- Pickup available
- Duration: 1 day
We loved our tour. Mustapher, our driver, our tour guide, is great. He is prompt, knowledgeable, detail in all aspect, and good conservationist. We are a group of 3 friends+ Patrick, who we met in this tour, total 4. We had so much fun, good conversation, good information regarding Morocco, the country, different types of cultures, family etc. We get to see so much of this region, from Fez to Marrakech, different villages, towns, "cities" etc. He made different stops for us to experience the towns, and stretches. It's a lot of car time, but a lot of interesting, fantastic view. The Sahara desert is amazing, sunset, camel ride, Berber tent, dinner, camp fire and dancing. The next morning, we watch the sunrise, yummy breakfast, more camel ride, more sight seeing and learning from Mustapher, until the 2nd night in a beautiful hotel, we loved it. Great hot shower, yummy buffet dinner, great accommodation, and yummy buffet breakfast in the morning. Highlight of our trip. LoveLove
As others have said, there is a lot of driving involved (especially through mountains - be aware if you get car sick!), but this is fantastic if you want to see a lot of Morocco in a short period of time. The stops were really worthwhile and certainly made us feel as though we had seen more of the “real” Morocco, something we could not have organised ourselves. All the food and accommodation provided were great, the only thing that was a little inadequate was the bedding in the Berber tent, which was not warm enough for the conditions. Our driver was very good and let us stop when we needed for coffee and bathroom breaks, and even drove us away from a restaurant we didn’t like so that we had more choice for lunch. I would definitely recommend this tour, as you get a lot for the price!
We definitely recommend this experience to anyone visiting Morocco for at least 4 days. There is quite a large amount of time spent in the car, though it is worth the effort and wait. You will enjoy the trip, seeing breathtaking natural landscapes, and the destinations, experiencing true customs as a local. Both drivers (we had Simo and Mohamed) and the guides (at the desert camp and in Rissani market) are well informed, flexible, extremely kind and professional! The hotel and its facilities in ouarzazate were simply perfect.
Great tour in a small group (6-8 people) with Abder, our fantastic driver who took us from Fes to Marrakech, sharing his knowledge and humour on the trip. Highly recommended trip to see the desert and Atlas Mountains if you are going from Fes to Marrakech!
We loved the trip into the desert and the camel rides. Our driver and guide we’re friendly and knowledgeable. But it is a lot of driving! And it’s quite cold in the tent in January!
