We had stupidly booked a week in Marrakech staying in a Riad. Two nights in Marrakech would be enough. The hustling and begging was relentless. What we really did enjoy was our escape to the Sahara that we booked on spur of the moment in Marrakech and was well worth the money. Our mini bus driver was great and gave... More

A place that has to be on many bucket lists and well worth going to. A camel ride is one way of getting in but not very comfortable and although your on them for an hour, with all the weaving back and fore you have not actually gone in very far. The other way is to hire a quad if... More

We had to drive over packed earth to get to the place where we mounted camels to go into the desert. It was a bit of a rough haul. It was not a very long trip by camel, which was really just fine since none of us were used to using those muscles required to straddle the camel. When we... More

I had no idea what a diverse and amazing country this would be. Friendly people, charming cities, great food, beautiful ! Never once felt unsafe. The Moroccans are wonderful. Don't miss this beautiful country!

We saw a full moon rise from the backs of our camels on the way to the camp in the Sahara. The camp guys were... More

I have done alot of world traveling. I cannot seem to ever get enough. My trip to Hasilabied(various spellings) was defintely a priceless moment for me. I wanted a trip that was full of culture, beauty, music, food, and serenity of the desert. To this day when I look at the photos, I still think the sand does not look... More
