My wife and I went on a 2 days  tour from Marrakech to Merzouga and the Sahara Desert. The company was really helpful and professional from the beginning to the finish of the trip. Our guide, Youssef, was extremely informed about Morocco and provided answers to any questions we had. He boasted to us that our driver, Mohammed, was Africa's best driver, which he showed to be correct! Both were wonderful people with whom I had the pleasure of spending several days.

We are a group of five individuals who have booked a 2 days tour from Marrakech to Merzouga. In comparison to other companies, they provided reasonable rates for a routine trip.
We were pleased with the quality of the lodgings, breakfast, and dinner; our driver's wit - Ali, a local guy born in Merzouga's desert; and the fascinating anecdotes recounted by the desert tour guide - the son of nomads.
