    Ipv van kleine groep zaten we in een groep van meer dan 50 p. Ipv een privé tent moesten we deze delen met 3 anderen. Ipv sunset kwamen we in het donker aan. Jammer dat je twee dagen van elk 13u in bus zit voor alleen slapen in een tent waarvoor je veel betaald en je medereizigers iets meer dan de helft hebben betaald.

    De beaux paysages mais il ne faut pas s’attendre à voir le désert au l´arrivée. Préférez Merzouga...

    Hemos contratado el transfer, la estancia, y el tour por el desierto de Zamora con Argania travel. Todo perfecto. Desde el primer momento nos sentimos seguros y acogidos. Nuestro chófer Mohamed, además de hablar un español perfecto nos hizo partícipes de su cultura y costumbres . Nos asesoró sobre el resto de la estancia, normas al tomar taxis, zonas para salir, sitios para disfrutar de una puesta de sol.... Y siempre con buena música y buen humor. Realmente estas personas marcan la diferencia entre un buen viaje, y uno perfecto. El Riad en que nos alojamos, Dar Ben Brahim también perfecto. Limpio, los desayunos buenísimos, muy bien situado y con una azotea con zona de relax y chill out

    El chofer no hablaba ni pizca de español. Habíamos contratado tour en español. El guía tampoco hablaba español, nos dio el tour en inglés. En el desierto el paseo en camello bien, las dunas son chiquititas, si quieres las de la foto contrata Merzouga, la cena en el desierto bien, aunque nunca nos dijeron que el agua o refrescos no están incluidos en la cena y tú debes llevar lo que quieras tomar. los colchones y cobijas sucias. El desayuno del desierto bien. La camioneta bien. El viaje muy muy largo.

    Overall this is a really good and worthwhile tour but there's plenty of room for improvement. On the cons: At the outset tourists were shuffled around different buses like cattle by rude and pushy guards. Our bus was really small and we had 18 pax in a bus made for 16 - really uncomfortable. There's no dedicated guide on the trip so bring your guidebooks. And there's no clarity of info on what to bring on the desert excursion. And one more: Consider that this is too long a tour to do in two days - most of it is on the bus with toilet stops at tourist cafes. On the plus side, you cover some amazing country and some interesting sights all better with some better explanation, and you can't always stop to explore. The desert excursion is interesting and worthwhile. We were a group of four and, in hindsight, we should have explored a private tour similar to this trip which I'm sure would provide a much better experience and better value overall.
