3 reviews for 6 Days Desert Tours from Marrakesh

  1. Mike

    This trip did what it said – we saw the highlights of Morocco from city to coast to mountain and desert. It was amazingly varied, balancing time in cities and countryside, and illustrating Morocco’s vibrant history, culture and people. I certainly came back with a real feeling for the place and people and a greater understanding of an apparently happily functioning Islamic country.

  2. Thomas

    Essential Morocco was an absolute dream. Every single day had such informative walking tours and tours of local facilities. Whether it was dinner with a local family or visiting a pottery factory, I learned so much about Moroccan culture. The accommodations were safe and I felt secure the entire 6 days. This trip wouldn’t have been the same without one person. That person is jamal. If you are coming to Morocco with Morocco Travel Guide and you don’t request jamal, you’re doing it wrong. Words cannot describe how incredible of a guide he is. There were 3 of us on our trip of 18-29 year olds and he made us all feel so welcome and safe all the time. Whether that is cracking jokes on long drives or giving us the itinerary for the next day, jamal ensured we felt respected and seen.

  3. Hary

    Trip to Morocco Desert Uncovered is an excellent way to see Morocco – from the normal touristy sights to absolutely incredible experiences unable to be accessed outside of this tour such as meals in private homes and interactions with locals. Be a Traveller, not a Tourist!
