Sahara Desert
Today we enjoy a stunning drive were we will stop and visit the irrigation wells where you can see how the wells are made up from an intricate network of canals, dating back to the 14th Century and covering more than 300km. We then stop for a fantastic Moroccan lunch and a relaxing swim.

Relax on the beach or alternatively explore the UNESCO-listed medina with its various souks and woodcarving workshops. Any city gate leads to the medina, so you’re unlikely to get lost. The beach is in front of the Medina and there are plenty of cafés with terraces, both ideal for relaxing for a few hours. Blue doors and window frames abound as do the artists’ shops – buy a carpet or Thuya wood carving or sit on the beach sipping a mint tea as the sun sets.

The below testimonials are from our Dec 2016 tour and the itinerary has changed slightly for 2017.

Excellent organisation. Fantastic way to discover Morocco with its rich culture, history and traditions. Great value trip.
(Karol – December 2016)

It’s a brilliant trip for us to know and explore the world in another unexpected way.
(Keying – December 2016)

Overall, this tour was great. The tour guide Brahim and Mustapha were extremely nice. Best tour guides I have ever seen. The driver and vehicle were great as well. I love the camel trek and quad biking so much. If you can improve the quality of the hotels in Dades Gorge and Todra Gorge, it will be great. The rooms were super cold and the equipment very poor. Also, I think some of the meals were not enough for one person. It will be better if you offer more food.
(Zhao – December 2016)

It was a fantastic tour and well organised. I loved every moment of it!
(Xu – December 2016)

A longer trip eg: 10 days would allow time to explore the places we visit rather than being on the van all the time.
(Lesley – December 2016)

I just loved it! The guide Mr Mustapha, the Manager Mr Brahim and the driver were fantastic! Very professional, fun and accommodating. Will invite to join this tour to all my friends.
(Maria – Dec 2016)

I had an amazing experience on this trip! The combination of places visited and people participating made it very special to me. I would like to complement our guide Mustapha who did a great job of making the travelling so nice. Information given during the trip by both Brahim and Mustapha was very interesting and enriching!
(Svetoslava – Dec 2016)

The night sky of the Sahara was amazing but we didn’t know anything about the constellations. A printed sheet or a short talk through the main ones would be interesting to most people.
(Anne – Dec 2016)

We just recently completed the "Marrakech & Sahara - 8 Days" tour over the Christmas 2016 period. It is an excellent tour and we highly recommend it to everybody. Our tour guides (Mustapha and Brahim) and our driver (Mousa) from "Nomadic" were excellent in all aspects. Our group included about 18 people split between 2 Mini-Buses. Food was plenty and hotels were good to excellent for the prices paid. The December climate could be a bit chilly for some, especially during the evenings and early mornings, but it is certainly better than the scorching heat of the summer. Thank you for all those who have contributed to making this trip memorable to all of us. We will definitely recommend it to our friends and family.
(Jacques & Beatriz – Dec 2016)

The food choices were poor with tagines or skewers for the majority of the meals. WIFI passwords provided with hotel addresses would help those who cannot be offline for long.
(Janice – Dec 2016)
