We traveled to Morocco for the first time in May and, thanks to Ismail and his wonderful staff, had the experience of a lifetime! We first arrived in Marrakech and, after spending a day on our own, were less than impressed with the city's aggressiveness. So, we began our journey into Morocco feeling a little disappointed with our choice to visit. However, Camel Excursions turned our entire trip around! We were whisked through the incredible Moroccan countryside in our own 4x4 and stopped along the way at beautiful overlooks, a Moroccan oil "factory," a fossil mine, an incredible gorge, Aït Benhaddou, a fortified city (also where parts of Game of Thrones is filmed!), and other beautiful locations!
None of this compared, however, to the night camping in the Sahara desert, which we accessed on camel back! We enjoyed a delicious Moroccan meal, joined a drum circle with talented musicians, slept in traditional Berber tents, and watched the sun rise from the top of a dune. I will truly never forget the experiences I had in Morocco and we owe it all to Camel Excursions!
Further, Ismail and his team are some of the most friendly and kind people I have met during my travels. From the beginning, Ismail was prompt at responding to my emails and when we had complications due to delayed travel, Ismail did not hesitate to rearrange our trip so that we could still make everything happen! Additionally, I lost my iPod in the sand one night during the trip and, while I was accepting the fact that it was gone forever, Ismail and four other employees set to work in the dark to find it and - what do you know - they did! I can't say enough good about Camel Excursions and I definitely recommend them to anyone looking for an authentic Moroccan experience! It is well worth the money spent!
