Well worth it!
Amazing trip! The drive is extremely long, but weirdly doesn’t feel too long as you have a number of stops along the way. Our driver out was quiet the whole way, but on the way back our new driver gave us so many interesting facts and insight as we went. Camel riding - ouch! But definitely one worth ticking off the bucket list. Great dinner in the evening too!

1 night in the desert - amazing driver
The trip was pretty good, everybody is kind and so on. But what was the best is our driver - Abdul Magid. He is very kind and talented and has lots of infos. He is a wikipedia of Morocco. He makes exciting your 8 hours in the van. You just need to ask and he knows. You are gonna be lucky if he is going to be your driver. Thanks again Abdul Magid!!! 👌🏽👌🏽

Staying in the stunning Sahara desert
Oct. 2019
Really good driver who took us to lovely palm spring spots and old villages where we had tours, breaking up the 8 hour drive helps a lot with activities! I remember driving towards the Sahara and being blown away, literally was so beautiful and special for me and my partners 1st holiday. The camel riding is so fun and they help to take lots of scenic photographs of you, when you get back to the campsite you get your own tent with electricity and a working flush! The food was beautiful followed by authentic african drumming, dancing then a visit to the desert to see the stars. Everyone was so lovely and accommodating, I will never forget this experience!

Moon light in the Desert
Oct. 2019
Camel ride and camp in the desert exceeded expectations.The hosts at the camp were very good as was the camel guide .The transport from Fez was far below expectations.
We left both Fez and the Desert late so were always in a rush. 7 to 8 hours was not enough time to cover the distance so the driver was speeding and passing in unsafe situations. Maybe normal for Morocco .Highly recommend the Desert ride

A Must Do
Sep. 2019 • Friends
We were AMAZED at this entire tour. My friend and I did the 2 day/one night tour from Fez to Fez. Our driver was Hannah (the desert man) and was extremely accommodating, informative, and kind. He truly had our well being in mind and helped make this such a great trip! We did t really feel like the drive was that long since the views were so great and there were many stops to break it up. The Sahara was breathtaking and is a must do if you are visiting Morocco. Seriously. Additionally- they do offer some things to buy, but never pressure you. If you feel pressure it is likely pressure you are just putting on yourself. Only advice is that the beds don’t have sheets but are just blankets over a mattress. Still comfortable and clean, but if that grosses you out maybe bring a bedsheet. Food was great, camel riding was worth it but will make you a little sore. Overall- loved it!!

From fes to Sahara
Jun. 2019 • Couples
We had an amazing, friendly and knowledgeable driver (Abdoel). This made 8 hour drive to the Sahara easy and fun. On the way we stopped a couple of times to take photographs of the middle and high atlas. The dessert tour was great as well. Friendly people, friendly camels and we experienced no big touristgroups.

Experience of a lifetime
Mar. 2019 • Couples
Although the drive was quite long, we were prepare for it and enjoyed the landscape for the 8 hours it took to get to the desert. Our driver was very kind, spoke very good English and knew a lot about the area.
The staff at the camp was amazing, the camel ride was fantastic despite the rainy and cloudy weather.
The accommodation (the tents) completely exceeded our expectations, there were showers and a toilet with big beds and blankets.
The food was good at the camp.
The food we got on the way there and back wasn't good and caused us an upset stomach for 2 days.
I would absolutely recommend the tour!!

Great experience, but 2 big warnings
Oct. 2018 • Family
The staff were great and this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but this isn't luxe, by any means. Beware: 1) The food prep areas in both the restaurants we stopped in while traveling to the desert and back, and the one at the camp, had many flies. Even though we stuck to bottled water, all 3 in our group ended up with GI bugs for 48+ hours after, so only eat thoroughly cooked or pre-packed food. 2) Bring your own pillowcase and full PJs, at a minimum (or sheets) as the bedding isn't washed daily. As long as you're willing to rough it, the experience was well worth it and the photos are terrific.

