Reviews about our 3 days desert tour Marrakech to Fes
Best Choice ever! (3 days Marrakech to Fes desert tour)
This April my best friend and I decided to do a last-minute trip to Morocco. The 3 days Marrakech to Fes desert tour looked like the best way to see a lot of the countryside. Because we were limited on time.
Said was great at corresponding with us and supporting us latest minute.
I wrote to many tour companies and picked this one on pure ability and I was not disappointed. Youssef met us at our hotel and assured us that everything was in place. Addi, our tour guide/driver, was very helpful and enlightening. He almost made driving in Morocco look safe. The hotel was as promised and the camp in the desert excellent.
I feel that Addi and Co. were flexible and ready to make our adventure as unique as we desired. Also, when we compared costs with others who had booked alike trips with other agencies, it was clear that Morocco Tours agency prices were more than fair.
I would definitely recommend this tour agency as well as use them again.
Excellent 3 days private desert tour from Marrakech to Fes
We had a Marrakech to Fes desert tour for 3 days. I must say this experience is so marvelous. Said and his friends provided us with good accommodations, a 4x4 vehicle, and a very pleasant driver who can speak graceful English.
On the way to the Sahara desert, there are several wonderful spectacular spots and you can stop at any time if you want. Our driver Brahim was patient to tell us the history of these sites. He also provided us much help when we talked with someone who can't speak English.
In the desert, we have a warm tent with a private bathroom and hot water (superior option), and Hassan prepared a traditional Morocco dinner for us. This is the best meal we had in Morocco.
I really appreciated everyone in this agency. I really recommend them to everyone, when I visit Sahara next time, definitely I would like to choose them.
Great desert tour, thoroughly recommend
We did a 3 days Marrakesh to Fes desert tour. Said was great at organizing the trip and answering any questions and Ahmed, our driver, was also always patient and very knowledgeable about the local area.
The accommodation afforded was of very high quality, with the tents in the desert were out of our expectation, even including showers and proper toilets!>Feeding the Barbary Apes in the cedar forest of Azrou was hilarious.
I would thoroughly recommend the tour!
A JOURNEY TO REPEAT
We preferred to do this 3 days trip from Marrakech to the Sahara desert and Fes as a part of a one-year anniversary trip. The trip to the desert is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
The camel ride in the wavy, orange, and impressive sand dunes of Erg Chebbi was a ton of fun and the dunes are beautiful both in the evening and at sunrise.
The ride to reach the desert is rather long, about 1h and a half, but it is exciting to see Morocco's various landscapes. I also really appreciated stopping at Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah and Rissani on the way to Fes.
This desert trip gives you a sensation of life outside the city that you will not get if you only visit the cities.
