Reviews about our 5 Days Desert Tour Fes to Marrakech
5 days/ 4 nights Fes to Marrakech
This whole tour was an unforgettable experience! We traveled in comfort in an air-conditioned 4x4 through the ever-changing landscape of Morocco. Our excellent Berber guide had an intimate knowledge of the desert and its people and richly explained the culture and traditions of the area.
Ali (our guide) really looked after us, crucially insisting we take extra water on an overnight camel trek over the desert and setting our mind at ease about every stage of the tour with his professionalism and affable personality.
All the accommodation of the tour was top class all with swimming pools to cool down after a hot day in the desert and great breakfasts and evening meals. We would have never had seen or experienced this part of Morocco traveling independently.

5 days/ 4 nights Desert tour Fes to Marrakech
The 5-day desert tour between Fes and Marrakech was an amazing way to see Morocco outside of the cities. The trip was so easy to book, I communicated directly with our tour guide Ibrahim and he answered all questions really quickly.
Although the trip involves a lot of driving don't let that put you off, the car was really comfortable, the scenery was stunning and Ali taught us a lot about the country along the way.
Highlights for me were sitting around the campfire in the Sahara desert listening to traditional Berber drum music and having a go at sandboarding the following morning. It was also a lot of fun getting to know everyone else staying in the camp and the Kasbah riad on the second night; there were 10 of us in total.
