7 day tour from marrakech to Merzouga Desert Reviews
Great desert and city experience with Omar and Ibrahim (our tour guide and driver)
My gf and I enjoyed every second of Omar and Ibrahim's well mannered and professional company in our Morocco desert tour. Their SUV was clean and comfortable, and we definitely loved the music played along the trip. No delays or accidents, the whole route was relaxing and safe. In addition, Omar speaks fluent English and has tons of local knowledge while Ibrahim always puts on a big smile.
Well-organized, fun tour!
Our group of 5 had a wonderful, relaxed 7-day tour from Marrakech to Merzouga and back. From the time our driver/guide, Mohammad, picked us up, to the final day, everything was seamless, and well-organized, and interesting. Mohammad answered all of our many questions, and was willing to stop whenever we saw something intriguing we wanted to explore - we ended up going for some extra hikes, watching a local soccer game, and seeing many vistas! The hotels were all lovely, the food was delicious, and the camel ride into the dunes was unforgettable. Definitely recommend!
Great 7 Day trip from Marrakech to Erg Chebbi : Morocco in a bottle
This tour had a little of bit of everything in Morroco; both popular destinations and unique local events. This included marvelous views of the Dadés Valley and Todra Gorges as well as random hikes along the road trip. The camel ride to our campsite in the Sahara was also a once in a lifetime adventure. Ali was our driver and made us feel safe/secure whilst having the flexibility to allow us to explore. We had many questions since this was our first time in Africa. He answered all of our questions and was very respectful.
