Great experience if u are willing to spend long hours in a mini ban through very bumpy and under development roads. As the other reviews said the driver makes few stops in crappy road restaurants for quick stops or meals, which I didn't care as I didn't took this trip for fancy meals. Excursions are interesting and of course u have to tip everybody. Best experience and the main reason is to arrive to the entrance to the desert. Camel ride was fun both ways , best is the sunset and sunrise from the Dunes. Berber Camp was fun too, with a nice dinner and music, seeing the clear sky by night was quite special too. Recommended if u want to sleep at the dessert and ride camels. Beware of the 8 -9 hours in the car each way.

You have to be aware of the long bus journey (8-10 hours / day). The minibus is comfortable and the driver is nice. I was disappointed with Ait-Ben-Haddou. The local guide felt compelled to run with him a bit; I did not get any real more information from him. The entrance fee of 25MAD was to be paid to him (but I did not see an official cash register). During the tour, you were taken to the hill of the city, from where you have a beautiful view. Unfortunately that wasn't more than that. The cloth you should buy at the end of the tour does not necessarily have to be. In the desert you should bring a head and neck cover against the sun + possibly something for whirling sand. The camel ride was a unique experience, as was the overnight stay in the desert. The sunset and rise were great, as well as watching the stars and seeing the moon rise. Overall, a nice, albeit exhausting, excursion.

Nice 2 day trip. Maybe the 3 day option is more convenient if you have the time because you get a bit tired of the bus. Everything was perfect but take into account that the places where you stop are going to be expensive for moroccan standards (I guess they had some kind of deal).
