Hello guys, it's my first time posting on the TA forum. I've been searching for a 5D4N, or 4D3N trip to the desert from Marrakech. The research can get rather overwhelming as there are so many tour operators, and it seems like most are offering private tours.
After sifting through countless TA reviews (and identifying which ones have their rankings artificially inflated from fake reviewers), I've manage to get a couple of quotations from established and well-reviewed operators. It seems like the average cost of a private tour is around 500Eur per person (group of 2, total 1000Eur for 2 pax) for 5D4N, with decent accommodation (60Eur/ night accom). I find that rather steep so am looking to find some others to share the cost.
I've been struggling to find an operator that offers shared private tours with others. I'm not looking to travel in a big group crammed in a minivan. However, it will be nice to be able to find another couple (or max travel as a group of 6) to defray the cost. So far, I've manage to find Desert Majesty that can help me organise a trip with another couple but I wasn't able to work around the dates and departure city.
If anyone's able to point me to the right direction, please let me know.
Also, if you happen to be looking at doing a 4 or 5 days desert trip departing from and returning to Marrakech from 28-03-13 to 31-03-13 (or even 01-04-13), and want to save a bit by travelling together with my husband and myself, please send me a message and we'll try to work something out. We are in our early 30s and come from Singapore (currently living in London). The operator I've inquired has quoted 400EUR per pax if we are to travel as a group of 4, with comfortable and clean hotels/ riads (not the budget sort).
