We had an amazing time with our guide, Abe, and driver Mohammad. Abe, who is not typically a guide was actually auditing the trip to ensure it met Ando's standards, and allowed us to have a private tour as my best friend Thomas and I were the only people who had booked the trip for those days. This transformed our tour into a private tour allowing us amazing opportunities. On nearly any topic we found Abe to be knowledgeable, eloquent and honest. Discussions ranged from the state of education, details on architecture and construction, the langua franca, geopolitics, agriculture, the ancient history of the Berber people and everywhere in between. The nights out in the desert were wonderful. The camel ride on the second trip to the dunes is about two or two and a half hours each way, and while it is beautiful it is very cold, which seems intuitively obvious now, but I was not prepared for. Abe generously lent me his coat, which eased the trip considerably, but 5:30AM is frigid.
Trip was very well organized. Punctual and with continous information on sights, safe driving and friendly service. Unlike many tours that force you on every shop along the road, we were now and then informed about possible stops for souvenirs and traditional crafts and decided to stop or not! Highly recommended!
The experience from beginning to end was amazing and all in thanks to our driver Mohamed, aka, Simo Oudaya. He was amazing, knowledgeable and a great driver who took such good care of me and my daughter. I highly recommend Simo Oudaya to anyone who wishes to take to amazing private 3 Day desert trip to Merzouga.
It was a unique experience, we got to know more about Morroco, the rich culture, the friendly people and the delicious food. We wouldn’t have it any other way. Salam made everything extra special. We felt like we were local Morrocans for a day. Indeed it was a memorable experience.
However road to that is bit too long for day trip, maybe it would be good idea to stay overnight in Quarzazate
