Full description
Day 1: Fes - Ifrane - Midelt Zizi Valley - Erg Chebbi Dunes The tour will depart from Fez and head towards the stunning green regions of the Middle Atlas. On the way, you'll get to see some marvellous views of the mountains as well as charming Berber villages. You'll also stop in Immouzer, a little mountain town where you'll have the chance to relax and take in the cool mountain air. Next, continue to Ifrane, sometimes known as ' The Little Moroccan Switzerland.' Admire the tall green trees and beautiful rivers as you relax and enjoy the spectacular calm away from the bustle of the big city.  Stop in a cedar forest where you'll go on tour exploring the forest and perhaps meet some little tricky monkeys. Then, head to Midelt, the city of rocks where you'll get to try a delicious Moroccan Tagine and taste authentic Berber food. Afterwards, start driving through some of the remarkable Middle Atlas villages and watch the mountain landscape gradually morph from rocky formation into speckled sand dunes. The last stop on day one will be Merzouga, the gateway to the Moroccan Sahara. Camels will be waiting for you here. Head out on an inspiring camel trek through the dramatic golden sands and see a beautiful Sahara sunset. You'll spend the night in a cosy desert camp. Gather around the campfire and enjoy a delicious meal before you sleep under the starry night sky. Day 2: Erg Chebbi Dunes - Rissani - Erfoud - Fez Start the day with an early morning camel trek and witness the remarkable beauty of the sunrise in the desert. Next, head back to a deluxe hotel in Merzouga to have breakfast and get some rest. Before heading to Rissani, the old market center, visit its authentic colorful souk and mausoleum of Moulay Ali Cherif, the founder of the Moroccan ruling Alaouite Dynasty. The following stop will be in Erfoud, Morocco's palm date and fossil capital. See the captivating old rocks and learn more about local life. Afterwards, head to Fez and stop in a Berber village on the way and have a delicious local dish for lunch. Once more, you will drive through the stunning landscapes of the Middle Atlas Mountains, before you are dropped back at your accommodation in Fez.

The drive (Fes-Sahara-Fes) was long and felt like a waste of two days and killed the mood. The driver was respectful and cautious; we felt very safe with him. The camping experience in the Sahara was amazing, though did feel a bit rushed. The host and the food was really good and the drumming was fun. The toilet/sink/shower were clean and easily accessible. The hotel where we showered was clean and breakfast was good though limited for me as I am vegan. The most challenging part on the overall tour was the language barrier which made getting a response to our questions (ie. History of areas we passed etc.) difficult and aided in making the drive extra long. My suggestion would be to ensure guides are able to speak conversational languages if you are giving tourist an option to choose the language they speak… I.e if I choose English as my language the guide should speak at a conversational level. Overall great experience and would recommend it.

Esperienza meravigliosa. L'attività è organizzata molto bene. Ma a rendere tutto ancora più perfetto è stato il nostro autista Sufyan, che non si è limitato solo ad accompagnarci, ma anche a spiegarci molte cose; gentile e sempre disponibile ad accontentare tutte le nostre richieste, facendoci anche divertire durante un viaggio che, altrimenti per la sua lunghezza, sarebbe stato sicuramente estenuante. Consiglio vivamente.
