What a life experience! Me and my girlfriend had the best local tour ever with Aziz Talaoul, having the opportunity to discover Marocco and the Berber culture with locals through all the 5 senses. Even the food was delicious, in particular the lunch we had in an authentic Berber house (“chez L’habitant”) with Hicham and his family around At Tamdakhate. We would totally recommend it to all the adventurers who want to go back at home richer of experience and full of great memories!

From pick to drop off the whole experience was amazing. We had a brilliant day and our guide Muhammed couldn't have been anymore helpful and pleasant which made the day more pleasurable. The Tagine experience was brilliant, my other half doesn't usually eat veg, but kept loading his plate up and enjoyed every mouthful. Well worth the money and would definitely be doing this day trip again when we visit next year.

Great experience! Very nice journey with magnificent landscapes all along to arrive in the desert. This formula allows us to enjoy without worrying about logistics. The hotels are very correct and the staff always welcoming. The night in the desert is unforgettable. A big thank you to our driver Aziz Talaou, efficient, always in a good mood and ensuring that our experience is the best possible.

Fun trip and exactly as advertised! Picked up from the hotel on time, had almost two hours on the camels. We are a family of 4 (with 2 kids ages 11 and 13) we traveled in a group of four camels (kids got their own). Had mint tea afterwards in a small market area. Highly recommend!

Stunning location and views! The private tour wasn’t fully private as there was another couple. Nevertheless, a great experience I would recommend everyone visiting Agadir
