An amazing Marrakech to Fes desert tour 3 days

We booked a private 3-day tour from Marrakech to Fes and had an amazing time with our guide, Hassan! Hassan grew up in the Sahara and thinks 40 degrees Celsius is cold, so he had so much knowledge about the area and culture to share with us. We had a great time together, he was a very safe driver and always made sure we were comfortable. We highly recommend him as a guide!
The tour was extremely well organized, all the accommodations was amazing, and the camel trek through Erg Chebbi was such a highlight. We also loved seeing the Barbary Macaques near Ifran.


Superb experience !!!!

After reading a few reviews my wife and I decided to book this 3 days tour to Fes. There are plenty of other operators but we made the right choice! Moha was a superb driver/guide/historian, and now a friend!
We met another lovely couple at the van and once the trip started we knew we were in good hands. Lots of driving, but lots of breaks, sights, and good conversation along the way. We read reviews that mentioned less than great meals, but this was not the case for us. Going with a small group (4) enabled us to make quick stops when we wanted, or extend our time at others. My wife and I rarely do formal tours, but we are truly pleased that we did this one.
Highly recommend this three day tour, and all the “ excellent “ reviews for this trip are well deserved!


Best anniversary experience without a doubt ♡♡♡♡♡♡

We’re glad to have chosen Viajes Morroco for our 3 days private Marrakesh to Fes tour.
Before booking it, Moha was simply outstanding answering all our questions and helping us with itinerary related and other doubts. Always responsive and clear, made us feel they were the company to go with from the start.
Overnights in Boumalne Dades and Erg Cherbi did not disappoint – the room and tent were very good.
Our driver/guide Hassan was friendly and professional. Thanks, man
