About Sahara Trips in Morocco

Depending upon your holiday plans you can begin one of these excursions from Marrakech, Fez, Ouarzazate, Zagora and Erfoud. The Marrakech options are fantastic for those of you on short breaks to the Imperial city.

"It was a great trip you put on for us to Morocco, our driver Aminn was an absolute gem, first class guy. A great trip."

"The desert camps conjured up marvellous food. The visit to The Islamic Library and pottery workshops was actually advertised locally as free, and the guides explained (not hinted, but told ) we were expected quite openly to tip heavily. The weather was poor, we had hailstorms in the Sahara."

"Our main driver was very well informed and attentive to our needs. He made our long drive a pleasure. The service throughout and was excellent and personalised. We had lots of privacy and quiet seclusion. The visit to the local pottery where everything was made traditionally starting from making clay from the mud was very interesting."

"Thank you for your help in organising this holiday, we had a fantastic time! The desert tour and camel trek was a real highlight, and the riad in Marrakech was perfect - beautiful rooms and helpful staff. All the logistics ran smoothly and the local guides were very good (although the stop in Tamagroute was not so interesting). Overall a great experience and I will contact you if we decide to visit any of the other destinations offered by RTW."

"David and I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you both for organising the most fantastic birthday holiday for us. Everything was so effortless and perfectly arranged. We hope it will be a lot sooner than 9 years to be in touch again for our next trip (and it hopefully won't be so last minute too!). Very best wishes and thanks"

"Seeing the Sahara and experiencing sunset in this magical and barren place. Our guide for the Marrakech walking tour was lovely and knowledgeable and showed us some truly wonderful sites. Our guide/driver down to the Sahara, Wadil, was simply amazing. His humour and friendliness were infectious and every moment of the trip was pure magic. I would recommend him a million times over for any kind of trip in Morocco, be it a desert adventure or trip around Marrakech."
