Jamal and Omar were great. Jamal was informative and helpful. Omar was fun and thoughtful. And of course, the desert was magical. My only recommendation is to book the regular tour (start and end in the same city) because it is much better value and you stay with the full group and guides.

We have just returned from this 3 day trip and really enjoyed it - a great way to see the sights of Morocco, the desert experience was amazing - we were looked after really well by our driver Ahmed, and all guides were very knowledgeable and attentive. We would highly recommend this trip.

I could tell you a lot about this trip but you really... REALLY should experience it by yourself! It has been a perfect time seeing Marocco that you won't be able to see and experience any other way. And Jamal, if you read this, happy birthday with your daughter! 😊
