One thought on “3 days Merzouga Desert Tour from Marrakech

  1. Absolutely appalled with the service provided by DD Tours. I had booked the three day trip 2 weeks in advance. I got in contact with the company regarding where to be picked up. I was told to meet out the front of Cafe De Frances at 7.20am to get picked up for the tour. I arrived at 7.00am and was the first person out the front of the cafe. Over the next 2 hours, approximately 50-80 people came and left with there associated tour guides. During this time, I was actively seeking the tour guides to see if I was on there tour, in which I wasn’t. Seeing I was the only single male travelling on the day, I definitely stood out however was not approached once by anyone from DD Tours. I tried to contact the tour guide/company and had no responses and even got one of the other tour guides to ring the company. They finally got in contact, however DD Tours said they would call back to organise a follow up plan, which never happened. At 9.00am, I gave up and decided to find new accommodation for the night.

    Finally, after sending multiple emails regarding the issue, I was contacted by the company at midnight saying they would look into it. Again, I had no response for 2 days and therefore emailed back asking for a refund. In return, I was told I was a liar and that I was a no show in the morning. This makes no sense as I had already paid the 110 pounds for the trip. To add salt to the wound, I booked a three day tour at my hostel, leaving the next day, which was half the price of this tour (66 pounds).

    Overall, really disappointed with the service. To not show up, not try and contact me, not respond to my efforts of trying to contact them and then not offer any solution/refund and being told I was a liar, I am extremely upset and recommend not to book with the company. If wanting to book a tour, I recommend doing it in person once in Marrakech.
