It was great! Worth the money, comfortable accommodation and clean. Expect a lot of traveling in the mini bus, at least 15 hours tot al. Moulay was one of the tour guides and really good at it. Karim is a good driver too

Really good trip organization, and excellent guide Romero. Everything went smoothly. We with my son enjoyed it much. Keep up your good work. Thanks!

Fantastic organization it was a great experience I took the deluxe package for the camp it is worth the little extra money

We enjoyed it very much. The only caveat is that it was extremely cold at night sleeping in the tent

Everything was amazing! Loved our driver and all the activities!
