Well-rounded experience for two days! While there was a lot of driving, our driver Lahcen was really nice, the van was comfortable, and we we had a lot of stops and bathroom breaks. We got to see various sites all around Morocco and the overnight campsite was in excellent condition. Highlight was the camel experience! My only note would be to bring lots of cash because I there are multiple guides along the tour who expect tips.

It is a nice trip for the ones who want to have a first desert experience. Besides the time consuming drive until Zagora we did several stops in nice spots for photos. The time spent in Ait Ben Haddou was great. Abdou our guide in teh Ait Ben Haddou and Mahjoub, our driver,was a really nice man, who drives us carefully and helped us and the more needed during this trip.

Awesome tour with a great tour guide! We saw lovely places which we would never have found on our own. Everybody was nice to us. Good food, nice company and we even got to try on Berber clothes. We recommend everybody to do this tour and escape the busy streets in Marrakech.

The landscapes we passed by on our tour are really interesting. Our driver Mahjoub was very helpuf and allowed us to take some spontaneous shots on the road. Highly recommended!

this experience was amazing and highly recommended for everyone , they treated me very well , i felt happy and 100/100 will come back soon to morocco .
