The first day of your 3 days desert tour from Marrakech to Merzouga will depart from your Raid. We’ll stop at some of the area’s most notable tourist attractions on our way to Boumalnes Dades. Our voyage will begin with a crossing of the Atlas Mountains, going through Tizi n’Tchka and on to Ait Ben Haddou. Nonetheless, you’ll take a break to see the breathtaking views of the highlands and Berber villages.

Testimonials:

We went on a three-day, two-night from Marrakech to Merzouga.

We did a lot of research and got a number of quotations, but I'm very delighted we chose Desert Majesty. The additional expense of a private tour in a secure and comfortable 4WD vehicle was well worth it. This vacation covered all meals, and we always ate at fantastic restaurants. We slept at the luxury camp (Merzouga Dunes), which exceeded our expectations; you don't stay in the camp for long, but it's really pleasant, with a private shower and toilet in each tent. We had more food than we could eat, and it continued to arrive at the table long after we had been stuffed.

We spent a lot of time in the vehicle, but it was worth it since there was so much magnificent countryside with stopovers every 1 hour (or whenever you needed).
Our driver/guide Mohamed was the finest part of our vacation; he was such a lovely, giving guy who made our trip so much better. He was extremely knowledgeable about the city and quickly realized that we preferred calmer areas, so he went out of his way to drive us to spots that were less crowded. We had the whole Kasbah Telouet to ourselves, which was a delight.
Mohamed was a great gentleman and professional, as well as a very safe and courteous driver.
I can't say enough good things about this trip; ask for Mohamed, he's the greatest!

The only way to tour Morocco!

First and foremost, a huge thank you to Atman, our driver and guide. Without this guy, many of the highlights of our Moroccan memories would be lost. For starters, he introduced us to cactus fruits, which we had never seen before and immediately fell in love with!!

Desert Majesty took us on a 2-day/1-night excursion from Marrakesh to Zagora. From camel riding to overnight stays at traditional Berber camps (quite clean!! ), viewing the sunrise on a desert morning, to guided trips to Ait Ben Haddou, not to mention meals with lots of alternatives, the program was well planned and executed. We are a touch aggressive in trying to fit so much into two days, but the vehicle (Land Cruiser) is big and comfy enough that you won't mind being in the car for 6-7 hours a day. (They do offer a variety of itineraries to suit various travel styles and appetites, including a 3-day Marrakesh-Merzouga route that eliminates the need to schedule your own transportation between the two historic towns.)

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

My friend and I had a fantastic three-day, two-night tour named "The Valleys of the South." From the included meals and lodging to the best possible exposure to Morocco in the little time we had, everything was taken care of. We slept in Merzouga dunes/hotel rooms on the first night, which were beautiful, and the food we ate was usually excellent. Our driver/tour guide, Khalid, was the loveliest and most patient person I've ever encountered. He was always ready to stop not just for great picture ops and delicious food, but also to take detours to pick up necessities like phone chargers and SIM cards from businesses that didn't take advantage of tourists.

Rashid made our whole trip to Morocco the most memorable we've ever had. When we were tired in the van and wanted to sleep, he was always happy to tour us about Morocco, teach us Arabic terms and riddles, and respect us. Khalid went above and above the call of duty by assuring that after the tour was officially finished, we could safely get at our riad in Marrakech, which was crowded and difficult to navigate (he actually called the owner of the riad and spoke with him in Arabic to ensure that the owner came out to meet us and walk us to the riad). Khalid was the best tour guide we could have asked for, and he was the highlight of our whole trip!

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 3 days desert tour from 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

One of Morocco’s most famous architectural landmarks is Ait Ben Haddou. The 3-day vacation begins with a trip from Marrakech to Merzouga, a desert oasis. Once you leave Marrakech and go across the High Atlas Mountains and Tizi N Tichka, you will be able to see some of the most historic Berber communities. From there, you’ll continue via Telouet and arrive at Ait Ben Haddou. It is inhabited by Berbers. Moreover, the Kasbah draws thousands of visitors each year who come to experience its history and beauty.

To get to Ait Ben Haddou, you must take the bridge to learn about Ait Ben Haddou’s plan. Many of the tour guides will try to educate you on the history of Kasbah.

The colorful stores you may discover in your nation will be liked after you’ve used the bridge.

Ait Ben Haddou is known for his wise men painters, who employ their unique style to decorate the whole Kasbah.

For a panoramic perspective, take the route all the way up to Kasbah and the Ounila River. There will be a lot of security for the tribe when you reach the highest top.

In the eighteenth century, the founder, Ben Haddou, was the leader of the local tribe. At the present, you may still find him at the cemetery behind the town.

A lot of filmmakers choose to use Ait Ben Haddou as part of their films. For example, The Gladiator, Alexander, the Message, and the well-known Game of Thrones.

Ouarzazate:

A 3 days excursion from Marrakech to Merzouga, Ouarzazate’s second destination. The desert port, as it is known, is beginning to exhibit symptoms of the huge Sahara. This lovely village is known for its Atlas studios, which have drawn thousands of tourists over the last 20 years.

The popular Gladiator, Alexander and Cleopatra, and Game of Thrones were all filmed. To be sure, in a scene from the TV show Prison Break, several rounds were fired in the area.

Taourirt’s kasbah, commonly known as the desert labyrinth, may also be observed. It is difficult to visit without a local guide since there are approximately 300 rooms. We urge that you accompany them and see the tribe’s architecture, fudge walls, and unique quarters.

The world’s biggest solar panel, the Noor, is also situated in Ouarzazate. It is owned by a Moroccan solar power firm and costs $9 trillion to build.

Kalaat Mgouna:

The 3 days tour from Marrakesh to the Merzouga desert continues from Ouarzazate to Skoura. A halt may be made depending on the time. We’ll visit Amrhidil’s Kasbah before heading to the Rose Capital. There are many different varieties of roses in the valley. People form Rosewater cooperatives, and the majority of them do so to make a living.

Your guide may make a pit stop at one of the cooperatives, which sell a variety of rose-related items, as well as skincare and other cosmetic products.

Every year, a rose festival is conducted, which attracted 320,000 visitors in 2015.
Taxis are pink to represent how much people love and cherish flowers.

Boumalne Dades:

After seeing Kalaat Megouna and one of the cooperatives, our next destination would be Boumalne Dades. This city is known for the Dade Gorges, and it is a must-see on any Morocco vacation.

Many travelers like to stay here before going on camel rides in the Sahara Desert. The valley is also known for its panoramic vistas from several Riads and Kasbahs.

Tissdrine is a must-see site in Boumalne Dades. You, too, refer to it as “Donkey Road.” The person who offered the route map to the mountain’s summit. It’s also known as the curve stealth road by others.

It is not advised that you go to Monkey Finger’s mountains. Where can you find strange mountains shaped like monkey toes?
