We had a 2 days Sahara desert tour from Fes and back with Morocco tours agency. We enjoy our ride on the camels in Merzouga and also the camping. if anyone taking the tour to the sahara, I reccommend you book more days than 2. Because it was short, we mostly were in the car the whole trip. The service is highly recommended though.
We were not dispointed when we book this tour. We saw more tha we expected, we enjoyed the camel ride in Erg Chebbi and camping there. Thank you Idir for the tour you give us and we hope to come someo other time.
