Client Testimonials in Tripadvisor





This tour was perfect and unbelievable. Every detail was perfect. I felt Sahara in my soul and everyone is very helpful. Camels quad evening music sunset sunrise was amazing. I absolutely recommend this tour company and this Sahara tour. I hope to see you again.





We had an amazing 5 Days off-road Desert tour with our best Moroccan friend (Mohammed) from the Morocco Travel Tour Agency. Mohammed was our guide and driver, so fun and knowledgeable about the Desert area. With him, we didn’t have to worry about anything during our stay in Morocco. We loved the accommodation we stayed in, especially the Desert camp. Thank you so much 🙂 We will be back soon.  





Mohammed is the best guide for this type of in-depth desert excursion. Our guide was born in the Desert and has lived there for many years, so he knows every nook and cranny. The Atlas Mountains, the Kasbah, Camel ride, sunset, Dakar route, Zagora, everything this trip includes is unforgettable. We enjoyed everything, and I recommend the Morocco Travel Tour to anyone interested in exploring the Desert.
