What people are saying about Drâa-Tafilalet

It is worth taking the 4-day tour. Clean accommodations and great hospitality staff. Our guide Moustapha was very professional and helpful. The night in the desert was positive, tents and bathrooms clean. The dromedary return from the camp to Merzouga is a bit too hasty. Recommended for newcomers to Morocco.

amazing experience

We enjoyed everything of our trip: the places, the people, the food, the desert, our driver Abdellah. He has always been very professional and very gentle. We'll surely suggest this tour to our friends.
