  1. Dear Ali, Abdou and the Team,

    We’re already back to our big Swiss mountains and we miss you all and your beautiful country.
    We were really impressed by your availability and your commitment to make our trip very successful.

    Even with a group of 7 people (incl. 4 kids ‘4 to 15 years’), everything went well in terms of accommodation, transport, etc. Our guide and Driver Aboud was just perfect. Extremely knowledgeable, he drivers as a champion and is very patient. The team in the Bivac were excellent as well as the Camel guides.

    From Ouarzazate, to Zagora, Mhamid, Erg Chegaga, Lac Iriki, Foum Zguid, Taznaghet, Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou we’ve just had a magic program.

    Sure we recommend your team and program to everyone looking to discover a nice places and nice people.

    Many thanks again and Best Regards from Switzerland.
    Colette, Hassan and Kids 🙂

  2. Chers Ali, Abdou et toute l’Ă©quipe,

    Tout d’abord un grand merci pour votre accueil et votre professionnalisme qui nous ont permis de passer de magnifiques vacances! BRAVO

    Nous Ă©tions un groupe de 7 personnes dont 4 enfants (4 Ă  15 ans), l’Ă©tablissement du programme s’est fait d’une simplicitĂ© rare avec quelques Ă©changes tĂ©lĂ©phoniques avec Ali. Toutes les rĂ©servations ont Ă©tĂ© faites avant notre arrivĂ©e: hĂ´tels, bivac, restaurant, vĂ©hicule 4×4 et un excellent chauffeur et guide en mĂŞme temps (Abdou). Depuis Marrakech, en passant par Ouarzazates, Zagoura, Mhamid, Erg Chegaga, lac Iriki, Foum Zguid, Taznagh et retour Ă  la Kasbah d’AĂŻt Ben Hadou, le parcours fĂ»t splendid. Le professionalisme d’Abdou et son Ă©norme connaissance du terrain nous ont permis de dĂ©couvrir des choses extraordinaires comme la visite de quelques beaux villages berbers qui se trouvent hors des grands axes routiers ! Ou la visite du Souk de Zagoura (mercredi) oĂą l’on peut dĂ©couvrir l’un des plus grand marchĂ© de dattes fraiches (La rĂ©colte est gĂ©nĂ©ralement entre octobre et novembre) et mĂŞme dĂ©guster de sĂ©culantes et juteuses dattes qu’on ne trouvera jamais sur nos Ă©talages en Europe. Les deux nuits passĂ©es au Bivac ont Ă©tĂ© tout simplement magic grâce aux petits soins de Mohamed, SaĂŻd et les autres. Avec une soirĂ©e au tour d’un feu de camp et quelques danses et chants aux rythmes des percussions locales. La balade sur dos de chameaux dirigĂ©e par le sympathique Hassan, vous emporte certainement loin dans le temps pour s’imaginer un mode de vide aussi pure dans un dĂ©sert rude certes, mais magique.

    Encore Merci Ali, Merci Aboud et tout bientĂ´t inchaAllah

  3. We (mother and daughter) booked a trip to Erg Chegaga in November 15. It was one of the best experiences of our lives!
    Before we started, Helene answered all our questions very fast and was helpful with her knowledge.
    The day of the trip, our driver Cheikh picked us up in the riad. He was a very nice and helpful man, and knew a lot about the moroccan culture. He made our journey very special. And most important: he is an excellent driver! Even with hours of offeroad-driving and dangerous roads in the mountains, we never felt unsafe.
    Also the staff in the desert camp were very nice to us. Respectful and helpful young man.
    Thank you very much for this experience. We simply loved it.

  4. Dear Ali,
    thank you very much for this amazing and interesting tour. We enjoyed every moment and we felt always save with you. We couldn’t imagine a better guide.
    We liked everything, the things we saw, the riads and also the delicious food. What we liked most was your biwak in the desert. It is really a special spot on earth.
    If you once come to Europe, we would be glad to have you as our guest in Switzerland (we also have a big cou;-)
    All the best inshallah

