It's a different experience, which is worth having. Just for the atmosphere of being in the desert, the sunset and camel rides are worth the price. Our guide Hafid was very attentive and helpful. Dinner is well served and at the end there is a very fun typical musical performance and a fire performance to end the night.

Excellent! For the price it was a very good and unique experience. The Atlas Mountains were stunning and the Berber village was incredible. The camels was the icing on the cake. Tour guide Reda was great and very friendly.
