best 4 days desert tour from Marrakech to Merzouga desert
We took a 4-days tour from Marrakech to Merzouga and honestly it was probably one of the best travel experiences we have ever had. I went with my family (my dad, mom, and little brother) and they felt amazingly comfortable during the desert trekking and camping experience. We had Hassan as our guide, we loved having him. He was actually our best guide during our entire stay in Morocco and we missed him so much when we had to go our separate ways. He is very caring and affectionate and is willing to change the route a bit to suit any kind of experience you are looking for. For example, he quickly realized that we love to take pictures and showed us the best places to take them. I have already recommended it to a few friends of mine and I encourage you if you take this trip to ask Hassan!

4 days from Marrakech to Merzouga desert.
We were specifically looking for a Moroccan company, rather than using European intermediaries. It was a very good choice!
Communication with Hassan and then the email was very efficient and helpful.
Said was our guide and he was fantastic from start to finish. He is punctual, responsible, and an excellent driver.
Also, he is a great linguist. He speaks the Berber language (I believe Tashelhait), Arabic, German, French, Spanish, and English. We were impressed with his Spanish, the language in which we toured with him. Above all, his experience of being a Berber and growing up in a nomadic context is central to the way he drives and tours. It was an honor spending time with him. Also to meet 2 other guides Hassan and Moha who were with other tours. Good people!
The hotel accommodation was better than expected and we appreciated Said’s adaptation to the visit to accommodate market days or the volume of other tourists.
The tour includes stops at fossil factories, argan oil cooperatives, spice stalls, clothing stores, and clothing stores (with sticky photos), but there is never pressure to buy anything and they were all really interesting. Please note that the hike through the gorge is only a 15-minute hike on a paved road … not a hike.
We highly recommend Marrakech tour company! If you envisagez l’une de ces excursions, essayez de prendre les plus longues et / ou de construire quelques jours supplémentaires, car elles impliquent beaucoup de conduite, souvent sur des routes très sinueuses, vous aurez donc peut-être moins d’énergie pour sightseeing!
Barakalaufik / Thank you / Shukran!

4 days tour from Marrakech to Merzouga desert
Our 4 day, 3 night trip from Marrakech to Merzouga was well organized and fun. Our driver, Hassan, was punctual and professional and provided us with interesting information about Morocco and the sites. The hotels we have stayed in exceeded my expectations, comfortable and with excellent service.
The highlight of the tour for me was the extra day we were able to spend in the desert which I don’t think 4-day tours from Marrakech to Merzouga can do. Driving through the sand dunes, visiting a nomadic family, and having free time to climb one of the high sand dunes was amazing.
