  • Be careful what you are paying for! Unfortunately, we agreed to book a 3 day tour with the property we stayed in Marrakech to the desert which was very disappointing. In other words it was an absolute rip-off full of overpriced restaurants (no other option offered) and unpleasant service by the tour operator. In our second half of the week we found out how cheap it can be eating in Morocco. The actual trip to the desert was very anticlimactic with only a 20min camel ride to the camp and zero evening program, little food given (they were surprised how many of us arrived to the camp and we had to share food among 8 people that you normally share in three-four people) and no information whatsoever given to us at any point of the tour. We missed both the sunrise and the sunset. Our complaints to the operators during the tour were utterly ignored. The guy's name who owned the camels and operated the camp was Hassan and let me tell you he was a proper a**hole, absolutely rude guy giving no sh*t on what you had paid for. On our 10hr way back we learned from other travellers that their experience was outstanding with long camel rides, great food and entertainment provided coupled with great customer service. There are multiple camps and tour operators in Merzouga and the quality varies significantly from our experience. We also learned it does not matter how much you pay as we paid 850 MAD/person while other people in our group spent nearly half as much and got the same service. We feel bad for leaving a negative review here but it is pretty much impossible to find out the tour operator's name as they throw people into vans as they please and mixing it all together.
