3-Day Guided Desert Tour from Fez to Marrakech

Getting from Fez to Marrakech independently often means a flight or self-drive via Casablanca—thereby missing Morocco’s deserts and Atlas Mountains. This 3-day private trip makes more of the journey, with camel treks and overnight camping in the Erg Chebbi dunes before stops at Ait-Ben-Haddou, the Todra Gorges, and Ouarzazate; and traversing the Atlas to Marrakech. Transport, two nights’ accommodation, and most meals are included to make everything easy.

Overnight Sahara Tour from Marrakech to Mhamid

If you're short on time but want to spend the night in the night in a typical nomad tent in the Sahara Desert, consider this private tour out to Mhamid. Leave from Marrakech in the morning, crossing the Atlas Mountains and the town of Tamegrout before taking a camel ride to a desert camp in Mhamid. The next morning, start back towards Marrakech, stopping for lunch and kasbah visits along the way.

Imlil and Atlas Mountains Day Trip from Marrakech

Travel to the mountain village of Imlil on a full-day trip from Marrakech, and discover the stark, beautiful scenery of the High Atlas. Explore undulating walnut orchards, slip into the winding Moulay Brahim Gorge and get a glimpse of local life in the small community of Asni. Delve farther into the rumpled landscape: mount a mule to climb from Imlil to Aroumd, whose terraced gardens cascade down the steep valley walls, and enjoy a traditional meal in a Berber home.

Sahara Adventure in 4 days

This tour was the starting point for all other desert tours going to Erg-Chebbi Merzouga because it´s simply the best, anyone taking a 2 or a 3 days tour is only because they can´t take the 4 days tour ( time or price wise). This tour covers a lot of attractions, roads, sights, visits and at a comfortable pace without spending too much time in the car

Omar made this one of the best trips we’ve been on! We had so much fun, seeing more of Morocco than we imagined possible in three days. The long stretches in the car were beautiful and entertaining, and our guide’s care and attention made the whole trip amazing! Our favorite part was the evening in the Sahara desert where we stayed up late drumming round the campfire and solving riddles. We upgraded to the luxury camp which was definitely worth it!! All the places we stayed were so beautiful and amazing, we couldn’t believe it! In the midst of a very touristic activities, we felt singled out and special. After this trip, we felt like we’d gotten a real taste of Morocco and were more equipped to visit the rest of the country on our own. We highly recommend this trip and only wish we had booked longer. We’ve missed Omar and his wonderful smile ever since and hope to see him again!

I can't recommend this company enough. Our driver, Mohammed Mohafafa, was wonderful. He was extremely personable and knowledgable, answering all of our questions about Morocco history and culture. His friendliness and hospitality made our trip unforgettable. The tour itself was great, we actually did the 3 night and 4 day tour but TripAdvisor doesn't offer that as an option for some reason. If you have the time and money I recommend it. The added day makes the pace really enjoyable and meant we never felt rushed. The riads we stayed in were stunning, the restaurants were pretty good though I would have liked to stop in at a few more restaurants that catered to locals rather than tourists. If you're thinking of doing this tour, do it. And if you're wondering which company book with, stop wondering and book with Authentic Sahara Tours. You won't regret it.

My group of 12 absolutely loved this experience. Our driver, Zaid, was fun and easygoing. Seeing the Sahara dunes for the first time is like something out of a movie. The camel ride was a highlight of the trip, and the campsite was lovely. We enjoyed singing and dancing with our hosts after dinner. Hotel accommodations on the second night were great. Highly recommend this tour.

First, we cannot say enough incredible things about Jamal. He was really friendly and had tons of local knowledge and history to share along the tour. This experience was easily the highlight of our trip, we felt like we saw a lot of Morocco. Seeing the gorges, the dunes, riding the camels, it was an incredibly memory that no one should miss out on. We even had the perfect timing of using Jamal for our one day tour to Chefchaouen, which was another highlight worth considering from Fes. The company was fast to reply, accommodating, and friendly. Would highly recommend this tour and company to anyone coming to visit Morocco.

We are two friends that did the shared tour from Marrakesh to Fès together with two other persons and our amazing driver Jamal. We felt really safe with him, because he drove really good and the car was big and comfortable. He showed us all the important and most beautiful spots and explained a lot about the country and its culture. We would highly recommend driving with Jamal (we went with him also to Chefchaouen). Thanks for the amazing experience!! The places to sleep were always clean and good. We were really impressed by the desert tour and the camel ride. All the people that we met were so nice and open/happy to share their stories! Don't hesitate to book a tour with Jamal!
