“Moroccans dream in colours!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

What a country! What a tour!
You're never quite prepared for the heady mix of spices, cooking, herbs and colours, oh my god, the colours of Morocco.
Did a tour with Sahara Tours 4x4 from Casablanca-Essaouira-Marrakech-Ouarzazate-Merzouga-Fez-Chefchaeoun and it was a whirlwind and amazing romp through the country. From the Atlantic ocean in Essaouira, to the crazy cacophony of Djema al Fn'aa, the solitude of the oasis near Ouarzazate, the mighty Todra Gorges, the haunting Sahara at Merzouga, the mystical cedar forests of Azrou, the chaos of Fez's medina and the blue magic of Chefchaeoun.... I want to go back now!
Hameed, our driver, was excellent and bloody entertaining. Song of the tour was Shakira's Waka Waka, since the chorus begins with a homonym of my name - Sam. :-)
Fantastic locations, fantastic hotels and fantastic food provided. Thanks Hassan, for organizing this!

“Awesome trip from Marrakech to Fes through Merzouga”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

I went with one friend on the tour with our guide, Ahmed from Marrakech to Fes. Ahmed definitely knows so much about every part of the country we travelled for - he is like a walking Morocco encyclopedia. We travelled in a Hyundai van which he expertly and safely navigated through all different types of terrain. The hotel we stayed at near the gorges was better than I think was pictured on the website called Chez Pierre and it was very comfortable with great food! I think the highlight of the trip was definitely the Sahara/Erg Chebbi dunes. Riding out on the camels was an experience itself (I love camels!) and we spent the night out under the breathtaking blanket of stars (not even sleeping in the tents.)
Note when booking, I was a little concerned about the deposit through Western Union but don't worry, it is all legit and Hassan answered any questions I had promptly.
This was really a great and affordable tour and a good way to get to see more of Morocco.

“Great day in the Atlas Mountains”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

We booked a day tour to Ouarzazate and were pleased with the experience. We had both a guide, Said, and a professional driver for the day. Quite a lot of service for just two people on a day trip! The excursion is well planned, but we were consistently asked about preferences so Said could make adjustments for us. They did a good job picking stops, including lots of opportunities for pictures and a very nice lunch. Said graciously answered my husband’s endless stream of questions on Moroccan culture, politics and religion as we drove, so it was truly a great overview of Morocco. Said speaks 5 languages, including the excellent English he spoke with us.
This particular tour is an extended day driving with stops in the film studios and kasbah near Oarzazate. It passes through the green area outside of Marrakesh, winding through to the top of the mountains and then heading into the desert. There are stops in the film studios near Oarzazate. We particularly wanted to see the landscape outside of Marrakech, so the drive was exactly what we were seeking. If someone wanted a shorter, more active tour they should look at a different excursion from Sahara.

“Ourika Valley Private Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

We arranged this tour through email prior to out trip to Marrakesh, they were very professional and quick to respond making the booking process extremely straight forward. Our tour guide met us outside our riad where we walked to the square and drove from there. Both the guide and driver were very friendly and professional in addition to being highly knowledgeable about the city and surrounding areas and were welcoming to any questions we had. The drive to ourika provided incredible views and there were several routine stops made for us to take pictures, additionally our guide insisted that if we wanted to stop at any time to take a picture then all we needed to do was to say so. Once at the Berber village we began a hike up to the waterfall which was absolutely incredible. Expecting there to be some sort of path it came as a shock to us when we discovered that we were literally climbing up the rocks but this is what really made the trip the incredible experience it was. Despite the trek being quite challenging at times our guide made us feel safe by leading the way and stopping whenever needed. The hike went right up into the mountains which provided unbelievable views before heading back down into the Berber village where we stopped for lunch. Overall the experience was absolutely amazing and if you are planning to see Ourika Valley I cannot recommend a better way to do it than through this company!

“Ourika Valley Day Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

One of the best and most interesting experiences of my life. The tour guide met us at the hotel at 08.30, and we then drove to the Atlas mountains. The views were spectacular, and the driver stopped whenever we requested, which allowed us to get amazing photographs. The climb to see the waterfalls was brilliant and the tour guide was extremely friendly. He answered any questions we had and also educated us about the Berber lifestyle and Morocco in general. The tour guide reccomended a restaurant which served traditional Moroccan/Berber cuisine, and left us to have lunch before meeting us for the drive home. We arrived back in Marrakech at 5pm so we had a full day out! We paid just under 1500 dirham (just over £50 per head!) for the two of us for the private tour so it was excellent value for money! If you are planning an excursion when visiting Marrakech then I highly recommend Sararah Tours!
