My boyfriend and I had an unforgettable experience on our 3 day tour. Lahcen was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. He really made our trip special.
He picked us up from our hotel in Marrakech and drove us to our first destination through the Atlas Mountains. Lahcen is a very skilled driver and made us feel safe the entire trip. Along with entertaining us with his conversation and great berber music.
Our first stop was Ait Ben Haddou, which is a beautiful old city and a UNESCO World heritage site where Laurence of Arabia, Gladiator and many other movies have been filmed. At the end of the day we were driven to a hotel in Dades Gorge to spent the night.
Early the next morning Lahcen took us to our main destination, the desert city of Merzouga. Here we met with a group of locals who took us on camels to watch the sunset from the Erg Chebbi dunes. The view was spectacular.
We continued on our camels until we reached our campsite in the desert. Here we had dinner along with the other guests. After dinner we got the chance to hear some traditional music while drinking mint tea and gazing at the breathtaking desert sky. This was one of the highlights of the trip.
The next morning we woke up early enough to watch the sun rising through the dunes. This was equally as beautiful as the sunset we saw the evening before. After breakfast, we made the journey back to Merzouga on our camels. Lahcen was waiting for us when we arrived and drove us back to Marrakech.
Overall, it was a once in a lifetime experience that I will never forget. Lahcen remains our friend and we hope that many others will have the opportunity to experience Morocco and all that it has to offer with Lahcen and Sahara Explore!
