    The entire experience was truly extraordinary, from the moment we were picked up until we were dropped off. The journey to the desert was nothing short of beautiful, with delightful stops along the way that added to the overall charm. The desert itself, along with the camels and the camp, exceeded our expectations and left us in awe.

    However, what truly made this experience exceptional was our driver and guide, Abdul. Not only was he fluent in English and French, but he surprised us with his knowledge of Dutch, German, Portuguese, and Spanish. He took great care of us, treating us with respect and ensuring we had a fantastic time. Abdul patiently answered all our questions about the region, sharing fascinating insights and stories.

    When I asked him where he was from, Abdul simply said, “I opened my eyes in the desert.” His connection to the land was evident in the way he showcased the beauty of his people and country. His enthusiasm and passion made the journey even more remarkable.

    Leaving this incredible experience behind, we find ourselves eagerly anticipating a swift return for a 12-day tour throughout Morocco. Inshallah, we will have the opportunity to explore more of this captivating country and create new memories with Abdul as our guide.
