We can provide service in English, Portuguese. Spanish, Italian. French, Arabic and, of course, Berber.
Our tours are private. Your guide travels with just you, or with your family or friends if you book as a group. We do not add others to your trip. If you are spending a night at the camp in the dunes, it’s possible that others will also be staying there. You will, however, have a private tent.
Your tour includes hotels or, if in the dunes, camp accommodations. It also includes transport by 4×4 (or camel where applicable), as well as breakfasts and dinners. You are responsible for covering the cost of your lunches and drinks.
Prices depend on accommodations. We can arrange for luxury accommodations at 4-star hotels or for something simpler if you’re on a budget. Call or email us with your preferences and we’ll give you a price. If you wish to arrange a trip around Christmas or New Years, please contact us early because some hotels may fill up and we’ll have less flexibility.
Tipping is completely optional. If you feel your guide has provided you with excellent service, tips are appreciated, but never expected.
