Reviews about our 2 days desert tour Marrakech to Zagora
Wonderful 2 days desert tour from Marrakech to Zagora
Everything was as shown; we spent on an upgrade for a private camp with toilets and showers and that was certainly deserving it. The driver was very helpful and the 2 days tour went smoothly and easily.
The desert camp and our Berber guide were excellent and it was an enjoyable experience, all in all, camel riding fun, and the food in the camp really good. Sunset and sunrise in the camp were breathtaking.
I would not do this trip with small children because there is a lot of driving (each day around 360 km), but it was fine for us. Important tip: if you get car sick, surely take some medication with you, because there is driving over mountains and twisting roads. We didn't have those problems and completely enjoyed our experience.
Excellent Zagora desert trip
The pick up from the riad was on time, the trip was good and the driver spoke very good English and was helpful and friendly.
Moreover, we had enough stops on the way, therefore we took beautiful shots.
The requirements in the desert camp were much better than expected and the people there were friendly and served us good food. The second day we made it back to Marrakech on time.
On the way, the Lunches were good at a calm restaurant. Overall it was an excellent adventure and we are already considering a Merzouga - Fes trip for our next Morocco trip.
Thank you Mustapha! You are the best driver. One of the best trips I've ever had.
We were doubtful about making this desert trip because it needed a lot of driving. Your life is in the hands of someone you don't know, and all that time in the car could be tedious.
I'm happy we took the opportunity because our driver was excellent. The driver was extremely clean, he drove amazingly well, also he speaks four languages fluently and took us to unique spots .
Also, the landscape was continually changing, so we were amazed at each turn. Completely worth it. Looking forward to do a longer trip.
