We were initially skeptical of joining a large group tour, but our experience with Hassan and Mustapha was excellent. There were many interesting stops to break up the long drive out, including stunning villages, ruins, and views. We went on this trip to see the desert and didn’t care about the other stops but now consider all the three days and the other destinations on the way very worth the time.

To give a complete picture, we’ll also report the few downsides. Our stops for lunch were disappointing (we paid 100dh per person for extremely mediocre food) but I don’t think you’ll find better on a group tour like this. The first night hotel didn’t have much charm, but was perfectly fine (with pool & view, the food surprisingly fine). The one stop we didn’t appreciate was at a scarf & dress store, where we were pressured into a gimmicky photo with costumes (but no pressure to buy).

The dunes were breathtaking, camels were very friendly, and we had a few hours to walk around the desert and get away from the group, which was nice. The desert camp was simple but very nice and we had quite good food for dinner. The van was very high standard with comfortable seats, AC, and WiFi. Hassan and Mustapha are very well organized, full of energy, very friendly, and knowledgeable (Mustapha is from Merzouga and this knows the area very well). We rented quads in the morning for 500dh (for two people to share) to cruise through the desert during sunrise, which was a lot of fun as well, so might be something to consider (one has to ask the guides the night before). However, riding back on the camels to enjoy the sunrise also looked like great fun.

Our group was mostly 20 somethings, a few couples, a few friend groups, half Americans and otherwise quite diverse, everyone friendly. Our van was ~15, and we traveled with 2 other vans, altho the guided portions were split up so it didn’t feel too crowded.

So, all in all we 100% recommend this tour, it was a great experience and excellent value for money.

Español:

Este tour estuvo fenomenal e inolvidable. Viaje con mi mamá y nuestro guía fue Abdessalam. Abdessalam nos llevó a todos los lugares y más. Siempre estuvo a tiempo y aunque ciertas personas llegaban tarde, el guía siempre cumplía con su tiempo. Nuestro grupo tenía personas que no hablaban español y otras que no hablaban inglés y Abdessalam traducía cada cosa que decía el y los de más sin problema. El tour nos hizo sentir especial y nos trataron como reinas, nuestro guía y los otros guía explicaban todo una y otra vez hasta que lo entendiéramos sin quitarse la sonrisa. Al final de todo, no quería que se terminara el tour. Tengo 21 años y se que las memorias que creí con el guía y todo lo que nos enseñó me quedara por muchos muchos años. Gracias al tour y a Abdessalam sentí que verdaderamente conocí Africa, Islam, la cultura de los beréber, la comida marrueca, y Morocco.

English:

This tour was phenomenal and unforgettable. I traveled with my mom to Morocco and our guide was Abdessalam. He took us to every single place listed on the tour itinerary and even to places we saw and asked to go to on the way. Abdessalam was always on time and even though some people in our tour group would arrive late, Abdessalam would always make up for it. He even translated anything that he said or others asked of him for those in our group that spoke different languages. The tour made my mom and I feel safe and special, our guide and even other guides would explain things to us until we fully understood and they never lost their smile. As the tour was coming to an end, I didn’t want to leave our guide and tour group. I am 21 and I know the memories I created here will last a lifetime. Thanks to the tour and our wonderful guide Abdessalam, I know I’ve experienced Africa, Islam, the Berber culture, the Moroccan cuisine, and Morocco.

We booked this tour online as it was cheap for what we wanted to experience. Our driver, Youssef, was super engaged with entertaining the entire group and always tried to make sure everyone was having a good time. Youssef also acted as a guide whilst on the minibus. The highlight of our trip was dromedary ride through the Saharan desert dunes. In 3 days we managed to see a lot of things and experience a bit of the Berber life. I totally recommend this trip, but don’t expect tasty staying in 4 star hotels, tasty food, or glamping in the dessert. However, Youssef has Wi-fi in his minibus…a great perk along with Berber music!

My experience on the 3 day desert tour was 10/10. Me and my boyfriend went with 2 other friends . The trip consisted of a car journey with several sight seeing stops along the way. From Marrakesh all the way to Merzouga, a long trip, but our guide Youssef made sure that we had plenty of stops along the way, bathroom breaks and food breaks on a 9hr long drive. Which in the end, did not feel like a long journey.
The experience overall was like no other. It was filled with so many sights to see and a trip I would definitely recommend for people seeing morocco for the first time.
Small expenses for the lunches that are not included in the package, at most spending at least 10€ for each meal which is not bad and pretty reasonable.
The highlight of the journey, the trip to Sahara was amazing and a once in a lifetime experience, camel riding, watching the sunset and sunrise in the desert.

