What a magical 4 days of Sahara Tour We are two girls traveling together first time in Morocco. We booked our Marrakesh-Sahara tour via their FB page, which was a breeze. Their communication was quick and thorough. We were given the contacts of our driver a few days before the trip, and we had easy communication via WhatsApp. Our driver was Abdrahim and he was very kind and easy going, and had really good driving skills (we drove through quite a lot of mountain and dessert roads), he is always happy to help with our requests. In short, the trip was BEYOND EXPECTATION! The driver, the food, the accommodation, the places visited, the attention to detail... and also the price, everything was A+. Throughout the whole trip we received messages daily from their staff to check and see if we’re OK, and give us reminders for the next day. We would totally book with them again if we ever return to Morocco. The details: Day 1: Ait Benhaddou Our driver picked us up at our hotel on time, we stopped by a Berber restaurant for breakfast, visited Ait-Benhaddou and climbed to the top, and stopped by a few towns to take pics afterwards. First night we stayed at Riad Rihanna, which was recommended by the company, and it was beyond expectation. The dinner (which was included) was SO GOOD, literally high-end restaurant quality. They even had after dinner music entertainment. The room was clean and spacious, and they warmed it up with a gas heater before dinner. The view of night sky full of stars and the valley in the morning was amazing. Day 2: Dades Gorges, Todra Gorge After having a nice breakfast, we first visited the nearby Dades Gorges with the instagram worthy zig-zag roads and a cliff side hotel. Then we went to Todra Gorges to see the tall canyons that is breathtaking to witness in person. Afterwards we drove towards the Erg Chebbi entrance hotel. Day 3: Merzouga Sahara Desert In the morning we visited a Sahara Berber music and dance performance, had mint tea under a real nomad tent and met a sweet nomad girl, and in the afternoon we went to a Berber carpet shop with a very enthusiastic owner who showed us so many intricate handmade pieces and offered Berber pizza for lunch which tasted delicious. Around 5:30 PM we began the most anticipated part of our trip which is the camel ride into the desert! We were amazed by the desert itself and the serenity, and we stopped by the Erg and took some pictures mid way, before heading for the magic tent for a night’s stay. By the time we arrived it was around sunset, we were greeted kindly by the staff at the camp, and just chilled by the gazebo to watch the pastel colored sunset. The campsite is very stylish, and the room (tent) was hotel quality with marble finished sink. The dinner was held at the large tent, and the food was great and filling. After dinner there was also a music performance by the bonfire. Around 11PM, we asked the staff to turn off the outdoor lighting so we can see the starry sky clearly. There is really no word to describe the starry night at the desert. You will need to see it for yourself. It is truly magical. Day 4: Back to Marrakech, with surprisingly beautiful views along the way After having a filling breakfast at the campsite, we began our trip back to Marrakech. We thought the 12 hour drive would be a bit boring, but when we passed through the atlas mountains, we happened to see the snow left over from the previous night. It was a nice surprise and also a stunning scenery. We have seen the valley, the desert, and now the snow mountain! The beautiful landscapes along the way back made it an easy trip and our driver was kind enough to help us pickup our luggage from our previous hotel and drove us to a new riad we’re staying at. Thanks for arranging this wonderful tour and giving me and my friend a memorable trip to Sahara.
