The experience was fantastic and was something I would definitely recommend. But the guide in that town on the way to Zagora was not exactly the best when it came to service. But as soon as you got out to zagora, there is nothing to say, it was simply fantastic. If you want to save some money, you can bring a veil (we gave 80-120 dhr for our veil) and sunglasses (we gave 65-120 dhr for sunglasses) from home, otherwise the only other food issued was on the road, which we gave approx. . Dhr 100 per person in the restaurant. But otherwise good trip.

It is a long time to sit on a bus. The pee breaks were at a nice interval. Ok tour around a city where many films have been shot. Don't buy a scarf. It went well with those we had with us, and completely without, on the way back. You have to ride with your luggage. We didn't really know what was going to happen in the camp. First tea and nuts. Late they called and said we had to eat. In a huge tent. It was fine. The men at the table were happy that we were vegetarians because there wasn't much meat to share. There was dancing, music and bonfires. It was endlessly cold at night in the tents. The breakfast was good. Currently there is road work through large parts of the Atlas Mountains, and it is a long trip. My kids are teenagers and it was fine. There were not many children in the camp. You must bring your own water.

It was a good experience to get out into the desert area, the starry sky was fantastic. The drive was very long, with many stops at various vendors both days. The camel ride itself was a great experience, we only got out to the dromedaries when it was pitch dark, I don't know how long we rode there, but in the morning it was 40 minutes. It was amazing to climb the mountain in the morning and see the sunrise, it cannot be described. Whether we will do it again : I'm not sure, it was two very long days of mountain driving, with a local driver.
