  • The unprecedented trip! We took a three day (two nights) trip from Marrakech to Merzouga in early January. And we can heartily recommend! It was by far the highlight of our trip, and among the most beautiful we've seen. Driving through the Atlas mountains, visit the Kasbah Ait Benhaddou-and ride the Dromedary into the desert where they spend the night in a Berber camp was an incredible experience. Said was incredibly helpful in booking process, I contacted both him and several other companies already in the fall with our interest in the tour and he gave a great impression. While the other companies gave short responses (where the main point was that we should transfer money as soon as possible in order to secure the booking ...) showed Said a genuine interest that we would find a trip that suited us. He informed us about the route, the various travel options and was honest with what he thought we would like best about (e.g., from the beginning, we wanted to travel to Zagora but then he explained to Merzouga would be a much better choice). In the end we took with our reservation until we arrived in Marrakesh and at that time he organized the cleanly at the last minute, the day before we went. He also arranged the vegetarian diet for us at all places and restaurants. Our guide Hicham No. 1 picked us up the next morning at our hotel and then went to the adventure. Hicham was incredibly nice and above all an incomparable guide. He had answers to all our questions about Morocco's country and culture and many interesting stories to tell about all our stops along the way. In addition, he was a very talented drivers on the narrow roads of the mountains and we felt safe. He tailored the trip after our interests and both added and picked off stop after what we wanted to see. We recommend him highly! All the restaurants we visited were great and rentals as well. The first night we spent at the family-run hotel Dar el Panorama, night then we rode dromedaries in the desert and sleep left in a desert camp with much higher standard than we dared to hope for. A big tent with electricity, double bed and real restrooms right outside. Enjoy a homemade tagine and traditional music that was played around a campfire were also not bad ... It was very cold at night but Said and Hicham had informed us about it, so we were ready with a good many layers and several blankets and then it went well anyway. The next day we rode back to the village at the heart of the Sunrise before it was time to begin the 60-mile journey back to Marrakech. A day in the car, but it made us not so much. The route was lined by beautiful views and interesting stories from Hicham. I was tired after the Dromedary-the ride and all impressions also took the sleep a little ...:-) In summary, one of our best outings. Gorgeous views and a very well organized trip. We can highly recommend Said, Hicham No. 1 and the whole of Morocco Desert Trips!
