The best 3 days tour from Marrakech to Fes

The three days Sahara desert excursions from Marrakech to Fes really surpassed our expectations!!! Hassan, our driver, and host, was fantastic. Not only was he safe, but he was also a Moroccan native who was kind, knowledgable, respectful, and attentive. He was instrumental in making our vacation what it was, and we're delighted to have met him. We made many stops along the trip, and the SUV was comfortable for the entire journey. Because it was only my new husband and me on the journey, we were able to stop wherever and whenever we pleased, and Hassan knew all the best sites to visit. Being with a native who spoke the language was really beneficial.

He surprised us with a cake for our recent marriage at dinner at the first hotel, and we had a great time with the natives performing music for everyone at supper. It was one of our trip's highlights. The Sahara was breathtaking, and I was grateful to Hassan for capturing so many images of us. We stayed at the deluxe camp, which was just fantastic. Glamping at its most luxurious. This group comes highly recommended. It isn't the most inexpensive, but you get what you pay for, and it was well worth the money.

The only way to tour Morocco!

My buddy planned a Moroccan excursion for me and invited me. I was a little hesitant at first, but the trip turned out to be fantastic.
Hassan, the cheerful and informed host, looked after us from the moment we arrived. He was both our driver and tour guide. Everything had been well planned. We traveled to Fes from Marrakech, the Sahara desert, the Atlas Mountains, the Dades Gorge, Marrakech, and Casablanca. We stayed in lovely Riads, learned about history, and were well looked after.
This firm is the greatest, and Hassan is the guy if anybody is considering a trip to Morocco.

3 Day Desert Tour with Mbark was one of the best experiences of our lives!

The three days private desert tour from Marrakech to Fes was one of the most unforgettable experiences of our life! Mbark, our guide, ensured that everything went well. He is really knowledgeable and kind, and he patiently answered all of our concerns. We learned a lot about the culture and history while having a great time!

The five-star desert camp and camel ride were incredible! It's very lovely. The food was excellent. The atmosphere and live music are very enjoyable.

The first night, we slept at a beautiful hotel. We proceeded to a view pool, where I received a message. The supper and breakfast buffets were both outstanding.

The excursion is highly recommended. Mbark is a fantastic driver and tour leader!

What a fantastic 3-day desert adventure with our guide Hassan!

Morocco Desert Tour provided my wife and me with an unforgettable experience. For the 3 days desert trip from Marrakech to Fes, we spent in the highlands and desert, our private guide Hassan was fantastic company.
We began by driving over the high Atlas Mountains to the Dades Gorge, where we slept at the beautiful Dar Rihana Dades hotel. We traveled via the Roses Valley, Todra Gorge, and ultimately to the desert, where we rode a camel and slept in a desert tent the following day. The third day was a long trip back to Marrakech. Throughout the trip, Hassan shared interesting facts and experiences that only a native could tell, as well as helpful hints.
This was our second trip to Morocco, and it did not disappoint; incredible cuisine, breathtaking scenery, and wonderfully kind people.
Next time, I want to return for an even longer journey.

Highlights overview:

The 4 day desert tour from Fes to Marrakech to Merzouga is full with stunning sights to visit. As a result, we’d like to provide you with an outline of what you’ll see and experience during your trip with us.

Ait Benhaddou

Ait Benhaddou is often regarded as Morocco’s most intriguing Ksar. Old Palace of Glaoua is another name for it. This cluster of clay structures is enclosed by high walls in the High Atlas range. Between both the 18th and 19th centuries, the Glaoua tribe erected their Kasbah, where they used to dwell. Every tribe has a leader, and Ben Haddou was theirs. At the top of the Kasbahs, he used to remain in his own large chamber. Ben Haddou was a rich leader who had the assistance of the French government, according to common opinion.

Thousands of people visit the Kasbah each year from Marrakech to see the desert. The historic Kasbah’s breathtaking vistas encouraged archaeologists to discover more about its past. They further suggest that it was built during the rule of Thami El Glaoui, the Sultan of Marrakech, in the eleventh century.

The Kasbah is now more accessible thanks to the Tizi N Tichka p31 road.

You will drive from Marrakech to Ait Ben Haddou on one of our organized tours, where your expert guide will explain its history. Taking the stairs will get you to the summit. You’ll be astounded by how the artists depict the Kasbah using tea and sugar, followed by fire. Climb to the peak for some panoramic views from there.

Not to mention the fact that Ait Ben Haddou has lately taken on the appearance of a movie studio. At the Ksar of Ait Ben Haddou, scenes from The Gladiator, Alexander, The Bible, and other well-known films and television series were shot.

Ouarzazate:

You will drive from Marrakech to Ait Ben Haddou, where your professional guide will teach you about its history, on one of the tours we offer. Taking the stairs will get you to the summit. You’ll be astounded by how the artists depict the Kasbah using tea and sugar, followed by fire. Climb to the peak for some panoramic views from there.

