Great value for money trip to the Sahara
Excellent trip and great value for money. Our driver Hajj was a lovely man who drove well and looked after us. The two guides at the stops were also very nice, particularly Ali who showed us around the Tondra gorge. The Sahara camp was basic but the hosts were great and really enjoyed the desert. Would recommend!

3 Days Desert Tour From Marrakech To Merzouga Dunes & Camel Trek
The driver 100% made this trip the best. I was astonished by his knowledge of everywhere we visited and his willingness to share it. The entire trip was enriched by him. I was a solo traveller so he made sure to make sure I felt at home and enjoyed all aspects of the trip. This was a great value an I would do this trip again!

One night camel trekking in Merzouga Desert and Luxury Camp
We had the most incredible experience! Hassan and his crew are so welcoming and kind. I was blown away by the luxury of the campsite and the quality of service. This was, by far, the best part of our trip to Morocco!

THE tour to do in Morocco

3 Days Desert Tour From Marrakech To Merzouga Dunes & Camel Trek
Aioub was an amazing driver and guide. We had a great time visiting Ait Ben Haddou with the local guide, really interesting stories shared, and our visit to the Gorge the next day was equally amazing. Highlight definitely goes to the night in the desert and the camel ride at sunset and Aioub even managed to sneak us into a sunrise Camel ride as well! Don't know how he managed to stay positive, informative and awake during the long ride back, but definitely a memorable experience!

Merzouga Desert to fez trip

Marrakech to Fez via Merzouga Desert 3-Days Morocco Sahara Tour
This trip by far exceeded are expectations. We are staying in Morocco for 2 weeks and couldn’t pass up an opportunity to see all that Morocco has to offer. Our Driver Hamid picked us up in Marrakesh where we started are trek. He was a very kind and nice man. We stopped in many places including his home town in the high atlas where got to experience the Berber way of life. Through out the whole trip he helped us in translating, explaining the culture, and picking the best spots for the perfect photo! My girlfriend and I were the only ones in the transport van since they just opened back up since Covid started. I felt like this was great because it was like we had a private tour guide for 3 days. Day 1:(breakfast and lunch not included) drive to the high Atlas Mountains see the Berber people and their culture and way of life. We stopped at several spots got to ancient building learn the history, see how rugs are made. We ended at one of the nicest riads I’ve stayed in where we had a 3 course meal that was delicious. Day 2: (Lunch not included) we drove to the merzouga desert. Had a few stops a long the way, went to our camp cite by camel. Watched the sunset/sunrise on top of a sand dune. Had dinner listened to some music they played. One thing I do wish they would do is turn off all the lights in the camp because they had quite a few going so we can fully experience the night sky and star gazing. Every tent had a bathroom with shower and hot water. Day 3: (lunch and dinner not included) Our driver took us to fez where we had a few stops along the way and got to see some monkeys. There are locals who will give try to give you food to give to the monkey that you pay for. DONT. There is a sign that says don’t feed to monkeys FYI. It was around a 7 hour drive to fez. Our driver contacted our riad for us and had them meet us. Overall great experience highly recommended.

3-Day Tour: Marrakech to Merzouga by Way of Dadès Valley plus Erg Chebbi Camel Trek
Hakuna Matata was an excellent host and driver, and I would highly recommend Ando travel to anyone. The hotel in Tinghir the first night could have been cleaner, but I don’t think that’s the agency’s fault. In any case, it was just fine for one night. Otherwise, no complaints! Ando gets my full recommendation.

3-Day Tour: Marrakech to Merzouga by Way of Dadès Valley plus Erg Chebbi Camel Trek
I very much enjoyed it. Took some beautiful camel photos, saw a bunch of stars in the desert, the desert camp was surprisingly warm and comfy. I don't think our group had any safety issues (obviously be smart about pickpocketing especially in touristy areas). Personally I loved it

Marrakech to Fez via Merzouga Desert 3-Days Morocco Sahara Tour
Where do I begin. This was the best excursion tour I have ever taken in my life. From start to finish there were surprises, adventure, laughs, singing, dancing, and meeting the friendliest people from Morocco. My friend and I are 2 women traveling, so we did a lot of research and this exceeded all of our expectations and we felt more than safe the entire time. The car ride going to the dessert was incredible. The views are breathtaking - so many layers in the mountains and so many different types. They take us to the high Atlas Mountains, the monkey fingers mountains, valleys, etc. You get to meet so many people along the way, we didn’t expect it but we got to stop at a Berber village and meet their community members. There are so many little stops along the way that make the trip worth it alone. Our driver was excellent, he got us everywhere safely, was friendly, and everything in good timing. Our accommodations we’re ready fantastic. The hotel we stayed in the first night is brand new (it only opened 6 months ago). The beds were very comfortable. The dinner was absolutely delicious, it was a gourmet dinner, which we were pleasantly surprised because it’s like fusion Moroccan food. Then you get to the Sahara dessert. WOW. Just wow. They gave us the option of doing quad bikes through the dessert for an hour to get to the camp. My advice, take this option. It is one of the highlights of this tour. There is an extra cost but it is worth it. The quads then ended right at the camels, where we rode them to sunset. We were hesitant about riding camels at first but after much research we decided that it was the right option for us. The camels looked very well taken care of and Abdul, who was leading the camels, was very gentle with them. The tents at the camp were nice. We opted for the luxury tents because you got your own bathroom. There was hot water which was great. The beds were also comfortable and the tent was warm. The dinner at night was also very good, I had tagine chicken with lemon 3 other times before on this trip throughout Marrakesh and the one they served at the camp site was the best. They served couscous and soup. They took us to the sunset the next morning on camel ride again. We went sandboarding. There is so much to this tour. And then there is Jamil. Our wonderful tour guide! He was incredible from start to finish. He was patient with us and very flexible, while still managing to fit everything in. You could tell he just genuinely cares about seeing people happy. Our group felt like a family by the end of the 3 days and it was a lot because of the atmosphere he created. From singing on the bus together to giving us riddles to solve. He cares about all of the people he works with and the people in the communities we visited. He also made sure we were taken care of every step of the way. This trip was one of the best in my life, and I am so thankful to Marrakesh city life. More than 10/10 stars!
