The 3 day desert tour with Rachid was amazing. Within 3 days I saw a lot and learned about the Berber culture in Morocco and also got to know nice people from all over the world. Above all, our tour guide Rachid made the tour an unforgettable experience with his humorous and courteous manner.
He was always available and took care of the wishes of the travel participants 100%. Schedules and departures were always reliably adhered to. Highlights were the canyon, the camel ride through the Sahara dunes and the musical entertainment in the camp. Thank you very much for 3 unforgettable days!
I recommend it to everyone. Very well organized and above all on time. The two bus ferries (Rachid²) are very nice and helpful. My brother and I took this trip and brought back very good memories.
We visited different corners with different themes, such as Kasbah Ait Hado (where games of thrones is filmed), Toudra with beautiful sights, and riding camels in the desert. We even stayed in the desert and we got the chance to see the sky full of stars. I would like to thank the two Rachid's again for everything they did for us.
