Jhon

We started a 5 days tour from Marrakech to the desert of Merzouga. We have been a group of 10 friends in a minibus driven and guided by Ismael, a real Berber, delighted to show us the desert, its culture and its people. The landscapes are dreamlike, picturesque and authentic, the people are cordial and super friendly, and the food is exquisite. And the desert, with its huge dunes, its silence, its blanket of stars... the best.
The organization was very efficient and willing to help you with any questions. A 10 in everything. All 5 stars.
