JulieWritten on March 2nd, 2020I loved it! Of course, the driver stopped at the most expensive places for lunch but that's to be expected. This was such a great trip!!!
LauraWritten on July 14th, 2019This was not a tour, more of a transportation service. We arrived in the desert at night and left before sunrise, food was terrible. Outhouses were overflowin…Read moreRouge Travel commented on this reviewHi there, thanks for your review written some 9 months after your trip. Our itinerary is extremely clear and provides information as to what is and isn't included and is absolutely commensurate with the tour you received. If you mean that you didn't have a personal guide throughout the trip which negated your definition of 'tour', then really, you did book the wrong tour - our private trips indeed include a guide, but our group trips have guides along the way (some included, some not). You will not have left prior to sunrise as you would have had a camel ride at that time, so this is simply untrue - though as the review is written so long after the event, I can understand why you may have been confused about time-frames. It is always frustrating for us as an operator, I'm sure you can appreciate, when a review like this is written which doesn't really describe anything apart from the toilets. You stayed with us in Marrakech for 2 nights - you were collected punctually for the trip and stopped along the way. I do agree with the last comment though - indeed, it is vital that guests do their research to ensure their expectations are met. Read itineraries, ask questions before booking - that is what we are here for. Consider the difference between a budget camping trip and more luxury glamping trip. Appreciate that this will incur a price difference. If you don't do any of this, then really the responsibility lies with you.

BrendaWritten on March 18th, 2019The drive through the Atlas Mountain was beautiful; the winding roads were too much after a while. The Todra Gorges were nice, but more of a quick "stop and loo…Read more
ScottWritten on February 21st, 2019As tours go, this one was quite inexpensive for the itinerary, so I wasn't expecting too much. That's the best way to go into something like this because then y…Read more

AnonymousWritten on November 19th, 2018I booked this tour since it was reasonably priced so I wasn't expecting much anyway in terms of comfort or organisation - it wasn't that bad though except for a…Read moreRouge Travel commented on this reviewHi there, thanks for your comments. We charge the absolute standard rate for the airport pick up which is 15 euros - the driver waits for you outside arrivals, monitoring your flight so that should there be any delays, he will not leave you in the lurch. You are then met by a member of hostel staff who will accompany you to your accommodation. It's pretty convenient considering arriving in Marrakech for the first time can be difficult to navigate. The taxi transfer is not forced upon you - it is entirely an option and your choice - totally transparent. Buses are excellent - the No. 19 takes you all the way to Place D'Jeema el Fna for 40MAD and taxis that you can negotiate the price with at arrivals can either end up a little cheaper or significantly more expensive. The transfer we offer is a safe option should you not wish to encounter hassle upon arrival. Indeed, as per the clear information provided in the itinerary and through communication via tourradar, lunch is not included in the price so once again, it is certainly an option to bring your own lunch. Bottled water is also specified as not included. When taking a trip such as one to the second largest desert in the world (Antarctica interestingly being the largest), we have perhaps incorrectly assumed that guests would realise that fast wifi and being online is not going to be possible in such an isolated region because that is not what the trip is about surely. However, yes, you are right - there are no charging facilities in tents in the Sahara Desert. There is however, pure peace, eternal skies and constellations and life-changing sunrises. 'It wasn't that bad' is a fairly nebulous phrase which doesn't really provide much insight into your overall experience, however we hope that overall you enjoyed the experience!
