Our Sahara tour was EXCELLENT! We had a great time and loved being able to see an enormous portion of the country in such a short amount of time (thanks for the recommended stops). Our driver, Khalid, was cool…he did a good job of making sure we got to see all the hotspots along the way and gave us time to take tons of pictures. He didn’t rush us, but patiently made recommendations to get us to the best places to maximize our time- which is something we really valued. Tinghir was stunning- we loved the massive red walls of the gorge and seeing the lifestyle of the local amazigh people. We stopped near the edge of the desert and took pictures of an enormous herd of camels (maybe a couple hundred) The desert was awesome- we had a good trek out and climbed up a dune near the camp to enjoy the sunset. At night, we circulated around the neighboring camps to enjoy some drum action and dancing. There was a super-moon that night so the dunes were really well lit. We slept outside and enjoyed the quiet isolation of the Sahara. In the morning, we woke up early and climbed (at least partially) a dune to watch the sunrise. Thanks for a stellar trip. Everyone in our party was very pleased by the experience.
