The best Marrakech desert tour in 3 days!

My first experience of the Sahara desert was on a three-day desert tour from Marrakech, and it was incredible. We began in Marrakech, where we were met by Said, who accompanied us throughout the 3 days tour. He was the best driver and travel companion we've ever had, and we learned a lot about Moroccan culture from him. Because of him and the guides we met along the way, the tour was fantastic. During the three-day desert tour, we met many other people, and I promise I will never forget them all.

Excellent experience. Recommended

On this 3-day desert trip from Marrakech to Erg-Chebbi, we had the most incredible experience. Our driver, Mohamed, was absolutely fantastic and went above and beyond to make our trip memorable and enjoyable. He even took us to his family's house for tea and was always there to make sure we were served as soon as possible! He constantly checked in on us, made us laugh, and was an all-around nice guy. The trip itself was fantastic. The desert is incredible, and all of the stops along the way were fascinating and educational. It far exceeded our expectations!
