Marrakech Day Trips & Desert Tours


Hello, We have left Morocco on our vacation and had a wonderful time. I'm writing to you today to inform you that our guide on the Ait Ben Haddou day trip (Said Ait Rih) was beyond exceptional. His professionalism, and friendliness made our trip very wonderful. It is because of Said that we are already planning our vacation next year with Marrakech Day Trips. Thank you for a wonderful time.

-Scott Ferrara and Tara Gruber

The day trip to Imlil village and the Atlas mountain is highly recommended. It was a true experience of the Berber markets and lifestyle. The guide was very friendly and helpful. The highlight of the day was the mule trip up the mountain. The mules were very comfortable with the tourists and the mule handlers ensured a safe trip for everyone. A typical Moroccan lunch awaited us on top of the mountain where we could take beautiful pictures of the mountains and surrounding area. Tip: take a jacket for the cooler mountain climate in the afternoon. Do not miss this one! Tharina

We enjoyed two really nice trips with this super friendly guys, one to Essouria and one to the Atlas Mountains/Desert. They showed us their home country and brought us to amazing places. Price and service very good and you can choose where to go for lunch. We enjoyed a wondeful meal at the shore of a lake in the desert-mountains. Just can recommend that and the whole tour. And the quad-ride in the desert. ;-)
