5 Days Desert Tour from Marrakech to Merzouga

In many ways, the job of a proofreader is easy. We risk very little, but we enjoy a position over those who offer their work and themselves in our judgment. We thrive on negative reviews, which are fun to write and read. Then Hassan, to say that Said is the best person to help you travel through Morocco would be an understatement. If you want to stop and take photos, Said will take you to the best view. If you are hungry, he will guide you to a delicious restaurant at a good price. If he takes you and needs to use the bathroom, Said will stop in a few minutes at the nearest bathroom. If someone tries to scam you, Said will make sure they are protected. If he leaves his luggage in the car, Said will make sure he keeps it until he returns. A perfect combination of accommodating, laid-back, precise, and fun, Said will do whatever it takes to make his journey amazing, even if it means going beyond the call of duty. If you are from Morocco do it with Said.
I will return to Morocco eager to know more.

5 Days Tour From Marrakech To Merzouga

My friends and I had the best 5-day desert tour from Marrakech to Erg Chebbi with Marrakech Tour Company. Our driver, Said, was there to meet us at the ferry and on time throughout the trip; and he was also a very skilled driver. We feel very secure.
Our accommodation was very good except for one night when it had been perfect and the agreed accommodation was available. However, Hassan made up for the next night’s trip, where we were able to stay in a very beautiful, exclusive riad.
We enjoyed the side stops and the tours. The guides spoke English and were informative. I feel like we’ve seen a lot in a limited time.
Thanks to Marrakech Tour Company and Hassan, as well as our driver Said, for making our trip so memorable.

5 Days Tour Marrakech to Merzouga Sahara Desert

Our trip was very well organized and went smoothly. Our initial communications with the Marrakech Tour Company were very informative. We ended up changing our itinerary at the last minute as we had a long flight delay. The team was quick and flexible with us. We were always given a lot of options to do things on a daily basis, but we were responsible for what we wanted to do, which was enjoyable from day to day, as it is difficult to guess how tired he will be. Our visit took place in 5 days from Marrakech to Merzouga. They were all very friendly and hospitable. It was a great trip helped by very helpful staff. Our guide, Hassan, was fluent in English and was also a good driver.

I went with my husband and daughters to Casablanca and Merzouga from Marrakech, on a private tour organized by Hassan’s company and it was fantastic. Our times and preferences were contemplated, the guide Said was extremely friendly, polite, and informed. In the desert we had a great time, Mohamed and Ibrahim took care of everything in the Tents, which were very comfortable. Excellent and abundant food. Recommended as a unique experience. Silvia S.

An unforgettable experience. Hassan, our driver, is a wonderful person. He was attentive to us the 6 days that our tour lasted (Marrakech – Merzouga – Casablanca). He cared that we were comfortable, at ease in his land. From his own nomadic experience, he will tell you stories of his life and that of his friends, you will learn how Morocco works, you will eat like a Berber and you will feel at home. You can stop wherever you want, you just have to ask! It will advise you where to buy things to avoid scams or scams. You will learn their language, and by the light of the stars, you will play and dance Amazigh music in the middle of the desert. We forgot a backpack and jacket in the desert and another driver brought it to us at the airport, without asking us for anything. We are leaving the desert with many memories and friends, that without a doubt, we hope to see again. Said, Hassan, Mohamed, Ali... marrakech to Merzouga desert 6 days

We went to Merzouga on our own in a rental car. An hour before arriving we saw the advertisement for Hassan’s camp on Airbnb and we didn’t hesitate to book with him. He contacted us instantly, he sent us the coordinates of the hotel in Merzouga and he and the boys waited for us to take us where the camels were waiting. From the first moment, they treated us like lifelong friends and made us feel part of the desert. Although we booked in the standard camp, they installed us in the superior one because there was space there, without asking for anything in return. And what a camp, it’s better than a 5-star hotel, with private bathrooms, hot shower, new duvets, and blankets … And the food even better, the best dinner and breakfast of our trip to Morocco. I will recommend Said and the boys to all the friends who want to visit the desert because they are wonderful people who make it an unforgettable experience. We will always carry them in our hearts, and we will surely return. Mama Africaaa !! Our Testimonials Morocco desert tours to Marrakech tour Company, we thank you so much for Everything.

My vacation days

2 years ago they passed me the contact of this boy, I always looked at his page and I never decided on Marrakech. One day I wrote to him and asked him about his tours and Hassan did not hesitate at any time to marvel at his country. As soon as I explained, I told him to prepare a 7-day tour and that was all we talked about until Q arrived. It has been a vacation where curiosity was above me and this wonderful family filled my soul with things and feelings Q was fading, seeing the reality of life and life is very simple, and being happy depends on how you decide to live it. In summary, I found how I say my Sahara family. And in no time I will return to visit the north. See you soon...
Morocco desert tours with HASSAN AND SAID

My boy and I were a little over a week ago making a route through southern Morocco. We have Hassan, who helped us a lot to organize it and be able to visit the best in the days we had and the area we wanted to see, without a doubt, a discovery. We had never been to this incredible country, and it left us totally impressed, even with certain cultural differences, we are very similar. Said accompanied us everywhere, telling us stories of the places and giving us time to enjoy each place, he behaved like a true traveling companion. Then we met Hassan in the desert, who hosted our stay there, concerned that we were comfortable at all times. He gave us a walk that was the icing on the cake in our desert experience, so much so that we can't wait to go back and dedicate every day to the dunes !! Thank you very much for everything, traveling with people like you makes the experience even better !! We will return without a doubt !!
