AMAZING!!! This trip was 100% amazing. A dream to come true. We came from New York City and spent a few nights in tents the desert, went on ATV’s, camel rides and partied & danced at fire pit with authentic Moroccan band. The food is excellent. The tour company & its employees are wonderful. They are professional, trustworthy, reliable and ensure you are comfortable & have a blast. We are going back this month to do it again!! It’s magical.

3 days from Marrakech to Merzouga We had an awesome experience traveling through the High Atlas Mountains and to the Desert. Our driver Omar was the best guide we ever had!! He was punctual, reliable, trustworthy and made our trip to the desert so much fun. He stopped at many different locations along the way for us to take pictures which were beautiful. We made frequent stops for breaks and for food. The spot we stopped at to eat was delicious. Ait Benhaddou was amazing. We had plenty of time to walk up and back down before heading to our hotel. The desert was magical, a place you definitely need to see. We took a camel ride to the dunes to watch the sunset, which was out of this world. The camel ride to the Sahara dunes and the night at the camp is something you definitely want to experience for yourself!!!

Awesome We took our young family - 3 year old and 11 month old on a 3 night trip out to Merzouga. Omar was our driver, he was superb. He made sure we were comfortable, safe and happy throughout. He answered all our questions on the history and culture of the region as well as our three year olds many other questions! Gave us confidence in travelling with two children. The desert camp was particularly amazing but the whole trip was perfect. Thanks again Omar and team.

Gorgeous Camel trek into the Sahara One of the most beautiful experiences I’ve had. I’ve sailed the world as a sailor for many years and this experience was unique unto itself. The trek hosts were incredible and authentically kind. Gorgeous opportunity for photography! Sleeping in the desert was amazing, our tent was luxurious and felt as if I was a million miles from everywhere else. Absolutely planning on returning. Great people, the camels were gentle and exquisitely taken care of. Can’t recommend this enough for a solo trip or romantic getaway!!!!

The best Merzouga Desert Tour Morocco Dream Tours made our time in Morocco unforgettable. Abdul, our tour guide, was amazing! Excellent driver and very knowledgable. Also the best sense of humour which made the long drives enjoyable. A highlight was riding camels through the sand dunes to the Merzouga Camp, where we met Hassan. He was super welcoming and had everything ready for us when we arrived. My twin sister and I turned 25 while there and he even had birthday cakes for us. I would 100% recommend this tour to anyone wanting an authentic, safe, and fun tour to the desert. We can’t wait to come back!

Outstanding!!! Our trip to Morocco was absolutely wonderful thanks so Hassan! He found us a driver (Abdul) who picked us up late at night at the airport, took us to our hotel and made sure that we got in safely. We never had to worry about where we should go in the cities we visited because Abdul arranged every day for tour guides, who were very knowledgeable about the cities, to lead us to the best places to eat, shop and sightsee! They were all great!!! Poor Abdul had to endure us asking him hundreds of questions, but he was always polite and happily answered our questions. He did all the driving for our trip and kept us safe. Abdule is a wonderful young man, and I am so happy that he was part of our experience!!!
Going into the Sahara Desert was a truly amazing experience! Riding camels into the desert and seeing the sand dunes is something that I will never forget! When we reached camp, Hassan was there to great us and poured us a cup of tea and brought us some snacks. We had a lot of great conversation with him but were unable to set him up with one of our daughters 😉 The camp was clean with a comfortable bed and a full bathroom!!! Very luxurious!!! The next morning, we had breakfast and then we rode ATVs in the dessert which was an indescribably fun experience. We never had to worry about our luggage, it was waiting for us in our tents when we got to the camp, and it was waiting for us at the van when we rode the ATVs out of the desert. Hassan and his team made this vacation 100% stress free and fun!
The only thing that I wish we would have done differently is I would have spent an extra night or two in the desert instead of just one.
Thanks for the great memories!!!

Best Experience of Morocco!!! Amazing Morocco experience thanks to Hassan and Morocco
Dreams Tours!!! We couldn't
expect anything better. We came
across one of the posts of the
camp while looking for things to do
in Morocco. We contacted Hassan
with some questions and here he
offered to plan our whole trip from
picking us up from the airport to
dropping us off. Best decision we
could have made. Our driver Abdul
was amazing. Kept us safe, very
knowledgeable, helped arranged
the best tour guides, and very
responsive to our needs. Big thank
you to Abdul!!!
Our time in the Sahara Desert was
the best experience, we will never
forget thanks to Hassan! After our
camel ride to the camp he
personally greeted us with mint
tea and snacks. During our dinner
he sat with us at the table. We
loved that personal touch. He
made us feel at home. We wished
that we had another night at the
camp so that we could have more
intimate experience.
Historically we never go back to
the same place twice, but this is
definitely an experience we would
do again!!!

3 days desert tour My experience with dream tours was beyond my expectations. I did a City tour of Marrakech and 3 day private desert tour everything was amazing. Hassan was very accommodating, quick with responses and worked with what I was looking for making my trip to Morocco unforgettable. The camping site in the desert was beautiful! very clean and comfortable, the food was delicious, our driver Ali was great, very informational, he allowed us to take our time at every site and was punctual with the pick up times. I will definitely use them again on my next visit, will highly recommend if you’re looking for a good time in Morocco.

The perfect dream tour in the desert and real Morocco The tour was definitely amazing, either Hassan and Ahmed (who drove us everywhere) were really kind and well prepared. We’ve visited so many things and learnt so much about the country and the culture. Best experience has been the camel ride and sand boarding in the desert: this is one of the best experiences to do in life. The camp is also really beautiful and food excellent. Another perfect moment has been playing instruments and singing around the fire in the desert camp at night, this really is part of Berber culture and allows you to live a better and authentic experience.
