Reviews about our Fes to Marrakech desert tour 3 days

My girlfriend and I had the best 3-day tour from Marrakech all the way to Fes. We’ve seen Marrakech and been to the Sahara Desert, had a lot of fun moments throughout our journey. Our driver Rachid is a great guy, as he’d stop whenever we wanted to; plus, He was super kind all the way from the start till the end. Also, We were able to learn and appreciate the culture throughout the journey.

The night in the luxury desert camp and the stops for panoramic views of the Atlas Mountains were the tour’s highlights. Again, many thanks to the Holidays in Morocco for a wonderful 3-day desert tour journey!

Best 3-day tour from Marrakech to Fes. We had a lot of fun and saw a lot of wonderful places. Rachid from Holidays in Morocco who was our guide, was really nice and patient with us. He taught us a lot about Morocco’s history and geography and so much about the Berber traditions as he is one of them.

Having a personalized tour with this company made it easy for us, bc we had the freedom to avoid the stuff we didn’t want to see, and Rachid made his way to make sure we got precisely what we needed, even if it meant making an extra stop here and there. The rooms at the accommodations and meals were excellent. Holidays in Morocco crew’s the best
