Amily N – Feb 2022:

Since we only had 3 days and a half in Morocco, we thought it was a shame not to see some sort of a desert. After exchanging emails with Marrakech Desert Trips, they convinced us to stay around Marrakech, and go for a day trip to Agafay desert. Honestly, it was a lot fun, even this one is totally different from the desert we have in mind. At the end of the day, we ended up with a very good tour, delicious lunch, spectacular camel ride and friendly driver / guide Ibrahim

Dale S – Oct 2021:

Our tour guide was both knowledgeable and kind. We spent a fascinating day in the Agafay Desert, visiting a Berber village (where we had the most delicious lunch with breath-taking views) and taking a short climb up the mountain to another town with one of the village ladies. Lots of photo stops especially by the lake, and all in all, a fantastic day.

Christian R – Feb 2021:

They picked us up on schedule from our Riad, and Ali has made sure we've been taken care of since then. He explained everything to us in detail from the first minute and made the entire tour delightful and exciting. I've been to over 50 countries across six continents, and this was one of the finest top three trips I've ever experienced. Great car, fantastic experience, delectable meal, and a very friendly and informative tour lead by Ali!
