Highly recommend this tour. There was only one review on here when we booked so I was a bit skeptical. We didn't hear from the tour about the exact pickup time so were a bit worried. But Mehdi was there promptly at 8. The tour was very flexible and excellent value for money. The camps are really great, with showers and hot water, the sunset camel ride was really great and the view of the night skies unforgettable. We were even able to arrange for transfer from Marrakesh to Casablanca with the driver at the end of the trip.

Schöne Tour. Unser Fahrer Mohamed (Momo) hat uns zu einigen wunderbaren Orten gebracht, die wir alleine niemals gefunden hätten. Speziell eindrücklich war die Nacht in der l'auberge roche noire und das Wüstenbiwak. Die Gastfreundschaft auf dem Land ist unbeschreiblich! :) Merci!

Non pensavamo che questo tour, prenotato con l'intenzione di conoscere da vicino la cultura Berbera e ammirare luoghi unici, ci avrebbe arricchito tanto. La nostra guida Ayub (si scrive così?) è stato un compagno di viaggio ricco di attenzioni, saggio, gentile e paziente. Abbiamo incontrato persone veramente "speciali" e vissuto emozioni forti. Il deserto Erg Chegaga di notte è stato da togliere il fiato! Non abbiamo dormito per guardare il cielo illuminato da un'infinità di stelle nel silenzio più assoluto! Abbiamo poi visitato luoghi in cui la vita è difficile ma, alcune volte vissuta con una dignità che non sempre riusciamo a riscontrare nei paesi "sviluppati". grazie.
