This trip was by far my top experience! From the moment of pick up at the airport, our tour guide (Khalil) was extremely friendly and professional. We were in constant communication prior to the trip which eased my fears going abroad. I definitely recommend this private tour because there’s so much more you can get from the experience that you wouldn’t get on a large tour bus. I went with two of my girlfriends and had a great time. We traveled from CasaBlanca to Marrakech but each day we stayed at a different raid or hotel which was a great experience to see something new each day. Since it was a private tour, many times you can choose to stop at shops or market places or ofcourse take photos(: we also went camel back riding at the Sahara and ATV riding in Marrakech. The food is great, lovely culture, people and country. If you are looking for an adventurous, exotic, Yet relaxing- girls or couples trip? I definitely recommend this trip. I really enjoyed my experience.
We asked for a trekking program in the southern Moroccan desert. DesertBrise Travel has concocted a magnificent program with excellent service. We were taken care of in Marrakech at our Riad, a day's drive to Mhamid with pludierus stop including one in a restaurant with delicious multiole dishes in a fabulous setting. In Mhamid an efficient, friendly and professional team awaited us. Our youngest son of 8 years old, as well as one of his 12 year olds loved their days on the back of a dromedary (which you can ride if you don't want to walk). The meals were delicious (tagine, couscous, sand bread ...) a king's menu in the desert. Camel driver, cook and guide were adorable. Only positive and only one desire, leave with DesertBrise Travel. THANKS
Fabulous trip in the desert of Morocco! Very practical for covering a large distance in a short time. However, we spend most of the time by car, but the landscapes are magnificent. Our guide, khalil, was very pleasant, funny and professional, which made the trip even more interesting. In addition, he speaks English very well, which we did not expect! We recommend this agency!
My friend and I took a 3-day tour from Marrakech, to Merzouga and the Erg Chebbi dunes, to arrive in Fez. Our guide khalil made the experience perfect since he is friendly, he spoke French and drove very well on difficult roads. He explained to us what we saw on the road, told us about the customs of the country and answered all our questions. He knew a lot and was very interesting. We saw the most magnificent landscapes, spent an unforgettable night in a Berber tent in the dunes and discovered the Dades gorges which have become our favorite place in Morocco. I highly recommend Morroco Desert Tour, these are well organized circuits that are definitely worth a visit. And I wish you to have khalil as your guide!
