the best 3 days Sahara desert trip

Super trip
We went with friends with the organization Viajes en Marruecos, we loved our stay. Everything was super well organized, the activities, visits, transportation and accommodation were all very good too. We also loved the route thanks to our guide Watik who took us from Marrakech to the desert and back. Watik was very pleasant, with him the trips went faster, especially because he showed us a lot of things on the roads. He is very interesting, nice, funny and very good listener, always ready to help when needed.
We will all keep a great memory of this trip, I recommend this organization and I hope that you will be lucky to have Watik as a guide too!

the best 3 days desert tour from marrakech to merzouga

It was a spectacular trip. They made the route with the directions we gave them based on what we wanted to visit. Since we were picked up at the airport in Marrakech until we left at the airport in Tangier to return, it was all for the better. We want to mention Rachid, the local guide who gave us the guided tour of Marrakech, we loved it and was great with us. Everything was great but I think the desert was what we liked the most even though it was hard to stay alone with this place. Of course we can't forget Barak, our driver during the ten days of the trip, who took us to every place we visited. A driver of 10!
We have recommended you to several people and we hope they come back with the same smile we did.

An experience that is both memorable and different!

An unforgettable and different experience!

This trip was incredible for three reasons: the spectacular and complete nature of the tour, the excellent hospitality of the guides, employees, and drivers, and finally, the people you meet during the experience.

It was perfectly organized as in 5 days we managed to visit many places not only in Marrakech but also in other parts of Morocco. The tour leaders were very attentive and went to extremes to make sure we had a good time, until I returned to the desert dunes at night to get my phone that fell on the sand. It was one of the best experiences!

Fantastic trip to Merzouga from Marrakech

We went on the recommendation of friends, who told you that we would not regret it. And we did.
Excellent from all points of view. Very good organization. We talked to Moha, with him we coordinated everything. They pick you up and take you to the airport. You go to places you never thought you would see in your life. And everything is very good. You have nothing to worry about, since they take care of everything.
