Local farmers selling their products, artist stalls with shelves full of magnificent ceramics, and local crafts can all be seen along the serpent roads, which are a wonder of contemporary civil engineering with their tight turns.
The Todra Gorge, with a succession of spectacular limestone river gorges, is one of the natural wonders not to be missed. The deep banks of the Todra River are best viewed from the overlook at the end of the “snake” road.

The boundless scarlet and orange dunes of the Erg Chebbi will leave you speechless.

What customers say about Moroccan Desertr Tours

Just amazing!

The best trip we did in a long time! Choosing an adventure like this can be a little complicated because there are so many options on the internet, but without a doubt "Moroccan Desert Tours" is the right choice. The guides were spectacular! Very kind, attentive, friendly, eager to transmit and share their culture and open to listen to ours. We did the 4 day trip, it is very well structured and organized (although we sincerely recommend the 5 day trip, as there are many km) the experience on the camel and sleeping in the tents is indescribable! Watching the sunset in the dunes and feeling that tranquility is priceless. They treated us great, the places they took us to were spectacular and all the staff was very attentive to us. Definitely recommendable experience and mandatory to book the tour with them!

Highly recommended

We chose the private 5-day trip from Marrakech to Fes rather the other way since it was more suited to our itinerary. Moroccan Desert Tours' owner, Youssef, was very accommodating to our requests and changed the excursion appropriately. More significantly, we had a comfy vehicle with a kind driver who customized the brakes to our preferences. Our night in the desert was fantastic; we were completely at ease, and the meal was delicious. At addition, the camp in Erg Chebbi was incredibly luxurious, with a toilet and shower built right into the tent. It was superior than the majority of the hotels we visited! In the automobile, you sit a lot, but you also get to see a lot of the country. Everything was taken extremely seriously, and we were never pulled into a business or coerced to make a purchase. Youssef's e-mail communication was a little delayed at times, but he undoubtedly had a lot on his plate at this time. I would highly suggest these Morocco vacation trips!

Moroccan Desert Tours

For Moroccan Desert excursions, I suggest this travel agency. We came from our journey from the High Atlas to Merzouga, traveling via the Valley of Dades, the Valley of the Roses, the Gorges of Todra, and Erg Chebbi. Said, we only have so many praises for you. Since the moment we left the hotel, the journey has been really serious and safe. Even more, it's been incredibly amusing and unique. Thank you for the guidance and all you've shown us. Furthermore, the stay at Erg Chebbi was fantastic; it was really hot, but that was to be expected given that it was a night in early July. They gave us information about the Berber culture that we didn't have before, and it was the highlight of our Moroccan desert tour. The things we saw were wonderful, and we would take this trip again in a heartbeat if we could have the same guides! Many thanks to this Moroccan travel service!

Definitely amazing

We did an 8 day tour starting from Marrakech. It was absolutely wonderful. Our guide Hmad, was always attentive to our needs, is a great driver, knows the secrets of the Berbers and exactly where to take us. We had a lot of fun with him. We had an inconvenience with one of the hotels and both Hmad and Hassan were quick and diligent in solving the problem for us. The desert experience in the tents was amazing. This is a 100% recommended trip and with Moroccan Desert Tours you will be sure that everything will be perfect.

Thank you Hassan

Our first time in Morocco and in the desert was an extraordinary trip!!!! It was like an Indiana Jones adventure! It was a 5 days trip visiting the North, South, East and West of the country by road. We met extraordinary places and beautiful and friendly people!!!!! Each city visited was like being in a different world full of stories and amazing things. Traveling by camel through the dunes to get to the camp, dancing and singing to the sound of the drums with our African hosts around the big campfire, and then listening to the silence watching the stars from the top of the dunes. Sleeping in the tent and waking up to see the sunrise.... is like a wonderful fairy tale! A dream! Thank you for the excellent service and coordination! Our star driver Hamid makes the tour so much fun and extraordinary! Thank you!

