    Best Marrakesh Fes deser tour Ever

    I really recommend you to do your tour with To Morocco Travel. Before our trip, Hassan answered to all of our questions very fast and offered his help the hole time. I can say that the van that we used to go to the desert was very comfortable for a long trip. Riads and camping where we stayed at the desert were nice, clean and we had always a delicious dinner and breakfast.

    Hassan was a very good tour guide, friendly, he explained everything and the most important, even we were just girls, we felt safe the hole time because he was always by our side.

    Amazing 3 days Marrakech to Fes

    The best trip by far! I loved our tour with Hassan. He took us to all the must see attractions and he was very patient with us as we stopped by a few shops for souvenirs. Hassan also invited us to his house for tea! Super hospitable. He would definitely go back to Morocco again…

    Incredible desert experience

    It was a truly unforgettable experience that offers a unique opportunity to explore the desert and unique cities in Morocco. With the guide of Lahcen, we got to ride dirt bikes and camels through dunes and spent great time under stars in the desert. We also experienced the local music, food and traditions, which were impressive. I highly recommend to everyone that don’t hesitate to grab the chance to disconnect from the modern world!

    Luxury Marrakech to Fes 3 DAYS


    Is it possible to take a day trip to the Sahara Desert from Marrakech?

    A day trip to the Sahara desert from Marrakech is not possible. Merzouga, the Sahara’s gateway, is about 350 miles or 560 kilometers from Marrakech, through winding mountain passes and dizzying curves. As a result, you shouldn’t expect to reach the Sahara in a single day from Marrakech.

    Is it worthwhile to visit the Sahara Desert?

    The Sahara Desert is the largest hot desert in the world and is a bucket-list destination for many. The idea of spending a night in a tent under a million stars and climbing sand dunes to watch the sunset is certainly appealing.

    What is the closest city to the Sahara desert?

    The best and most direct route to the Sahara is through Morocco, with Errachidia being the closest major city to the desert.

    What is the best time of year to visit Sahara?

    When is the best time to visit the Sahara? Most likely in the autumn (September-November) or early spring (March-early April). With scorching heat in the summer and freezing temperatures at night in the winter, avoiding these extremes will make your desert stay more comfortable.

    Is it possible to sleep in the Sahara desert?

    While it is possible to visit as a day trip, I recommend sleeping in the Sahara for a truly unique experience. If visiting the Sahara Desert is on your bucket list, keep the following tips in mind: Keep in mind the Moroccan temperatures.

    What is the Policy on Cancellation?

    If you cancel at least 4 days before the trip date, you will receive a full refund.
