My partner and I took the 4 day trip starting in Marrakech, going to Ait Ben Haddou, Todra Gorge, the Sahara desert and back to Marrakech. We had an amazing time! The tour guide never rushed us anywhere. At the same time, if we wanted to skip something, he did not oppose either. The riads we stayed during the first and second night were clean, hospitable and provided the basics. The third night was quite the adventure. We were hit by a sandstorm so unfortunately we couldn't sleep, however, the tents were comfortable.
The only negative encounter we had was on the fourth day. The tour guide asked my boyfriend if he had any money because he didn't. We thought it was for a tip. He said yes and asked the tour guide how much. He was asking for 1,000 dirham! We said we only had 600 and he took 600. That left us with 120 dirham left get by until we reached Marrakech. Since it was Ramadan, almost every single exchange place was closed, along with cheap restaurants. We went to a restaurant and had to split a meal between both of us, which was not the ideal way of ending such a marvelous trip. Thankfully the 600 dirham was discounted from the total price.
Apart from that hiccup, we absolutely loved the trip.
