We had high expectations, but this tour exceeded them. We reserved a shared student trip, but “Said,” our private driver, provided us with a really cozy Toyota 4×4. Hassan took us around and made us feel extremely comfortable and safe. He was also always honest. We had to travel to the best locations, ride camels, and enjoy the sunset because the desert was so breathtaking. My friend had the finest day ever, and we will always remember it! The journey, the people, the cuisine, and the accommodations were all amazing. We heartily urge everyone to take this 3-day tour via the Merzouga desert to go from Fez to Marrakech!
