Fantastic 3 day desert tour from Marrakech to Merzouga with my brother. Our guide Hmad was superb, treated us like family, and took great care of us. He speaks many languages and kept us entertained throughout the trip. He’s funny too! Had a wonderful stay in luxury camp, with live music and bonfire, under a starry sky. He stopped at many photo taking spots and was very patient with us. Thank you so much for this memorable trip.
