Private vs Shared options

Certainty :

With a private tour, you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes with certainty – your tour is confirmed, and the departure is guaranteed right from the start. Unlike shared tours, which require a minimum number of participants (usually half the seats) before being confirmed, so if you create a new shared tour, it will require other people to join you and meet the minum required before your tour is confirmed. private tours give you the assurance of a confirmed adventure tailored just for you.
If you join an already confirmed group tour, then you have the same certainty of departure as a private tour.

Flexibility :

Flexibility is another key advantage of private tours. When you choose a private tour, you get to customize your experience. Spend more time at your favorite attractions, explore hidden gems, and shape the itinerary to match your unique interests. In contrast, shared tours follow a more structured format, needing alignment with the entire group, which can limit the freedom to explore at your own pace in some occasions.

Accommodations :

While you can choose your accommodation category on a Private tour (Silver, Gold, Diamonad) whenever available, the category is fixed for group tours and will always be Silver options, this is to make sure the tour organization is more efficient and the group won't be staying in separate and distant places which create confusion and wastes precious tour time, It also makes handling emergency cases easier.

8pax vs 16pax Groups :

We have 2 kinds of group tours, small (8 people) and large (16 people), the latter is more economical however requires 8 people to join to be confirmed, while the first only requires 4 to depart.

You can inquire about any of the options to get more in-depth details specific to your needs

Important notice (Valid for private option only):

The tour can be reversed, shortened, extended or altered in any way to suite your specific needs and schedule ! Don't hesitate to contact us and ask for other combinations

Frequently Asked Questions

With the rise in interest in vegan and vegetarian food, all our partners are now accommodating this need and offer completely vegan and vegetarian meals. However, this needs to be communicated in advance, either when booking or when meeting your driver for early preparation purposes.

A frequent and definitely good question, if you are not well-prepared, you might not enjoy your time fully in the desert due to the extreme weather conditions. Deserts get super hot in summer, in Morocco, August is the hottest month of the year, with temperatures reaching 50 °C—122ºF, you can literally cook eggs on the asphalt (great for a TikTok clip). With this said, if you can't take that much heat, please avoid visiting the deserts during July and August. If you are okay with this kind of temperatures; it is still highly recommended to come prepared with good sunscreen, sunglasses, a wide hat, light but covering pieces of clothing and some insect repellent, you can also purchase all these items in Morocco. And let's not forget winter days, starry nights are freezing. The mountainous parts of the roads are usually snowy, but all our vehicles are equipped with A/C for that matter, so make sure to bring warm clothes if you take this tour during December-January.

Arriving at the edge of the dunes, there is a meeting point where camels from different camps in the area are waiting for us, we will get out of the car, put on a scarf if you have one (the cameleer or your driver can help you properly install it) and then you will be introduced to your camel. Once your caravane is ready and onboard, you can take pictures or stories to memorize the moment, then take off and travel on the golden sands to see the sunset on high dune before continuing to the camp. Next morning, you can take the camels again on your way back to the meeting point or take a 4x4 . If a member doesn't want or cannot take the camel ride, the camp is accessible by 4x4 vehicle and it will get you there.

This once was a hustle indeed but no more, all camps nowadays have dedicated 4x4 vehicles that can transport your luggage from your tour car to the camp directly, so you don't have to carry anything during the camel ride. However, we highly recommend you only pack the things you will need for the desert night and transport it to the camp, while leaving the rest of the luggage with your driver.

Yes, you will have your own private hotel rooms and camp tents in all our tours, you can choose between different combinations of twin/triple/quadruple (separate beds) or double (single large bed) rooms and tents depending on your number and preferences but you will never share them with other travelers. All rooms/tents are equipped with private bathrooms and showers with hot water.