The Desert part was Amazing. The driving was less amazing
Sep. 2018 • Friends
So I am torn on my review. If I could just rate the desert, it would be so much higher, but the driving portion would be lower.
Let's start with the good:
The desert is wonderful. It happened to be cloudy when we went so no stars and even a little rain. But who cares! That first ride on the camels, the sand, it was magical! The food was very good. The campfire drums were fun. Yes, that part was a once in a lifetime experience.
Now the bad: One reviewer mentioned a 7 hour drive each way. For us, it was approximately 9 hours each way. 18 hours total. When you think about the fact that part of your time in the desert you are sleeping, you spend more time in the car than on the desert trip. Fine. But the drive just wasn't great. Our driver wasn't incredibly friendly and some of the stops were not so interesting (little Switzerland, the souk on the way home). The biggest problems for me were 1. The driver was texting while driving several times. 2. At the end of the tour on the second day the driver told us we will learn about Berber handi-crafts when actually, they are really trying to sell us carpets for 6,000 dir. Something, we weren't interested in and it felt awkward and pressured to buy. 3. The driver did not drop us off nor show us how to get to the Riad we were staying at. Instead he passed us off to a man on the street who we had to pay to take us to the Riad. 4. We had to ask to eat on the way home at around 2:00. Keep in mind that we ate a small breakfast at 7.
We may have just gotten a grumpy driver or he was having a bad day but it definitely changed our experience.

Dear , Thank you for taking the time to write your Feedback about the Trip , we are happy to hear that you enjoyed the Interesting part of the Trip ;the Overnight in the Desert Camp . To clarified a couple of thing you Mentioned on the Review ; The Drive is 7 Hours + the time of the stops and time for Lunch ,we don’t drive street we make several stops ( The info of 7 Hours drive you get it from another Reviewer not from our Team ,we Normally clarified ). About the no Interesting places or stops , You Had the Itinerary & you were the only ones in the Car ,So you could skip the stops you are not Interested to … For the Lunch there is Few Villages where you can find a good places they offer Fresh and good Food ,That’s not Available Everywhere you Especially Most of the Drive is out side cities & you took the same Road twice ,but the driver should organise that with you in advanced . Now we come to the Most Important Part the DRIVE ,a lot of Travellers they noticed when they Contact us to Book one of our Tours that we offered a limit Period to confirm the tour and we don’t Leave it open to Book any time Cause of the Limit Number of our Professional drivers/guides we have ,sometimes Travellers they complain when we used someone out of our Team ,like what’s Happen now ,Cause they didn’t Get the Full Services they Expected and we are used to Offer . Cause of Health Problem we had to change the Driver were planned to join you for the Trip ,we choosed a Colleague who Had a Good Reviews on Trip Advisor too and that’s were the reason Behind choosing him . For the Drop off ,the Driver pick you up from a Hotel and in the way back you changed hotel to a Riad inside the Medina a place he didn’t know and not possible to get there by the Car ,He called us we provide him the location ,when he arrived to the closest parking Two Minutes from your Riad he arranged someone to carry your Luggage and show you the pay and He Missed to pay 2 euros to Him ,I think it’s not a Big Deal. I hope this wouldn't give you the wrong idea about our services. From the bottom of my heart, on behalf of the team,I sincerely apologize on this Experience . I really appreciate on your feedback,and I hope you won't hesitate to use our services again in the future.. Warm Regards Mhamed

Highlight of my trip to Morocco
Aug. 2018 • Family
So I didn't really understand how this was going to work - I should have read more reviews. On the other hand if I knew I was going to spend the better part of two days in a car in order to spend roughly 14 hours in the desert I might not have done it, and it was fantastic. The driver, Moustafa, was good - we got caught in a heavy downpour in the mountains but we managed due to his laser focus on the driving - we saw a few accidents. The stop at Ifrane was ok - nothing much to see -- the monkeys were fantastic, but it made me a bit uncomfortable how comfortable they are around humans - who feed them - and one vendor threw rocks at a monkey (who was sampling his wares). The visit to the Sahara was magical - to have seen that sky with millions of stars and planets was worth everything. The "camp" was a glamp - beds, solar powered lights, excellent dinner. The camels were sweet. The visit to a Saharan city (forgot the name) was very interesting, though I find that all medina guides have a similar script --- it was still very pleasant. Also all the drivers seem to go to the same restaurants on the way there and back. Which was OK because the food was good. There are cheaper ways to do this, but it was a luxury to be driven and taken care of and not have to think through every move - plus it was timed just right. Oh - bring a scarf or expect to buy one (50 dh) because sandstorms are real. Also they will make you buy two bottles of water at an inflated price (10 dh). Just do it. Not worth arguing.
