8 days Fes to Marrakech and Merzouga desert
After about 450 km of traveling with Said (and Hassan at the wheel) through Morocco, we can say that we enjoyed every moment of this exciting journey! The 8-day desert tour from Fez to Marrakech that Discover Morocco Trips composed us took us to Fez, before spending a night in the desert, enjoying a morning in Rissani on the way to the Dades Valley and with an incredible last day driving through the High Atlas mountains in Marrakech. As much as we remember the stunning scenery and colorful markets, we really enjoyed our interesting conversations with Said, joked, and laughed a lot; we feel so safe and comfortable traveling with these 2 young men who are truly great ambassadors for their country. Rarely have we learned so much in such a short time about a country and in such an enjoyable way! And the Tajine breakfasts we share along the way will be remembered – until we return to this fascinating land. And when we do, rest assured that Hassan and Said de Marrakech Tour Company will be our partners again. Shokran for making our trip to Morocco so special and memorable in the best way possible! First, we cannot say enough incredible things about Hassan. He was really friendly and had tons of local knowledge and history to share along the tour. This experience was easily the highlight of our trip, we felt like we saw a lot of Morocco. Seeing, the dunes, riding the camels, taking the tour around the desert and we know some nomads people, Gnawa Khamliya which Berber Music, it was an incredible memories that no one should miss out on.
We even had the perfect timing of using Hassan for our one-day tour to Chefchaouen, which was another highlight worth considering from Fes. The company was fast to reply, accommodating, and friendly. Would highly recommend this tour and company to anyone coming to visit Morocco.

Fes to Marrakech via Merzouga desert 8-days
I wanted a safe experience for an adventurous middle-aged woman traveling alone. Traveling in a group or in a combination is not really what I like, as I don’t like to adapt to the schedules of other people whose interests are not the same as mine. My route was well planned, but it also allowed enough flexibility for spontaneous changes. Mubarek, my guide, was professional and treated me like a rock star. I felt safe walking the back roads and also seeing the sights of the most famous cities in Morocco. I would recommend this company to anyone.
