On the first day of our 4 Days Tour From Marrakech To Fes, we will pick you up from Marrakech at 8:00 am and then head south through the High Atlas Mountains and Tizi n’Tichka (the highest road pass). We’ll pause to take in the breathtaking landscape of the Atlas Mountains, see several Berber settlements, and enjoy a coffee or tea break in a quaint restaurant with a view of the mountains. 

We will continue to Ait Benhaddou, a spectacular Kasbah and well-preserved fortification in Morocco and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There were several Hollywood movies shot there, including Gladiator, Kingdom of Heaven, and Game of Thrones, to name a few. We go along to Ouarzazate, also referred to as the “Holywood of Africa.” Before arriving in Dades Valley, where we will spend the night in a hotel, we will first visit its film studios and Taourirt Kasbah, a historic fortified home, before traveling to Skoura, Mgouna Valley (Roses Valley), and other Berber communities.

The next morning, we will depart from Dades Valley and make our way to Todra Gorges, one of Morocco’s most beautiful and breathtaking gorges. Before traveling south to Erfoud, a small town famous for its fossil manufacturers, there will be breaks along the road for a walk through the Todra Oasis and then into the canyons. 

We’ll continue traveling further south while traversing the Saharian Oasis. You will have some time to recuperate depending on when we get to Merzouga before mounting the camel that will lead you on a desert adventure into the dunes where you will spend the night in a tent. The camel expedition starts in the summer at about 17:00–18:00, while in the winter, it starts around 15:00–16:00. 

You will reach the camp after an hour of riding camels, where you will be welcomed with a cup of tea as you take in the Sahara and the setting sun. Dinner will be served later at the camp’s restaurant tent, and locals will play Berber drums around the campfire for entertainment. Don’t forget to take a walk in the neighboring dunes where you may enjoy the starry sky. Keep in mind that there won’t be any sand storms, and the bonfire will be held at night during the cooler months.

On the third day, we’ll wake you up early so you can take in the stunning sunrise. After that, you’ll have breakfast, take a shower, and start the day. We have the entire day today to go on a 4WD excursion through the desert. Merzouga is a stunning desert settlement surrounded by beautiful scenery, Oasis, and abandoned villages. The first place we’ll stop is at Dayet Srij, a seasonal lake in Merzouga where we can see some flamingos and other birds with dunes in the background. 

The next stop is the village of Khamlia, where the locals are originally from Mali and Sudan. We will pause to take in the rhythms of the African music known as Gnawa music and possibly dance to them. After our tour, we’ll stop in one of their tents for lunch (optional), where we may indulge in a wonderful Berber pizza or sip mint tea. Then, we’ll continue driving off-road on the Dakar Rally road. Before we return back at the hotel in Merzouga, we will make a stop at a desert oasis. After a little break, you can stroll to the village or nearby dunes to take in the serene setting sun.

The following morning, after your breakfast and shower, we will depart for Fes. After passing through Errachidia, the main administrative center in the desert, we’ll stop to take in the expansive vista of the stunning Ziz Valley and its many palm trees. We continue on to Midelt, the city of apples, where we can stop for lunch. 

The Azrou Cedar Forest, which is home to wild monkeys, will be the next visit. It would be an opportunity to photograph the wild surroundings and feed the monkeys. They are wild creatures, so please keep in mind that they are not always present. As we continue on our way to Fes, we will pass Ifrane, also referred to as Moroccan Switzerland. We will arrive around 18:00 and 19:00 depending on the length of the stops along. The end of our 4 days tour from Marrakech to Fes.

FAQ About Morocco;

Yes! The tours our company offers are all completely private. This will allow experience Morocco the way YOU want to. In addition to that, you will of course be always welcome to request stops along the way during the tours, in order to take memorable photographs (or whatever other reason you want!).

In case you are interested in booking a group desert tour, please go ahead and contact us so as to make a suitable group tour for you.

Depending on the sort of accommodations you need or the alterations you would want to make to your personalized trip, we are completely adaptable. However, if any modifications are made at least two weeks before your trip with us, please inform us.

Actually, it could be quite the opposite. Our team makes sure to select the best quality accommodations for our clients, and those tend to get booked full pretty quickly, that’s why it’s not always easy for us to accommodate last-minute bookings.

Therefore, you shouldn’t expect a lower price for such inquiries, but instead a higher one maybe. To avoid such incidents, we strongly advise you to book your tour with us early on, so that we will be able to pick out the best accommodations for you and offer you an unforgettable Morocco experience.

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.
