We spent 5 wonderful days with their tour. It is the highlight of our trip in Morocco. Our driver Sala was nice enough to pull over every time I want to take a photo (which is like every couple of hundreds of meters). On the way we stopped over to a lot of places including the famous Ait Ben Haddou,... More

We spent a great night in one of the permanent tent of Bivouac sous les etoiles. It is extremely comfortable, the beds are covered in many blankets that keep you warm in the cold desert night, and the dinner was delicious. The best was seating at night with the guides and cook playing music under the star. the desert is... More

We spent three days with this organization. We were incredibly disappointed by the poor value, service and the dangerous driving of this organization. The food was poor, the focus was on up-selling items and the historical explanations were non-existing. Stay away!

We were very disappointed with our experience. The driver spoke poor French or English and had no historic or geological understanding of the surroundings. Most of all organized stops on our drive to the desert were commercially focused (e.g. selling Argan oil 50% more expensive than anywhere else; selling jewelry etc.) and this despite having repeatedly expressed our clear objection....

We spent 2 nights by the Erg Chigaga dunes and the beauty of the location, great conditions of the camp, delicious food, cleaness, solar energy, and caring staff made our experience unforgetable. The Sahara desert is a magical place of peaceful silence where starry nights, fire, and traditional nomadic music can be enjoyed. The services of this company were outstanding,... More

If you want to see some of the "real" Morocco go with Bivouac Sous Les Etoiles. They are a very organized locally run tour company who will cater your excurision to what you want to see and do and will pick you up from anywhere in Morocco. They have very competent drivers, and knowledgeable, respectful, discrete and friendly guides. Hassan,... More

I had read a very good review about "Bivouac sous les Etoiles" on someone's personal website, and decided to contact Hassan by email. He was very nice and helpful, and so I booked a one night bivouac at his tent camp close to the Erg Chigaga. I paid a 20% advance to a bank account in France and we were... More