I went with my partner on this trip and we had an amazing time! Our driver and guide Ayoub was excellent - very friendly, enthusiastic, and kept us well informed. The first day was packed with very interesting activities which made the journey out to Merzouga go by quickly! The hotel on the first night was great, nice & clean rooms and the pool was very welcome. On the second day we had a wonderful guide show us through the Gorges du Todhra, and through his Berber village. The cooperative making rugs at this village showed us the techniques used, and then presented several different styles, which we were then welcome to buy (although these were not pushed onto us as happens a lot in the city markets!) The camel trek was an amazing experience, and the camp was good too - large tents with a full sized double bed in ours, with shared showers and toilets. After a late dinner at 10pm we gathered round a fire outside and had a great evening of Moroccan drumming and dancing. An early start to see the sunrise on the last day made the long bus ride home perfect for catching up on sleep.

Thank you Ayoub and all the other guides for making this an unforgettable experience!

Whilst the price is worth what's included, I'd have to caution people when booking this, primarily for safety concerns. Whilst sandboarding in the desert, my friend suffered a concussion. This was because there was no training, safety or supervision which is usually required for sandboarding and similar activities. The nearest hospital was hours away and not suitable for internationals- imagine if the injury was worse. All this could be avoided if there was better management therefore I'd recommend paying more with more credible companies if you value your safety. The Atlas mountain trip also is something you can do yourself and the one day excursion is better worth your time

Hassan and Hassan were excellent. (both the guide and driver were named Hassan). This company provided a well organized and professional trip experience. The time spent in the large, comfortable van was long but well worth it. Ait Ben Haddou was interesting and picturesque. The hotel the first night was very reasonable and was a great place to see the sunset. The Todra Gorge walk was pretty and informative. The Berber village carpet/rug makers portion was informative and the prices for an authentic hand made rug were reasonable. The hour long camel trek through the towering sand dunes to our overnight camp was memorable. Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate to give us a very pretty sunset over the dunes (too cloudy). The tents in the camp were acceptable and the meal and music were good. The early rise was difficult due to the late night before but was worthwhile to try to catch a nice sunrise in the dunes on camelback. The drive back to Marrakech the last day was very long (as to be expected). You spend a lot of time on the road with this excursion but you come away feeling that you got to see a good slice of Morocco in a short time. We truly enjoyed the varied, wonderful group of people that were on the tour with us as well. My family of four (2 adult children with us) had a great time. I can highly recommend this tour and this company (we did 2 trips with them and both were well organized).

I tried to see all the reviews, all the pictures I could, previous to booking, to make sure this was the right tour to do. Well, this experience knocked my socks off! Every little details is thought through to please every demand. The right amount of stops during the trip, interesting too. The places we visit are surreal! But definitely, the cherry on top of the cake is for sure once you get to Merzouga and start making your way to the desert camp on a camel. There is a stop half way through where you can do sandboard and just chill taking in the amazing subset in the middle of the Sahara. The remain part is done at night which is just magical! Riding a camel in the desert with almost no light other than the trillion stars that you could never perceive anywhere else. Just stunning! Arriving at the camp you get to join the other groups too and join in on a typical Berber party with drums and fire pit. Amazing to get to know everyone at dinner and then go on to the party till you feel exhausted and get to your own tents. The rise is early at 5am for breakfast. And then another camel ride till you exit the desert (you can take the quad bikes instead and meet whoever want to go on a camel after). This was something else, to see the sunrise in the highest dune they could find and the fun of driving the quad in such a setting, was really spectacular!

Book this, seriously! 6th time I am Marrakesh and this surpassed anything I did, ever!

And the tour guide, Ibrahim is super fun! High five to him for his patience with everyone and the good mood through it all, as I bet he does this far too often! Hahaah

Really satisfied. The route is explained in detail in the advertisement, so I will not be here to repeat it. I can assure you that what is written on the internet has been faithfully respected. Here are the other reasons why I gave it 5 stars:

• The places visited are very suggestive. They deserve to be seen at least once.

• Abdelkhalek (our driver) is very friendly. We stopped every time we asked him, he showed us some good and cheap places to have lunch or shop.

• The Van is new, equipped with air conditioning.

• the hotel exceeded my expectations: friendly and helpful staff, 2 swimming pools, air conditioning in the room, excellent breakfast.

• The desert camp is very beautiful, again friendly and fun staff. After dinner they light a bonfire, and the guests play, sing and dance with them. The food was good.

• The price for this type of 3-day tour is currently the cheapest I have found. Local agencies also offer significantly higher prices. What's more, here the whole journey is explained in great detail, and you have many reviews. Be careful if you decide to buy an excursion directly when you are in town.

The only "negative" note, in hindsight I would have stayed longer in the desert. I recommend spending a little more and booking the 5-day tour, if you have the opportunity.

Great guides, I can recommend Mustafa and Hasan very much! They speak multiple languages and are very kind and funny.
For preparing, I recommend toilet paper and cash. There is enough water to buy. Prepare for a longer drive, last day back is 11h, but unavoidable. It is so worth it! They will guide you to a restaurant with a menu for 100Dirham every day for lunch. Water, Snacks and so on can be bought in breaks.
