Great 5 Days Marrakech to Merzouga Desert Tour

What an incredible experience we`ve got from Marrakech to Merzouga desert, our driver was really excellent and very professional. The accommodation was simply perfect with a high standard quality. The desert trip was unique!!!.

5 day tour Marrakech-Merzouga- excellent experience

This 5-day desert tour from Marrakech to Merzouga Sahara was absolutely amazing. The Moroccan landscape was like nothing I have seen before, and the night in the Sahara desert was an experience of a lifetime, although it was cold and windy... It even snowed on the next day! We felt very welcomed the whole time and would highly recommend this trip to anyone.

Best experience of life

My boyfriend and I planned a trip with this organization and didn’t know what to expect. Before you go, you don’t know a lot about the trip. This makes it a little bit strange, but maybe even more interesting. From the first beginning, this trip was an amazing experience. We did a 5 day trip with 4 nights, one in the Dades valley and two in the desert the last one in Ouarzazate. Everything was well-organized and we saw many beautiful places.
