    Tour in Morocco, Excursion to Fes and Sahara Desert

    Day 1:Fes - Ifrane - Azrou - Midelt - Errachidia - Valle de Ziz - Erfoud – Merzouga

    Our adventure begins in the vibrant city of Fes. After breakfast, we’ll set off towards the Middle Atlas Mountains, a region nicknamed “the Switzerland of Morocco” for its cool climate and alpine charm. Keep your eyes peeled for Barbary Macaques, an endangered primate species that calls this region home. As we wind our way through the mountains, marvel at the dramatic Ziz Valley and its gorges. We’ll also make a stop in Midelt, a city famous for its delicious apples, before continuing to Erfoud, a town known for its fascinating fossils. Finally, our journey culminates in Merzouga, a gateway to an unforgettable desert experience. Prepare to be awestruck as you embark on a camel caravan ride across the majestic dunes. Witness the breathtaking desert sunset, a scene painted in fiery hues that will leave you speechless. As twilight paints the sky, gather around a crackling campfire and immerse yourself in the magic of the desert. Enjoy a taste of local traditions, listen to captivating stories under a blanket of stars, and create memories that will last a lifetime.

    Day 2:Merzouga - Rissani – Erfoud - Todra Gorges - Dades Gorges

    After witnessing the awe-inspiring desert sunrise, we’ll hop back into our 4×4 jeeps and delve deeper into Morocco’s rich tapestry. Our first stop is Rissani, steeped in history as the former imperial city and birthplace of the Alaoui dynasty. Here, you’ll have the chance to explore the bustling souk, a vibrant marketplace where villagers from surrounding areas gather to trade everything from fresh produce and colorful fabrics to aromatic spices, a specialty of Rissani. Next, we journey onwards to Erfoud, a town where prehistoric times come alive! Fossil treasures unearthed from the surrounding areas are transformed into stunning works of art, from furniture and home decor to intricate jewelry like bracelets, keychains, and necklaces. Keep your eyes peeled for unique souvenirs to commemorate your trip! Our adventure continues towards Tinghir, the gateway to the awe-inspiring Todra Gorges. Towering cliffs, a haven for climbers and trekkers, will leave you speechless. Take in the dramatic scenery and perhaps even dip your toes in the cool waters of the Todra River. Finally, we reach Boumalne Dades, a charming town nestled amidst the Dades Valley. After a full day of exploration, unwind and relax at our comfortable hotel, ready for the next leg of your Moroccan adventure.

    Day 3:Boumalne Dades - K'laat M'Gouna - Ouarzazate - Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou - High Atlas - Marrakech

    After exploring the majestic Dades Gorges, we’ll embark on a captivating journey. Our next stop is the captivating Rose Valley in Kelaat Mgouna. Here, we’ll have the opportunity to explore a “house of roses,” where delicate rose petals are transformed into luxurious perfumes, lotions, and oils. Immerse yourself in the fragrant world of roses and discover the secrets behind these exquisite products, perfect souvenirs to remember your Moroccan adventure! Continuing our journey, we’ll stop at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ait Benhaddou before reaching Ouarzazate. This awe-inspiring fortified ksar (a traditional earthen village) is still inhabited, with Berber families living within its ancient walls and surrounding villages. Step back in time as you wander through the narrow alleys, imagining the lives of those who have called this place home for centuries. Keep your eyes peeled – you might even recognize the setting from famous Hollywood movies like Gladiator, Game of Thrones, and Prince of Persia! (Lunch will be enjoyed here amidst the historical backdrop.) While our tour won’t be visiting the Ouarzazate solar energy project itself, it’s worth mentioning that this impressive initiative is harnessing clean, renewable energy to power Morocco’s future. By 2018, it’s estimated that the project will provide up to 1.1 million Moroccans with a sustainable energy source. Finally, we’ll set off towards the vibrant city of Marrakech. The afternoon is yours to explore at your own pace. Wander through the labyrinthine alleys of the medina, lose yourself in the vibrant souks, or simply relax in a traditional riad courtyard, soaking up the unique atmosphere. Marrakech is yours to discover!

    Favoloso Fantastica avventura di 8 giorno da Meknes a Marrakech passando per Fez, deserto e Atlas. Organizzazione fantastica, il driver Mohamed è stato una meravigliosa guida, pause pranzo in ristoranti non turistici fantastici! Consiglio a tutti colore che vogliono passare un settimana rilassante e allo stesso tempo visitare luoghi ancora genuini e panorami mozzafiato. Grazie ancora!

    Great excursion, great guide! We went on a 5-day excursion with Marrakech Expedition, from Marrakech to the desert near Merzouga and back. Everything was very well planned, we were taken to the main sites and places, all the hotels they booked for us were excellent. Our guide, Mohammed was really great, an expert driver and a great guy to talk to, we really enjoyed the time we spent travelling with him. Highly recommended!

    Great! We travelled with our two little kids, 3 and 6, on a 8 day trip through Morocco using the driver service of Marrakesh Expeditions. Omar, our driver, was excellent! Very kind and patient with the kids, suggesting interesting places to visit on the way to our planned destinations and helping us with whatever we needed. An unforgettable experience for us, the kids can’t wait to visit this beautiful country & people again. Thanks a lot!

    Marocco on the road Contattato Ali via mail qualche mese prima abbiamo concordato il viaggio con partenza e rientro da e a Marrakech. L'agenzia è stata assolutamente all'altezza delle nostre aspettative e ci ha consentito un viaggio piacevole e senza problemi. Alla nostra guida, il giovane simpatico Mohamed, il nostra più grande grazie per essere stato un compagno di viaggio attento ai nostri bisogni e rispettoso dei nostri desideri. A lui il nostro augurio di crescere, studiare anche l'italiano e diventare sempre più bravo!

    Amazingly enjoyable trip through Morocco Wonderful trip organised for us which afforded us understanding & views of Moroccan landscapes, country, culture and people. Excellent accommodations chosen in amazing Rhiads for us. Excellent restaurants for all meals were organised for us. Excellent cultural stops and shopping opportunities. Excellent guides very knowledgable, local and with good English. Driver Moha was excellent driver & kept us on time and enjoying everything at the same time. Superb custom trip in an incredibly interesting country. The only thing at all negative was the first night’s accommodation in Casablanca (very late arrival through incredible traffic after our flight, no dinner available, apparently nowhere to purchase bottled water except from the waiter, and room was very noisy on main roads with hotel staff unhelpful. ) Would recommend this company and their tour planning. Had an amazing trip. Loved it.
