Very fun tour!Even though it was hard to find because of deep in the old city, he picked me up at my riad and drove me an hour to the desert. It was just 2 hours tour, but I really enjoyed it! I would like to join his long tour someday. On the way back, since it was after 8pm, he took me to a supermarket and then drove me back to my riad! I highly recommend his tours!!!

We had a fun time! The driver was kind even when we got there a minute or two past our scheduled time. We didn’t have any problems with the ride. The guide for the camels was nice and funny. The Moroccan attire was a nice touch. They even had an outfit for our little one:) We enjoyed the mint tea.

I don’t think the camels were well treated, they had the seat obviously too tight around their bodies and it felt uncomfortable to ride them. We did a ride with another company and it was totally different, it was very relaxing riding on their backs. The people were nice enough, but I would advise against camel riding with this host.
