Best Experience! Our guide Lahcen was super nice and friendly. Camel ride, sand boarding and started nights
Amazing tour! Camping in the desert and watching the sunset/sunrise is the most incredible experience – I would recommend to anyone. The camp is very luxurious (big double beds, showers and even a restaurant). The whole trip is really good value for money and the tour guides are very fun and full of energy.
