Nick put together an adventure for us that even the most experienced travel agent would be hard pressed to match. My husband and I placed a great deal of trust in him and he didn’t let us down. After 3 days in Marrakech our driver, Hicham, picked us up in a clean and well-equipped Toyota Prado. Our drive over the Atlas Mountains included stays at Kasbah Ellouze (delightful), a backpacker style hotel in the Todra Gorge (good food, great wifi), and Bab el Oued Guesthouse in Agdz (dreamy little eco-resort). We stopped for lunch in the country, bought rugs in Ouarzazate, and listened to Hicham’s brilliant collection of regional music along the way. Then we drove out of civilization and into the desert. Bobo and Tine soon appeared in their 4WD and we felt as though we were in a National Geographic film as we sped into the dunes. We spent two nights at the main luxury camp, ate delicious hot meals, sand surfed, rode well mannered camels, photographed the sunset, and were treated to a drum concert beneath the stars at night. Bobo and his team were warm and personable hosts who cared for us like family. Then Hicham drive us out of the desert and up over the Tiz n’Test Pass (do it, you’ll love it) en route to Marrakech. Nick made it all possible by listening carefully to our hopes fro the trip and choosing a route and driver that fit them exactly. Do it, you won't regret it!
