    What a wonderful 3 day trip. We loved the route and the stops along the way. The overnight stay in the desert was rewarding with our discussions with our guide. Thank you for adapting the route to our final destination in the Atlas Mountains.

    Finally, a special thanks to our driver and guide Ali Bouyakbane for accompanying us so well and answering our many questions about the country and its people.

    My friends and I booked the three day trip from Fez to Marrakech. | Our guide was called Hamid Aouich. He was super friendly, knew the sites very well, and other geographic facts. He was also a careful driver. A great guy. I loved him so much. Ask to take the excursion with him when booking. You will not be disappointed. |

    The excursion itself was also really nice. A bit touristy, but overall it was a great trip. It's a long journey, so be prepared for it. Merzouga was pretty cool. We camped in the dunes with (former) Berber nomads (at least ours were). They were younger and were really inspirational. They learn different languages ​​just from the tourists who come and go. | I highly recommend this excursion. Safe and reliable (which can be difficult sometimes when you are in Morocco.)
