3 reviews for 4 Day Atlas Mountain Sahara Tour

  1. Fabio

    Our driver Said is really nice guide, knows a lot about country, local culture always nice to talk with, always on time. And we were lucky with berber camp – we got free update to glamping (tent with shower and huge bed). So desert is amazing, you know it yourself but take really warm clothes especially in January))

  2. Didi

    Unforgettable experience from A to Z. Our super fun and helpful driver. Stra recommended!

  3. Lara

    It is worth taking the 4-day tour. Clean accommodations and great hospitality staff. Our guide Hamid was very professional and helpful. The night in the desert was positive, tents and bathrooms clean. The dromedary return from the camp to Merzouga is a bit too hasty. Recommended for newcomers to Morocco.
