I recommend it!
Oct 2021
The 3 day tour is a really unique experience. The communication with Omar via WhatsApp was easy going and I always received quick replies and clear instructions. Mohamed was our driver for the 3 days and did a fantastic job to make us feel comfortable! The communication in english (or french or spanish) was never a problem.
In the desert we saw the milky way very clearly and Said from the desert camp was able to make really good photos with our phones. All the people were incredibly friendly - as a German you can almost get a bit suspicious because you're not used to this :D
All in all an experience I would recommend.

An awesome tour!
Oct 2021 • Friends
My friends and I booked this tour not knowing what to expect. Youssef was our driver was beyond fantastic; he was more like a tour guide. He explained everything to us in great deal. He gave us the history of each and every site. He was very patient while answering all of our questions; and we had many.

He was superb and really should be a tour guide not just a driver! He is a true asset to this company.

Our driver Youssef was helpful, informative and generally a great guy. He made sure to explain everything and was flexible to all our different needs. We got plenty of time for breaks and picture taking. I would recommend him to our friends. He made us feel safe and would make a great tour guide as well. He was great at making sure we knew the daily activities and the guide transition was good. Had a great time!

Trip of a lifetime
Sep 2021 • Solo
I really can’t even express how enjoyable this trip was. I have never experiences anything like this in my life! I was a solo female traveler and was a little hesitant about this trip. For no reason because Said made me so comfortable he even picked me up right from the hotel and the drop-off was no different. He was the best tour guide as he made the trip so entertaining and gave us so much information along the way! The car ride was long but we honestly enjoyed it because we made so many stops and had such a great time. 10000% recommend this experience especially with Said. We spent one night at the desert and had the most amazing time! From the food, to the music, to the dancing, and sleeping under the stars… felt like I walked into a movie scene. It was all perfect and worth every single dollar. I will hold this memory close to my heart forever.

Pro tip: bring some cash to tip along the way and make purchases if needed. Pack light. Dress modestly and enjoy!!

Fantastic trip with Ando
Sep 2021 • Couples
We booked the trip and again we had information of the driver and vehicle. We was picked up by driver Youssef who accompanied us with our bags and gave us specific details of the trip.

As it’s a 3 day trip we were informed very effectively by our driver of each days plans and what and where we are. Toilet and rest breaks are often to stretch your legs and have a coffee.

The whole journey was fantastic from the food provided which was included in the trip and mostly our driver Youssef who made sure we are all okay for the whole 3 days and for providing information of every step along with way.

Thank you Ando Travel!!! Can’t wait for the next ones along.

Merzouga trip, a Must.
Sep 2021 • Solo
Very cheap, fabolous trip, a little long, but they do a lot of breaks and tours, you'll never get bored, honestly i liked the castle of ibn haddou, and the local people as well, so 4.0 stars for the castle. You then sleep the first Night in a hotel in Tinghir and for the price no complain at all, good service.
Afterwards you go visit a local area near Tinghir, it was interesting as well, but the most interesting part ist when you arrive at Merzouga, i liked everything, riding the camels, catching the sunset, dancing around the fire, sleeping in the tent, weaking up early to catch the sunrise, i loved it. I have to thank The driver, he was friendly and very kind, i hope that he enjoyed the trip as well, thanks Youssef! And thanks Haddou they both are fabolous people! 5 stars

Absolutely wonderful trip to Merzouga
Sep 2021 • Solo
I cannot recommend this tour enough. One of the most incredible experiences and Ando Travel is absolutely the company you should go with. Honestly, everyone on our tour spent half the time trying to figure out HOW this tour was so inexpensive, the hotel we stayed at on the first night was at least with the total amount that this entire tour costs! Not to mention the amazing dinners and breakfasts and the beautiful night in the desert. Such a perfect tour, incredible value, and unforgettable memories.

Our tour guide Said made this trip perfect . He is someone that I wish everyone got a chance to meet. We all found ourselves wishing that the drives to and from the different destinations were longer, just so we could keep talking and learning from Said. He so so informative and knowledgeable, not just about the tour and Morocco but about the world and life in general and it was such a privilege to learn from his perspective. There are phrases he would mention about life and happiness that I still keep in mind when making life decisions.

Overall one of, if not the best tours I’ve ever taken!

Exceptional experience!
Sep 2021 • Friends
Had an amazing time! Our guide Abdul was so helpful and informative, he truly made our experience exceptional. All of the other local guides were also friendly and helpful! The accommodation along the way was great, we even had access to a swimming pool both afternoons - which was amazing given the heat of the Sahara! They were also really accommodating to dietary restrictions. My sister has a nut allergy and I’m vegetarian, we never had to worry about food and everything we were served was delicious! Would highly recommend this trip with Ando Travel. Thanks again to Abdul for the great trip!!

Abdul’s the best
Sep 2021 • Couples
I had a great time exploring Morocco with only three others on my shared tour. Our driver, Abdul, really made the experience - he was a great driver and very knowledgable and it was lovely getting to know him over the three days. He made sure we always had enough water, ate at cheap but tasty restaurants and had the best local guides along the way. Accommodation was great throughout and since it was so warm, we spent our night in the desert on a rug on a sand dune under the stars instead of in the camp itself. Everyone, especially Abdul, spoke amazing English and always made sure we had everything we needed. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a desert tour and incredible value.