Not to mention the fact that Ait Ben Haddou has lately taken on the appearance of a movie studio. At the Ksar of Ait Ben Haddou, scenes from The Gladiator, Alexander, The Bible, and other well-known films and television series were shot.

The magnificent Cla hotel is just across from the Atlas Studios. The hotel has a classic style, and tourists are welcome to stay and explore the studio’s many regions.

The Kasbah of Taourirt, often known as the Ouarzazate Maze, is another popular sight in Ouarzazate. Also, it includes roughly 300 chambers. It is certainly preferable to engage a local guide to find this secret location. It belongs to the Thami El Glaoui and is now extremely well kept and significant.

Ifrane:

If you wish to visit both Switzerland and Morocco at the same time, Ifrane is an excellent destination to go to. It is the cleanest city in Morocco and the tenth cleanest city in the world with European architecture. As a consequence, it is known as “Little Switzerland” in Morocco. Ifrane is the coldest city in Morocco, with average winter temperatures of -23°C=-9.4°F. That is to say, it snows a lot there, and as a consequence, many Moroccans go there to snowboard.

The Atlas Lion monument, carved by a German prisoner during the French occupation in 1912, is a landmark in Ifrane. Ifrane is known for having one of Morocco’s largest and most expensive institutions, as well as one of the king’s palaces.

Azrou:

The forest of Azrou, situated near the city of Ifrane, is known for its towering cedar trees that may exceed 25 meters in height. They’re also found in the Himalayan and Mediterranean mountains. Barbary apes, one of the world’s most unique species, live in these woods. That is the maggots that have been identified as Old World species monkeys. Not to mention that they are mostly found in Algeria’s Atlas Mountains and Morocco’s Atlas Mountains, with a small amount in Gibraltar.

We come to feed the monkeys, who usually come in families rather than in groups. In fact, they dislike socializing with other families.

Errachidia:

After crossing the Atlas Mountains, Errachidia is the first hamlet that acts as the entrance to the Sahara desert. It is in the Daraa Tafilalet region, and its original name was Imtghern, and it was formerly known as Ksar Souk. Following that, it was given the name Errachidia by King Mohamed V’s brother, Prince Moulay Rachid. Because of its closeness to Algeria, which has political problems, Errachidia is home to the bulk of military outposts.

Hassan Addakhil Dam: Errachidia is famous for the Hassan Addakhil Dam, which supplies water to the nearby towns of Errachidia, Erfoud, and Merzouga. Because everything pours into the dam when it rains in the highlands, the Alaouite family had the foresight to build it in the Atlas Highlands in 1968.

The Ziz Valley, also called as the Ziz river, is a large river that flows 282 kilometers through the Sahara desert from Errachidia to Algeria. The river’s only remarkable feature is a 30-kilometer stretch where many date palm palms may be seen. Many people in this region have farms, and they generally grow palm trees since the arid weather and soil are conducive to their growth. When we arrive to Ait Chaker, we are greeted with a beautiful view of the river, replete with its majestic and massive palm palms.

Erfoud:

Erfoud, sometimes known as Arfoud, is a city in southeast Morocco near the Erg Chebbi sand dunes. Its name might be explained in one of two ways. To begin, many people think the name comes from a Berber shrub called Ounfoud, which grows in the Ziz River, which runs east of Erfoud. Others say the name comes from the Berber word “Ar Afoud,” which means “to the knee,” and alludes to a depth measurement done by two Berbers crossing the river.

Erfoud is well-known for its three-day international festival honoring the fruits of the date palm, which takes place in October. Many visitors travel from all over the globe to celebrate and export dates, as well as to enjoy the city’s center square’s concerts, music, and theatrical acts.

In geology, Erfoud is recognized as the city of mineral fossils. In the nearby mountains, you may find goniatites, orthoceras, trilobites, crinoids (Scyphocrinites Elegans), and corals, for example. Of course, we can take you to one of the museums to observe how those fossils are manufactured, and if you want to purchase one, we can take you there as well.

Merzouga:

Camel trekking is the finest thing to do in the world, according to TripAdvisor. Merzouga is therefore the pinnacle of not just our four-day trek from Fes to Marrakech, but also of all of our Morocco desert expeditions.

Merzouga is about 50 kilometers (30 miles) from Algerian territory. It’s in the province of Errachidia, in the Daraa Tadilalet region. Merzouga is also derived from the surname “Merzouq” of an Arab clan. Because of the Erg Chebbi sand dunes, which attract a huge number of people each year, some say that Merzouga means “wealthy.”

The terms Hassi Labied, Takojt, or Khamlia, which refer to the nearby villages, may be heard. You may also be familiar with Lala Merzouga, Erg Chebbi’s greatest sand dune. Merzouga’s principal source of wealth is tourism, therefore they work hard to keep it clean and safe.

Merzouga is a town that is home to not just Berbers, but also Arabs and Gnawas. Despite its many tribes and backgrounds, the sprawling hamlet maintains a serene atmosphere and is beloved by many visitors for the friendliness of its residents. Let’s take a look at some of Merzouga’s best attractions:
