Comfortable, informative and most enjoyable tour ever

“It was great to take the tour with Sahara Planet in Morocco. We were with them for five days and visited Ergg Chebbi. The serene experience in the sand dunes of Sahara in complete isolation was a bliss. The Milky Way is visible at night. The High Atlas mountains and the caves, Ouarzazate and the visit to old Kasbahs was quite an experience which was further enhanced by all the socio-political and economic details that Mohammed, who accompanied us for the tour on behalf of Sahara Planet made the trip worthwhile. Sahara Planet is affordable, efficient and excellent. I highly recommend them.”

Neha D,

“My trip around Morocco with Sahara Planet was an absolute pleasure. 3 nights and 4 days in amazing accommodation, having fantastic food and the desert experience couldn’t have been better. Mohamed was the perfect guide and driver and I am sure I’ll be back with some friends in the near future to explore more of Morocco. Strongly recommended!”
