3 reviews for 6 Day Atlas Valleys Trek and Sahara Desert Tour from Marrakesh

  1. Moress Becher

    Highlights were the camel ride into the Sahara and the overnight desert camp, the stay in the mountain village guest house and hike the next morning and spending time with some lovely like-minded families. Our tour leader was well organised, polite and helpful but we would have appreciated some more interaction at mealtimes and learning more about Morocco and his life.

  2. dinns

    Excellent adventure trip for our family. Our leader, cook, driver were all excellent. Meeting other families on this trip also added to our great experience. The itinerary was action packed but most afernoons we were free to enjoy a much needed afternoon swim. We would highly recommend this holiday to any family who would like something different when it comes to holidaying.

  3. Tome

    During our 6 days tour through the Atlas mountains and the desert we collected wonderful expierences of the morrocan nature and many berber villages. We started with a guided two day trek from Imil in the Typically region together with Hamid, enjoying picturesque lunches with beautiful views of the mountains. Afterwards, our driver Hassan took us to many beautiful places like Quarzarzate and the Dades valley to finally arrive in the Merzouga desert where we collected unforgettable expierences of its beautiful dunes while sitting on a camels back. On our way back to Marrakesch we took a different route to see as many new and interesting places as possible. Hassan was a really good driver and did not leave any of our many questions unanswered. Additionally, he adapted the tour/stops according to our wishes. Overall, the tour was really well organised, we stayed in great riads/guest houses and had delicious meals.
