Moroccan Desert 3-Day Tour from Marrakech | 8 2019
This trip was everything. From beginning to end, Brahim (our guide) and Mohommad (our driver), were terrific! They made sure that any request big or small was accomplished, and knew a ton of stuff about our tour and Marrakesh in general. We were able to stop from time to time at many different scenic locations to and from the desert. From the High Atlas Mountains to the Atlas Studios and little towns in between our travel to the desert, and seeing the Sahara at dusk and sunrise, it was amazing! As an apprehensive solo female traveler from the States, I was happy to have had them guiding our journey! They were super, and I had a lot of fun on my trip with them and the rest of the group!
Lodging was taken care of from beginning to end, and we were given great options for lunch, too along the way. For our accommodation the first night, we stayed in Kasbah Itran in Rose Valley. Such a neat place that had access to private bathrooms, including warm showers and toilets with toilet paper and outlets for charging your electronics. My room even had a cute balcony and extra bed! When in the desert, we stayed in a tent with a slide bolt to fasten the door. There is also no electricity for charging things. However, even for someone who isn't an outdoorsy person at all, I survived. There is a bathroom in the middle of the camp with a sink. You'll be given access to showers the next day at the hotel where your belongings are stored. Prepare too to be using pain relievers, as riding camels may cause some discomfort. There was always a ton of food for breakfast and dinner.
Bring toilet paper and sanitizer with you as some of the rest stops DO NOT have toilet paper!!!! I repeat. Many stops along the way do not have toilet paper. Portable chargers also will come in handy when in the desert. Sunscreen & hats are a +.
I had the best travel companions EVER, from different parts of the US and Europe for the trip (aka the Sahara Squad). Only 2/4 guests came together and knew each other beforehand. We enjoyed each other so much that we saw each other several times during the week after.
I keep raving about how this was indeed a once-in-a-lifetime experience because it was! This tour is perfect for solo travelers (both male and female- as I was a solo female traveler and was fine), families, or small groups. Keep and open mind, bring something to take photos with, and have a great time! - Sahara Desert Squad Member K :) …さらに表示
