Our best experience in Morocco! The trip was organized by Marrakesh Travel Services. Our driver Mostafa stayed with us the whole time and was very friendly and available. Our first stop was Ait Ben Haddou, an amazing village where a local guy showed us around and explained everything in many languages, making the visit accessible to everyone. After a long trip on the van we reached the meeting point in the desert with some Bedouins, who made us ride their dromedairs until the camp for about an hour. The camp had showers and a charging point for phones, and tents were one for every couple, which was nice. The Bedouins kept us company and we exchanged many tales about their life and jobs, and they also played drums for us around the bonfire, a great experience for sure. The wholesome relationship they had with their animals was also reassuring.

Aziz amazing driver, really carefull, enough stops and u are able to buy water and food all along the way. Camps are with Douches and Toilets. Really nice trips and guides. For me i wouldnt need to go to the Film Studios and the lunch on the way back was just not good. The camp is also not as far in the desert as i expected. That said, the camelride, eating Berber food, singing and making music and seeing the amazing stars in the night were an incredible experience i will never forget. Would recommend

If you do not wanna spend a lot of time in the desert but would like to have the experience, this is a wonderful tour. You stop at lovely places along the way that are historical, cultural and give you a greater appreciation and understanding of morocco. The time spent at the camp yes truly a great experience. The staff are so kind. They guide you through the desert in camels. Upon arrival to camp, they provide mint tea and encourage you to ask questions. After a traditional dinner, they play drums for you around a bonfire and encourage you to dance under the stars. It was a great experience for my 16 year old daughter and I.
