Morocco Itinerary 8 Days Tour from Marrakech reviews
Morocco Itinerary 8 days tour from Marrakech to Casablanca
We took a trip to Morocco last February and did a private tour with Marrakech Tour Company for 8 days tour from Marrakech in Morocco. Hassan was our driver/guide. He loved us and the tour. We found the experience exciting and educational. Hassan answered over a million of our questions and took us to great places to visit, eat and shop. All this at a very reasonable price. We were very happy and will be in contact with the Marrakech Tour Company the next time we visit Morocco (which will hopefully be soon). I highly recommend them.
Perfect 8 Days Morocco Itinerary desert tour from Marrakech
The 8 Days Itineraries in Morocco have practically the same Morocco itinerary. What sets different tour operators apart are their tour guides, accommodation options, vehicles, and communication. Our guide said it was awesome, we loved every place we spent the night, the vehicle was clean and comfortable and the owner was always quick to respond to us via Whatsapp while we were planning the trip and brought many changes.
I really can’t say enough about Said who made our trip amazing !! I legitimately feel like we ended the tour with a new friend. I know we paid him for it, but I never felt like that was what he was doing it for. There are people who belong to the tourism industry and he is part of it. He may or may not attend his wedding someday … The tour was about us and he went out of his way to give us exactly what we wanted. For anyone who asks me for advice on visiting Morocco the first thing I will say is to use Marrakech Tour Company and be sure to ask for Said.
Best Marrakech Tour 8 Days
We have just returned from 8 Days tour Itinerary in Morocco from Marrakech with Marrakech Tour Company and cannot recommend them more highly.
We requested an ambitious program from Marrakech, and spent nights in Dades Valley, Merzouga, Fes, Chefchaouen… (including an unforgettable night in a camp after riding a camel), Ouarzazate, Marrakech, then back to Casablanca.
Our guide Hassan and our driver Said were absolutely wonderful. Their intimate knowledge of lesser-known sites and areas that only locals visit made our trip even more special. It was wonderful to see Morocco through their eyes, and we made so many lifelong memories.
We could never have planned such a long trip on our own, the riads and the different places we stayed in were all beautiful and full of Moroccan character.
Can’t wait to come back and will be using Marrakech Tour Company again for my next visit.
Places to see in Your Morocco 8 Days Tour from Marrakech
The Ksar of Ait Benhaddou is located at the foot of the Atlas Mountains, a natural gateway to the desert, 30 km northwest of the Moroccan city of Ouarzazate. Ksar (plural Ksour) is the term used for a fortified tribal village, and Ait-Ben-Haddou is an excellent example of one of these villages, dating from the 17th century and built entirely of local biological materials, with rich red clay. It is located on a small hill on the left bank of the Ounila River, overlooking the valley that once served as the main trade route through the Atlas Mountains to Marrakech and beyond.
The City of Boumalne Dades
For many reasons, Boumalne Dades is one of the famous attractions to visit during your 8 Days Tour in Morocco Itinerary from Marrakech.
It is believed that the name Boumalne Dades comes from Bou l’Male, which means a place of business and commerce, especially cattle. The word Dades comes from the story of a nomad who arrived in Boumalne. The story tells that he was hungry, but could not eat unless he paid a fine, although the region was known for its wealth of vegetables and fruits. However, after a while, a person came to him and told him “From Tech,” which means “here you can eat.” Later, the expression became Dades.
Deep in the rocky atlas mountains on one of the roads leading to the Sahara desert from Marrakech, lies the spectacular scene of the Todra gorge (locally called the Toudgha gorge)a natural oasis created by the river Todra as it makes its way through the limestone for centuries. The prehistoric accelerator resembles almost valley walls up to 400 meters (taller than the Empire State Building in New York).
One of the best attractions in Morocco for visitors, it is a paradise for photography enthusiasts, mountaineers, cyclists, and hikers. The strangulation was also shown on the American television program Impossible Journey and on the 2012 CTS Cadillac announcement.
It is a great place to break the journey between Marrakech and the desert during the night or 8 Days in Morocco Itinerary but gives way to a longer exploration.
The biggest attraction of Merzouga is the incomparable desert experience it offers. Since it is located on the banks of the Sahara, Merzouga is the ideal village to stay in while enjoying the beauty and nature of the desert. in this 8 Days Morocco tour Itinerary from Marrakech, you will discover Merzouga sand dunes.
