Reviews about our 4 days tour from Marrakech to Merzouga Sahara desert

We had a great time in Morocco, especially during our 4 days tour from Marrakech to the Sahara Desert. It was fun driving through the Atlas Mountains with our driver & tour guide Rachid. We learned lots of new things during this tour and we hope we come back to Morocco soon. The roads we stayed on we all very comfortable and we enjoyed our stay on each one of them. The desert luxury camp was really fabulous. Thanks, Holidays in Morocco for this trip of life time.


Great adventure. Friendly driver& and nice driving. Glad I decided to visit the Sahara Desert cuz I would never want to miss seeing such a wonderful place in Morocco.  I really enjoyed the most: the camel trekking across the dunes, the sunset, and the sandboarding on the high dune. Our stay in the camp was amazing, we had delicious food and a memorable time around the campfire they made us.  Very recommended for everyone traveling to Morocco soon.
