Excursion from Marrakech to Merzouga

We traveled as a group of six on a private trips from marrakech to Sahara, and we all agreed that the excursion was fantastic. We are pleased and fortunate to have Hassan as our driver. He was not only a cautious and skilled driver, but he also had a warm, friendly, and helpful demeanor. He consistently went above and above for us, and we always felt warm and welcome in his company. We had undoubtedly formed a strong bond with Hassan for this 4 days tour from Marrakech. Lhoucine, the liaison officer, was also quite helpful, responding to questions quickly and providing frequent information. Finally, the accommodations supplied were excellent for a "normal tour," particularly our last night at the riad Amlal, which was stunning.

It's a shame we had bad weather on our second night in Sahara, because otherwise it would have been a fantastic experience. Also, a heads up that the breakfast and dinner meal offered may be a little repetitious, but it is nothing short of classic and authentic Moroccan cuisine.


 Morocco desert tours from Marrakech

My wife and I spent our honeymoon in Morocco. With Lhoucine, we embarked on a tour from Marrakech to Merzouga. That was the most intelligent decision I've ever made. Our Marrakech to Sahara desert tour was made more meaningful by our humble and friendly driver/guide, Ali. He took us to a breathtakingly gorgeous location and stopped whenever we asked. He is fluent in English and looked after us whenever we had lunch because we couldn't understand the menus. He made certain that we had what we desired, and we are delighted. He's also highly knowledgeable and understands exactly what he's doing. On our honeymoon, we were also surprised with a cake and a party. I was overjoyed and grateful. Overall, I had a fantastic time here, and it was without a doubt the highlight of my trip. Those who want to experience the Marrakech to sahara desert should go here. Thank you for the wedding present, Ali. We'll be careful to keep it safe and cherish the moment. This wonderful event will be remembered fondly by me!
