Amazing experience of morocco private desert tours!

We went on an excursion from Marrakech to Merzouga journey with Youssef from Marrakech to Merzouga, passing through the Atlas Mountains, the Ait ben Haddou Kasbah, Rose Valley, Todra and Dades Valley. We had a great day and were pleased with the arrangement; the tour guide spoke excellent English, and the car was quite comfortable. Since 1987, Ait ben Haddou Kasbah has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site. (It's definitely worth a visit!) Our guide followed our itinerary to the letter, stopping at a few additional locations along the way to allow us see and photograph them. The camel ride was also a highlight of our trip!


 Sahara desert tour from Marrakech!!

Desert Merzouga Tours provided us (three 30-something women) with an unforgettable experience of Merzouga trip from Marrakech. We chose this tour Marrakech company because they offered the best (lowest) price and because Lhoucine promptly responded to my email and followed up — unlike other tour companies, they went above and above to ensure that my queries were promptly answered prior to the trip. Rashid was our fantastic driver/guide on the real trip; he picked us up promptly every morning and ensured that we had a rich experience of Morocco, delivering plenty of knowledge and amusement along the route. The riads were equally beautiful, and the night of glamping in the Sahara Desert was wonderful. We had no issues about the cuisine or activities because they were typical of a tourist resort. Overall, we had a fantastic vacation and would strongly suggest Desert Merzouga Tours to anyone. They appreciate your business and respond quickly to unique needs. Thank you! Saha!
