An amazing morocco desert tour from fes

My friend and I visited Marrakech as part of a short trip to Morocco and as our first time in Morocco we weren’t sure what to expect. On the other hand, we decided to book with this company and arrange 2 days 1 night tour from fes to the Sahara (Merzouga) then to Marrakech. Moreover, our driver was Ibrahim, he was amazing, We had no troubles getting from place to place on time, and he would listen to our requests at any time.

The highlight of the tour obviously was the sand dunes at Merzouga where we had our sunset, camel ride and spent the night at the luxury oasis camp where we had an amazing view of the stars. Overall, I highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to see sights around Morocco and experience the Sahara desert firs hand, and I can’t recommend Ibrahim enough!

Best morocco sahara trip

I booked a 2-day private desert tour from fes to marrakech with morocco tabiarte tours. After reading the fantastic reviews here and sure did not disappoint. Since it was an incredible adventure discovering different sites with our knowledgeable guide Moha who was always kind and considerate, helping us in any way we needed.

The dinner was in a communal large tent, with warm delicious soup, Moroccan traditional salad, and Tagine. The dessert was also something to die for, we enjoyed every bit of it. By 9-10 pm, there was welcoming music, bonfire, and celebration of the tourists’ arrival. The traditional Berber music, dancing, and drumming under the stars was amazing. If you have a chance to see Moha drum, you should. He is an excellent drummer, enthusiastic and with much musical talent.

Overall, this was probably one of the best adventure we had ever had as a family, It was exotic, and the experience was unparalleled. Last but not least, I would again recommend having the tour guide like Moha with you if you are traveling, especially from city to city. Moha’s guided tour was well-planned, thoughtful and organized, and most importantly, Moha was very personable and helpful. It was definitely a really fun trip, and thank you Moha for this unforgettable memory! Read More Morocco tour’s reviews
