This is a trip for those who have limited time or those who prefer to see the desert like us. We are a group of 4 and decided to go for the Desert Safari. Stopped in wonderful places like ait ben Haddou kasbah, overnight in Dades gorge and enjoyed a short walk in Todra canyon. Moreover, the weather in the desert was perfect! The dunes give a magnificent view with the sunset and sunrise. We had brief camel ride which is fun. Our guide was an expert on wheels on the way back to Merzouga village! We really enjoyed. Brahim helped us also with cool and amazing photos along the way to Fes via céder forest.
We had a very good Morocco desert trip from Marrakech to Fes via Sahara desert. I pass on all our thanks to excursion in morocco agency crew’s for all their effort. Hamid and Omar were excellent in their driving, assistance, advice and attention. We also, enjoyed their company a lot. We enjoyed Morocco Sahara desert tour a lot, it was all we expected and the tour and places we visited were great. It’s a pity we did not have a bit more time in the Sahara Desert. The Berber camp was a worthwhile experience … Again, thanks for your help and best wishes.
