7 Days desert tour from Tangier to Marrakech Reviews:
Fantastic 7 Days Morocco tour from Tangier to Marrakech
After a late retirement due to some confusion at the hotel reception, we were taken to our destination.
The team on site was welcoming and efficient and even had an iPad with WIFI (in the desert!).
The entire booking and check-in process is very smooth and the security equipment is in good working order.
Zak was attentive and helped my novice GF learn to ride a quad and even drove in tandem with her to make sure she and the rest of the small group (4 of us in total) kept at a reasonable pace and we were able to enjoy the experience to the fullest.
The views were incredible, and the snowy mountains in the background were simply breathtaking.
We stopped for tea and pancakes with a local agent, who even brought one of his children to meet strange people!
The photo team was excellent and not too insistent at the end of the day to offer photos for sale that had no negative value.
Overall an excellent stay I would definitely do it again and I recommend it to anyone of any age to try it.

Places to see on Your 7 Days Desert tour from Tangier to Marrakech
The blue pearl of Chefchaouen
The city of Chefchaouen is one of Morocco’s most beautiful cities, located on the northeastern coast of the country and called the Blue City relative to the blue houses where it is spread.
Morocco’s Chefchaouen has many attractions that make it a destination for many tourists, including waterfalls, natural places, and historical monuments.
The city of Volubilis is located in Morocco and extends along its borders near Mount Zohoun It is located in the west of the city of Fez, which is approximately 60 km2 away. It is close to the city of Meknes by about thirty km2. It is approximately three km2 away from the city of Moulay Idris Zarhoun, and its name belongs to the funeral tree. And there are a lot of civilizations that have passed through this city where the Islamic religion has spread and Islamic countries have done, Romanian civilizations that have remained for long periods of time in the region have also passed and had a major influence on it until the Adressian State came and imposed its control over the country.
There are lots of tourist components that make the city a distinctive tourist place, as it features the largest area and beauty of its construction such as Orphi House, Hercules Business House, Venus House, and can not forget the Palace of Cordienne which is a very important painting in beauty, as well as shops and fences.
Located in the northern Moroccan city of Fez, specifically in the Fez Valley near the Cebu River, the Moroccan city of Fez is Morocco’s second-largest city, with a population of about 1,112,072. Fez was the center of the Jewish community during the previous historical times, in addition to being one of the country’s ancient imperial cities, and it was an important trading center According to the UNESCO classification.
Ifrane is a city in Morocco with a population of approximately 30,000 people, located in the Middle Atlas mountains, about 1,713 meters above sea level. It was founded by the French in 1929 and today is one of the cleanest cities in the world, according to a list made by MBC Times. Ifrane, also known as the ‘small Switzerland’, is characterized by its gabled roofs, and the streets and gardens are taken care of to the maximum detail. Both in summer and winter, this mountain town is an excellent starting point for numerous excursions to its surroundings, especially in the huge Mischliffen.
To be honest, few travelers come to Azrou to visit the city, as it is its cedar forests that have made the area famous and the monkeys that inhabit it, these kinds of monkeys are called Barbary Macaques.
The most famous of these forests is the Grand Cedre Gouraud, the oldest cedar in the region. Unfortunately, he died a few years ago from a plague of processions. A few meters from Cedar Gouraud you will find souvenir stands where you can buy souvenirs from your tour to Fes.
The commercial town of Midelt is located in the high plains bordered by the Middle and High Atlas mountain ranges. Taking in the sun in a temperate climate, Midelt hums with the energy of a modern establishment nestled in scented orchards and wheat fields. Known for its intricate fabrics, the city’s Kasbah-style workshop is home to hundreds of weavers working on traditional Berber rugs and blankets, which are then sold in the market’s crowded stalls with fresh produce like apples, plums, and nuts. Midelt also has traces of its colonial past, evident in buildings such as the residence of the former French governor who now serves as a cultural center, Tarik Ibn Zyad. Not only the architecture, the cuisine is also a beautiful blend of French refinement and earthy Moroccan flavors.
The Ziz Valley
It is curious, that no one gives it the importance it deserves the Ziz Valley when it is a really beautiful valley. The valley of the Ziz, is on the passage of many routes through Morocco that want to reach the desert of Merzouga, most travelers who pass, come from Fes or also, in the opposite direction, from Erfoud to Fes.
Undoubtedly, the valley of Ziz deserves a stop on the road, and on the same road you will find some place where you can stop the vehicle, and enjoy the splendor of the landscape.
Erfoud, Gate Of The Sahara Desert
Erfoud City is characterized by the density of its palms, which covers large areas of its fields, most of which depend on agriculture and livestock husbandry. The marble industry is known for its “dates season”, which takes place on October 27-29 every year.
Sahara Desert Merzouga ( Erg Chebbi ).
When we think of Morocco, of course, we also think of the Sahara. This vast desert is in the south of Morocco. One of the gates of this desert is the city of Merzouga. Merzouga itself is not very special, you certainly do not have to stay here long. However, this is the place from which you visit the desert of Erg Chebbi (part of the Sahara).
