Experience to do absolutely! Everything organized to perfection! The journey is long but passes easily! We stayed in the luxury tent and had a great time, very spacious and with an en-suite bathroom. It's cold at night but if you wrap up warm, it's great. Excellent dinner and breakfast! The visit to the kasbahs of ait-ben-haddou and to Ourzarzate is beautiful. Truly a unique experience!

In general, a very pleasant experience, they offered enough comforts considering that it was the desert, the bad thing is that in all the tours they ask you again for a "tip" but they pressure you more than optional, seeming to be mandatory. You have to be prepared for almost 9 hours on the way by car

The tour consists of many hours in the bus. We enjoyed Ouarzazate almost nothing, for the guides it is more important to sell products where they have the percentages, this applies to scarves (for example, the shop next door saw the same cotton scarf, for half) and to the restaurant for lunch (fee not included in the package). Obviously being a group they pushed us all to stay united and therefore didn't give us the possibility to choose. There is a lack of informing people about what you are going to do, how long you stay in one place and what you have to leave on the bus and what exactly to bring in the tent. (Ex. There are no showers and hot water, the tents are basic) The tour in general is very nice, we had fun in the desert, the dinner was good, the Bedouins were very kind. Very good driver.
