What People Are Saying About Merzouga
We had an amazing time with our guide, Abe, and driver Mohammad. Abe, who is not typically a guide was actually auditing the trip to ensure it met Ando's standards, and allowed us to have a private tour as my best friend Thomas and I were the only people who had booked the trip for those days. This transformed our tour into a private tour allowing us amazing opportunities. On nearly any topic we found Abe to be knowledgeable, eloquent and honest. Discussions ranged from the state of education, details on architecture and construction, the langua franca, geopolitics, agriculture, the ancient history of the Berber people and everywhere in between. The nights out in the desert were wonderful. The camel ride on the second trip to the dunes is about two or two and a half hours each way, and while it is beautiful it is very cold, which seems intuitively obvious now, but I was not prepared for. Abe generously lent me his coat, which eased the trip considerably, but 5:30AM is frigid.
The trip was good, we, a young couple, enjoyed it very much. Seeing the dunes and sleeping in a berber tent added great value to our trip to Morocco. For the price the value is absolutely great. Beware that the driver does not speak English but some French. Apart from the driver, there were some tours around the old city, oasis, desert and these people spoke French, English and other languages. If you are flexible and not too picky this is absolutely worth it. If you want a luxury fully guided tour, then go for something else. For us, this was great, a nice group of people, a very good and safe bus driver and we got all the essentials in terms of sightseeing.
They picked up in the hotel. Long hours trip with some stops to sightseeing. Nice places and good people. Happy with the experience!
It was spectacular to ride a camel and sleep under stars in desert. Overall trip was such a great value for the price I paid for. First night was at the amazing hotel where we each got private rooms, I loved that. Each local guide spoke fluent English and knew a lot. The staff back in Marrakech also really helped me at the end getting back to my hostel. The only downside was that the entire tour contains mostly the bus ride because we travel a lot. Also the driver spoke very little English so we had no idea where we were and what we were looking at. The lunches are not included in the price, so we had to get our own but basically have no choice but go to the restaurant they organise and get overpriced meals. Afterall, I enjoyed it.
