Overview

The 12 Days Desert Trip From Marrakech travels along the coast to the lovely city of Essaouira. Your Merzouga camel trekking route will take you past abandoned sandy beaches, craggy cliff tops, the Argan tree, and actual fishing settlements.

As a constant attendant, you will experience the majestic sea views and the roar of the thunderous Atlantic waves. One of our most knowledgeable and skilled local guides leads the camel trekking tour in the Erg Chebbi dunes (Merzouga), assisted by the camp and kitchen teams. We’ll have a camel convoy transport our luggage.

However, the end of our adventure will include relaxing free time in both Chefchaouen and the legendary city of Marrakech.

3 day trip Fez to Marrakesh Amazing trip! We had Mohammed as a guide and he was so sweet and caring. The advantage of being in a small group is that you get to stop wherever you want to take pictures, you simply need to ask! We are backpackers so we weren’t too sure about the hole organized trip thing but it was perfect as we were in a small group and had a lot of freedom! Thank you so much Mohammed for this amazing time!

"Magical Trip in Morocco" I’m so glad I found this travel agency to be my host in my trip. They provide extraordinary programs, which we wholeheartedly recommend to all who want to see the real Morocco. The food and clothing that this country have are very unique and worth the whole way here, and sleeping in the desert camp under the open sky, where only the sky is our blanket is magical. You can go by riding camels or take a 4×4 they back to the hotel which gives you the choice to choose your best way. The attendants are very kind and provide a high quality service. If you are planning to visit this wonderful country, make sure to rely on this agency and you are guaranteed to have a magical experience. Add this in the end... Thank you Hassan, and see you soon again Let's Visit Morocco

A New Fave Destination “Expectation vs. Reality” the line I want to describe about Morocco.😊 At first, I don’t have high expectation about the country but when I landed on it, I felt “WOW”. I felt like I am in my comfort zone. The travel agency is so accommodating and friendly. They entertain and guide all of us in every destination. So far, All of the places had a really great impact just like ice cream that have so many flavors that in every taste of it, you feel satisfied! It was really a great experience and a new fave destination that I want to go back and where my heart felt at ease. I really recommend this place and the travel agency for a worthy and memorable travel. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
