    It was a long drive to get to Zagora from Marrakech but Houssine made the trip comfortable with appropriate stops. We stopped at the Ben Al Haddou a UNESCO heritage site where many movies were shot including Gladiator and Game of Thrones. A local guide brought us around the site. After that we journey to Zagora where we had a camel ride to our tents. Ayob and Idris were helpful in making our stay comfortable. We had good food, good local music around a campfire and a good sleep. In the morning we woke up and trekked our way up a nearby hill for sunrise. We then had breakfast and took a camel ride back to our van where Houssine is there waiting. Houssine then drove us back to Marrakech. His professionalism is to be commended as he frequently ensures that we are comfortable throughout the journey. If you are short on time this maybe the one to go. Note that there are two tent sites in the area, one with en-suite bathrooms and one with shared bathrooms.

    We come back today from our trip and we cannot stay happiest, Everything was incredible, First, pick up with our driver kiki in our hotel he type us 5 minutes before to arrive to make sure everything was in order, after jump in at the van, he was super fun and knowledgeable during the full days that he was with us, taking care of our staff and helping us in all that he can. Amazing guy. It is a long ride in 2 days but he make that time runs with his jokes. After that we were visiting atlas mountains and the best for us was the time with camels in the camp. We booked the most expensive option but it deserves. Our room was incredible. You never expect to see something like this in the desert. Sunrise was so cool, it is an experience that you must to do it at least one time in your life, the guys of the camp are great and really helpful. Food was amazing. We are already planing our next tour with them. Best choice ever.

    Karim our driver was really incredible and kept us entertained on this journey. Moulay our guide, took us into a beautiful village to meet Berber families and engage in the traditions of carpet making. Todgha gourje was so beautiful and the desert is something unbelievable. I hope I can do this trip again in future and more! Thank you for this experience - I enjoyed meeting all these wonderful people. Isabelle and Anja

    I am glad I did this trip but I would not ever do it again. We got on the very nice Mercedes Sprinter van at 7:15am. The communication via what’s app was perfect. Once all the people had been loaded from all the stops, we left. It is a 6.5 hour drive. We arrived at the desert at 7:15pm. So, it was a long day of travel. Beautiful countryside that we are so glad we were able to see. Mountains, desert, olive trees and date palms, as far as the eye can see. The USB’s on the van did not work. And the air conditioning was okay. Not great. We stopped many times along the way. At an old city where they have made movies, we had a 1.5 hour tour. The walk for us was difficult and fast. The lunch there was good and cost $10. We had to also pay the guide there $3. We stopped along the way at restrooms and a grocery store. Once we arrived at the camel stop, we loaded our luggage onto a camel and left for a one hour ride to the camp. The men working with the camels were incredible! Very hard working and kind. We paid for the upgraded camp with a full bathroom. The bed was comfortable and had nice linens. Unfortunately, our tent had little to no water. Toilet worked fine. The dinner was served under the stars and we felt like royalty. Awesome food, great service. They are there for your every need. We climbed the mountain of sand the next morning (hard climb) to watch the sunrise. Incredible! We then loaded up and headed back to the van. 1/2 hour ride on the camels. The ride back to Marrakesh was a bit shorter, but we still stopped for a 1 hour tour and then lunch. We did stop at a rug shop. It was in the mountains and the price of the rugs was 1/3 the price of the Medina. And beautiful. All in all, I am glad we went. Do not go in the summer. It is just too hot. But we knew it would be. I am glad we had the experience, but we were not prepared for the 12 hours in the van. We did stop a lot and the people were just great. But it made for a long couple of days. I would have loved more time in the tent village to relax and talk. By the time we got there, dinner was served and it was time to go to bed. Awesome views of the Atlas Mountains and the place where they filmed Game of Thrones.

    My favourite part was the Sahara desert. The trip was also enhanced by Abdou, who was friendly and helpful

  • 14-Jul-2022

    It was amazing. The staff is incredible. I will be back soon. Everything okay, the food, the “hotel” in the desert.

  • 05-Jul-2022

    Super nice! In addition to the desert, you get to see much of Morocco's culture and history. A lot of time in the car but it's worth it, our guide Yossef made it very fun so the car-time did not felt so long. We stayed in many places and he was very knowledgeable and explained everything we could possibly want to know. Thanks!
