What people are saying about Agafay Desert

Perfect is an understatement to describe the day we had. I’d read a lot of reviews before booking and none really captured how vast and great the day would be - we did, ate and saw everything that was possible to really get an understating of Berber life, and met the loveliest people as a bonus! As a guide, Mohamed is 5*, I couldn’t fault one thing; from his contestant enthusiasm, checking in on the tour group, to his knowledge and warmth for his community and people in the Berber community, it made for a very special trip that I know myself and my mum will remember forever - it’s the best thing we’ve done in Marrakech by far! Thank you to Mohamed for the day, I couldn’t fault one thing and would HIGHLY, highly recommend.

extraordinary experience in the desert that we will never forget, but above all, a human adventure that touched our hearts. Quad… dromedary… tea break in a dream setting… a delicious tajine… a wonderful welcome with equally wonderful people… To do absolutely, they even deserve 6 stars!

Great activity! Mohamed potato and chawi gave us a great experience at the Atlas mountains and around traditional villages, providing us with info about the area's history and traditions. Highly recommended!