  5. Tour 5.1 June 15 – June 19, 2014

    ENGLISH

    First of all, we like to thank Helene; she is the link between Morocco and Europe and responsible for the paperwork. She is doing an excellent job, all our questions have been answered in no time. She could fulfil all our wishes.
    On the 15th of June Ali picked us up at our resort in Marrakesh. The off-road car, a Toyota Prado in excellent shape, clean and comfortable. Ali is a very good driver not only on the road but especially in the desert dunes. We communicated with him in a mix of English and French. He told us he will start a language course German soon.
    The third day we arrived in Ali’s brand-new desert-camp in the middle of the Erg Chigaga Dunes.
    My wife and I, we had our Birthday that day. Ali surprised us with a fresh made Birthday Cake with candles. Imagine: two and a halve hours drive away from the nearest town in the middle of the desert!! Incredible, a very beautiful gesture. Ali’s team spoiled us furthermore with Nomad music till late at night. This birthday party we will never forget. Thanks guy’s. We also like to thank the family from FĂĽrstenfeldbruck for being a part of it.
    Our recommendation for the desert: sleep outside and enjoy the starry sky. So many stars you will never ever see again in Europe!

    Conclusion: this tour is just a must! Perfect organized, we felt save throughout the whole tour. We met original nomads, no fakes produced for tourists but real authentic encounters with interesting locals. If you like to revive South-Morocco in his authenticity, Sahara Feeling is the perfect partner.

    DEUTSCH

    Zuerst möchten wir uns bei Helene bedanken; sie ist die Kontaktperson zwischen Marokko und Europa und für die Verwaltung zuständig. Sie macht einen hervorragenden Job, sie hat vorab alle unsere Fragen in kürzester Zeit beantwortet und konnte uns alle Wünsche erfüllen.
    Am 15. Juni holte Ali uns ab in unserem Resort in Marrakesch. Der 4×4, ein Toyota Prado war in ausgezeichnetem Zustand, sauber und komfortabel. Ali ist ein sehr guter Fahrer nicht nur auf der StraĂźe, sondern vor allem in den WĂĽstendĂĽnen . Wir verständigten uns mit ihm in einer Mischung aus Englisch und Französisch. Er sagte uns, er wird in KĂĽrze mit einem Deutsch Sprachkurs beginnen.
    Am dritten Tag kamen wir in Ali’s brandneuen WĂĽstencamp in der Mitte der Erg Chigaga DĂĽnen.
    An diesem Tag hatten meine Frau und ich Geburtstag. Ali ĂĽberraschte uns mit einer frischen Geburtstagstorte mit Kerzen. Stellen Sie sich vor: zweieinhalb Stunden Autofahrt entfernt von der nächsten Stadt mitten in der WĂĽste! Unglaublich, eine sehr schöne Geste. Ali’s Team verwöhnte uns auĂźerdem mit Nomaden Musik bis spät in die Nacht. Diese Geburtstags-Party werden wir nie vergessen. Vielen Dank an das ganze Team.
    Wir möchten uns auch bei der Familie aus Fürstenfeldbruck für den tollen Abend bedanken.
    Unsere Empfehlung fĂĽr die WĂĽste: drauĂźen schlafen und den Sternenhimmel genieĂźen. So viele Sterne sehen Sie in Europa nie wieder!

    Fazit: Diese Tour ist ein MUST! Perfekt organisiert, fühlten wir uns während der gesamten Tour sicher. Wir trafen echte Nomaden, keine Attraktionen produziert für Touristen sondern authentische Begegnungen mit interessanten Einheimischen.
    Wenn Sie Süd-Marokko in seiner Authentizität erleben möchten, ist Sahara Feeling der perfekte Partner.

  7. “Amazing, family friendly, journey into the Sahara Desert with several insightful detours into the Berber communities both past and present.”

    We chose the 3 day – 2 night tour from Marrakech to the Erg Chebbi desert for our family of four adults and three children. Overall, the our was exceptional and memorable. Both Moustafa, our guide, and Mohamed, our driver were accommodating, knowledgeable and above all very patient. The night spent in the desert, (Moustafa and friends serenaded us to sleep), and the camel ride to and from the tent site were beautiful and enchanting. The return trip from the Sahara Desert, through the Atlas Mountains, back to our Riad in Marrakech required a 12 hour ride in a minibus. So, if you have the flexibility to chose the 3 or 4 night tour, I would recommend it. My only criticism of the tour relates to the selection of meals. Generally, the meals were decidedly uninteresting; chosen for expediency as opposed to quality. Otherwise, this tour met or exceeded all of our expectations.
