What people are saying about Ait Benhaddou

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.

Everything went very well despite the journey being quite long (8 hours to go and 8 hours to return). On the outward journey it passes rather quickly because there are quite a few stops and the landscapes are magnificent, while the return passes less quickly. We arrive at the bivouac camp on camels and we enjoy the sunset from the top of the dunes. It's incredible. Certainly the camp is not in the middle of the desert and close enough to a road, however, we forget it very quickly with this idyllic setting.

It was great experience, everything was well organized, the driver mustspha oujidi was kind to the listening very nice. The tents were great, the breakfast varied. I recommend Marrakech services

Best experience with Mustafa our driver, he is very polite and and has excellent drivimg skills. Good hospitality and good food. Overall very good trip with fun. Thank you very much

Private driver was very helpful and friendly. Not intrusive. Showed us the beautiful spots along the way. Made sure we were dropped off at the camels on time. Well arranged.
