In Morocco, my mother and I stayed for three days. We received a friend's recommendation to take the 3-day desert excursion from Fes to Marrakech. We saw that this agency had a lot of positive evaluations when we looked at their testimonials. So we made the decision to arrange a trip with them. I can only say that the service was a huge surprise! They were a great help to us throughout the journey. Additionally, Hassan, our guide, was highly knowledgeable and took great care to explain the customs and culture of Morocco. The tents in the desert of Merzouga were unbelievable, to say the least. Highly advised, and be sure to pick Hassan as your guide!


Vacations In Morocco

We used Vacations In Morocco to arrange a shared 3-day trip for our family of six from Fes to Marrakech. We thoroughly enjoyed our excursion in their roomy Jeep. The highlight of our trip was a camel ride in the Merzouga desert and viewing the sunrise and sunset. We also want to express our gratitude to Addi, our driver. He speaks more than three languages and is extremely knowledgeable. In conclusion, if you're searching for a 3-day tour in Morocco, book with them and pick Addi as your Sahara desert guide.
