More than 5 stars. We had a wonderful time in a small group. Our guide Mohamed was very knowledgeable about history and the culture and today’s way of living of the Sahara people. We have been offered to do another day of hiking in the dunes and to visit a Nomad family instead of driving back to Marrakech in two days with a stop over in Ouarzazate. So we did a 5-hours hiking tour with our guide Omar and two camels. Although Omar does not speak English very well, we had a wonderful time with him. Also, lunch and tea with Ahmed’s family was very interesting, since we got to know a tiny bit about the simple way of nomad living. We were very lucky, because our group was max. 6 persons. I think, if you are in a larger group, the experience will be different. If you are very conscious about animal welfare, perhaps you will not like the camel track. The camels are treated very well and looked healthy, but of course the treatment of animals is different from that in Europe, for example.
We definitely would recommend this tour! Our guide Ibrahim and driver Aziz were very friendly, considerate, and patient. We had a great day. They picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel, bringing us water. The drive was long (3-4 hours) but very scenic to Ait Ben Haddou. The car had air conditioning and was private just for our group. Air Ben haddou was a very unique sight, as seen in many popular movies and shows!
I absolutely loved it! Amazing fluent English speaking guide. We learned a lot, he took some amazing videos and photos of us! Safe driving, lots of patience and very informative! I would definitely recommend you take this excursion with this driver/tour guide because you will get an awesome tour plus more! I am bringing the kids back with hopes they can experience the tour with the exact same tour guide Abdul!
Superb excursion! Our guide Lahcen was great! As well as our driver abdou top !! The first day we visited the kasbah tel ouet: magnificent! As well as plenty of photo breaks in front of sumptuous landscapes! The evening in the desert: brilliant! The camel ride: happiness! In addition the ballad was long so great! Really recommend this excursion !! Thank you to our guide for this great time !!
An interesting trip to a nice place. Worth seeing.
