Marrakech 4 Day Desert Tour Via Ouerzazat And Merzouga

Marrakech 4 Day Desert Tour Via Ouerzazat And Merzouga

By Planet Of Morocco
Taking a three day desert tour to Erg chebbi dunes in Merzouga , means sitting in the car for ten hours on the days last day from Merzouga to Marrakech. We therefore recommend a minimum of 4 days for a Desert Tour from Marrakech to Erg Chebbi to break the journey each way and have time to see the sites along the route.The 4 and 5 Days Sahara Desert Tour to Erg Chebbi dunes and back to Marrakech are highly recommended simply because there are so many things to see and do besides camel trekking and a night stay in a deep Sahara desert camp. Arriving early to the hotel at the foot hills of Erg Chebbi dunes, enjoy a cup of tea, see some nomads living in tents, wander with a local guide in palmary or hike in Dades valley or Todra gorges, spend more time in the best spots of south of Morocco.

          Destination Worth the Drive: An Unforgettable Journey Awaits
          Chefchaouen is very amazing. As agreed with my fellow solo travelers during my trip, this is the best city that we've ever been in Morocco. The people are very kind and friendly. I'm happy that Planet of Morocco helped me to make my trip possible. I arrived at Casablanca, and with their help, I was able to visit interesting places along the way. The duration of my trip is very limited. Mohamed (the tour leader), assisted me in arranging my schedule so I could visit all the places that I wanted to visit in a short period. No days or hours are wasted. They are flexible too, although they are honest to share the actual situation in the places that I wanted to visit. From Casablanca, I was able to visit significant places in Rabat. At Chefchaouen, they assisted me in almost everything. I'm happy with Mohamed's willingness to take photos and videos of his clients. Our driver, Khalid, is so cool! During the road trip, you may request any music that you want, but I strongly suggest hearing his playlist of Moroccan and African songs. After Chefchaouen, they also helped me to connect with reliable people at Fez, like Ayoub who assisted me like a bodyguard during the wee hours, and Idris who is a very kind guide at Fez.

          Majestic Sahara!
          The tour is amazing. You should get Planet of Morocco if you are planning to visit the Sahara desert from Fez. The 1st thing that I appreciate about them is being contactable before and after the tour. The journey is quite tiring but no time has been wasted during the entire tour. The dinner is so delicious. We were given a chance to play with some musical instruments during our night stay in the Sahara desert. There's a djellaba for each of us to wear during the cold nights in the Sahara desert. The facilities are well maintained. The experience during the long drive from Ouarzazate is also amazing. We did a simple movie skit during our tour at Atlas Studio. Such an amazing experience.

          5 stars for Planet or Morocco!
          Planet of Morocco made our trip to Morocco absolutely incredible! I highly highly recommend using a guided tour for your travels throughout Morocco. Our guide’s name was Mohammad and he took incredible care of us. He negotiated with vendors on our behalf, opened doors for us, and prepaid for meals so that we could relax during our lunch stops. He was a true gentleman and we couldn’t have been happier with our experience. Planet of Morocco made our trip special and we became life long friends with our guide, Mohammad.

          Must go Sahara in Morocco
          We booked a 3d2n tour from Fez to Marrakech via Merzouga. We were being picked up on time from hotel and dropped by at the meeting point to Merzouga to the camp. Driver Mohammed was attentive and made few stops for us to stretch our legs and get some water (sun was scorching In August! I ) One tip: bring enough snacks for the 8 hours driving! People in camp are very friendly and the food was good. Last but not least, person in charge from Planet of Morroco you is always reachable.

          Unforgettable 3-Day Marrakech Desert Tour with Morocco Travel Desert
          Morocco Travel Desert provided an exceptional 3-day Marrakech desert tour. Mohammad, our agent, ensured a memorable experience with his professionalism and extensive knowledge. The tour offered unique desert experiences from camel trek to a ride with a 4x4 car and ATV, comfortable accommodations in luxury tents in the heart of dunes of Erg chebbk, and delicious meals for diner and breakfast. Attention to detail and customer satisfaction were evident throughout the trip. Highly recommended for an unforgettable desert adventure in Marrakech.

