Everything was really great!!! The bus driver Mohammed Agadir and the tour guide Mahmut created a very good atmosphere and took very good care of everyone! They translated all information in French, Spanish, English and German and answered all questions. :) Even punctuality was a priority. It was a very well planned tour with various stops at beautiful viewpoints through the Atlas Mountains and with guided tours at Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou and Tinghir Gorge. All guides were great and the destinations were very well chosen.

The tour is really well done and has really good values for money. The hotel and camp we stay were really clean. All the tour guide nice, professional and they could speak different language. Desert amazing and camel were well maintained and treated properly. Good quality of food. The 3 day is just travelling back to Marrakesh but this trip really worth it.
