2 day trip from Fes to Merzouga Reviews:
Merzouga desert tour
We are a group of friends who have just returned from Morocco. A fabulous journey. We want to highlight the great option we chose to spend a couple of nights in the desert instead of the 1 night/2-day trip we booked with Touring In Morocco. The luxury camp in the middle of the Erg Cheddi dunes, very well equipped. Even more, excellent rooms, very comfortable beds, side tables, pouf, water, fruit ... very clean and equipped bathroom. Towels, soap, shampoo ... It even had different areas to relax with: hammocks, swing, books, cards, snowboards ... Both delicious and abundant dinner and breakfast. Everything was great. Thank you very much for your welcome and for making us live this great experience!
The company was recommended to us by a friend, and now I can see why! We booked the 2 days Sahara desert tour from Fes and enjoyed so much. knowing the culture, people, and seeing the attractions. Surely, the night at the desert camp was the highlight of the 2-day trip. Highly recommended for tourists.
Family camel ride
We traveled with Aziz, perfect driver, light years away from those who say that in Morocco they don't know how to drive, much better than in Italy. Incredible trip, breathtaking places, not only in the Desert. From the gorges to the Canyons, from the Atlas to the oasis full of palm trees. A wonderful country, with a super guide, who advised us not only on the best restaurants but also on strategic points for photos or activities (like feeding the monkeys). We recommend this kind of trip to everyone with this tour operator.
