Soon afterwards, enjoy a view of the palm trees and roses, a peaceful and sweet view. Progressivly, the scene will change to become more of a desert setting and it will be the start of a 2-hour ride into the vastness of the sand to reach the heart of the Moroccan desert. Then, you will be able to enjoy the Berber night and the exceptional beauty of the sunset over the dunes. In the morning, you will admire the wonderful sunrise and have a typical breakfast. Day 1: Marrakech - Ait-Ben-Haddou - Ouarzazate - Gorges Dades The tour will begin at 07:00 from Marrakech.

Unforgettable

Since we were picked up at the hotel, the Marrakesh Travel Services tour fulfilled expectations as it was a private tour and our assigned driver was very funny and responsible. We had guide in English and Spanish in all our visits and highlighted Ali's work in the Toudgha Valley. The dromedary transfer to the Berber camp, sleep in it and appreciate the colors of the desert was undoubtedly a unique experience. The only point to improve is the Tinghir hotel (the first night) as it is far from being a 4 star hotel as indicated. Except for that detail, I recommend this tour 100% that makes the stay in Morocco an unforgettable adventure.

We really enjoyed this private tour to the gates of the Sahara desert! This tour takes you back in Berber history, shows you sets of famous movie sets like Game of Thrones or Gladiator and lets you slip in to the role of a nomad on the back of a Dromedar. We really want to point out, that our driver Mohamed Ben Haddou was such an enrichment to this tour – besides his very safe driving skills he shows a lot of humor and taught us a lot about the traditions of the Berber people. We really enjoyed the trip, the talks and the new friend we gained. Mashallah and shkran!

Great experience! Varied, interesting, great driver! Mohammed was much more than just a driver. We were really taken care of. The desert trip was beautiful and crazy cold. Take warm clothes with you in December!
