The best way to experience Morocco

My friends and I booked the 4 day desert tour from Fes to Marrakesh and it was an incredible experience. The trip itself was long, however, our driver Hakim Hamzawi made all the difference. He made sure we had everything we needed and went above and beyond by fulfilling any small requests.

He was very kind and respectful, showed up early, and made it easy for us to take naps in the car. The SUV was very comfortable and we got to see a lot of the country we otherwise wouldn’t see on our own. The only thing we are regretting is not booking more time in the Sahara!


An incredibly unique adventure

We had an amazing time on our excursion - starting in from Fes and ending in Marrakech via Desert. Our driver, drive, was absolutely incredible. He was friendly, accommodating, and extremely knowledgeable about all the sites that we were passing. Although the days consist of long drives, we drove through some incredible scenery and made frequent stops along the way.

The driver took us to spots that I'm sure I never would have visited otherwise, including a Berber family home. We stayed one night in a gorgeous hotel in the Dades Valley and the other night in an excellent tent in the desert after a long (and fun!) camel ride. We will never forget Drice and the experience we had!


Fes to Marrakech desert tour 4 days

My boyfriend and I went on the 4-day trip from Fes to Merzouga to Marrakech with Rachid - 100% would recommend!

On top of experiencing the camel ride through the Sahara desert (which is amazing), the excursion gives you a chance to explore the real Morocco - how people are living today, the different landscapes, the taste of a home cook meal in a Berber village, and a 4-day history lesson with a guide that has endless knowledge (if you want to know and ask a lot of questions). We felt safe and the hospitality was amazing throughout the trip. You won't regret it...
