Fes To Marrakech 3-Days Morocco Sahara Desert Tour

We visited intriguing areas and met interesting people who explained us about Moroccan culture during our three-day journey to the Sahara.
This trip was one of the most wonderful experiences I’ve ever had.
Lhoucine is an excellent tour guide, and we felt protected in his car for the entire three days we were with him. He made stops in the mountains, villages, and the desert for us to explore. Lhoucine was incredibly lovely and made us all feel welcome and at ease.
The Sahara journey was incredible, and the camp experience is one I will never forget.
If you want to have an authentic Moroccan experience in the desert, I highly recommend Desert Merzouga Tours!


Great tour from Fes to Marrakech passing by Sahara

This trip was excellent! We went to fantastic places with wonderful people and tour leaders. They’re all extremely friendly and welcoming.

Excellent trip! It was a lot of fun and well-organized. The areas we visited (the high Atlas Mountains, Ksar Ait-Ben-Haddou, and the Todgha Gorges) were breathtaking and fascinating.

The Sahara experience was incredible, complete with a camel ride, sunset, and starry night sky.

I would suggest this company to anyone visiting Morocco because it is dependable, reasonably priced, and safe.


3 Days Tour from Fes to Marrakech via Merzouga desert and atlas mountains

One of the most gorgeous experiences I’ve ever had was a three-day, two-night excursion to the desert. The voyage was long, but time flew by with such beautiful scenery all around you: villages, mountains, and oasis.
Our driver, Hamid, was fantastic and really professional. Throughout our journey, we felt at ease and secure. Hamid knew a lot about Moroccan history and spoke excellent English.
I had a fantastic experience with this firm. I am overjoyed that the organization reacted quickly to my questions and concerns via email. Throughout the tour, we felt very protected and at ease.