Moroccan Desert Tours is the best!

Everything was wonderful from the start! Despite the fact that my partner and I picked the 4-day Sahara trip, it was an incredible experience! Our guide Mohamed, who was always on time, accurate, competent, open, and happy to answer any question, guaranteed that we had the best day possible! We highly suggest seeing Morocco! Hassan, thank you very much... Now we have a Moroccan friend!

Top locations to visit with Moroccan Desert Tours

Say hello to the Red city Marrakech:

To begin, Marrakech delivers incredible experiences as it straddles the line between tradition and innovation. As you meander through the Jemaa El-Fna square and the souks with their glistening colors and unique fragrances, the red city provides a complete change of view. Horse-drawn carriage rides, sunny patios, traveling artists, and other day and night activities will all be back in full force.

When you visit one of Medina’s many riads or small oriental castles with beautiful patios, you will be amazed. All of Medina’s architectural treasures will be visible to you. The Menara, a vast garden with an iconic basin, is also a wonderful spot to relax and unwind. Marrakech enchants visitors with its beauty and diversity. To immerse oneself in modern Morocco, all you have to do is go beyond the gates. The most modern infrastructure may be found in the Gueliz and Hivernage areas. Wide boulevards, luxury boutiques, and foreign ready-to-wear enterprises All of this adds to Marrakech’s unique appeal.

Finally, Marrakech has a number of unique festive and cultural attractions. As an illustration of a booming economic humming city, consider the « Palais des Congres » and the majestic Royal Theater. Explore the many themed venues and trendy nightclubs. By visiting Marrakech at night, you can enjoy traditional evenings that emphasize the city’s colorful side.

Marrakech will host the Cop22 in 2016 to help solve climate change concerns, in recognition of its growing international renown and large reception capacity.

Ouarzazate:

Interested in learning more about Ouarzazate? There are a zillion and one way to do this. Firstly, with its numerous adobe Kasbahs, on mountains and plains, green valleys and oases, palm groves, and red or ochre earth settlements. Morocco’s Hollywood is a caramel-colored oasis encircled by the stunning blue of the North African sky.
The city’s symbol is the Taourirt Kasbah, which formerly belonged to the Glaoui. It was built about the middle of the eighteenth century. It is located next to the medina and is shown on the new 50-dirham banknotes.

On the first hand, this Moroccan city is the nerve center of a vast region of southern Morocco. It is in the confluence of the Ouarzazate and Dades river basins (both from the High Atlas). This unites to form the Draa river downstream. Ouarzazate dominates both the southern slopes of the High Atlas and the nearby desert, with a population of 100,000.
Ouarzazate, on the fringes of the kingdom’s deep south, presents as a stunning blend of oasis. Not to mention, Kasbahs, lush valleys, and a vast desert plateau, attracting people from all over the world to appreciate the city’s natural beauty.

On the second hand, they transferred some kasbahs into tourist hotels, while others are historical landmarks.
Ouarzazate is also seeing a rise in tourism and filmmaking. It has an international airport and is accessible by car from Marrakech.
It is one of the most popular Moroccan sites for film filmmakers from all over the world. Aside from the scenery, one of this location’s cinematographic characteristics is the quality of the light, which is magnificent on average for 300 days of the year.

Merzouga:

Undoubtedly, Merzouga is the most beautiful and unforgettable of all Moroccan tourist destinations. A city that seems to float in space, cut off from everything and everyone and enveloped in a wonderful stillness. Merzouga is a Saharan desert region. Crossing the dunes is a thrilling experience that you should not miss if you visit Morocco.

First of all, even though Morocco’s landscapes are far from lonely, the term “Sahara” comes from the Arabic word “loneliness.” There are, on the other hand, places where you can renew your soul and heart. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience to see the sunrise and set amid the dunes. Here you’ll find some of the Sahara’s highest dunes, some of which are over a hundred meters tall. In addition, the Merzouga dunes, also popular as Erg Chebbi are in the southeast of Morocco.

