We had such a good time, Said was a great host. We spent one night in his guesthouse and were allowed to sleep on the roof and the other night, he organised a trip to the Camp in the dunes by camels which was an awesome experience. It was clean everywhere and he also brought us some medicin with breakfast as I was a bit sick. Very caring and breakfast was excellent, too. He's the perfect host!
We spent a superb time at the camp. Sunset in the desert is a really unique experience, as well as watching the Milky Way at night. The trip was well organized, the food was really good and the staff was very professional. Said was a great and hospitable host, I totally recommend spending some time with him.
We were amazed with the tour. We had three kids. 7, 8 as well as our 9 month old. Everyone loved it. The food was amazing and the hosts were very friendly. The tent accommodation in the dunes was better than some of the hotels we stayed at in Morocco. The sunrise will not soon be forgotten.
We stayed one night with Said in Village Khamlia and another night in the the tentes berber in the desert he organized for us. We arrived to the village around 19h, after a very long drive from Fès. Said warmly received us and let us park the car in his garage. He then showed us to the room and gave us a little bit of privacy to settle down and accommodate ourselves. About 20-30 minutes later he picked us up and took us to his berber family house, where her sister had prepared a delicious couscous and tuna pizza, which we all shared along with the "berber whiskey". The next day we had a very nice and complete breakfast, including toasts, omelette, honey and marmalade, pastries, orange juice, tea and coffee. We then went for a walk around the village and hiked a little bit into the desert and the gardens in front of it.
The place is amazing, furnished with local stuff and managed by a wonderful guy, Said who made our stay a wonderful experience! First he picked us up at the bus stop at 6 am in a the morning (we were arriving from Fez). He made us restore in the room after the long travel, than he organized a cammel tour in the Sahara desert: one of the best experience in Morocco so far! We slept in a tend between the desert dunes, where local guys prepared us a wonderful dinner! After the dinner, we spent some time out with the fire on, with the local guys playing and singing for us. AMAZING!!
Our trip with Said to the dunes, was really an honest and a 'different' experience. It was more than just the well crafted camp, well maintained animals and knowledgeable guides - we got a glimpse behind the history and life of nomads. A highly recommended trip!
Said arranged a great desert trip for my friends at me! We didn't have to worry about anything and could just enjoy every single moment in this beautiful place. Transportation, food and entertainment was above all our expectations. We will definitely return and stay longer next time we have more time!
I had the pleasure of meeting Said in Khamlia Village. He is truly a wonderful person. Extremely kind and generous. He hosted me for two nights. I loved his apartment so much, I asked if I could stay longer and begin renting a room in the apartment. He agreed and rented this room to me for a really good price. I am so grateful to Said. My stay in Khamlia was the highlight of my time in Morocco. Thank you, Said! Hope to see you again soon!
We first met Said and made a trip to dunes with him already 6 years ago. Said was a great person to meet so I am really happy to recommend the trip to anyone else once it can be found on TripAdvisor 🙂 Camel trek and night in the desert was a great experience, but the thing I almost remember first, when hearing the word 'Sahara', was Said hospitality. One word: Recommend!
