3 days desert tour from Marrakech to Fes with Hassan

My wife and I had an amazing 3-day private tour from Marrakech to Fes with our guide Hassan. Even though the car journeys were long, the van was very comfortable and Hassan made sure we were looked after throughout the journey. At each restaurant we stopped by, our guide made sure he was aware of any food allergies we had. The whole trip was for us.
Not only was he hospitable, but he was very knowledgeable about everything every step of the way, letting us know about the history/culture/geography / etc. Everywhere we were The guy is a walking Wikipedia and there was no question he couldn’t answer. He made sure we had photos of all of the most scenic spots and knew where to get off the beaten path to avoid the crowds.

A true 3-day Marrakech to Fes desert tour experience!

We decided to make the trip from Fes to Marrakech, stopping in the Boumaln Dades for 1 night with another night in the desert camp and the last one in Fes. We were surprised by a true Marrakech to Fes Private 3-Day Desert Tour and Camel Trek experience with strong winds at night, but even with the wind, it is worth it because it is truly unique. Our car rides for the day and our driver Said were definitely the highlight of the trip. It is amazing to see the Moroccan countryside and Said was very knowledgeable and spoke a lot about the regions we traveled through and our proven culture. I recommend that you take a 3 Days Sahara Desert Tour from Marrakech to Fes on your visit to Morocco that allows you to see the countryside along the way!