The area is divided into two halves by two streets. Firstly, one that extends from the desert to Rissani and the other where visitors may buy food from the few businesses that remain. You may ride a camel or dromedary through the desert and enjoy the sunrises and sunsets. Not to forget the starry sky at night, all from Merzouga. A journey with a 4 x 4 off-road vehicle is significantly less-riskier since you could wind yourself trekking the dunes and visiting a Berber family when you’re exhausted.

Dunes are a kind of dunes.

The dunes of Merzouga put up a stunning show. When you’re standing in front of this natural beauty, you feel a tangible sensation of powerlessness. The stillness that surrounds you. the wind that caresses your hair, and the sun that warms your body as well as your heart.

Merzouga is a place where you can feel alone in the midst of nowhere while experiencing tremendous feelings that only nature can deliver. The Erg Chebbi, unlike other Saharan locations, is of a thirty-kilometer-long ring of golden dunes. Merzouga’s dunes, which reach heights of over 150 meters and dominate the oasis, are among the world’s highest.

The color of these dunes varies during the day, from pink to gold to red. In reality, hundreds of pink flamingos and storks flock to the Dayt Srji, a little lake that springs from the dunes.

Fes: 

Firstly, for many years, the capital competed with Marrakech, Meknes, and Rabat. Today, the spiritual capital of Morocco is Fes.

Fes’s foundation: 

Fes’s foundation:  It’s also following the Arabs, on the other hand, live in cities, and the Berbers live in rural areas.

Idriss ben Abdellah, the founder of the Idrissides, the first Muslim dynasty in the Maghreb, built Fes in 788.

At a crossroads where many trade routes meet, the site will be:

  •  From the south (Sijilmissa and Mali) to the north (Ports of Tangier and Ceuta).
  • The east (Marrakech) and the west (Algiers) (Tlemcen, Tunis, and further on Cairo and Mecca or Damascus).

 Furthermore, the surroundings are ideal for agricultural production and feature Middle Atlas Mountains construction supplies like stone, clay, and wood.

Families originally from Cordoba (now Spain) and Kairouan (now Tunisia) gradually settle on both sides of the river, becoming two different cities:

On the left bank, the Andalusians’ bank (little tourist today).
The Quaraouiyine mosque was established in 859 by Fatima el Fihriya, a Kairouanese nobleman. It will also be the world’s first Muslim university, maybe even before Bologna in Italy. On the opposite side, there is the Al-Andalus.

With the Almoravides dynasty, the banks are joined in a walled enclosure (1069): the current Medina of Fes.

Under the Almohad rigorists, the city grew and became a major intellectual center.

The Golden Age of Fes:

The start of the new Merinid dynasty marks a big change in the Golden Age of Fes.

In 1276, Abu Youssef decided to leave the Kasbah Nouar in Medina and create Fes la Blanche, la Neuve, or Fes El Jedid in Arabic, a new district farther west.

A palace was built, soldiers (the Mellah) were stationed in the area, and residential areas were quickly fortified. The electricity was not well received by the general public. As a consequence, it was imperative that no risks being taken.

To lessen public resistance:

In Medina, opulent colleges (Medersa) were founded to weaken the religious authority of prominent mosques that challenged the government. Students from throughout the kingdom come to train under the sultan’s generous support. They will mature into grateful and devoted citizens and civic workers.
The discovery of the founder’s burial, Idriss ben Abdellah, provides a solid reason for the Jews of Medina to transfer to the old Mellah castle. 1 stone, 2 blows: Unbelievers will be kept out of the new sacred location. Above all, by keeping the Jews under his authority, the king will split the dominance of Fes’s merchants.

It’s Fes’s golden age, and the Christians’ reconquest of Granada has drawn the Muslims into the city, bringing their know-how with them as a legacy.

Fes will become a mecca for Arab-Andalusian culture, especially in architecture, music, and cuisine.

