We did a day tour out to the Ouzoud waterfalls. The driver and guide were ten minutes early, and then we were off. It was really worthwhile to have a private tour, and to have something organised from this end before you go. (Youseff is very good at getting back to you by email to organise it all before you set off). I paid a deposit by Paypal, and paid the rest at the end of the tour. Nice and simple. Dirhams or Euros are fine.

The trip is long, but definitely worth it when you get there. We trekked about, had something to eat, and then when we were done, we found them and we could go back home. SO nice not to have to wait for a busload of lemmings to finish.

Our guide Ismail was very chatty and taught us a lot about how Rammadan works and the Berber people. On the way back I think we all dozed a bit (apart from the driver!!). We could stop to take some pcitures of things that grabbed us on our way (so a cattle bartering market, or a french fortress). Nothing was too much trouble. Ismail's English was excellent.

The driver didnt speak much English but he seemed obliging enough.

It might be pricier than arranging a cab to take you there and back, or to do a bigger tour group. For us, though, this was totally worth it.

Merzougha is roughly a 7-8 hour drive from Fes through the Mid and High Atlas Mountains. It is the best way to see large sand dunes. You arrive and then take a 1-1.5 hour camel ride into the dunes. Many choose to overnight in the dunes with an organized tour. Many options are available from many of the local hotels in and around the area. It is possible to have part of your group stay in a hotel and part of your group spend the night in the dunes. We have arranged and sent many groups to Merzougha and many say they prefer to stay one extra day in the large dunes. You can climb the dunes, snowboard down the dunes. The best time to go is April/May. The summer time gets too hot. Groups find it comfortable to do an overnight in during December and Jan. It is worth mentioning that this is a longer drive from Marrakech and cannot be reached in one day. You can visit small dunes in a city called Zagora which is about a 7 hour drive from Marrakech, yet the dunes there are not even in the same category as the ones in Merzougha.

This was probably one of the best experiences of my life. I did a three day tour with three of my friends, and I am so glad we picked this. Our guide's name was Youssef and he was awesome! He met is in Marrakech, and from there we began an amazing three day adventure. A beautiful hotel on the first night, a night in the desert on the second, and on the third day we ended up in Fes. I seriously wish we could have done more time in the desert. I can't describe the amazing views, the amazing experience, it was truly unforgettable.

I loved our off-road adventures, and our drives through various Berber villages. It's something that you truly have to experience at least once in your life.

Make sure that you get Youssef and his driver (forgot his name.....yikes) for this. Truly worth the money!
