– Kyla G: Great 5 Days Sahara Tour
My daughter and I wanted to have a special journey together. We were excited and a little nervous once we decided on Africa as our destination. The best thing we did was to choose Camel Excursions Morocco as our guide, our only regret is that we didn’t start our tour with them from our arrival in Casablanca. Ismail was wonderful from our first email inquiry as we began planning our trip. He replied promptly and made suggestions that relieved the stress of figuring out transportation and lodging. From the moment he met us at the train station in Marrakech we felt safe and were extremely pleased with the quality of accommodations and the personal touch he put on the sights we saw.
His cheerful smile and friendly personality made the many miles we traveled sail by. He stopped often to point out view spots great for taking pictures and for stretching our legs along the way. The highlight was riding the camels into the desert and spending the night under the stars in the sand dunes of the Sahara. He made us fall in love with his country rich in history and diversity. We will never forget this trip and the time we spent with Ismail. It was the trip of a lifetime!
– Kevin F: 10/10 Tour Through the Sahara Desert
Prior to finding out about this tour, our plan was to do the 2 day 1 night tour leaving and returning from Marrakesh offered by our hostel. Our next destination was Fes so our plan was to train to Casablanca and then Fes (7+ hours of train, awesome). After being recommended this tour by a friend, it seem like the perfect way to get to Fes and see the desert at the same time. I wasn’t sure about the price since it is significantly more expensive than the other tours we looked at. It took some voting within the group to convince me to book this tour.
Our tour guide/driver (Shoutout to Mohammad, he was simply the best) picked us up from our hostel in Marrakesh and eventually dropped us off in Fes right infront our hostel. He took care of everything during the trip and made sure we were as comfortable and safe as possible. Make sure to sit in the front with him, because while your lame friends sleep in the back he would tell your everything you need to know about Morocco.
The accommodations are extremely comfortable. Make sure to pick the luxury camp in the desert, it’s absolutely worth the price. After hiking sand dunes the best thing is a hot shower. There’s power but no wifi, although you should have plenty to look at in the night when the stars come out. Also, don’t miss the Sahara sunrise.
We spoke to people who traveled on the same route but with other tours, and their experience was nowhere as great as ours. It is absolutely worth it. Ismael is great at responding to questions and emails. Tell Mohammad Kevin says salaam sahibi 🙂