          Spectacular Volubilis
          This site was one of our highlights. Literally translating to morning glory for the vines of climbing flowers, Volubilis was once a thriving town 10,000 strong, but it is now a 100 acre Roman Ruin. The aqueducts are in evidence (though the water source has long since dried up), and there are some moderately well preserved mosaics reminiscent of those in Pompeii (though nowhere as well preserved). Explorers of this site can wander around almost unrestricted, taking in the once grand homes and temples, not to mention the public meeting place and forum. Highly recommend this of you're visiting Morocco and it's a couple of hour drive from Casablanca.

          The experience of a lifetime
          One of my most unforgettable experiences in nature! I have just returned from an absolutely fantastic trip to the Morocco and the Sahara desert. My adult daughter and I were fortunate to find Sami, with Planet of Morocco, who picked us up in Fez and took us to the south of the country to a Berber camp. The Berber people there are among the kindest people who can be found anywhere. They and the Planet of Morocco team, took us out into the desert on camels. There we sand boarded and climbed a high dune to see the sunset. After our ride back we had a delicious meal of tajine, salad, and a fruit dessert. We then danced around a fire to Berber drumming. Our accommodations were fabulous. Yes, tents, but more than tents--the Hyatt Regency of tents, private bathroom, shower, king size bed, and even a cat (which can be optional). I believe my desert trip was one of the most fun things I have done in my life. Then, on the way to Marrakech, we stopped at a women's carpet cooperative. Sami helped us with the bargaining. We both ended up with lovely Berber carpets. We could not have afforded them without his help. (Don't worry, we didn't exploit the women. Insane bargaining is the national sport of Morocco.) Sami is extremely cordial. For example, one night, I came in about midnight. When I came in, Sammy told me he was very tired. He looked beat! I later found some of the group wanted some bottled water. Even though it was after midnight and he was very tired, Sami drove them around searching for about an hour until they could find a place open so they could buy some. He's that kind of guy. If you are coming to Morocco, I highly recommend Sami with the Planet of Morocco. He will take good care of you and you will have a great time in Morocco.

          Fantastic experience!
          My 70-something Dad and I booked this private tour. Our guide was Sami, and we spent time with another younger group who had Fouad as their guide. It was a fantastic experience! Most importantly, we were always comfortable and safe. Sami took good care of us. Communication was easy. Sami can speak English, French, and Arabic all in the same minute. He laughed with us and he helped us navigate bargaining for hand-made Berber carpets. He let us know when we were passing the last restaurant or toilette for the next 50 miles or so. He stopped on a dime when I asked if I could take a picture of a bird sitting on a power pole. I am from a town in the mountains of North Carolina. At first, to me, Sami's driving seemed crazy, but after watching a while, I realized that he was driving fairly defensively. He was clearly aware of where he needed to be ready to stop or speed up. He was watching what other drivers and other pedestrians were doing. He was ready in case they did something funny. He slowed for animals and although he passed several times on those narrow curvy roads, he never passed when I felt uncomfortable. When he turned us over to the people in the "camp", he stayed with us most of the time, but we had another set of beautiful people working with us. M'hummad who led our camels into the dunes was fabulous! There are 3 M'hummad's and I think this was the elder. He was funny and kind. He took pictures of us as a group, and he took our camels off the long ropes to take pictures of just Dad and me together. He helped us all get started on the sandboard. Later, he danced with us as the drums were played around the fire. The dinner in the "camp" was fabulous salad, tagine, and fruit. The water provided to drink was bottled water. The water in our cabin's shower, sink, and toilet did not have much pressure at all, so I never even really got enough to know if the shower got hot. I had read that there would be bugs to take lots of bug spray. I didn't see any bugs and didn't get any bites. Maybe earlier in the year there are bugs? We did have a cat invite himself into our room, but I think he would have run away if we had tried to scare him off. The second and third days we spent a little more time with Fouad and the rest of the group. What a neat group of people! Fouad and Sami obviously work well together, and that helped us all to have more fun together. Sami figured out that he and my Dad both like Ray Charles, so we spent some time singing "What'd I say" and "Hit the Road Jack" before we moved on to some Keb' Mo and then Dad's favorite-ACDC. One thing I did not expect was the police who stop vehicles every 50, 60, 70 miles? Sometimes they wave you through. Sometimes they make you pull over and they come get documents from the driver. Sami would get out and talk. Often I would hear laughing. Then Sami would come back and we would drive on. I was startled the first time or two, but apparently this is a common occurrence. We were sad when our tour ended and Sami and Fouad had to leave us. I would recommend Sami and Fouad to any adventure-bound traveler!

