In February 2020 was my fourth journey in Marocco since 2017 when came the first time in this beautiful country. Every time that was a group tour in different areas of Marocco.

May 2018-Agadir, Essaouira, Paradis Valley, mountains & ocean, oasis, argantrees, goats. September 2019-guite different-cities on north of Marocco - Tangier, Chefchauen, Fes, Meknes, Rabat, Casablanca. February 2020-Agadir,southern Marocco, West Sahara, along the ocean coast, Reserve Naturelle Naila, Souss-Massa national park, Tafraoute. Tours and groups were so different but always the kind treatment of Ali and all Camel Safaries team made our time in Marocco so unforgettable. Drivers and guides were so amazing, kind, caring, helpful and friendly. Many thanks to Ali (in 3 tours he was our guide) and Mohammed (our guide in cities tour), they were telling about all us interesting questions about local traditions & life, always very interesting and spectacular. Thanks for your heart touching care. We had such a great opportunity to see the most beautiful Marroccan nature sights, cities, as well as eat very delicious & fresh local food, stay in so different & well considered accommodation places. I highly recommend this Camel Safaries company for everyone, I wish you all to come to Marocco and live this fabulous experience. …

A long overdue review for an amazing trip from Fes to Marrakech with Camel Safari in April 2019. Quick version: Ali is a very responsive manager, and our guide Hassan executed the trip so that it was personalized and beyond a tourist experience. He is worth requesting. A more detailed review for those considering embarking on this trip: Planning Process: It was extremely easy to coordinate this trip with Ali (almost alarmingly) and get all of our questions answered. Despite the time difference from the US to Morocco I would find a very timely email response to make planning very simple. We initially had some hesitation sending the deposit without actually speaking and not having a personal reference ourselves, but everything turned out to be very legitimate and I cannot say enough about how easy Ali made the whole planning process. The Experience: Our trip was a guided tour from Fes to Marrakech in 3 days. The reality of that experience is a balance of a lot of driving and immersing yourself in as much Berber culture as you can fit in. This is where having the right guide makes all of the difference. We were fortunate enough to be paired with Hassan who had a wealth of knowledge and provided a tour beyond just the surface level tourist attractions. In the many hours driving along this beautiful country, Hassan gave us facts about each town we went through, history and local insight to some of the places. He indulged us in taking rest stops to explore canyons, desert and random stops, including a snowball fight in the mid atlas. The Accommodations: The desert camp is amazing. Maybe it was due to the lack of expectations, but we found ourselves taking the camel ride to a five star glamping experience with wifi, curated meals and running water where some of our fellow guests were on their honeymoon. Our second night was spent in a beautiful hotel on a hilltop providing amazing views of the valleys and dades in the area. The food included throughout the trip was stellar and all I can say is I am happy to have bought some local Moroccan mint tea from the local spice market. In summary this trip is an amazing value for the personalized experience and accommodations you receive and I would never make this trip without the professional guide service like what Camel Safaries provides.…

Review of: Luxury desert camp Erg Chebbi
It was our 1st trip out of Europe and definately the best one! Sahara and Morocco will stay in my heart forever❤ We arrived to Agadir from Riga in October when the weather is getting rainy at home and were welcomed by warm moroccan sun. And local guide- very nice Berber guy who was telling about local traditions and life, always very interesting and spectacular. We travelled about 2000km across the southern part of Morocco and enjoyed the views of stouny fields, argan trees and flying goats, camels and and oasises. Were eating local food-very delicious and fresh. My favourite part was Sahara! We spent a night on a dune under the sky full of stars, don't know if I was sleeping as felt like the moon was gazing at me🤗 It was absolutely fantastic feeling! And were watching sunrise on the highest dune! I wish you all who was reading my review to come to Morocco and live this experience at least once in a lifetime!…

My cousin had recommended this company after doing a desert tour with them last fall. So I decided to book with them as well. I was not disappointed! I booked a private 3 day two night desert tour which started in Fes and ended in Marrakech. I was so pleased that there was an option to do it this way as it fit perfectly into our itinerary. Our driver was Mohammed. He was the kindest and most courteous guide you could hope for. He was always on time and always professional. The accommodations in the desert camp went BEYOND our expectations! We chose the luxury option because I do not like to camp but I ABSOLUTELY loved our room in the tent. The staff at the camp were also amazing. The dinner was fantastic and the whole desert experience was unforgettable. A once in a lifetime opportunity not to be missed. The accommodations for our second night in the valley were also amazing. I cannot say a single negative thing about this experience. We will Miss Morocco and we will miss Mohammed! Thank you Ali and Camel Safaries for memories that will last a lifetime!…

Review of: Moroccan Desert 3-Day Tour from Marrakech
This 3 day tour was the absolute highlight of our trip to Morocco. From start to finish, every moment was spectacular. We received incredible service from our driver/guide Khalid. He went above and beyond to make this trip memorable for us. All the stops were breathtaking and of course the night in the Sahara is something we will never forget. I highly recommend this trip and tour company.…
