5 days tour Marrakech-Merzouga- excellent experience
We had a wonderful trip to Morocco, the highlight of which was the journey through the frozen Atlas mountain range and overnight at a Berber camp in the Sahara desert.
Having been guided and accompanied by Omar was fundamental for me and my daughter to feel totally calm and to make the most of our incredible foray into the beautiful landscape, culture, and Moroccan hospitality. Thank you, Omar!!
Best experience I ever had!
All the scheduling and planning were done by email and WhatsApp, and Said answered us very quickly and took all my doubts.
We waived the camel tour and arrived at the desert camp by car, and it was very quiet.
The van that we did the whole tour accommodated 6 people comfortably, and the driver Youssef was very friendly and helpful throughout the journey.
We recommend this tour!
Unique 5 days Desert Tour from Marrakech to Merzouga
We took a 4x4 tour of 5 days to the desert from Marrakech, during which we visited a nomadic family, an old mine, a dry lake in August, and the Merzouga irrigation system. The guide is very attentive and pleasant, knows the place very well, and speaks perfect English.
In the afternoon, we dromedary to the highest dune in the region, where we climbed on foot, the views from above are very beautiful.
The camels seemed well looked after, which worried me before making the excursion, even if we made the return on foot, living the experience with the outward journey was enough for me.
We certainly recommend this good company for visits to Merzouga. Thank you very much.
