This is an amazing tour and well worth it. Please do not let the long day/journey put you off. Our guide mahjoub fajar was amazing!!! We did not have cash to buy coffee etc and he lent us the money which was really lovely. The driver navigated bendy meandering road with clear precision. Everything about this tour was amazing and all the stops were well worth visiting.

We visited from US for a week trip to Morocco. One of the main highlights was this trip. The private driver, Mohammad was great, communication about travel was responsive and we have a wonderful stay in the desert and the camp was awesome! I would defiantly recommend booking this trip!

Fantastic trip to Ben Haddou and Ouarzazate. Medi our driver was a superb "host" and an excellent driver. We saw some incredible scenery and also the awe inspiring Ait Ben Haddou. It's a long day out, with lots of time in the van, but we were comfortable and well looked after!

It was a wonderful experience travelling to the Sahara though the journey there was quite tedious. Everything was pretty organised and for the price paid, it’s definitely worth doing this trip for the lifetime experience!

Amazing trip with Mustapha Ouarzazate. Will never forget the unique experience in the desert.
