Sahara Services

I have a question about Sahara Services, M'hamid. We want to make a tour with this organisation from Marrakech to M'hamid and into the desert. They made us a good offer. Now I read some bad reviews on TA about Sahara Services. Did anyone have good experience with them? Or do we need to take another organisation. We are with 4 adults and two teenagers.

Thank you for your reply.

I took an overnight trip to Erg Chigaga with them in November 2006 by 4x4. Paid I think something like 45 pounds each (2 people). No complaints at all, really enjoyed it, no problems. The camp even had flushing toilets!

45 pounds for how many days/ nights? was it an all- inclusive trip( food, accommodation?) If you could provide the itinerary it will help other travellers.

45 pounds is really cheap even travelling with others

I seem to recall it was 44 pounds each at the exchange rate back then (16DH to 1GBP). Got to Mhamid about 10.30 am, booked the trip. They went and got some supplies and we headed out in a 4x4, 2 hrs to Erg Chigaga with 1 stop. Got to the camp, had a lunch - sardines and salad (fatal move to eat the salad, messed up my guts badly and in 13 visits to Morocco that has never happened before). Had a few hours free then we got a nice dinner. Sleep then up at sunrise and then got a decent breakfast too. The headed back to Mhamid by a different route. very satisfied with it.

The price that was mentioned! stil under -talk- i would suggest to get there and book your holiday while you get there; that's the classic way ! in nowday we can't even recognize/belive what's negative/positive reviews are!!! tour operator are cheating over TA.

Hi Lauren,

How was your tour with Sahara Services? I'm trying to do the same one, but they are asking for a 150 euro deposit. Did they ask you for a deposit over e-mail?

They asked us to send an account in advance, 200 Euros or we could communicate to them our Credit Card Number. We did the last thing. I sent my credit card number and that was enough. We paid the amount the first day. We had a wonderful trip. Our driver was Hamid. Ask for him. He was great!!

have a great time!
