Day 1: Arrival in Marrakech

Upon your arrival at Marrakech Menara Airport, you’ll be met by our guide and transferred to your riad. You’ll have some time to rest and freshen up before exploring the vibrant city of Marrakech. You can visit the stunning Bahia Palace, Saadian Tombs, and Koutoubia Mosque. In the evening, you can experience the lively atmosphere of Jemaa el-Fnaa, the main square of Marrakech, filled with street performers, food vendors, and local artisans.

Begin your journey by crossing the High Atlas Mountains past one Berber village after another to the UNESCO world heritage site of Ait Ben Haddou. This village is famous for its kasbah and fortified village and has been used as a set for some famous Hollywood epics and magazine photo shoots. After some leisure time, enjoy lunch in a local restaurant and continue your drive through Ouarzazate, known as the Gate of the Sahara. Continue to Boumalne Dades, admiring the scenic drive along the Dades Valley, where you can enjoy dinner and rest for the night at Kasbah Amazigh or Hotel Chems.

Day 3: Dades – Todgha Gorges – Merzouga

Following breakfast, depart your hotel and drive to Tinghir and its dramatic Todgha Gorges,
pausing for some free time to explore the canyons. Enjoy lunch at a local cafe and continue to Merzouga to meet your camel caravan. Experience the Erg Chebbi dunes on camelback and watch the sunset set. Reach your desert camp before nightfall and enjoy an authentic Moroccan dinner under the stars. Local nomads will provide entertainment and show you how to play the traditional Tam Tam drums. Enjoy dinner and an overnight stop.

Day 4: 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. Stop halfway for lunch at a local restaurant. Get dropped off at your original departure point or Djemaa El Fna around 8 PM.

Day 5: Free Day in Marrakech

The fifth day is a free day for you to explore Marrakech at your own pace. You can visit the souks, filled with handicrafts, spices, and textiles. You can also visit the Majorelle Garden, a botanical garden owned by Yves Saint Laurent, or the Bahia Palace, known for its stunning architecture and ornate decorations.

    Overall very good experience and good value for money Most of all it was travelling. I would say 80% travelling and 20% actual sight seeing, so be prepared for road trips most of the time. Stays were really good. Hotels for lunch is a little expensive and sometimes very less options for vegetarian but not to complain they did have veg and vegan options available every place they stopped. Breakfast was ok ish and was vegetarian. People are very nice, driver was really good and very controlled driving seems like very much experience. Never crossed speed limits hence we felt a bit longer trip than it should have been, but again who is to judge. Sahara camping was good, sad we missed sun rise and sun set due to cloudy weather. Camel riding was good but feel sad for the animal.
