3-Days-Tour with individual and personal touch

My friend and I had a wonderful time with Said on the Tour. By the way he is an excellent driver and moved us through very bad weather conditions in the mountains - lots of rocks, mud and water were on the streets and it was difficult to find an way through. However, he did it perfectly. BTW it was fun and exciting! He also told us a lot interesting things and gave us the opportunity to decide which spot we want to visit. Moreover, it with Marrakech Day Trips it was possible to book a individual pick up directly from the airport. That was really superb! Of course, also the sightseeing spots were fantastic. We really love to recommend Sahid and these guys!

Amazing experience

I have chosen Marrakech Day Trips to be our guide in the 3 day trip from Marrakech to Merzouga, based on the unanimously great reviews shared by previous tourists, which proved to be truthful. We met all our expectations and beyond. The most important aspect to highlight is the feeling of safety and comfort we had all along the trip, thanks to our good driver, Ismail. He also made the long hours of drive more pleasant by having a great music playlist and by sharing with us his passion for Berber history and Moroccon sociology. Thank you again for looking after us, Ismail! Nevertheless, this trip revealed to us the beautiful and authentic Morocco, which totally worth to be explored, even in more days if you have this options.

3 Day Tour: South of Morocco

We had the pleasure to do a three day tour to Tizi-n-Tichka, Draa Valley, Roses Valley, Ourzazate, Dades George, Todra George, Ait Ben Haddou and Merzouga. The tour was fantastic: The landscape is so diverse and stunningly beautiful, the visits to Berber Towns highly interesting, and the desert trip with camels to stay a night at a camp absolutely amazing. The pictures shown on the website are really authentic. Even more important: People in Morocco are great hosts, we experienced their great hospitality wherever we went. But above all: We had Idir, a perfect guide, who really made the tour unique. His knowledge about the history of the country, the people and the culture made the tour unique. He knew every little corner of the country, had stories about everything and made experiencing Morocco really easy. Last but not least: Idir is an excellent driver, which proved to be important especially on day three, where there is a very long trip back from Merzouga to Marrakesh. Thanks Idir, once again!
