Ride across the dunes of Erg Chebbi by camel, and sleep at a desert camp surrounded by high sand dunes. Day 1: Marrakech - Ait Ben Haddou - Tinghir After an early departure from the Marrakech hotel, your journey begins by crossing the High Atlas Mountains past one Berber village after another to the UNESCO world heritage site of Ait Ben Haddou, famous for its Kasbah and fortified village, and previously used as a set for some famous Hollywood epics as well as a backdrop for some fashion magazines photo shoots. After some leisure time to explore the village with its Kasbah, enjoy lunch in a local restaurant, then continue your drive through Ouarzazate, known as the Gate of the Sahara and onto Boumalne Dades, admiring the scenic drive along the road to Tinghir, where you can enjoy dinner and an overnight stop.  Day 2: Tinghir - Todgha Gorges - Merzouga Following breakfast, depart your hotel and drive to the dramatic Todgha Gorges, pausing for some free time to explore the canyons and enjoy lunch at a local café. Continue to Merzouga to meet your camel caravan. Then, experience the Erg Chebbi dunes on camelback and watch the sunset change the color of the sand. Reach your desert camp before nightfall and enjoy an authentic Moroccan dinner under the stars. Local nomads will provide the entertainment and show you how to play the Tam Tam drums. Enjoy dinner and an overnight stop. Day 3: Merzouga Ouarzazate - Marrakech Following an early wake up to watch the sunrise before breakfast (optional), a driver will be waiting to pick you up for the transfer back to Marrakech.

Just wow. If you want to get to know Morocco and especially the Sahara, you should definitely book this excursion. You can't beat the price for what you get. It's not just the performance that has convinced me. Also the people you got to know. My special thanks go to Mohamed, our driver. A great person who was there for you from start to finish. With him, the group felt safe and secure. Thanks also to Ali and Hassan, our guides on site. Not unmentioned are the guys from the camp who hosted our group. Simply great people who were always eager to be good hosts non-stop. A note: dinner is included as advertised. The prices for lunch (on the way) are set a little higher than usual. With a drink you get around 12 euros per lunch. I still find a framework. I will definitely repeat this unforgettable trip again.

Trip au top! J’ai vu des choses incroyables en si peu de temps. Saïd est un excellent chauffeur et très sympathique. Il a su tout au long du voyage me faire découvrir la culture marocaine avec moults anecdotes. Merci aussi à Ali à Thinghir et Mohammed à Merzouga. J’ai passé un excellent moment, bien au delà de ce que j’en attendais!

I cant believe a tour this good is available for this inexpensive. We stopped in multiple villages, were shown around by incredible local guides, rode camels, and got to spend the night in a desert camp dancing around the fire. We felt safe and taken care of the entire time. Book this tour for sure!

Exceptional stay with my wife and my mother. A big thank you to: - Said the driver - Mohammed the driver - Ali the guide of Tinghir I highly recommend this excursion, very beautiful discovery of the desert and the beautiful villages of the Atlas.

Le voyage était super !! Un grand merci au chauffeur (Mohamed), il nous a permit de faire de ce voyage, un souvenir mémorable, grâce à toutes ses petites attentions!!
