    It was really an unique experience that you must have it once in a lifetime. We were lucky to have Said as our driver. He was a very kind man who teached us a lot about Berbers culture, and the history behind all of the places we visited. I definitely recommend him not only as your driver but as a tour guide.

    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.