At Erg Chebbi you can do all kinds of fun activities. For example, you can spend the night in the desert camp. Or how about a camel ride or exploring the sandy hills in a 4×4?
Visiting the city of Riesani, 35 km from Merzouga and 20 km from Erfoud, is a unique experience, with time travel combined with diving into Morocco’s most prestigious market.
Rissani is the heart of regional trade, thanks to its 1,000-fragrant market. The market space is a place for meeting and exchanging, where drivers (traders) from hundreds of nearby mansions receive their arrival.
On Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday in particular, there is exceptional movement in the market. It is characterized by its clock, and by its inclusion of several distinct sectors, called spheres, i.e. squares. Traders offer their varied commodities, both local and imported, to meet the population’s daily needs.
At the Covered Roads Forum, dates, grain welcome, livestock welcome, foodstuffs on offer, traditional product market, clothing, and household apparel shops, blacksmiths, and carpentry workshops are welcome. The market also has a dedicated place for services such as restaurants serving the region’s delicious authentic (stuffed bread).
It is also worth mentioning the attitude of merchants and visitors, where donkeys and mules are crowded with dozens of wondrous noises.
A tour of this market shows the visitor how important it is for economic activity on the part of the visitor, and it returns memory to a momentous record at its height.
The Todra Gorges are a trench of gigantic rock walls that change color and cross the mountains of the High Atlas, creating a magnificent spectacle.
Many travelers arriving in Morocco visit the Todra Gorges from the south of the ‘Road of the Thousand Kasbahs’. It is an amazing road for trekking lovers.
The mining town of Tinerhir is the base town and starting point to start the visit to the Todra Gorges. It is advisable to book a hotel in Tinerhir in order to make easier the departure and return.
The gorges offer breathtaking views and are easy to walk through. There are many places along the dirt road in good condition, which is in good condition, where to stop for photos along the way.
One of the most spectacular and scenic places in Morocco is the Dadès Valley, a canyon not far from the gorges of Todra, 110 kilometers from Ouarzazate, in the heart of the valley of roses, Also accessible by public transport but ideal to visit by renting a four-wheel drive vehicle.
The Dades Valley, or valley of the thousand Kasbahs, has formed over the last 600 million years through the walls of the High Atlas Mountains thanks to the Dades River and for hundreds of years has been the main road between the desert and the ancient commercial oases of Tifilalt. Its lunar landscapes are torn by numerous oases, palm groves, and beautiful Kasbahs offering the visitor a spectacular contrast between the brown rock formations and the bright colors of almond, fig, walnut, and birch. The Kasbahs scattered throughout this valley is absolutely not to be missed, beautiful ones of Skoura, a wonderful oasis with a wonderful view of the Atlas mountain range, although the natural beauty of the area is the real treasure.
Ouarzazate, Hollywood Of Morocco
Ouarzazate, the city you can see today, was built in 1928 by the French who in these areas had many interests including those related to the famous “foreign legion”, of which the new center represented a real logistic outpost towards the Sahara desert.
This is a modern history, born around an ancient Berber village and its Kasbah, the Kasbah Taourirt, from where the Glaoui – Pasha of Marrakech – controlled the commercial movements of the caravans coming from Timbuktu and the deep Sahara!
Perhaps this is also the reason why Ourzazate, which in Berber language means “quiet place, without noise”, was nicknamed “the door of Africa”!
The fact is that its beautiful sceneries and landscapes, the nearby oasis of palm trees, the wealth of valleys and gorges, could not but attract filmmakers and the world of celluloid, This is where the Atlas film studios – Atlas Corporation Studios – were built in 1983 for the film “Il Gioello del Nilo”.
Ait Benhaddou Kasbah
Ait Benhaddou is a fortified city – or ksar – built along the caravan route between the Sahara Desert and the current city of Marrakech.
Partly dating from the 12th century, and partly from 1740, it is one of the most complete examples of pre-Saharan architecture in the world.
The structure is built with the technique of pisé, that is with earth, straw, and water kneaded to reach a consistency that challenges the centuries; the walls, decorated with geometric patterns, are representative of the Berber culture.
Just outside, the modern village, inhabited by only eight families, is characterized by steep alleys of stones and beaten earth, dark houses to shelter from the sun ending in courtyards with goats and hens and colorful carpets stretched to dry.
To reach the resort of Ouarzazate from Marrakech, the only possibility is to drive along the panoramic road that passes from the pass of Tizi-n-Tichka, crossing the mountains of Atlas, at the height of 2260 meters.
The route is truly extraordinary and fascinating: You go from a green landscape dotted with woods climbing through impressive hairpin bends, up to the pass with green pastures surrounded by imposing mountains and then descend to the slope of Ouarzazate through an arid and desert landscape. The contrast is really impressive.
During the winter months, check in advance the road conditions as the pass may be unusable for snow.
Surrounded by splendid ochre-colored bastions and glorious vestiges and palaces, Marrakech is the capital of the Moroccan South. The intersection of cultures is a city of immense charm. Founded by the Almohads in 1062, it has seen the alternation of noble dynasties, while architects, artisans, and sculptors of all ages have built princely palaces, enchanting mosques, and lush gardens.
