We booked a private tour for three people from Fez to the Sahara Desert & Merzouga and back to Marrakech next day. We have a flight on the next day in Marrakech at 8:30 pm so normal tours to the desert is not suitable for us. But we really wanted to visit the desert. Luckily, we found the Happy Moroccan Tour. They arranged a private tour for us quickly and perfectly and let us come back to Marrakech in the time we want. The price is nice. And we had a really enjoyable experience.
Although the tour had a long drive, the view was really beautiful, so it was not so tired throughout the tour. We saw snow mountains, forest and monkeys, valleys, oasis, desert and so on. After arrived at Sahara, we rode on camels, saw the sunset, and stayed in a luxury camp. The camel ride was a unforgettable experience. At night, the starry night in the desert was amazing, and it was definitely life-worthy to see it. The food at the camp was also nice. On the next day, we set off early towards Marrakech for the flight, and we arrived on time successfully.
I’m here also to specifically give a great thank to our driver and guide, Ali. He is a really nice, kind and hard-working person. On the first day, he got up early to pick us from the hotel in Fez and then drove us to the Sahara Desert. This was definitely not a easy task. The whole drive was about 7 hours. Ali finished the drive perfectly and did not show any tiredness during the drive. He also showed professionality as a guide. He can speak some English. He introduced the places, buildings, and the views to us from time to time and answered our questions. He knew the tour well and he always told us the next stop clearly after we finished the previous one. He also responded to our requests (ie. go to toilet, have a cup of tea, buy some sovereigns and so on) quickly and can find the right places. The drive was long, but the arrangement for getting off the car to see the view or relax was nice, so we did not feel so tried throughout the tour. We have a really happy and enjoyable time with Ali. It is nice to have a person like him in the tour.
In all, we really like and recommend the Happy Moroccan Tour and our driver and guide o Ali.
