Review about our 5 days itinerary in Morocco:
An unforgettable experience
An unforgettable experience and interesting excursions! We were lucky to find this agency 😊 Guide Aziz is very attentive, punctual, and patient with every detail. We had originally planned a five-day excursion to the desert, but we enjoyed it so much that when we arrived in Marrakech we decided to go to the ocean as well ... Incredibly beautiful scenery. Desert, mountains, beach.... this country has it all!!! And you have to discover it all to appreciate it. ... We feel in love with Morocco 😊
Aziz accompanied us everywhere, answering all questions, telling interesting stories about this country and its people... Of course only with a true native Berber can you feel all the charm, silence, and beauty of the desert, the globality of the ocean ... In general, we returned home full of impressions with a desire to return to this country again and again! There is still a lot to do and we will definitely contact Aziz. I recommend the agency for serious attitude and real prices.
Our 5 tour began in Casablanca, passing by Fes, and driving across the mountains and valleys to arrive at Merzouga desert. Lhoussain is a super driver, has the GPS in his head, as a son of the desert he knows almost every part of the country. We spent a super beautiful, starry night with campfire romance and morning camel ride at sunrise, in the desert. An impressive experience.
The many hours in the car were very entertaining and we learned a lot about the country. I'm already looking forward to a next trip with Lhoussain.
I met Ali a few years ago in Casablanca. A few friends and I have made with him and his car a small road trip through Morocco. This was, also due to the charming care of Ali and his friends, an unforgettable time. I like Ali's friendly and courteous manner. He knows how tourists like to be treated and what to do to make them feel comfortable.
As with all tourist guides in the world, you can tell that Ali needs money to live. This travel agency is highly recommended for sure!

Sites overview of our 5 days in Morocco itinerary:
Casablanca, the economical city:
In Spanish, Casablanca means “White House,” and in Arabic, it means “Dar al Beida.” Casablanca is Morocco’s capital and largest city. It is situated directly on the Atlantic coast, south of the Moroccan city of Rabat. The city proper has a population of around 3,200,000 people, and the Grand Casablanca region, which includes the suburbs, has a population of about 4,000,000 people. In general, about 7.2 million people live in Casablanca city, making it one of the most densely populated areas in the country. Casablanca is Morocco’s most important commercial and industrial center, as well as the largest port in North Africa.
Fes, also known as Fez, is a provincial city in northern Morocco, with the terraced old town of Fes el-Bali in the Oued Fes valley and the plateau district of Fes el-Djedid. The city is one of the country’s most significant economic centers. Its core economic activities include the production of leather, textiles, and metal products, as well as dyeing and pottery. Handicrafts, carpets, jewelry, and perfumes are also made. A vibrant trade in agricultural products from the local countryside also existed. Fes is also the capital of the Fes-Boulemane region, which is one of Morocco’s 16 provinces.
Merzouga Sahara desert:
Mergouza is 45 kilometers far from Erfoud. Also, it is about 20 kilometers from the Algerian borders. It is one of the last villages before the Sahara desert takes over the landscape.
Merzouga is the starting point for Erg Chebbi excursions. The fine sand hills there can exceed a height of 150 meters. Brown waves stretch for miles. This is exactly how you imagine a desert.
In the evenings, you will enjoy authentic Moroccan entertainment in Merzouga. Drums and charming folk dances blend beautifully with a delicious tagine, freshly baked bread, and couscous.
It’s worth driving to Dayet Srji after the desert. Throughout the year, rare species can be found in this saltwater lake west of Merzouga. Birdwatchers, in particular, would be blown away. In the spring, flamingos, buzzards, and falcons can be seen in this area. Reptiles such as snakes and lizards, as well as gerbils and desert foxes, abound.
The Kasbah of Ait Benhaddou:
The Ksar of Ait Ben Haddou is located approximately 29 kilometers from the city of Ouarzazate. It is a fortified town protected by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. The Ksar is one of the most typical examples of traditional Moroccan mud-brick architecture common in the pre-Saharan region.
In addition, Ait-Ben-Haddou, for its cinematography, is loved by many of the world’s directors. A large number of films have been shot here, I will name just a few: Jesus of Nazareth, Mummy, Gladiator, Alexander.
The Ksar is located on the left bank of the Ouarzazate River. In ancient times, a caravan route from Marrakech via Zagora to Timbuktu ran along with it. The Ksar was probably built in the 11th century. But there are still many families living in the houses, selling souvenirs.
Walking among these ancient walls, associations emerge with events that may have taken place here in ancient times. Ait Ben Haddou is a really interesting place.
Marrakech, the red city:
Located about 150 kilometres from the Atlantic coast, Marrakech is, along with Casablanca, Fes and Rabat, one of Morocco’s largest and most important urban centres. The influx of tourists has prompted the authorities to build one of the country’s largest airports on the outskirts of the city, making Marrakech extremely accessible.
Once in Marrakech you can check into one of the dozens of hotels that dot the city. The choice is extremely varied, so you can check into a two-star hotel for €25 a night or a five-star for which you’ll have to pay at least €70. You can also opt for guesthouses. Offers start from as little as seven euros.
A must-see tourist attraction is the al Koutoubia Mosque, whose almost 80-metre-high minaret is the city’s emblem. In the old part of the city, known as the Medina, you can admire the famous palaces of the sultans. Here you can also walk along the fortification walls built in the 12th century, which are over 10 kilometres long. Nearby is one of North Africa’s most famous Islamic schools, built in the late 14th century.
