Beautiful experience, from the pick up in the riad to the arrival in the Merzouga desert. Excellent organization throughout. The journey is long but is lightened by the agreed stops such as the cedar forest with its macaques and continuing throughout the palm grove of the Ziz Valley. Once you arrive in the desert, all you have to do is have fun aboard the camels admiring the sunset: a unique experience. Dinner and Berber songs in the tented camp round off this experience. Our guide was excellent, so much so that we left a tip for keeping us company throughout the trip. We weren't disappointed at all. There were some small unexpected events like a few cockroaches in the tent, but you know: you are in the desert and you cannot expect the comforts of a 5-star hotel. Very long journey but absolutely to do with your eyes closed and this package at an honest price (perhaps lowering it with some discount code that you find on Google) was great!

What an INCREDIBLE and LIFE CHANGING adventure. Not only were the people on our tour (6 of us total) incredible, our guide was exceptional. We visited some small villages on the way to the desert and back, as well as met some incredible Berber people. The transportation was professional and clean, did not feel unsafe at all. The drive is quite far from Fes (8 hours one way) but you cross two mountain ranges with PLENTY of stops for photos and bathroom breaks. Everything was well worth it and I am so happy I booked with this tour, and not with one that takes 15-20 people on the same bus. I give this my highest recommendation and really encourage you to take a leap of faith. You are going to learn and discover so much here, it's 10000% worth it! Thank you so much for a great time, cannot wait to come back in the near future!

we set off with the camels at 5:00 p.m. our guide was great. the camp is right next to the parking lot so not in the desert itself. unfortunately the food was nothing special... we ate much better on our trip. Unfortunately, sandboarding was not offered to us, although it was included in the price

The experience is very good if you have just enough time. Long drive but well worth it. It is something that must be done if you go to Morocco. I recommend it.

A road trip through Morocco where spectacular landscapes follow one another. I loved the visit to the souk of Rissani
