Our visit to the Sahara was fantastic! The landscapes are stunning. Dris, our guide, was highly knowledgeable and pleasant, often informing us about Arab and Berber culture. He went into detail about the areas we were touring. We spent the first night at the Xaluca Hotel, which was pleasant and served buffet-style meals. The desert camp provided the best experience. The tents resembled hotel rooms. There was everything we needed. The hosts were attentive and served one of the greatest dinners we had in Morocco. The return trip took 9 hours by automobile, which was challenging yet always had Dris' interest. In conclusion, everything went smoothly and met expectations. I recommend it!
Our experience in Morocco
We love Joseph and this tour! From booking to pick-up, everything is simple and catered to our specific needs. Joseph became a buddy, not a mentor. He spoke about history and culture along the way. The camels we rode seemed healthy and well-cared for. The desert camp is comfy. Dinner and breakfast were both wonderful, with some of the greatest things we had during our vacation. The tent is quite comfortable. Wi-Fi and showers are available in each tent! I highly suggest this nature trek to everyone!
