Superb private tour of the Sahara.
This firm reserved for my husband and I a four-day trip of the Sahara from Marrakech to Fes. The entire journey is great. Our driver, Ali, is really good and know-how. When we were in the dessert, he asked us to lunch at home, which is the greatest couscous I've ever had in Morocco. We took dozens of pictures and the dessert is very magnificent. The tent is cozy and even a hot shower is provided.
