Reviews about the 5 days Agadir desert tour:
This travel company organized a fantastic 5-day tour in Morocco for us. Ali, our driver, was amazing; he was always willing to assist us and stop anytime we requested. Aziz, our route guide, was also very kind and helpful. He patiently answered all of our inquiries and provided extensive information about his nation. The meals were really good and delectable, particularly the Tagine and couscous. The way Moroccans eat is something we appreciate much. We came to a new culture that was diverse and rich.
The desert of Merzouga was the highlight of our 5-day tour from Agadir. Riding camels and seeing the vast Erg Chebbi sand dunes, as well as staying in Berber tents, were highlights of our trip. Thank you, Touring In Morocco, for an amazing experience that I strongly suggest!!

A fantastic tour with companions, led by our fantastic guide Hamid! We have the sense of being alone in the world in the center of this stunning scenery as we start the day in Merzouga's desert!
The tea break with a Berber family, where we discussed and exchanged views on local culture and customs, was fantastic. We got back on the road and headed for the Atlas Mountains. I'd like to do this tour again! Totally unique and really rewarding! I'm overjoyed to have been able to see another side of Morocco just "a few steps" from Agadir! This is an adventure that I strongly suggest!

Ali, our driver, was a wonderful person. We spent 5 days with him and were so impressed with his customer service that we wanted to ask him again. For the third day, we upgraded to a tent, which was roomy and had clean and comfy mattresses and restrooms. There was enough of hot water in the showers for up to two persons. On the second day, we stayed at a fantastic hotel with a breathtaking view of nature in front of us.
We had excellent Moroccan meals every day. Every time we stopped for lunch, the driver took us to a lovely, clean restaurant, and we were really pleased with the meal. Surprisingly, rental wi-fi was provided throughout the facility. Thank you for the wonderful services provided by Touring In Morocco.

Merzouga is a village in southern Morocco near the Algerian border, at the entrance to the Sahara Desert, 200 km from Tinghir and 350 km from Ouarzazate. Merzouga’s world-renowned sand dunes are the city’s most famous feature. Luckily, you will visit it with our 5 days tour from Agadir.
It’s close to the Erg de Chebbi, which boasts some of the Sahara’s most beautiful dunes as well as Morocco’s highest permanent dunes. It is Morocco’s sole erg, along with the Erg of Chegaga (or Chigaga). Merzouga is one of the final cities in Morocco before entering the Sahara, located about fifty kilometers from the Algerian border.
Merzouga is a harsh, hot, and arid desert location. The average temperature in the summer can reach 45 degrees during the day and 25 degrees in the winter, however, temperatures can drop to below zero degrees at night in both seasons. So pack a warm item in your suitcase.
Rainfall is uncommon, but when it does occur, it is often heavy and stormy. Merzouga experiences very little bad weather and always has a clear sky, both during the day and at night, making it excellent for astronomy.
Merzouga is located a few kilometers from the Dayet Srij lake, which may be viewed after passing over the vast sand dunes. It has a wonderful view of the dunes as well as a plethora of wildlife. The tranquility that emanates from this magnificent location will fascinate you. Witnessing pink flamingos or white storks gliding over the blue of the lake, with the spectacular Merzouga dunes in the background, is a sight to see. This strange landscape has a seductive attraction. It’s strange to come across a pool on the outskirts of the desert.
The Ouarzazate and Dades valleys (both from the High Atlas) meet to produce the Draa river, which flows through Ouarzazate. It serves as the nerve center for most of southern Morocco. Ouarzazate conjures up memories of the southern slopes of the High Atlas as well as the proximity of the desert.
Ouarzazate has a desert climate, with only 112 millimeters of annual rainfall. Rainfall is minimal and unpredictable in the summer, if not non-existent. In the winter, temperatures are warm at night, and in the summer, the heat is intense throughout the day. Because the Oued drâa’s waters are utilized to irrigate agricultural area, farming is only possible.
The Taourirt Kasbah, which belonged to Pasha El Glaoui and was built in the middle of the 18th century, is the city’s symbol.
The kasbah Ait Benhaddou:
In Morocco, kasbahs may be found in abundance. The largest and most visited Kasbah fortress is Ait Benhaddou. Since 1987, Unesco has designated this site as a Unesco World Heritage Site. The Kasbah, on the other hand, was constructed in the 11th century by the Glawi family.
In addition, this region is well-known for the caravan Touareg nomads who used to trek 52 days from Tombouctou. They came to trade salt since the region contained a river named Oued El Maleh, with Oued referring to the river and Maleh referring to the salt.
That structure has roughly seven stories, each with many clays and mud homes. The big one is on top, and it used to be where they kept salt for guests who wanted to trade.
A number of films and television series have included this area. Take the example of Gladiator, Kingdom of Heaven, and more. This location is included in the 5 days tour from agadir
Marrakech is Morocco’s most popular tourist destination. It is also known as the tourist city and the red city due to its color. One of Morocco’s four imperial towns, this massive and gorgeous metropolis is one of the largest and most beautiful in the country. Yusuf Ibn Tashfin designed it in 1062.
Marrakech’s Jemaa el Fnaa square is well-known. Snake charmers and people doing Halka “street performance” may be found there in actuality. Because it is the city’s market or souk, you may come across sellers offering a wide range of goods.
The Koutoubia mosque is located in the middle of Jemaa el Fnaa. With a 773-meter-high tower, it is also known as Kutubiyya and is Marrakech’s biggest mosque. Non-Muslims are not permitted to enter. Hassan II Mosque is the only mosque in Casablanca that allows it.
For art lovers in Marrakech, there is a lovely park named Majorelle. This Moroccan-themed art gallery was created by French artist John Jacques Majorelle. Keep in mind that beautiful garden took this French artist 40 years to create.
