It was an absolutely amazing experience! We had a blast with the driver/tour guide Driss, who went above and beyond for us to make the most of the trip. He was extremely kind, helpful, knowledgeable about anything we would ask, and his positivity and the time spent together during long drives definitely made our trip 200% more memorable and enjoyable! The sunset/sunrise at the dessert was magical and we also really enjoyed staying at the dessert camp. Dinner was absolutely amazing, the camp fire/music/dance was so much fun, and the tent was extremely comfortable with a big bed and private bathroom/shower. It was also a big plus to get to know other travelers from all over the world at the camp! Thank you so much for your hospitality and flexible arrangements/accomodations and we wish you all the best!

The experience was very nice, you can see incredible places. The daily life of the locals, the monkeys, the dromedaries, the sand dunes in the desert, the traditional market of Rissani, the houses of Ifrane, all very beautiful things. Our guide, Hachem, was very good, thanks to him and his stories we discovered and learned many things. Great Hachem, thank you.

The Magic of the Sahara Desert I had an amazing trip, Hacem was our tour guide and he is very knowledgeable about the history of the different sports that we visited and he is also a very fun guy to be around. He also know a lot about the best places to eat traditional food. I highly recommend this trip.

Our guide, Moustafa, was charming patient and informative. It was evident that he wanted us to have the most enjoyable trip possible. He was incredibly accommodating and generous with the Berbers who have nothing. There was a glitch in my reservation and he immediately helped resolve the problem

our guide ahkill was most pleasant and helpful, couldn't have asked for a better guide
