Best Experience in Morocco Desert ⌈Private Tour⌋

We decided to book this 2 day Sahara Desert tour from Marrakech to fes while we were already in Morocco. In addition to that, we chose Morocco Tabiarte Tours because they had a lot of excellent reviews, and we completely understand why! Moha is a great driver, always enthusiastic to show us places along the way and to stop for pictures or for shops whenever we ask.

On the first day we stopped for breakfast with a very nice Mountain View. Besides, for lunch – Moha knows the best places with typical Moroccan food. Additionally, the experience to see the sunset, sleep and see the sunrise in the desert exceeded our best expectations. Likewise, the camp had everything we needed. We always felt very safe, even in COVID-19 time. Overall, for us, the 3 days desert trip is a must to get to know a bit more of Morocco, and also, we will recommend MTT Agency to friends and family!
