Full description
Day 1: You will be picked up at the meeting point at Cafe France in Jamaa El Fna square. First cross the spectacular Tizi n’Tichka Pass of the High Atlas mountains. Pass through many Berber villages, and once in the desert, see the riverside oasis and barren hillsides which are clustered with Kasbahs. After lunch, drive further to Zagora with beautiful views of the Draa Valley. You will arrive there at around 04:00 PM and after a short break, ride camels into the dunes where you will spend the night in Berber tents. After watching a beautiful sunset, enjoy a fantastic dinner. Day 2: After viewing the most beautiful sunrise and having breakfast at the camp site, ride the camels back to the auberge. Drive back to Marrakech, again via Tichka pass. You will then be dropped off near Jamaa El Fna square between 7:00 PM and 8:00 PM.

I had a great 2 day tour from Marrakech to Sahara desert. It was a very pleasant trip. The driver was very friendly and safe. Everyone at the camp was very friendly and accommodating. I would definitely recommend it , and plan to do it when I come back to Morocco. Thank you team!

A very nice experience

The experience is really great, but there are some things that you need to know - it is jus 2 days, so you are in the hurry always, it is far from Marrakech - The starting seems chaotic, but I think is normal there :) - on the way there and back you have a stop in a Restaurant. They are quite expensive and the food is bad. - on the site says you can take your luggage to the desert, but we could not, just backpack. Luggage stays on the bus. But if you are clear with this things it is a really nice Experience. The way through the Atlas is really nice and it is really nice to spend a night in the tents. We had the luck to have a tent just for us 2. However be clear about the fact that the dunes are not larger as 2-3 meter there. That is not classic dune Sahara, but for 2 days they can not bring you further. I can just advice to do the trip, but keep in mind the negative things

Perfectly organized tour. Excellent service. Departure at 7.30 from Marrakech, they picked us up to the door of the Riad. Unfortunately we had to wait several tens of minutes of the latecomers and the temperature was not among the hottest ones .. long journey and first stop in Ait-Ben-Haddou with a guide. Unfortunately the minutes were counted and even the smallest thing is organized. Also at the Bedouin camp, excellent dinner and entertainment during the evening! Being December the rooms were very very cold (we expected it), we recommend that you bring warm clothes for sleeping and a sleeping bag because the blankets offered warm but are not necessarily enough. It was a good experience worth doing. Unfortunately, the stops in the countries with the guides have the minutes counted and the hours in the bus are long but if time flies in the company! Consider that the second day we return to Marrakech for 19.30 so the tour takes two full days !!
