From the very beginning of our tour my sister and I felt well cared for. Idir, our driver arrived at our Riad on time and after introducing us to his 'Japanese camel', a clean, air conditioned 4wd, we set off on what was to become a truly wonderful trip. Idir was friendly, informative and attentive. He is a very good driver too. On our journey to Merzouga we saw some beautiful scenery and visited some delightful places including Ait Ben Hadou. Whilst on the road we had some great conversations with Idir involving much laughter. On our arrival at Merzouga we were greeted by Ismail who from moment we met took very good care of us. Our camel ride (a first for me) into and out of the desert was a great experience, the men leading the camels being very happy to take photographs of us. On our arrival at our camp we were joined by a small number of other tourists and their guides who were all very friendly. We watched the sunset and were encouraged to do some sand boarding. After it became a little too dark to carry on our outdoor activities we went into the big nomadic tent where we ate a delicious meal and were delightfully entertained by the guides. Then it was the tourists' turn to entertain! There was no pressure put on anyone who didn't want to take part but the friendly atmosphere meant that all were willing to have a go. At the natural conclusion of the entertainment we were invited to go and star gaze and watch for shooting stars. We were led up a big dune by our respective guides and remained there for some time spotting shooting stars which were aplenty. Both my sister and I feel that this time was truly very special for us, the pinnacle of our time in an intoxicatingly beautiful country. We slept comfortably in our nomadic tents and were woken early to watch the sunrise before returning (by camel) to the hotel on the edge of the desert where we had a hearty breakfast followed by a hot shower. Then our journey back to Marrakech. It was sad to say goodbye. Above all else, it is the people on this tour who made our time in Morocco so magical.

My sister and I did a three day tour with Camel Excursions Morocco based on the Trip Advisor reviews and we were delighted with our experience. We started and finished in Marrakesh collected and driven privately by Idir, who was charming, friendly, courteous and an excellent driver. He took us through a number of towns and villages to Ait Ben Haddou (where Gladiator was filmed) the film studio near Ourzazate, the Skoura valley which abounds with palm trees and roses valley ending up in Dades valley where we stayed in a beautiful four star hotel with spectacular views overlooking the valley. The following morning Idir took us via some sites to Merzouga where we rode camels into the desert arriving at the small Berber camp in time to watch the sunset over the dunes. We had a go at sand boarding and were then given a delicious meal which we ate with nine other guests who were chatty and friendly. Ismael and his fellow guides then entertained us with music and dancing which we were invited to join in with. It was huge fun. Then we climbed the dunes and lay under the stars for a long time talking and joking and watching shooting stars. It was magical.
We got up early next morning to watch the sun rise then rode the camels back to Merzouga for a hearty breakfast and shower. It was a long drive back to Marrakesh but it was not tedious because there was a lot of gorgeous and spectacular scenery.

If you do a trip with this company you will not be disappointed.

Our whole tour was really excellent. As the Deserts are so far, its better to make a trip of atleast 4 days holding the trip in different places. Our hotel was so beautiful, food was great, i loved to have food in local restaurants where so many village people were having their lunch and dinner. Our guides were really excellent people. Inshallah i would be back with my wife.

Amazing tour guides who were very friendly! He drove safely throughout the journey and explained the attractions. Desert experience was exceptional unforgettable. We enjoyed this Berber style for the desert experience. Food in desert was great and better than some restaurants in Marrakesh. We spent our first night in a 4 stars hotel with great buffet and nice pool and jacuzzi. We spent our second night in ">thousand stars hotel" - the desert. They gave us a choice to sleep under the Milky-way or in the tents. Surely we picked the starry night view with warm blankets.
Stargazing was unforgettable, we climbed to the top of the dune and saw countless of stars and so many shooting stars.
Highly recommend, and would love to go back again.
SaHa(Thank you in Berber) for the great hospitality!

We visited Morocco in June 2013 and decided to do the camel trekking to experience the desert. Idir, the driver and tour guide picked us up at our Riad in Marrakesh in the morning. We had a nice drive over the High Atlas Mountains, with several stops for taking pictures, breaks, lunch. There were many beautiful mountains, valleys and canyons along the way, but the highlight of our trip was the night spent in the desert. We arrived in Merzouga early evening. There, we met Ismail, who accompanied us into the desert. He was such a great guide and host! And so much fun!!!
After riding the camels to the desert camp, watching the sunset and taking some wonderful pictures, it was time for dinner, music and dances. Ismail thought our daughter how to play the African drums and then he took us on the top of a dune to watch the amazing starts.......so many of them, so close and so beautiful; we did not want the night to end, but eventually we had to go to our tent for a few hours of sleep before we woke up to see the sunrise. Then, we rode back to town and the civilized world after one of the most amazing nights we ever had!!! We travel a lot and seen many places and we feel that this was an unique experience, greatly enhanced by the hospitality and friendliness of our host. Thank you Ismail for making our excursion so wonderful, thank you Idir and the whole crew!!!!
