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!!!
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
Historically we never go back to
the same place twice, but this is
definitely an experience we would
