerals are mined. Lunch was top notch, especially the berber pizza was delicious. You will also stop at a Senegalese (of origin) enclave nearby, where traditional music is played. Unfortunately there was no water in the lake (early March) so there was not much to see there. Our guide was a local boy, very friendly and knew a lot about the area and the culture.

This experience was amazing, starting from the pick up point, all along the road it was a pleasure to enjoy the views in a friendly and safe atmosphere! All the team was relaxed, polite, open- that means professionalism! Whole trip was pleasant, exprience in the desert- a special one!

That was such an amazing experience to explore Sahara. Camp in the desert there we spent night was super nice, hosts are friendly, traditional dinner and breakfast yammi-yammi, camels are a bit stubborn but we loved them anyway. Road to the desert wasn't easy but in really worth it, especially observing sunset from the dune. Special thanks to our driver who was very professional and attentive.

It was an exceptional tour, well organised and friendly tour guide
