The 3 day sahara desert trip from Marrakech to Fes is one of the most popular desert trips that connects the two imperial cities. This tour include a camel trek (optional) and overnight in bedouin tents in the desert camp. The tour covers the Tizi n Tichka Pass of the high atlas mountains, The Uneso world heritage sites, the gorges and the barbary apes in Azrou.

Airport to Airport Trip:

We believe that the charterers' holiday should begin and end at the airport and that the transfer can be turned into a pleasant advantage. No matter how many people in the group, we provide comfortable, air-conditioned modern vehicles to transport them.
Taking a 3 days desert tour to Merzouga is definitely very delightful but combining your tour with a stay in a Traditional Riad and a sightseeing day tour either before or after your Desert Tour will make it a perfect holiday.
