Amazing excursions 

Hassan, our driver, was really pleasant and accommodating, and he took care of all of our particular demands and wants. The automobile was really comfy, with plenty of legroom. The food was excellent. During the road trip, Hassan led us to a Berberian town and showed us incredible views. The camel ride was great and went around 1,5 to 2 hours one way, including a halt to watch the sunset and go sand surfing, have fun, take photos, and so on. There was a bonfire after dinner with Berberian music and dances. Warm, cuddly blankets were provided in the tents. We rode our camels back to the Village from the camp in the morning, witnessing the lovely sunrise over the Moroccan desert. Hassan was making stops on the way back to make the long return trip as comfortable as possible. This is a journey that I strongly suggest! I typically travel alone and take public transportation, but this time it was much better to go on an adventure. Hassan and the other guides also speak a variety of languages! On the desert, the Berber guide speaks English, French, Arabic, and even Spanish. Thank you very much! 💖

Incredible Experience of 3 days tour from Marrakech

This is the only trip you'll ever need if you just have 3 days from Marrakech to merzouga. It's incredible how much you can see in such a short time - this isn't just a "Sahara desert trip," but a trip of the region. We traveled across snow-capped mountain ranges (the Atlas Mountains), passed through biblical-looking communities, hiked through canyons, and, yep, romped in the Sahara. We also had the good fortune of having two of the world's top guides with us. Hassan and Aziz are two of the sweetest people you'll ever meet. They were vivacious, knowledgeable, and welcoming. If it hadn't been for them, the vacation would not have been as enjoyable. Thank you so much for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
