Morocco Desert Private Tours came highly recommended to us from a friend back home. My interactions with Ali while planning and tailoring the tour to our needs was seamless and efficient. Our driver, Omar picked us up on time each day and provided a wonderful tour filled with plenty of opportunities to stop for photos, learn about the Moroccan culture and history and see what this truly remarkable country has to offer.
Our accommodations each night were superb and the food was delicious, we never went hungry! It was a safe and excellent way to get around and see the sights! I will be recommending this tour company to anyone who will be visiting Morocco!

The private tour to the Sahara was really a pleasant and enjoyable trip. Our driver and guide was brother Umar Azigane. He was really friendly and a nice companion to talk to throughout the whole journey. We really had a great time even though this was our first visit to Morocco.
The people whom we encountered were mostly friendly and helpful. We also enjoyed the camel ride to the luxury camp with excellent facilities. The meals served were delicious and all of us loved it. The trip was superbly a memorable one. Hoping to comeback again someday.
