– Patrick C: Incredible visit and memories for a lifetime

My wife and I traveled to the desert with our guide, Mostapha, who did a wonderful job making us feel comfortable and at home in his country and in his hometown nearby the sand dunes. The drive from Marrakech to Merzouga was part of the adventure, moving through a dozen small cities and towns, and seeing the landscape transform into the vast desert.

The tour itself is unforgettable. Riding the camels into the sand dunes is fun…but also very easy and manageable given that we only went about an hour into the dunes. Probably like most, we’ve never seen or experienced anything like it, marching up these mountains of sand hundreds of feet high. The sunset and sunrise as well, are memories themselves. Our friends and family can’t believe the pictures…

– Amy B: Marrakech 3 Days Desert Tour!

“We had such an amazing experience with this tour and I would highly recommend it to EVERYONE!

Morocco is a beautiful country with warm and inviting people. As two females traveling, we were so very lucky to have Aziz as our driver- he looked after us the whole time and made sure we were safe and comfortable. My friend and I agreed that this was without a doubt the highlight of our trip. Aziz was personable and fun; we asked a million questions about the Moroccan culture and it was far better and more informative than any tour could’ve been. I would urge everyone to really soak up the experience by asking questions and learning more about the Moroccan way of life…”
