Perfect trip if you are willing to explore Maroko deeper into country to see mountains and some interesting locations. Be prepared you spend almost all 2 days in car, travelling across country. Several stops are for taking pictures and buying presents. One stop is made in village to have 40 minutes walking up to "castle" where you have lunch. Then you continue to camp site, which you reach by one hour camel ride by sunset. Camp alone is very nice place with good dinner after which you can dance by fire. Get up early in the morning to climb to nearby mountain to see sunrise and get perfect pictures. Small sand dunes led you back to camp for breakfast and half hour camel ride back to car. Another 7 hour trip back awaits you, roads are curvy and bumpy. We visited film studios on way back which where Gladiator movie was filmed. My special thanks goes to very patient, nice and very skilled driver Mohamed who was always very kind, helpful and willing to fulfill our wishes. Thanks a lot

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!

Very nice experience but disappointed during a stop on the road to visit the city where there were a lot of films shot. Compulsory guided tour for money and purchase of a check in a specific store that the guide has chosen himself. Disappointed with this guide.

The drivers are great, AC functional. Location was nice, with fireplace and a band that sang and we also played at the instruments. The sunrise was really nice. Aït Benhaddou was amazing!:)
