my boyfriend and i was planing a trip to the désert recently,and we were disturb by lot of touts in Rissani.

when we arrived at 6 in the morning by CTM bus, we found about 7 people waiting for us for selling to us there excursion and transportation to Mérzouga.and the CTM driver told us to go with them, we understand he wanted the com...) we feeled really big strees! and we decided to go alone, after they was angry and was insulting us...) we walked near panorama restaurant about 100 m from CTM station,the people of panorama restaurant was impolite with us and wanted to push us to go with them too...in the end we took a collectif taxi by ourself and we went to Merzouga, there we met a guy Ibrahem studying in university and was in holiday, we enjoyed really to meet him and we stayed in the guest house of his familly.that was a chance for us to meet this guy and forget this bad morning!.

Yup.

Rissani certainly has its fair share of aggressive touts that can be irritating (and persistant!). If you book your desert excursion/ hotel before you arrive to the area, you will have no need for their services, and can thereby avoid or politely refuse the touts' services, and go on about your business.

You live - You learn.
