This 3-day tour to Merzouga and Erg Chebbi is ideal for intrepid travelers hoping to explore Morocco away from the hustle and bustle of busy Marrakech. Visit UNESCO-listed sites and relax to traditional Moroccan music beneath star-lit Sahara Desert skies.
This is a great tour. We were collected from our Riad and taken to meet the minibus, met our fellow travellers of all ages and nationalities then headed off into the Atlas mountains and on to the desert. We made lots of stops along the way to take in the view and visit amazing attractions. The highlight was the camel riding and night at the Berber camp, even though we had the most tremendous thunder and lightening storm it didn't dampen our spirits and to see the sun rise over the Sahara from the back of a camel is an unforgettable experience. The staff at the camp and our driver were brilliant. The journey back on the last day was quite long but there was always something to look at out of the window. This is a great tour to escape the madness of Marrakech and discover some of the many faces of Morocco. Amazing value for money.
Amazing tour. The 2 hour camel track at sunset and then again at sunrise is obviously the highlight but there were many other beautiful things to see on the tour. Just seeing the different landscapes from the bus is often really interesting. They do take you to some local Berber people who then try to sell you something, but they give enough information so that it doesn't become an annoyance.
It's a 9 hour long drive back on the third day so bringing something to entertain yourself in that time is not a bad idea. The temperatures change a lot during the tour. One moment you are high in the atlas mountains and it's really cold, next you are in broad daylight and it's hot so it's nice to be able to easily add or remove a layer or two every now and then.
The tourguide does give some information along the way, but there is a lot more to learn about the interesting lifestyle of the Berber people so in hindsight I wish I had asked a lot more questions during the trip. The tourguide seemed more than happy to answer questions.
Beautiful experience,we got exactly what is described. The trip is a bit long and exhausting, but it is totally worth it. A once in a lifetime experience. I felt completely safe on the road, the driver was very prudent and did not take any risks. Very recommended
A must do trip when in Marrakech. All went well as described!
Amazing! We got so much value out of this tour! The car ride (whilst long and hot) was so nice and we got to go to amazing sites. Every guide we had was such fun and so informative (perfect English). The camel riding was surreal and the overnight stays were just amazing!
My boyfriend and I booked the duluxe version of this tour. Everything was better than we imagined. We especially loved the night in the desert and the hotel we stayed in the first night had amazing views! Highly recommend
Our driver Alluli is extremely awesome!! He is funny and has good stamina. Drove for long hours and could still keep chatting with us to keep us entertained during the long journey!
All was as described in advertising. The bus was first rate. The driver was excellent. He drove very carefully and with in the speed limit. Camels were fun and sleeping in the desert was the highlight of our visit.
For the price it was great!
Dont expect much from the overnight stay but this is not what this whole trip is about.
You get to see alot in the few days, great driver and tour guides.
