There are a million places to book the exactly same trip, and prices vary very much. The first night in the hotel, the room was very nice and comfortable, the dinner and breakfast were really good, but what made the place special was the atmosphere with a late-night Berber jam session with the hosts. I eventually spent the desert night at the luxurious camp. The trip to Fes didn't go according to any itinerary, I was the only one from my group who wasn't returning to Marrakesh. So I waited and eventually i was picked by some taxi with a few people and not enough working seatbelts.
