Be prepared to spend most of your time on the bus, with breaks every two hours. Apart from that, the experience is very very beautiful, the atmosphere that was created during the evening was fantastic, like being with family. We ate, sang, danced and looked at the stars. On the other hand, a negative note was the guide to kasbah air benahddou, as they kept asking us for money both for tickets to enter and visit the city (none of the other tourists had to pay for the entrance), they asked for additional tips (even though they didn't have us). net nothing of that), they forbid you to buy goods inside the city as they would have decided where to let us buy things (from their friends to be able to take a percentage), same thing for the food issue. A shame about this little inconvenience, otherwise we had a lot of fun, the guys in our company were great and we had a great time.

Die Tour hat uns gut gefallen. Wir haben einen guten Einblick in die marrokanische Landschaft erhalten (Atlasgebirge, Zagorawüste, Kasbahs). Die Übernachtung in der Wüste war super: Die Temperatur in der Nacht war angenehm und nicht zu kalt. Das Kamelreiten war ein absolutes Highlight. Überprüft eure geplanten Stops und den tatsächlichen Ablauf. Leider hätte unser Guide ohne unsere Erinnerung die Aït Benhaddou ausgelassen. Ansonsten sehr nettes und hilfsbereites Team!

Very nice experience in the desert, and very nice evening. The Atlas Mountains are magnificent. Quite an hour's drive from Marrakech 6/7 hours. Small flat of this circuit the restaurants of the South are taxed so it's very touristy. Instead of prioritizing free time. And big scam on a guide who charges the visit while the site aït ben Addou is free and 3 sentences of explanation which allows to justify it in "guide". I end on a positive note, our driver was great!
