These fascinating trees play a vital role in the region’s ecosystem. Next, we’ll arrive in Taliouine, a town draped in the golden hues of saffron, often referred to as “red gold” due to its precious nature. Here, we’ll have the privilege of visiting a saffron cooperative and gaining insights into the intricate process of harvesting and cultivating this prized spice.

After browsing the captivating displays, we’ll savor a delicious lunch at a local spot, allowing you to experience authentic Moroccan flavors. With full bellies, we’ll set off towards Agdez in the afternoon. Our drive takes us past the awe-inspiring Anti-Atlas Mountains, a region rich in mineral deposits.

    Day 2:Agdez – Draa Valley – Tansikht – Nkob - Tazarine - Alnif - Rissani - Merzouga

    After breakfast in Agdez, we’ll embark on a journey towards Tazarine, a town famous for its vibrant Henna festival. Keep your eyes peeled for colorful hand-painted henna designs and a festive atmosphere, if your visit coincides with the festival! Our route takes us through the magnificent Draa Valley, a fertile oasis boasting one of Morocco’s longest palm groves and a life-giving river. This verdant haven is also renowned for its delicious dates, some of the best in Morocco. As we wind our way through the valley, we’ll pass by traditional Berber villages, each with its unique character. Prepare to be mesmerized by the stark beauty of the desert landscape as we traverse vast stretches of flat land on our way to Alnif. This town is a haven for date lovers and fossil enthusiasts. Enjoy a delicious lunch here before venturing onwards. In the afternoon, we’ll set off towards Rissani, steeped in history as the former imperial city and birthplace of the Alaoui dynasty. After a short drive, we’ll arrive at the awe-inspiring Erg Chebbi dunes. Here, a unique adventure awaits – a one-hour camel ride taking you deep into the heart of the golden sands. As the sun dips below the horizon, casting long shadows across the dunes, we’ll arrive at our comfortable desert camp.

Continuing our exploration, we’ll traverse charming Berber villages, each with its unique traditions and way of life. Keep your camera ready to capture the essence of these authentic communities. Next, prepare to be awestruck by the majestic Todra Gorges. Often referred to as Morocco’s Grand Canyon, towering pink-grey rock walls rise dramatically on either side, their hues shifting throughout the day with the changing light. This natural wonder is a haven for climbers and trekkers, and a sight that will leave you speechless. We’ll retrace our steps back to Boumalne Dades, and then take a scenic drive alongside the Dades Valley, a captivating landscape sculpted by nature. As the afternoon unfolds, we’ll arrive in Kelaat Mgouna, renowned for its rose cultivation. Here, we’ll have the opportunity to visit a “house of roses” and discover the process of transforming delicate rose petals into luxurious perfumes, lotions, and oils. These fragrant products are a perfect way to bring a touch of Morocco back home. Skoura, our next stop, boasts a rich history. Here, we’ll visit the captivating Amredhyle Kasbah, a magnificent example of Moroccan architecture.

We’ll begin by exploring the imposing Kasbah of Taourirt, a fortified castle that whispers tales of Morocco’s rich past. Next, we’ll step into the world of movie magic with a visit to the Ouarzazate Cinema Studios. This is where blockbuster films like Gladiator, Game of Thrones, and Prince of Persia were brought to life!

This fortified ksar (a traditional earthen village) is still inhabited, with Berber families living within its ancient walls and surrounding villages. Wander through the narrow alleys and soak up the unique atmosphere of this historical gem. Keep your eyes peeled – you might even recognize the setting from famous Hollywood movies! After stepping back in time at Ait Benhaddou, we’ll bid farewell to Ouarzazate and set off towards the vibrant coastal city of Agadir.

    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.
