This was by far one of the best tours I’ve ever done! Our guides were so funny, knowledgeable and you could tell they enjoy what they do. The sites we saw were amazing, and things we would have never experienced had it not been for this trip. Omar & Jamal were the best!

Touring the Berber villages and riding quads was the perfect amount of educational and exciting! Camel ride is great and the camping setup was very comfortable. All of the guides were multi lingual and very friendly!

This was such a fun experience! I highly recommend it to everyone that would love to go to Sahara Desert from Marrakesh! The driver Hakim was so nice to everyone and he helped us whenever we needed something. We would not manage to see all these places in such a short time if we were on our own....
