    Amazing experience, we rode the camels through the desert, we enjoyed the sunset and the sand boarding. They 2 boys guiding us (Mohammed and Mostafa) were really kind and well prepared. When arriving at the tends we had a lovely dinner with really good staff serving us. The best part was after dinner where we sat around a fire and we told stories and jokes with the all the guys working at the tends, they've been playing music too. We are really grateful for the experience they gave us. We're sorry if we don't remember all their names but we will definitely remember them as good and friendly people.

    Super! Everything well organized, great experience. The food was also very good, very nice! There was some confusion about the program; you don't know exactly how long each 'part' takes. As a tip for the organizers, I would like to say something about it now and then or tell something about the area. With a baby (1 year), support turned out to be the most convenient. All in all, great value for money!

    We came to pick us up at the hotel (meeting point) to take us to the camels, then we crossed the desert for 1h30 taking photos and admiring the sunset. We then arrived at the bivouac which was very well equipped (real bedrooms, sink, toilet, dining room) and we were greeted with tea. We ate local dishes in good quantity and then we listened to the percussionists on Berber instruments around a fire while admiring the stars. The next morning we got up around 7am to watch the sunrise there, then we left on camels to finally drive us back to the hotel. We were also able to have breakfast which was included in the service.
