Unforgettable 3-Day Desert Tour

We booked a 3-day desert tour with Viajes Morocco Tours from Marrakech to Merzouga, and it was a dream come true. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable about Moroccan history and culture, and the journey through the Atlas Mountains was breathtaking. The highlight was definitely the night in the desert under the stars. Everything was well organized, and we felt safe and comfortable throughout the trip.
