Massa Desert: Full-Day Tour with Lunch
- Pickup available
- Duration: 1 day
This trip was excellent. We were picked up at our hotel at 8.00 (a bit later than they’d suggested - the change was not a problem) in a very comfortable MPV. Our driver, Fouad, was excellent; he seemed to know his way around both cities, and coped amazingly well with the random and chaotic waltz of driving in Agadir and Marrakesh. The tour itself, with our personal guide Abdul, gave us just the right balance of culture and sightseeing. He guided us through the maze of the souk and was very knowledgeable about all the places we visited. The only downside was the 3-course Moroccan lunch; the food was very uninteresting and not plentiful (plain chopped tomatoes and lettuce for starters, meagre chicken for mains and sliced oranges for dessert) - quite disappointing. However don’t let that put you off (and hopefully the lunch will improve with feedback). We had a lovely day in Marrakesh with an excellent guide and amazingly good driver.
Highly recommend this tour. There was only one review on here when we booked so I was a bit skeptical. We didn't hear from the tour about the exact pickup time so were a bit worried. But Mehdi was there promptly at 8. The tour was very flexible and excellent value for money. The camps are really great, with showers and hot water, the sunset camel ride was really great and the view of the night skies unforgettable. We were even able to arrange for transfer from Marrakesh to Casablanca with the driver at the end of the trip.
Truly enjoyed it! Got picked up with another group since I was traveling by myself and enjoyed the time with new people. We made our first stop at a botanic garden where they talked about the plants and got served with tea, with some spice. You could buy some organic products, it wasn't of course forced. Our second stop were near the paradise valley since you could only walk to the place, it came with a good exercise as we enjoyed the environnent. Thanks to Momo, hé made everything better!
Loved it. Given the safety talk for the quad bikes and off we went. My friend wasn't as confident as me but enjoyed it as we were so well supported by the instructor. We went all over the sand dunes and then were delivered to the camels. Again very supportive guide who helped us be at our ease as we potted through the desert on our camel
We thoroughly enjoyed our day. Mustaffa our guide was so lovely. He tried very hard to please us and show us lots of local sights. The meal we had was amazing. Paradise valley was a bit of a disappointment but we enjoyed the walk. The whole day was very enjoyable.
