What a wonderful Marrakech desert trip 2 days in Morocco

We have been to Morocco last January 2021, searched and got in touch with many tour companies for a private custom tour and Morocco Tabiarte Tours stood out for its competitive price and speedy responses. Moha was very reliable and easy to communicate with. We booked a 2 day/1 night trip to the Sahara from Marrakech that picked us up from Marrakesh and ended in Marrakesh. They created an itinerary that cuts the long driving hours to get to and from Merzouga with stops that make you truly appreciate the great and changing landscapes on our way to the desert.

Our tour guide & driver during that time was Ahmed. He was also exceptional and answered all our never ending questions about Moroccan life and culture. Furthermore, we even enjoyed the berber music he was playing during our long car rides and still listen to it to this day. Ahmed was a joy to travel with and truly in travel one of the most memorable is the people you meet and encounter. I still remember a moment when we wanted to see the sunset. They brought us to this perfect spot to make sure we would get the moment we wanted. Overall, it was a perfect trip and I highly recommend Morocco Tabiarte Tours!

We had the best 2-day trip to the Sahara desert from Marrakech

I and a friend of mine booked 2 days/ 1 night tour starting from Marrakech and finishing up in Errachidia. Moha had arranged and excelled the plan and our driver Ibrahim was extremely brilliant, with the driving, his patience. On the other hand, the vehicle provided was great, as well as the campsite stay and the desert camel ride were the highlights at Merzouga. Furthermore, the country itself was lovely, and our guide really took it upon himself to give us a memorable experience.
