Price for desert excursion (Marrakech to Fez 3D2N/4D3N)

Hi everyone,

I have read through the common questions, but seems can't find an updated price reference for tours for a desert excursion. We are 4 girls doing this (Marrakech to Fez 3D2N or 4D3N). Tour companies quote us 160 euro/person (all inclusive for 4D3N). I think it is still a lot for the price in Morroco, right? Can anyone suggest a market price for reference? Should I book ahead or book via Riad upon arrival?

Thanks everyone for helping!

No, I think it is quite good price and if you have all inclusive, I mean even the meals, then it is not bad price.

Thank you, Khamlia. I checked with the friend who helps with the bookings. The price should include transport camel and food, and room but exclude Lunch, beverage, entrance fees (museums) and gratuities. It's 4D3N for 160 euro per person. Is it still a good deal.

i got handed a flyer just today from a tour company offering 3D/2N half board @ €100 per person - I have no idea if they are good but it gives an idea of the prices you can find when you get to Marrakech.

But really there is no standard price, it all depends on the quality of transport, accomodation and guide - there is a big different between going in an old minibus with 12 other people and going by air conditioned jeep.

As Nibrika writes, it depend of the quality of everything. If it is by minibus with many people, then it is quite much this price. If it is by 4x4 it is quite OK price.

You can calculate self:

camel trek usually cost around 35EUR it is with half board. The room also around 30 EUR, sometimes only with breakfast, sometimes with half board, so 3 nights is already approx 100EUR. Then car and fuel, the driver so ...

I am currently looking at 3 days and 2 nights in and out of Marrakech for my husband and I. Looked at the top rated tours on trip advisor and was quoted much more, 300-360 EUR. If anyone knows of better rates with reputable company, let me know. Thanks.

It all depends on how many of you are travelling:

The main cost of the excursion is the driver cost, you can expect to pay around €150 per day, so for a 3 day trek you are looking at around €450, then you have 2 nights accommodation, which will be around €90 for 2 people (€45 each), so that is a total of around €540, so if there are only 2 of you going on the trip, you would be looking at around €270 each.

If there were 4 of you going then the driver cost would be the same, you would just need to add another €90 for the accommodation, so that would be a total of €630 (€157 each).
