We had a great time on our trip to Merzouga with Aziz Talaoul. He is an amazing driver and guide: we felt safe all the time and he introduced us thoroughly to southern Morocco, the Berber land. He is an easygoing, open and friendly character and knows a lot about area and culture. Also, he showed us modern and traditional music as well as basics in Berber language. Accomodation was way beyond our expectations and we could not manage to cope with all the delicious food. It could be seen, that the tour organizers worked carefully on all points of critic, mentioned here so far. Some parts of the program are classical touristic hotspots with the usual benefits and downsides; one should be aware of that. For us, the landscapes were a highlight and a teaser to dive deeper into morocco's nature. Thanks a lot Aziz for the fantastic time!

Aziz is an excellent driver with comfortable and well maintained car and he is a very nice, easygoing person. The camp on the Sahara was exceptional and the tent was very comfortable with large and clean bathroom. Outstanding views during the trip through Atlas mountains. Quality of the meals and hotel rooms' standard diverse with some real gems.
