REVIEWS: 4 days desert tour Marrakech to Merzouga

The best tour of my life!

I agreed to go to this excursion without any idea of what I had signed up for. We were dropping my daughter for her study-abroad semester in Europe and our travel friends, who were accompanying us, suggested Morocco as a place to stop on the way there. They told us about sleeping in the desert and having to drive there. I didn’t think much about it and just said yes.
I am so glad I did because it was truly a magical experience. Spending the night in the desert overnight, riding the camels, and seeing the sunset and sunrise was simply spectacular. We got up in the middle of the night and clearly saw the Milky Way in all of its greatness. Our trip was long all the way from Fez but Ismael found a way to make it manageable...”


Like being with family!!

“I was admittedly worried about traveling with 4 children ages 3 -11 through Morocco. We were planning to do it all on our own. In researching our trip I’d come across camel excursions Morocco and sent an email with many questions to Ismael. He responded within 15 minutes and answered every question I threw his way. He answered all questions with great information but without any pressure to book through their company. Ultimately, I chose to go with them because of his kindness in correspondence, and willingness to help me find the best fit for my family without making me feel pressured. That is priceless to me…
