What a wonderful trip!
Felicity, from Desert Majesty, organized a perfect 4 day round trip from Marrakech to the Sahara for me and my girlfriend on the occasion of my 50th birthday beginning of October 2013.
We were picked up directly at the airport by our guide plus an extra driver, both of them called Mohamed. Within short time we found out that our guide not only shared all his knowledge on historical sites with us even more our sense of humor. Our first night we stayed in Ben Aid Haddou. A great place to start with. Our Riad was located directly in Ben Aid Haddou, called Kashbah Tebi. It is very original and has not electricity. The rooms are very historical and a perfect candel light dinner was served in a wonderful atmosphere. The best start for our Morocco tour we can think off in a perfect location. We loved the place and can only recommend it if you like to experience real Morocco instead of a 4/5 star hotel. The room was clean and the view from the terrace stunning.
Since sand storms had hit the part of Mhamid, we originally planned to visit, we changed plans the 2nd day and went to Erg Chebbi ,a different part of the Sahara. We passed the valley of Kashbas, valley of Roses. In the evening we arrived at our bivouac were we stayed 2 nights just next to the dunes, which was great. We enjoyed the great site in the dunes, we walked through the dunes and saw the sunset and sunrise in the desert. It was like magic for our eyes. In the evening we sang, danced and even played drums with the employees having a lot of fun trying to pick up a few word of Arabic words. The pronunciation is so difficult and made us all laugh a lot.
On our way back we passed the Draa valley and again our guide was full of stories and a good sense of humor. The 4 days just passed so quickly and we were very sad saying good-bye to Mohammed when he dropped us off at our Riad in Marrakech where we stayed another 3 days.
Everything had been perfectly organized, the diver was very good and Mohammed our guide was just the best. I can only recommend Desert Majesty as the best choice for a trip through Morocco. Individual wishes were no problem, neither re-arranging the tour or spontaneous stops to take a picture. Both driver and guide are well trained and absolutely people to trust and rely on. We always felt safe and very special. Our guide was always very friendly and curious to make us feel special. He must have made that trip with many visitors before always asking the same questions though still he was explaining things to us with a sort of excitement to make it interesting for us.
All together I can only say “THANK YOU SO MUCH” for this wonderful trip.
Felicity, thank you for answering so quickly.
Mohamed, our driver, thank you for driving so carefully and being so patient for waiting for us.
And a big THANK YOU to our guide Mohamed, who mad this trip unique and unforgettable.
Yours Martina and Marion
