Even before our adventure had even begun, Hassan had arranged for our guides to pick us up from the airport and drop us off at our riad before our excursion actually started the following day. Mohammed and Ibrahim were two of the most amazing guides we could have ever asked for. They made us feel so comfortable throughout the entire trip and went out of their way to make us happy. Mohammed even left my wife sit in the front passenger seat for a leg of our drive so that she could take better pictures of the scenery!
Even though we only booked a quick 3 day trip to the Merzouga desert, our guides patiently took us to stops along the way that allowed us to see amazing sights and meet amazing people. I loved that they stopped at a few women's co-operatives for them to demonstrate how they make argon oil products and rose plant products. It's always re-assuring to experience such a progressive country. They stopped along so many landmarks and expertly explained the significance of each place. Mohammed's English was amazing and we had great conversations with him throughout the trip.
We had a short stay at Chez Pierre - which was such a beautiful stop over. The food was absolutely amazing. We then arrived at Merzouga, where we went given a room to leave our luggage and shower before our camel ride into the desert. The desert itself was one of those life experiences that you will talk about forever. All of the Berber guides that gathered there were so friendly and cheerful. They played some songs for us during dinner and were very entertaining. We had a 12 hour drive the following day back to Marrakesh and our guides got us there, safely, while we napped for most of the trip back.
We consider Mohammed and Ibrahim family and can't thank them enough for sharing their stories and time with us. Even after our long journey back to Marrakesh, they dropped us off to the airport the next morning at 5:30am so we could catch our flight. Even with our short meet up with Hassan at the Merzouga desert, he was incredibly friendly and his only concern was whether or not we were having a good time. Didn't even mention the fact that we still owed the balance of our money! I hope he and this company continues to succeed. You will not find a better company to take care of you and show you the sights and sounds of Morocco.
