Morocco itinerary 4 days from Fes to Marrakech

My spouse and I just returned from a four-day trip from Fes to Marrakech. We stayed in the desert for one night and in Dades Gorge for two nights. Everything was meticulously arranged. Hiking through the Dades Gorge to meet a Nomad family living in a cave was a highlight for us...it was so calm and real, and there wasn't a single visitor in sight! If you want painless, well-organized trips to remember, I definitely recommend booking via this firm. You will spend a lot of time in the car, so plan accordingly. We sat comfortably in the 4x4 with plenty of room for four baggage.

The only method to go in Morocco!

My buddy planned and invited me to join her on a Moroccan vacation. I'll admit, I was hesitant at first, but the trip turned out to be fantastic.
Hassan, the cheerful and educated host, took care of us from the moment we arrived. He was both our tour guide and our driver. Everything was well prepared. We traveled via Fes, the Sahara desert, the Atlas Mountains, the Dades Gorge, Marrakech, and back to Casablanca. We slept in lovely Riads, learned about history, and were wonderfully taken care of.
If you're thinking about visiting Morocco, this is the firm to go with, and Hassan is the man!

Best 4 days Merzouga Desert tour from Fes to Marrakech

Morocco Sahara Trips provided my wife and me with an unforgettable experience. For the three days, we spent in the highlands and desert, our private guide Hassan was fantastic company.
We began by driving over the high Atlas Mountains to Dades Gorge, where we stayed at the beautiful Dar Rihana Dades hotel. The next day, we went via the Roses Valley, Todra Gorge, and eventually to the desert, where we rode camels and slept in a desert tent. The third day was a long trip back to Marrakech. Throughout the trip, Hassan presented interesting insights and experiences that only a native could relate to, as well as helpful suggestions.

This was our second visit to Morocco, and it did not disappoint; excellent cuisine, magnificent vistas, and really pleasant people.
We want to return for a longer tour the following time.



4 day tour - two female travellers

In October 2021, we were two females traveling alone from the United Kingdom to Morocco. Our reservation was for four days, beginning in Fez and finishing in Marrakech. Morocco Sahara Trips surpassed our expectations, and we would definitely recommend them for the following reasons:

- Booking with Morocco Sahara Trips was a simple procedure; emails were swiftly answered, and Elabdellaoui, with whom we liaised, was eager to discuss several choices for our tour bus and make alterations to fit our needs.

- Our tour guide, Hassan, was fantastic, and it was a pleasure to have him with us. We always felt safe and well-cared for. Ali was incredibly patient and flexible, and he made our visit a memorable one. He was glad to answer our questions and provided us with some helpful suggestions for the remainder of our time in Morocco after our trip ended.

-The automobile was comfy and in good condition, and the scenery along the way was magnificent.

Hassan Ouattou, thank you for an amazing experience.
