    It was fantastic and our driver guide Salmi was wonderful. It would assist if travellers understood that they can set their own itinerary before the trip starts.

    Everything was better than my expectation. Hassan, our driver was very friendly and professional. He picked us up at the hotel on time and also drop us to our hotel in Fez. He helped us a lot and very flexible. The car was comfortable and we were very lucky to get kind of a private tour because no other tourists booked the same date as us. The hotel was very nice and clean. The landscapes along the way is incredible and our driver showed us local restaurants for lunch. The highlight was the sunset in the desert and riding the camel. Simply unforgettable. It's a very long journey with the car but I loved it and already used to this kind of trip. The camp in the desert was also clean, we got our own bathroom. But it could be very cold at night (we visited in February) so bring warm clothes!

The tour was great and Mohamed was super!

Experience was great as well as our guide Mohamed. The only issue we faced was realated to the hotel. As per email and agreements we were expecting one hotel while, just before the check in, they informed us that it was fully booked, so they booked a different one ... that was crapy (seriously!) I refuse myself to stay there and the agency was lovely to find a different (and much better!) solution.

It was fantastic and our driver guide Salmi was wonderful. It would assist if travellers understood that they can set their own itinerary before the trip starts.

Simply marvellous! Abdorahman is highly professional, knowledgeable and very reliable
