My husband and I had THE most magical and epic 3 day 2 night tour from Marrakech to the Merzouga Desert that exceeded ALL of our expectations!! Our tour guide, Mohammed, was such an amazing, knowledgeable, kind and wonderful tour guide who gave us the 5 star experience of a lifetime on our journey to the Merzouga Desert! We ate delicious local food and stopped at every place imaginable to take gorgeous sunset pictures while the whole journey meeting local artisans and experiencing ALL of the amazing and unique sights on the way and learning of the beautiful ancient Berber culture, history and cuisine. Along the way, you will have MANY opportunities to watch the art of the amazing rugs being made and their differences in texture and styles, the benefits of rose water and oils, enjoy the most delicious dates in the world, learn about and see fossils that are millions of years old, all while testing and turning through the old roads and sights on your way to the Merzouga Desert.
