Mainly an fyi......After giving a deposit for a tour with Sahara Desert Trips, we had to cancel due to health issues and being unable to fly. Working with Youssef, we were able to get our deposit back. No easy thing! When we do go to Morocco, we will be sure to use his tour company.

Just last week, my husband and I traveled from Eindhoven, Netherlands to Fes, Morocco through Ryanair. As agreed through email before, Youssef and Barak delivered exaxctly what they said they would and took us on a 3 day adventure of a lifetime.:) We could not have been happier with our guides Youssef and Barak. They took every opportunity to show us the beauty of their country and listened to both our needs and wants as travelers. We saw incredible scenic views and experienced true culture from Fes, all the way down to Erg Chebbi. Seriously, if you are thinking about taking this trip, just do it. You will not regret it! Trips with this company rock and getting a glimpse at the beauty of the Sahara is unforgettable!Plus, for couples, they also do give you the couple time you are seeking! Seriously- go for it!:)

Locations visited were amazing - variety was the key to this trip and what we saw in 3 days was astonishing. The camel ride and night in the desert was amazing and the hotel was top class. Food excellent.
Drive was long but very interesting to see the countryside, mountains and villages.
Youseff was our guide with a driver - Youseff was rather hard to talk to and very rarely did he break out into a smile - his knowledge is good but not a very talkative guy. Places he took us to were excellent though.
I would recommend the company as all went very smoothly - just try and take to Youseff to get him to open up and speak to you a bit.

Booking

I had done extensive research on numerous tour companies offering a 3-day Marrakech to Fes tour and I ultimately went with Sahara Desert Trips because:
1. All the itineraries from competing tour companies were virtually identical
2. Their price was the most reasonable
3. Although they only had a few reviews on TripAdvisor compared to some of the other tour companies, all the reviews were still very positive by legitimate users.

I e-mailed the company and communicated with Youssef Karaoui to confirm our trip. He always responded promptly and professionally.

Deposit

To confirm our trip, we had to send a 10% deposit through Western Union or MoneyGram. As we've never sent a money transfer before, we were initially hesitant, skeptical and wary. We encountered a few hiccups, but eventually it worked out. Now, after having toured around Morocco, I see that Western Union/Money Gram is extremely prevalent and commonplace in the country.

Tour Experience

The company picked us up at our hostel promptly at the scheduled. The Toyota 4x4 was clean and in great condition. Our guide and driver was Amar, and he was knowledgable and open about his country, a skilled and safe driver, and nice and contentious. He noticed we really liked to take photos and always offered to pull over on the side of the road to allow us to take pictures. We were also able to stop for coffee/washroom breaks at any time, despite the packed itinerary. We did pretty much everything that had been promised in the itinerary, although there were no monkeys in the forest on the way to Fes because it was raining.

The highlight of our experience was visiting the sand dunes Merzouga/Erg Chebbi. Our guide for the 2-hour camel trek was excellent and allowed us to stop many times for photos. The tents we stayed at in the desert were very comfortable and warm, despite the cold winter night.

Meals & Accommodations

The provided breakfast and dinners at the riads (Kasbah Itran and Auberge du Sud) were wonderful and delicious and everyone we interacted with were very nice and polite. The places we stopped at for lunch pretty much catered exclusively to tourists, so they were a bit overpriced, but that was to be expected.

Overall

We had a wonderful time and loved our guide, Amar. While the tour seems expensive, I still felt it provided great value for the money and you cannot get this experience anywhere else. Driving in Morocco is quite tricky, with aggressive drivers and narrow, winding roads and I would not have wanted to attempt driving in Morocco. In addition, we were two girls travelling together, so having Amar around was doubly beneficial - without him, we would have gotten hassled a LOT more during the trip. I would absolutely not hesitate to recommend Amar and Sahara Desert Trips to anyone visiting Morocco. I guarantee you won't regret taking a tour with them!

After a wonderful 5 days trip from Fes to the Merzouga desert, crossing High Atlas to Marrakech in two 4X4 vehicle with Hassan, Barek and Youssef as drivers and gudes we (8 Danes) had an unforgettable exprience.
The crew made our tour exiting, funny and with their local knowledge and skills for driving in the desert and mountains, we visited places far from ordinary roads.
A 2 hours camel ride in the high dunes in sundown for sleeping in a normad tent, in the middle of the dunes, seeing the sunset from the top of a dune before riding back was fantastic!
Crossing High Atlas throgh the Tizi `N'tichka pass (2260 m) visiting a normad family was some of the many expiriences.
Hotels and Riads with dinner and breakfast was exelent.

Thanks to you Hassan, Barek and Youssef for a fantastic experience, for god company, wonderfull music, fun and exiting 4X4 desertdrive.


Best wishes