          Excellent transport service
          Mohammed organized our transport in Marrakech. He was super nice and made himself available all the time. The driver took us to visit Marrakech. If you are looking for safe private transport, and don’t know where to go in Marrakech, I recommend this agency. They organized our visits, took us everywhere we wanted, and recommended very good restaurants for a very good price.

          Most recommended Tour in Morocco, The 3 day desert trip is a must !!!
          Very recommended, very fair price, ask for Mohamed! (Send greetings from Tommy & his crew!) We hired the tour, we doubted a lot because there are many Business. They picked us up at our hostel at the indicated time. The van was in very good condition and was very comfortable. Mohammed, the guide, was super friendly and attentive all the time, he is a very good person and knows a lot about many topics in general, in addition to what you see along the way. The trip is long but it is well worth it, you go through many different landscapes and climates, until you reach the desert, the people who work at the campsite are very friendly and fun, the food is super abundant and delicious. We were able to see the night sky and the sunrise, beautiful. The second day you travel to Ouarzazate, you pass through some very beautiful towns, in Risani we got off and the company had hired a local guide, who explained many things about the place and the culture of the Sahara in general, very interesting. That night we slept in Ouarzazate where we slept in a wonderful hotel, very luxurious, clean and with buffet dinner included. The next day (among other things)! We went to Ait Ben Haddou, with plenty of time to explore and get to know, then we set off for Marrakech, where they left us very close to our hotel, which, being in the medina, is not accessible by car. The truth is a very nice experience, we had a great time and relaxed because they take care of everything. All the people who work know a lot and it is very nice to share with them. Thanks !!

          Best Week-end in The Moroccan Sahara Desert
          Thanks to Mohammed and Sami for an amazing trip. We went with a group of friends for a weekend to Morocco, traveling from Fez to Merzouga, We were accompanied by Sami, who were attentive to every detail so that we had the best possible experience. I recommend them 100%. Being accompanied by some people who are experts in the country and its culture, friendly and trustworthy, has made this trip a great experience. Our next trip is going to be through the north of Morocco and without a doubt we are going to do it with Planet of Morocco very soon. Thank you very much, we already miss you! Best Desert trip in Morocco!!

          Amazing journey with Planet of Morocco! Book this trip it worths
          Our four-day trip with our guide Mohammed exceeded all our expectations. We were picked up from Fez and travelled southwards along several smaller towns and cities, until Merzouga Erg Chebbi where we spent our first night in a very comfortable luxury camp. Seeing the sun rise over sand dunes from my kingsize bed is not something I'll forget easily :) The next night we spent deeper in the desert, in Erg Chebbi Dunes. After that, we made our way to Ouerzazate where we slept in a lovely and luxurious hotel, to finish our journey by driving along the Atlas Mountains towards Marrakech. The programme was very varied and relaxing trip. - Mohammed is an excellent driver who made us feel safe and comfortable the entire journey. We stopped often to take in the views and drink some coffee, and Mohammed even made us a delicious picnic by an oasis. The distances between places are significant, but sitting in the car and seeing the beautiful scenery and desert wildlife (camels, gazelles, donkeys, etc) was a fun experience in itself. All the staff in the camps were friendly and professional, and were very flexible to accommodate our needs and preferences. This area can definitely not be explored independently, unless you are a highly experienced off-road driver and speak the local dialects. Our trip allowed us to experience this part of Morocco (an area not to be missed) in the most comfortable, safe and fun way possible. I will be recommending Mohammed and Planet of Morocco to all my friends and family visiting Morocco 🇲🇦 !
