The dunes of the Sahara Erg Chigaga are a much younger and less populated destination. The dunes of Erg Chigaga are located southeast of Marrakech, towards the border with Algeria, more than 60 km from the nearest city, Mhamid. The desert is here bigger and wilder. Those who opt for an excursion to the Erg Chigaga desert should expect a rustic experience without access to nearby hotels. This circuit in the desert requires at least three days of travel through Ait Ben Haddou, the palm groves of the Draa Valley and a rocky and desert landscape before reaching the dunes of the Sahara. The tour through the desert of Erg Chigaga is fascinating, the trip to the Sahara desert offers you the opportunity to ride a camel, climb the dunes of the Sahara, admire the magnificent views and sleep under the tent or the beautiful star The other dunes of the Sahara they are the dunes of Erg Chebbi de Merzouga. The dunes of Erg Chebbi are more popular and reach a height of 150 meters in some places and extend along 50 km. The hotels line the edge of the desert, offering travelers the opportunity to spend the night in the comfort of a traditional hotel room or a luxury camp, and then explore the desert of Merzouga and its surroundings in daytime.

Excellent - It was a pleasure again, now for the third time ,to have Ismail with us for visiting yet another part of Maroc. I can highly recommend him as à very... read more pleasant person, guide and driver to have with you on your holidays.
A trip of a lifetime in Ismail's capable hands - We can't rate touring with Ismail highly enough. He was so knowledgeable, patient and friendly during our 12 days together that saying goodbye to him at the airport was like... read more saying goodbye to a member of our family.
He organized everything to perfection, even checking our rooms when we arrived at each hotel to make sure it was the correct standard.
Although I've recommended him as a guide to lots of people already, I actually feel a little bit jealous that other people are going to spend wonderful times with him!
He's promised to come and visit it us - I really hope he does.
He is THE BEST!!!

He listened very good to our wishes, he is also flexible, we did some activities that were not on the planning, which were amazing. We would 100% recommend him.
My husband and I spent 5 days traveling Morocco with Isma/Ismail. He is a gem and I can't rave about him enough. The airline lost my husbands luggage.... read more Isma made sure to help us navigate getting his luggage back 5 days later. That's just the beginning. Right away I felt like I knew Isma for years. His positive outlook on life may the trip even better. He drove us from Casablanca to Fez to the Dessert to an area near Quazzaete, Markech and back to Casablanca. The car was so comfortable. Spending so much time with a stranger was a concern. However, Isma made it seem like we were traveling with another friend. He provided us with so much history about Morocco and took us to hidden villages that I would have never seen. He planned the perfect itinerary for us. We are Orthodox Jews. Isma helped us find Kosher places to eat and made sure that we felt at home. I would recommend him to all of my friends. I plan to stay in touch. I know he meets so many people, but we feel like we made a friend in Morroco.
Isma is a the best guide, he was always kind and solving any request or question that we had. I highly recomend booking him for your trip! You will feel... read more really comfortable and secure :) Plus he is a really open-minded person and gives you great conversation! We were a large group and we had a really fun time with him.
My wife and I spent two weeks driving with Ismael as our guide throughout Morocco. The trip was originally organized by another guide, however during the time we spent with... read more Ismael we grew close as he helped us navigate the complex social scenery we encountered. Morocco is a must see destination, full of varied culture and ancient history, and we really scored having such an amenable and intelligent guide/driver to care for us along our way. We started our travels in Marrakesh, traveled north to Casablanca and Rabat, then to Chefchaouen, the blue city. In each location we stayed Ismael met us when needed, helped with our bags, gave directions, but what was the most wondrous for me was that he let me find my own way when I desired, within the comfort and security of his watchful eye.
After we left Chefchaouen we saw Volubilis and continued on to Merzouga and the desert dunes. The camel ride was so fun getting to our tent in the desert, with the sun setting behind us the photo op was tremendous, with orange dunes and camel-ride shadows, just amazing After the desert dunes, driven safely by Ismael in a way I am still in awe of, we made our way to Amazigh (Berber) country, where Ismael was born and raised. Suffice it to say that our trip in Morocco was more than could be desired, we visited everything on the plan, and we were able to insert our own desires as each day ensued. We saw so many things off the beaten track, things that exist right next to the normal tourist track. We finished our trip back in Marrakesh and made our flight without a fuss, Ismael safely driving and avoiding any slowdowns we might have encountered.
I highly recommend Ismael. He’s an intelligent, educated man with a sensitivity towards his wayfarers that, in my somewhat extensive experience traveling the globe, is not often seen.
