    Top 4 day tour from Marrakech to Merzouga

    We had an amazing 4 days tour from Marrakech with our wonderful tour guide Hassan who was friendly, welcoming and very informative. He kindly customized our trip so we could sandbread with a nomad woman, try dune buggying, and visit all the places we wanted to see. We especially enjoyed learning about Hassan’s upbringing, experiences and perspectives on Morocco and the Berber way of life…
