5 reviews for Desert tour 5 days from Marrakech to Merzouga

  1. Anca Sarbu

    We started our trip to Marrakech very anxious about the main event of it: going to Merzouga desert. After deep research on what agency to choose from I ended up contacting Go Marrakech Desert Trips. It was the best quality/price I got.
    We went on a small shared group tour but ended up going with just the two of us because there were no more reservations for that day. Abdou picked us up at our riad and I can’t describe the gentleness and passion he has for what he does. Abdou was just the perfect driver and made us feel the Moroccan culture in the best way possible.
    We could ask everything we wanted and he also respected our silence along this big trip. I can’t thank him enough for the memories he created for us and the desire of coming back with him to explore more cities of Morocco. A country we fell in love with.
    Thank you Go Marrakech Desert Trips and thank you Abdou for everything you did to welcome us to your beautiful country.

    See you soon!!!

    Awesome trip! Our guide Abdou was extremely knowledgeable and passionate, and both he and our driver Mourad were so courteous and caring throughout the whole journey. The Sahara desert and camel trek were absolutely incredible and so worth the drive from Marrakesh. The camping in the desert was beautiful and such a fun unique experience. The hotels and dinners included in the tour along the way were really incredible as well. Along the way, we stopped at historic sites and small villages which was very nice to see too to break up the drive. Would recommend!!!

  3. Susan Bonanno

    We just came back from our 5 Days/4 Nights tour beginning and ending in Marrakech. The tour was absolutely amazing and we enjoyed all the stunning landscapes, the desert experience, and the all sites that we visited. With us is our driver Jamal
    Thank you Jamal your great competence and your passion for what you showed us made us appreciate even more the beauty of the places. We really suggest Camel Safari if you want to live a unique and extraordinary experience that will always remain with you!

  4. Abigail Elem

    Super tour, highly recommended for those who want to do something special outside Marrakech, experience the desert, and watch wonderful landscapes. It is also a great way to learn more about Moroccan culture thanks to the possibility of having a driver-guide fully at your disposal (thanks Abdou for your patience in answering all our questions!) Just one needs to be prepared for the long trips in the car, but it is worth it!

  5. Micky Banuelos

    A ‘must see’ once-in-a-lifetime experience! The driver Abdou was the very best driver one could ask for. He practiced driving safely and comfortably to a tee. He was kind and considerate with a good sense of humor. Abdou was and is a man of humanity. The driving hours were extremely long, but Abdou was alert throughout continuously driving efficiently and getting to our destinations in a timely manner. The program was very thoughtfully planned. All ‘must see’ locations were visited, highlighted by the camel ride through the sunsetting Sahara Desert! Later at night, you will get to see the endless stars under the Sahara sky. Overall, one definitely should be prepared for long stretches of sitting in pain, but all is well worth all that suffering. Emphatically two thumbs up!
