Nice experience 1-2/3/2023, the driver was kind, funny and talkative, we lived a unique experience under the stars in the desert. Unluckily i didn't like the fact that the berber guide in the berber village took us in a scarves shop and he said that a scarf was needed for the desert and we felt forced to buy one in that shop, i'd prefer to feel free to have the choice where to buy it.

Amazing night in the desert! Excellent chance to experience the Bedouin life for 48 hours. If the precautions regarding the reception had been a little more expected, then we would certainly have given an excellent rating. We didn't fully appreciate the fact that they took you to have lunch (before and after the desert) in the restaurant designated by them… you had no choice, not even of menu or price because they were set menus. Watch out because the prices of the restaurants are absolutely for tourists (110 - 120 dirhams per menu). As for the transfer, we had to change the bus three times in the morning because they hadn't done the calculations right. The seats are comfortable but a little tight for a 7 hour journey.

An experience to try! It’s a long journey and you have different stops during the day. We were a group of 8 friends and we enjoyed the trip. We loved the food in the desert and the experience with the camel! Unfortunately we couldn’t catch the sunset as it was cloudy but overall a very lovely experience