The decline of Fes:

  • Fes’s decline: Under the Ouattassides (or Wattassides), Fes declined, and the city was destroyed by a severe earthquake in 1522.
  • They choose Marrakech to be the capital of the Saadian dynasty, and the El Badi Palace was built there. Because it is wary of the people, the new monarchy will ring Fes with fortifications.
  • Fes was the capital of the Alaouites for a while. Then it’s over to Meknes for a bit.
    Many independence revolts erupt under the French protectorate. The sultan’s authority to the test: Rabat becomes the new, safer capital.
  • Fes is one of the highlights of our Morocco Unique Desert Tours. You may begin your trip to the Sahara desert or any other place in general from this cultural metropolis.

Casablanca:

Morocco Casablanca arose on the remains of an ancient city famous as Anfa. Towards the end of the seventh century, it was crucial in Moroccan history. It’s also the start of the eighth century. Anfa was a fertile agricultural hinterland with a wealthy metropolis. It was also formerly a fishing port.
Portuguese invasions in the 15th and early 16th centuries destroyed the city. In the 18th century, Sultan Sidi Mohamed Ben Abdellah would reconstruct the city (1757-1790). At the turn of the century, the white city had just a thousand citizens.

The city’s port began to link it to the rest of the world throughout time. It caught the interest of Europeans who were interested in trade. It then established itself as North Africa’s European counterpoint, and it became Morocco’s first export port.

The progress of steam navigation and the rise of the textile industry drive the port’s traffic. It will thereafter become one of the largest wool providers in the Mediterranean area.

In 1862, they created a regular maritime route between Marseille and Casablanca.

Casablanca’s port, the kingdom’s first large modern port, opened in 1912, boosting the city’s and region’s economic activity. As a consequence, it attracted a significant number of investors and employees.

Casablanca is the country’s economic capital.

The destiny of the little city of Dar al Baida, which expanded to become the country’s primary economic hub, metropolis, and financial capital.

The city had a rich phase of developing huge construction sites between 1910 and 1950, including the design of large avenues. The construction of large structures, the establishment of regular shipping lines… The Euro-automobile Rally Casablanca in 1920, it is also the birth of the electric vehicle.

The Allies’ invasion of North Africa in November 1942, especially the American arrival in Casablanca. Operation Torch, which is still vivid in the memory of senior Casablanca is, will be a watershed point in WWII history.

The leaders of the Allied powers (Roosevelt, Churchill, Giraud, and de Gaulle) were in Casablanca two months later for the momentous Anfa conference to establish their post-war strategy.

Between 1953 and 1965, Casablanca was a popular film.

Casablanca is a city that refuses oppression. It was the genesis of the anti-French Protectorate movement. It was a team effort from all Casablanca is. Casablanca the Resistance fighter exploded in flames after Sultan Mohamed V’s deportation by French authorities in 1953-1955. The ladies left their cloister to welcome the return of the Sultan.

During the Green March (1975), a peaceful march, an epic at King Hassan II’s request, to free the Sahara from Spanish dominion, a strong sense of patriotism. With 35,000 volunteers, Casablanca had the largest delegation.

As a consequence of the Protectorate, Operation Torch, and the accompanying German retaliation. The Casablanca had to flee to the countryside.

The Casablancais’ insurrection against Sultan Mohamed V’s deportation. Not to mention the protest riots of 1965 and 1981, which consolidates the population’s solidarity and established a strong dedication to the monarchy, the country, and the city.

The protectorate’s resistance was in Casablanca. The resistance areas were the historic medina, the Habous, Derb Sultan, Derb Al Kabir, and so forth.

The “fidayeen” campaigned to restore the country’s political independence. “Al Fidaa” is Arabic for “Redemption.”

The city’s principal arteries, which carry its name, are a testament to this nationalist endeavor. The Bd Al Fida flows through the neighborhoods of resistance fighters. The whole city is encircled by the Bd of Resistance, which is commanded by Bd Zerktouni (the resistance leader).
