    Nous avons profité de leurs services de taxi, et d'une excursion de deux jours. Pour le taxi : bonne prise en charge avec une pancarte à la sortie de l'aéroport. Prix intéressant ! Pour l'excursion, nous avons fait deux jours pour le désert de Zagora avec un chauffeur privé (Hakim, que nous remercions encore personnellement). Très bonne organisation, chauffeur de confiance et souriant avec qui nous avons pu échanger tout au long du voyage ! Les paysages sur le trajet sont magnifiques, le camp "caravane du sud était très beau (dans un coin tranquille au milieu de dunes) et l'accueil charmant, le repas et la nuit dans le bivouac était magique et le retour tout aussi bien. Merci pour tout, nous avons passé un moment exceptionnel.

    The trip was really fun but too short! The car trip it’s very beautiful because you go through the Atlas Mountains with amazing views but it’s 360km from Marrakesh and the road it’s not straight so it takes almost 7 hours to get there. It’s fun to do because you stop few times to visit different things on the way but I I wish we had more time in the desert. We only spent one night with dinner and breakfast, we saw the sunset and sunrise riding camels so it’s very suggestive and beautiful but for such a long way I would recommend to do at least 2 days. The camp in the desert was very well equipped and the people and food both amazing. Ali, our driver, was amazing! We loved him from the first moment, he’s very helpful, he speaks fluent italian, english, French and Arabian so you won’t have any problems with him. He took us to the best places to eat and he took care of us even in the desert camp to make sure we had all we needed. I recommend this trip and the agency was very easy to communicate with and honest price/service for something that is a private tour. Thank you Ali and first Marrakesh tours!

    Our trip to Zagora from Marrakech was simply magical. Abdelhak was not only a great driver but also a considerate guide and a wonderful companion to have with us on our adventure. He was able to give us great information about all of the places that we visited and made the journey easy and enjoyable, stopping for brilliant photo opportunities, and well-timed coffees. Thank you Abdelhak! We are so pleased that we were advised to book the private desert tour by our rep Simo (rather than the cheaper group option) as we felt especially well looked after and enjoyed having private accommodation and an intimate evening meal at the camp. Doing a group tour day trip later in our holiday confirmed for us that the private tour was worth every penny. Lunch is not included in the price, but on both days we were taken to reasonably priced restaurants with very good food. The camel ride was brilliant, as was our experience at the camp. Definitely book a trip to the desert if you are visiting Marrakech!

    I had always been reluctant to have a trip to the desert. I always thought there were actually not many activities to do there. But I was wrong. A friend of mine recommended First Marrakech Tours and their desert 2-day tour into the Zagora Desert. The dunes on camelback were breathtaking and the sunset was nothing I had seen before. At night, there was a fire camp and I just haven't forgotten the sensation yt. Anyway, the staff was cool and everything went well. I can't recommend these guys more :)

    Thank you FMT for your sweet and hilarious presence while guiding us through your beautiful country and for sure we will definitely be coming back next year and explore more places with you

    Best experience with First Marrakech Tour and all staff was friendly. It is my third time and asap there will be more adventures in that country. I would highly recommend it for others!

    On our honeymoon my wife and I booked this tour thru Viator. Our driver/guide Wassim was great! Met us out front of our Ryad. And took us on a smooth ride with lunch and a tour of a Kasbah. Once we got to the camp (by camel!!) our host Yasin went above and beyond!! Though he did trick me into thinking the tea was “Berber Whiskey”!! It was delicious tea anyway. Definitely recommend it this trip to all adventurers!!! Check us out with Wissam:
