Really loved the tour and especially the guide! Wow, we had the best guide in the world! The stops were incredible and our driver really took the time with us and gave us a really personalized tour. The only downside about the activity is that our camp was a bit out of the desert, instead of right next to it or in it. Also during the camel ride to camp you could always see the edge of the desert. I wished to have been really in the desert not on the outskirts. But wow the colors of the desert were just unreal and being there was so magical!

Very beautiful excursion but the return journey is excessively long... perhaps it would be better to intersperse everything with other stages... I understand the difficulty and the distances... in any case, an experience worth doing for those who want to see the "real" desert...

Such a great tour with amazing guides. The drive was long but the coffee breaks and attractions were spaced out perfectly and broke up the long journey. The camp was beautiful, clean, and comfortable and food was delicious!!

Amazing! Mazouzi was such an amazing guide, he took great care of us. Worth every penny!!

So many different experiences in the four days and we loved every moment.
