I had a fantastic time in Rissani with Mohammed as my guide. At first, I hadn't planned on spending much time in Rissani. I had spent a week in Merzouga and the Sahara, and I had originally planned on taking the morning bus out of Rissani to Fez. Some people like taking the night bus, but I didn't want to... More

It's just hills of sands, and it could be this unbelievable attractive, the view of sunset was definitely much better than the sunrise, but it wouldn't hear to experience the sunrise as well, because the dawn was equally amazing, with stars and the moon over your head in a pitch dark desert. you can not top that feeling.

The trip to the Sahara over the Atlas Mountains may have been long and at times tedious but at your destination the camels are waiting for you to climb aboard and trek you over the dunes to a sunset that is one in a million. After your trek back to your private tent complete with western toilet and shower, two... More

I was with a tour group and we spent 3 days/2 nights in the Sahara. It was beyond my expectations. We stayed in tents (equipped with toilets and shower) that were very nice. The first night we had a bit of a sandstorm and woke in the middle of the night with everything covered in sand. Don't take anything you... More

We had stupidly booked a week in Marrakech staying in a Riad. Two nights in Marrakech would be enough. The hustling and begging was relentless. What we really did enjoy was our escape to the Sahara that we booked on spur of the moment in Marrakech and was well worth the money. Our mini bus driver was great and gave... More

A place that has to be on many bucket lists and well worth going to. A camel ride is one way of getting in but not very comfortable and although your on them for an hour, with all the weaving back and fore you have not actually gone in very far. The other way is to hire a quad if... More
