Reviews about our 8 Days Desert Trip from Tangier to Marrakech
Perfect Tangier to Marrakech in 8 days!
Said was excellent from the first contact we had over email. We proposed a trip from Tangier to Marrakech with my parents, adult brother, and my fiancée.
He organized the whole thing! We had an excellent driver for the full 8 days who was very knowledgeable and spoke excellent English.
Days were busy and action-packed due to our schedule – Said had organized city guides at the major cities we visited and handpicked our riads for us.
Dinners and breakfasts were all included in the trip cost - but this is customizable if you're not into that.
A real highlight was the desert trek into the Sahara on camels and staying in the Berber camp for the evening. A truly awesome experience!
8 day itinerary from Tangier to Marrakesh
The best 8 days ever. Loved every minute of the trip. Our guide Omar took care of everything. We just flopped into the car every morning and we were driven from town to town and from one beautiful landscape to another.
He handpicked every official guide in the main cities and made sure we were always in good hands. Our trip was definitely memorable and we have to thank Omar for it.
