This 3 day trip was absolutely amazing! Our driver, Hamza, was very professional, polite, and kind. Be aware that your 3 days are mostly spent riding in a van! We were in a 9 person van and there were 9 of us. The first day was a full 8 hours of riding in the van but we made multiple stops along the way for taking photos of awesome views or just for bathroom breaks and snacks. The second and third days are 5-6 hours of driving plus multiple stops. You will see great things along the way. The Berber tent camp was great. The food and accommodations were lovely and all the men were kind. Yes, there are indoor toilets and showers inside the tents. The camel ride was spectacular! This is a great value for the cost, you get breakfast and dinner include, the camp included, the hotel the 1nd night was good and included as well. I definitely recommend!

It was an absolutely amazing experience! We had a blast with the driver/tour guide Driss, who went above and beyond for us to make the most of the trip. He was extremely kind, helpful, knowledgeable about anything we would ask, and his positivity and the time spent together during long drives definitely made our trip 200% more memorable and enjoyable! The sunset/sunrise at the dessert was magical and we also really enjoyed staying at the dessert camp. Dinner was absolutely amazing, the camp fire/music/dance was so much fun, and the tent was extremely comfortable with a big bed and private bathroom/shower. It was also a big plus to get to know other travelers from all over the world at the camp! Thank you so much for your hospitality and flexible arrangements/accomodations and we wish you all the best!

Well organized and for a very reasonable price, highly recommend! It was 12 of us and we were driving in a spacious van, the guide was really friendly, be prepared that you will spend a lot of time in the car but its surely worth it, we stopped several times to enjoy the views, take nice pics, for food etc. Sahara was definitely the highlight of the tour but if you are travelling during the cold months, it can get pretty cold there. The tent though was really luxurious with a private toilet, shower and many blankets.

This was amazing! We are a family of 6 and everyone in our group would give this experience a 10/10. Camel ride was so fun! Sunset, gorgeous. Dinner, good. Fire and music, entertaining. Sleeping arrangements, comfortable and staff…very kind. Would recommend 100%.

Very nice and special experience. All included, as provided in the description. Guide Said was extremely nice.
