What people are saying about Ouarzazate

Everything was better than my expectation. Hassan, our driver was very friendly and professional. He picked us up at the hotel on time and also drop us to our hotel in Fez. He helped us a lot and very flexible. The car was comfortable and we were very lucky to get kind of a private tour because no other tourists booked the same date as us. The hotel was very nice and clean. The landscapes along the way is incredible and our driver showed us local restaurants for lunch. The highlight was the sunset in the desert and riding the camel. Simply unforgettable. It's a very long journey with the car but I loved it and already used to this kind of trip. The camp in the desert was also clean, we got our own bathroom. But it could be very cold at night (we visited in February) so bring warm clothes!

Salem was the best guide! We saw so much more of Morocco than we expected to see, thanks to him. The car rides in between Marrakech and Merzouga, Merzouga and Fes are quite long, but the landscape and sites in between are gorgeous which helps make the time pass. The actual desert portion of the trip was INCREDIBLE, a definite must-do if you are coming to Morocco. I only wish we stayed one more day in the desert to offset the time in the car.

Simply marvellous! Abdorahman is highly professional, knowledgeable and very reliable
