Desert Agafay and Atlas Mountains & Camel ride Day Trip From Marrakech

1,891 reviews
Morocco’s Agafay desert lies within day-trip distance of Marrakech, making it an easy alternative to visiting the Sahara Desert further south. With this private tour, save the hassle of an independent trip and combine the Agafay with a journey into the Atlas Mountains. Explore Berber villages and souks; cross the Kik Plateau, and finish with a camel trek in the Agafay before returning.

If you're reading this, it's probably too late and you've already been ripped off. You can try to file a dispute with your credit card company, but he will provide the signature receipt and that will be that. Your next move should be to file a complaint with Visa/Mastercard. They will open an investigation. Your best hope is that enough people complain about him that the merchant accounts drop him as a client. And/or he evolves his business practices to remove all deception and he's honest and transparent with his product. Your next move should be to complain to the ministry of tourism at cons.morocco at gmail dot com. It's infuriating enough to never want to return to Morocco. If possible, consider Tunisia instead.  1) It's intoxicating and dizzying and he takes full advantage of that. Shoving soaps and tea and spices in your face with stories and demoing "real" saffron. 2) Everything is priced in dirham per gram. At some point, after you object to the ungodly high price, he will say something about it being priced in euros which directly contradicts the posted prices. You will not be given an opportunity to see the breakdown of how much you're being charged per item. He verbally tells someone with a calculator how much to charge you, rounding up. Unless you speak Arabic, you won't know what he's telling that person. after I weighed everything I brought home and estimated the cost according to a photo posted here on Trip Advisor, I was mysteriously charged $160 more than the items I purchased.  3) Some spices are ground and some are whole. If it's whole, he'll grind it up and if you decide you don't want it, he'll tell you you HAVE to buy it. Also, don't buy the whole cardamom. He will grind it up, leaving you with unusable chards of cardamom pod mixed in with the seed powder. You'll be charged for it all, although you'll only be able to use a third of it. 4) He may push the ras el hanout and will say he makes a special mix "just for you" where he throws in cheaper spices and charges you for the more expensive ras el hanout weight. Essentially weighing down an already expensive mix. Also, it is displayed in whole spice form, so it's hard to gauge the weight with the large volume. I asked for 100 grams. He ground 1087 grams and forced me to buy all of it. 5) you may try to dispute the charge (or partial charge) with the credit card company, but since he doesn't give you a receipt, he wins.

Way too overpriced spices, forced to pay more than double the amount that youd pay in the markets and then will force you to pay even more. We bought for 200 dirhams of spices, which will cost 100 in the souks. They charged us 450 dirhams, and forced us to pay. We felt really attacked in this store and would love to see this closed or burned down. DO NOT GO HERE! Never had such a bad experience in my life, I sincerly hope this store gets closed soon.

We were taken here by a guide and we were pushed to buy VERY overpriced spices. Please avoid! These people were not only deceiving they are rude and disrespectful. They need to be reported.

I went with my friend. We bought few saffrons and a few argan oil. We were brought by a guide named Hisham. Be careful of them. They were telling us this and that and upon settlement it reached to 1594 dirham which was not supposed to be, and they charged us with 15940 dirham with our credit card. I complained in my bank here in the Philippines. I also contacted our hotel owner. He reported it to the police. My bank reversed it , but they told my bank that i was wrong. We are still under dispute. Hopefully no one will become a victim of theirs ever again!!! Very bad for the tourists!!

This shop is a major scam. I walked in to take a look around. Crafty salesman, very friendly it seemed. He said prices are posted but you can't really understand how much the weight is until you get to the register. He tried to charge me 90 euro for a few items. When I said it was too much he insisted he had ground some spices, which I hadn't asked him to do, and I was required to buy them. When I said I'd have to think about it he grabbed me by my arm. I yelled at him to let go and he did and left. A few minutes later his brother came looking for me, this time I was with my husband. He said his brother was wrong but he was willing to make me a deal. We didn't purchase anything from him. I did eventually buy the same exact items, much better quality away from town and spent 10 euro for the entire lot. I went there with a local friend, no guide. I would suggest you stay away from this store!
