What to expect from 4 Days Marrakech desert tours?

Camel trekking in Morocco, across the soft curves of the sand dunes of the Sahara, is the highlight for many clients. For one 1night ‘overnight’ Erg Chebbi camel treks, meet your desert guide at the edge of the dunes and camel trek for 1-2hrs to a desert camp where the accommodation is traditional Berber tents.

Our 4 Days Marrakech desert tours testimonials

We just finished this 4-day desert trip from Marrakech to Merzouga and I can’t believe we were able to see and experience so much in such a short time! When we chose it, we really focused on experiencing the desert. And the desert is definitely the pinnacle of this trip (we are still in awe and can’t wait to share photos with our family).
But we did not realize how much more we would see and do, from seeing a Berber village to the Dades Valley. FYI, if you can, try to appoint Hassan as your driver.
We realized in part that the trip isn’t completely pre-programmed and that you definitely want someone who has a good network and cares a lot about your experience. Hassan was very professional and gave us a great experience.

We had a very good experience on our Marrakech to Merzouga 4-day desert tour with Go 2 Sahara. We were able to visit many different places that we wouldn’t have otherwise. We also met many different local guides in different villages during our visit which made the experience much richer. Hassan was a very good driver and even made a long drive on the winding roads smooth and easy. I didn’t feel as good as before, because of the many stops. 
Hassan was also flexible and adaptive in timing and stopping. He was also able to teach us a lot along the way and we learned a lot from him and really enjoyed our conversations with him. Everything from the various guidebooks to the evening entertainment to the stunning views was fantastic and well worth the trip.

We had a great time during our shared 4 days tour from Marrakech to Merzouga with Go 2 Sahara! Our guide Hassan was so helpful and informative that he truly made our experience exceptional.
All the other local camel tour guides were also friendly and helpful! we even got to go swimming in the afternoon – amazing considering the desert heat!
They also really accommodated the dietary restrictions. My sister is allergic to nuts and I’m a vegetarian, we never had to worry about food and everything we served was delicious!
Highly recommend this trip with Go 2 Sahara. Thanks again to Hassan for the wonderful desert trip!!
