If your flight is not in the morning, we start our guided tour of Fes at 8/9 am with an official guide to discover the UNESCO protected old Medina. The best way to explore a city that has up to 9,000 roads and alleyways is with an expert. The old Medina of Fes is declared a World Heritage of Humanity in 1981 and considered the oldest and most beautiful in Morocco. The doors lead us to a tangle of narrow streets and alleyways around the mosque Karaouine. Its university is the oldest in the world.

After walking inside the Medina we take the car and drive outside the Medina to explore the unique seven doors of Fez, Royal Palace, then the Andalusian architecture in the Jewish quarter, then our next step will be in the old fort to admire the Panoramic view of the 9400 street of the Medina, visit the pottery and tiles factor. Thus, we transfer you to the airport, train station or your accommodation if you still have time in Fes.

Great times!!!!

We visited Morocco in June 2013 and decided to do the camel trekking to experience the desert. Idir, the driver and tour guide picked us up at our Riad in Marrakesh in the morning. We had a nice drive over the High Atlas Mountains, with several stops for taking pictures, breaks, lunch. There were many beautiful mountains, valleys, and canyons along the way, but the highlight of our trip was the night spent in the desert.

We arrived in Merzouga early evening. There, we met Ismail, who accompanied us into the desert. He was such a great guide and host! And so much fun!!!
After riding the camels to the desert camp, watching the sunset, and taking some wonderful pictures, it was time for dinner, music, and dances. Ismail thought our daughter how to play the African drums and then he took us on the top of a dune to watch the amazing many of them, so close and so beautiful; we did not want the night to end, but eventually,,,


Far exceeded expectations!

This is an amazing tour with camel excursion morocco, we got delicious and more than enough food, we followed a nice camel man to the tent before sunset, we danced with the Berber music and try to learn howà to play the drums, we slept in the soft land cover with a blanket under the starry night, we wake up by the sunrise and return back to the hotel.

We have all these fantasies with a very good price also, but most important is the friendly and nice staffs 🙂

Camel excursion morocco 的沙漠團真的很讚!日出日落和星夜是今次的重點,但因為阿拉伯朋友和他們的駱駝的友善,好吃和超份量的食物,使整個旅程更加難忘。:-)



Fes Desert trip 4 days

My daughter and I traveled through France, Spain, Morocco, and Portugal, and the camel trek into the Sahara was definitely the highlight of our trip. I chose Camel Excursions based on reviews and they did not disappoint. From the initial contact to the very end, Ismael was very prompt in returning emails and providing information, even up to the night before our trip! Ismael also recommended riads in Fez and in Marrakech which were absolutely wonderful.

Youssef was our private guide and he was so awesome. He is very intelligent about the history and culture of his country and taught us a lot. He made sure we had whatever we needed, including my daughter's vegetarian diet. We took the 4 days trip from Fez and it was amazing. The night in the Sarah was incredible, with drumming and dancing. I definitely recommend Camel Excursions and am still talking about one of the best adventures yet!
