We had arranged a 10 day tour with Bivouac sous les Etoiles going from Marrakesh via Ait ben Haddou to Todra Gorge over the Jbel Saghro massivs to Zagora and then the desert and back via Foum Z'guid to the Finnt oasis ending in Essaouira via the tizi-n-tichka pass. And it is probably the most magical thing we have ever... More

Thank you Hassan for such a beautiful circuit… Bivouac sous les etoiles listens to your demands and make it happen. In fact, they even made it better than I could ever have dreamt of. This year for my 40th birthday, I wanted to organise a special holiday with my friends… my wish was to explore some of the hidden spots... More

Be prepared for going back to the basics in life. Great host and unforgettable experience. For us from the tropical countries it was very cold in Sahara in the month of December.. Some New Yorker guy went jogging in the freezing dawn, must be like home to him. Good food, basic but sufficient. Plenty of rocket salad otw to the... More

My partner and I made it down to M'Hamid after dodging floods on the main road. The operator is located on the left street at the roundabout/fork on the right. We arrived for our 1300 tour time, but they had us wait a few hours before we left. We had lunch in the restaurant next door and they came to... More

Friendly helpful, and did their best. Could have had a chattier guide but he still showed us the sights. The camp is well isolated, and just inside the dunes. They don't accept card payments and there is NO CASH MACHINE untill you get to a town that is 1h30 away....

If you are in Morocco, it is definitely something you must do. All the staff are so nice and always there to answer your questions. They love their job and that's what makes it beautiful. The desert is so nice and you have to do that once in your life !

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!
