Best 5 days Desert tour from Marrakech

Well, what to say... it's been great. I'm back with a full battery. We did the 4-day route, with Hassan, to the desert from Marrakech and it exceeded my expectations. We went with complete confidence, we have been taken care of and the good thing is that you go hand in hand with someone who knows and loves his land, so you spend a few days quietly with nothing to do, just let yourself go. The accommodations are very good and the food is delicious. The luxury desert camp and the people who run it great. I recommend it. I was looking forward to spending more days in the desert. For the next trip

De van


Well treated by their staff

Excellent. Hasam contacted us by mobile phone to tell us the time and place of the pick-up in Marrachek.
Ibrahim came to pick us up in a Ford van and we had Ibrahim and the van at our disposal during the 3 day route.
We crossed the atlas and slept in the Dades Valley in a very comfortable hotel, beautiful, not very touristy and run by very nice people.
The next day we went to the desert, and we were in the haimas, the haimas were total luxury, had private shower and toilet. We rode the dromeradu for an hour and watched the sunset and sunrise.
Ibrahim and Hasam were looking after us and we had a very pleasant stay.
