All I can say is what an amazing place to visit. Saw it on TV and was impressed but close up this place just has to be one of the most fascinating places on the planet. I would certainly suggest that everyone makes a point of visiting at some point in their life.

When you are there, you can feel like you were on Tatooine :) What surprised me the most is that in the movie town where the action takes place seems to be very big, but in fact it's so small... But anyway this place has a special climate, which only a star wars fan will feel... I strongly recommend this... More

It was one of the most incredible experiences that I ever had in my life. I spent two days and one night on Sahara desert, sleeping on tents, walking with camels, eating the typical food and enjoying the sunsite and sunrise. If you are going to Morocco, this is a mandatory thing to do.

My son and I took a couple of days out from a holiday in Jerba to do this trip and what an incredible experience. We drove in 4 x 4's through the dessert, stopping at the location for the original Star Wars was filmed, through a valley with houses carved into the walls and stayed over night in a bedowin...

I loved every minute of my 2 night trip to the Sahara, our host (the driver) for 3 days was fun, helpful and patient. The Sahara was just stunning, sleeping under the stars was a fantastic experience, food was good and staff helpful and friendly. The camels were fab :D :D :D An awesome experience.

It was a lonely, silent, peaceful, gorgeous, warm and amazing three days trip. We felt alone in the desert, and it was exactly what we wanted... and the night part is like a dream. The team is also nice and kind. Becareful after 3 days you might have pain somewhere ;)

We did the Sahara trip with our holiday rep. We were told it was a two day trip, which it was. Everything we saw and did was excellent but just a word of warning, if you are thinking of doing this trip, the amount of time you spend on the bus is awful. There are long stretches were you don't... More

Well if you want to go back in time this is the place to visit. Went camel back riding and caught in a sandstorm what an amazing experience. The dunes are something to marvel at.

We took the 3 day trip while on holiday in Tunisia and wow! What an experience! The highlight for me was the camel ride through the Sahara. An absolutely fantastic day! Yes, the camels were smelly. Yes, the street vendors at the meeting point were annoying. Yes, the trip was a little overpriced. But we got to see one of... More

This tour was absolutely amazing and I would definitely recommend it. There is so much packed into 2 days. We particularly liked the amphitheatre and camel rides. We booked with Inventa Tourisme before we left. They arranged everything and met us at our hotel the day we arrived for payment and to answer any questions.
