Your 3 days tour from Marrakech will begin with an 8 a.m. pick-up from your riad or other Marrakech location. Passing through the landscapes of the High Atlas via the Tizi-N-Tichka pass, which is 2260 meters (7415 feet) above sea level, you will soon leave the city behind. Multiple breaks will be made en route to visit enchanting Berber villages.
This fortified village of Ait Ben-Haddou is a prime example of Moroccan architecture. The Kasbah has been featured in a number of well-known films filmed in Morocco, including “Kingdom of Heaven” in 2005, “Babel” in 2006, “Prince of Persia” in 2010, “Game of Thrones” in 2012, and “David Attenborough: A Life on Our Planet” in 2020. You will have sufficient opportunity to explore the interior of this ancient Kasbah.
After lunch, we will proceed south along the road of 1000 Kasbahs to the Dades Gorges via Ouarzazate, Skoura, and Kalaat M’Gouna’s rose valley. If we still have time when we arrive at the Gorges in the evening, we will travel to the incredible rock formations known as the monkey fingers. We will visit it the following day. Dinner and accommodation in a hotel.
The second day of your 3 Days Tour From Marrakech to Merzouga Desert will begin with a delectable breakfast, followed by travel to Tinghir, where we’ll stop at a panoramic viewpoint overlooking charming Berber villages and a palm-filled oasis. In close proximity to this location, there is a 300-meter-tall canyon called Toudgha Gorge; here, we will take a walk alongside this canyon.
Later in the afternoon, when we reach Merzouga, you’ll go camel trekking across the Erg Chebbi dunes. During the trek, you will pause on a high dune to watch the sunset over Erg Chebbi’s golden dunes. Then continue riding your camel to your camp, where you will be welcomed with a cup of tea. Then, enjoy some leisure time to chill out. After a delectable Moroccan meal, you will sit around a campfire with Berbers playing drums and telling tales beneath a starry sky. Spend the night in your private tent.
Today, it is highly recommended to rise early in order to view the sunrise from the close high dune. After a tasty breakfast, you will have the option of departing the camp by camel or 4*4 vehicle. Then, return to Marrakech by car. However, this time via the Agdez Valley, the longest in Morocco (1100 kilometers).
Feel free to request a stop whenever you desire. When we arrive in Ouarzazate, we will stop in front of the historical monument “Taourirt Kasbah” for photographs. You will have lunch here before traveling via the High Atlas Mountains to Marrakech. This 3 Days Tour From Marrakech to Merzouga Desert concludes with drop-off at your accommodation.

Morocco’s economy is heavily reliant on tourism to meet its financial needs. To put it another way, the Moroccan government wants tourists to feel comfortable and secure while spending their holiday and money in the country.
As a result, it devotes a significant amount of resources, particularly human resources, to ensure that all tourists are secure while in Morocco; this includes tourist police and highly qualified guides who have been accredited by the government after undergoing training.
In terms of extremism and crime rates, we can state that the occurrence of such crimes is similar to that of many European countries, as evidenced by several statistics: low and uncommon.
You could enjoy traveling on your own once you’ve learned your way around and been acquainted with the local culture. You’ll be OK as long as you’re comfortable with it and stay away from the shady areas.
It will also allow you to save some money. However, some destinations require the assistance of a professional guide; you will most likely realize this once you are in such a location, particularly that outside of towns, such as the desert, where you will need a guide to assist you with camels and other items.
We’ll ask you for a deposit to secure your tour with Morocco Arhal Tours once we’ve confirmed an itinerary that works for you/your group (tours shown on our website can be changed based on your needs). We ask that you pay the remaining balance of your trip reservation at the beginning of your tour in Morocco.
