Best 5-day desert tour ever. We’ve seen the Sahara desert, rode on camels, and seen this beautiful Saharan lifestyle. Our driver and tour guide is super friendly and we highly recommend him.


Been a hell of a ride. I HAD A LOT OF FUN EXPLORING THE SAHARA DESERT. This remains the best 5-day Sahara Desert tour you can ever pick.  As we did the 5-day tour starting from Marrakech.
