The guides are here for you, at least the ones we had. Punctual and serving. It seemed as if the people were here were the first people we’ve met in Morocco that didn’t want anything from you, but for you to have an enjoyable vacation. On the way to the tour, they helped us tremendously with bargaining with local vendors. They showed us any spot worth looking at and skipped the ones that other companies go to that might seem less appealing. Muhammad even paid for my water from one vendor because the cashier didn’t have change for me. He refused the measly amount of money the whole trip. I tried and tried and I realized that he’s really here for us to enjoy.
The actual tents on arrival were amazing. Very luxurious for a damp ground. The whole experience with the workers singing and dancing was a blast. The food was good and the service even better. There was a new guy there that had only been there for 2 months working. He was my favorite. The kindest, nicest, and best English for us to understand more about the Sahara. Overall great experience with a professional staff.

We planned a trip to Morocco and wanted to see the "real" Morocco.

We booked our tour and, like everyone, we hoped for the best. Our driver, Said Nogot, picked us up from hotel and we started our drive into the desert.

Said was excellent, he showed us the different sights, stoped at clean restaurants and bathrooms.

We drove to the valley and stayed the night, very peaceful and nice hotel. We started the next day and visited the gorge, which was beautiful to see.
The hightlight of course was the night in the desert. We took a casual camel ride into the camp and were greeted at a luxurious camp ground. All the prepared meals were excellent.

If you are planning to go between Tangier and Marrakech, this is an excellent excursion. You will experience the desert and a life that is completely different.
