Desert Family Tour is the best solution for an amazing and exclusive adventure, you fill to be in a big family all time, i m Italian and with this experience i ve meet a lot of nice people, i shared the minivan with Chile and Mexico , the resort into the desert was very beautiful, dinner with berbers and dance berber music around a nice fire under the star. Was everything perfect i reccomand this group to visit Sahara desert and all the small city around Marocco. Thank you very much.

We were lucky to be just 6 people and the guide (Larsen). The trip takes a while to the desert, but with the guide's concern we made several stops to drink tea, see the unbelievable views and to show us typical things, it didn't cost that much. We had a contact with Moroccan life as I never thought. In my opinion it was an experience for life and I would do it again as I did. Thanks to Larsen for being impeccable with us and for making this tour a remarkable thing for life.

Exactly as advertised. You get to see several beautiful places and everything is coordinated quite well, but its alot of driving! Great value considering all that is included. Quality of food fluctuates depending on the day, but did have some good meals. If you are determined to see the a snip of the Atlas Mountain and the sandy parts of the Sahara this trip is worth it. Our main driver, Ali, was very kind and helpful and arranging pick-up/drop-off was easy.

Great , just do it!!!! you will not be sorry! the guide was the super, locations aswell! an d teh atmosphere great!!!!

It was very beautiful. I can only recommend it to anyone who wants to experience an adventure. :)
