Remarkable 2-Day Ouarzazate Desert Tour with Guide – Hami

Our 2-day journey from Ouarzazate to Fes through Merzouga was elevated by the outstanding guidance of Hami. His friendliness, attentiveness, and local expertise made the trip memorable. Hami’s in-depth knowledge enriched our experience as we explored the Atlas Mountains and Sahara. The scenic drive showcased varied landscapes, kasbahs, and picturesque gorges. Despite the freezing desert night, our stay in a nomadic tent in Merzouga was perfect for stargazing. I highly recommend both the tour and the exceptional service provided by Hami for an unforgettable desert adventure.
