5 Day Desert Tour from Marrakech to Merzouga

Family Traveller

I recommend this agency to everyone who wants to experience the real Morocco. During 5 days Marrakech desert trip we visited the most characteristic places and slept in the Sahara Desert. We had a very good guide and driver (greetings to Ibrahim), they arranged good quality ranges for us for all 4 nights including breakfast and dinner. No hidden costs everything was very clear as they told us also the price was lower than other agencies. The car had air conditioning and was new and clean (4 x 4 Pajero). Our trip was earlier of 2020.
