“We did the 4 Days Desert Tour Fes to Marrakech through Merzouga with Rashid. This is the best possible way to see the desert and everything between Fes and Marrakech in this short amount of time. I highly recommend not doing it any other way unless you have several weeks to burn. Rashid was very professional, a great driver, and so much fun. Ismail and Mustafa were also incredible guides for our day in Merzouga. We saw so much and covered so much ground in four days, I can hardly believe it. I also appreciate that the hotels we stayed in were the hotels listed in the itinerary, and they were all great. Our overnight trip to the desert was also very well done, and the food actually tasted home cooked – believe it or not it was one of the best meals we had in morocco. Overall our guide service was very personal, and the car was great! Everyone was very fluent in multiple languages, and Rashid made us feel very safe and comfortable the entire time, we were so relaxed and well taken care of I can’t imagine our trip without him. These guys know what they are doing – from the pillows and coolers full of fruit and water in the SUV’s to the personal pace of the drive (and knowing where all the best bathrooms are on the road!) THANKS for a great time!”
“We had such an amazing time on this trip, what an unbelievable experience! Our guide was Rachid and we couldn’t have gotten luckier, he was kind, punctual, spoke great English, happened to be an excellent photographer, and knows just about everything. Very impressive! The great thing about this tour is that everything is planned for you, for the first and third nights the hotels were arranged for us, we met some lovely people, watched the sunset on the dunes, and ate wonderful Moroccan food. The second night we spent in the desert, where we traveled by camelback 🙂 it was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience, the desert was way more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. It’s a long drive but totally worth it, and the car was extremely comfortable and there was plenty to see on the way there and back – from absolutely stunning views of the gorges and valleys to beautiful towns and small villages. I felt like I was on the set of a beautiful movie the entire time! I’ve traveled to over 30 countries within the past several years and I can say this was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had, highly recommend it!! A million thanks to Rachid for an unforgettable trip, we really did fall in love with Morocco.”

Because of the beauty of the surrounding Sahara Desert and the town’s oasis sections, Erfoud is a popular filming location. Many films have been filmed in Erfoud, including: The Mummy, prince of Percia, March or Die…

This region of Morocco has also been discovered as having similarities in look and possibly geology to specific regions of Mars. As a result, there is growing interest in this region as a field study location for Mars analogue research.

The Austrian Space Forum spent the entire month of February 2013 doing tests with a field crew that included two space suit simulators (Aouda.X and Aouda.S) and a number of rovers. To mimic a voyage to the surface of Mars, they were assisted by a Mission Support Center based in Innsbruck, Austria. On February 11, the main desert base camp was designated Camp Weyprecht, while a subsequent satellite camp some 80 kilometers south was named Station Payer.


Ouarzazate was once a tiny crossing point for African traders traveling to northern Morocco and Europe. Sheikh Abu al-‘Abaas Ahmed bin Abdellah al-Wizkiti al-Warzazi, amir of the qasba of Ouarzazate and father of Lalla Masuda, helped establish Saadi rule over the Sous-Dra’a region in the 16th century.
During the French occupation, Ouarzazate grew significantly as a military town, administrative center, and customs station. It is home to the Kasbah Taourirt, which was the former cad’s kasbah and was afterwards owned by T’hami El Glaoui. Today, the Krupp field gun that secured Glaoui power is on display outside the kasbah.
The region is also famed for its Ouazguita carpets, which have geometric motifs in red and orange on a black background.

The Ouarzazate region is a well-known filming location, with Morocco’s major studios attracting numerous foreign production companies to operate there. Lawrence of Arabia (1962), The Man Who Would Be King (1975), The Living Daylights (1987), The Last Temptation of Christ (1988), The Mummy (1999), Gladiator (2000), Kingdom of Heaven (2005), Kundun (1997), Legionnaire (1998), Hanna (2011), The Hills Have Eyes (2006), and Salmon Fishing in Yemen (2011) were all filmed here, as was Game of Thrones.
