Getting from Fez to Marrakech independently often means a flight or self-drive via Casablanca—thereby missing Morocco’s deserts and Atlas Mountains. This 3-day private trip makes more of the journey, with camel treks and overnight camping in the Erg Chebbi dunes before stops at Ait-Ben-Haddou, the Todra Gorges, and Ouarzazate; and traversing the Atlas to Marrakech. Transport, two nights’ accommodation, and most meals are included to make everything easy.
  • 3-day private adventure through south Morocco from Fez to Marrakech
  • Enhance a Fez-Marrakech trip: private transport and sightseeing on route
  • Ride camels and sleep in Sahara; hike gorges, and cross the High Atlas
  • Desert camp and hotel stays; most meals, and hotel transfers included

Omar made this one of the best trips we’ve been on! We had so much fun, seeing more of Morocco than we imagined possible in three days. The long stretches in the car were beautiful and entertaining, and our guide’s care and attention made the whole trip amazing! Our favorite

My group of 12 absolutely loved this experience. Our driver, Zaid, was fun and easygoing. Seeing the Sahara dunes for the first time is like something out of a movie. The camel ride was a highlight of the trip, and the campsite was lovely. We enjoyed singing and dancing with our

Response from Happyfeettravel2, Owner at 3-Day Guided Desert Tour from Fez to Marrakech
Responded 20 Mar 2020
Dear Denise. Firstly, we wanted to thank you for booking with us, and for your flexibility throughout the process. We also thank you for this review which will give us the chance to explain the situation. There is a big difference between refusing to refund the deposit and not being able to do so even if that's what we would have loved to do. We just don't have the funds to refund all paid deposits due to the sudden travel restrictions and suspension of all our activities at once, the day the restrictions were applied, we were basically out of business and heading straight to bankruptcy in a matter of days or weeks at most. Our government is taking drastic measures to save small and medium businesses from reaching the no-return point and as you can imagine, the tourism industry was the first to take damage from the current situation and many service providers will not survive. So far, we haven't refused to refund your deposit, we have kindly asked you to be patient and understanding during these dark times, any client who has paid a deposit has the possibility to reschedule their trip with us up to a year time and your deposit will remain valid and deductible for any contracted service. We have also decided that once the activity is back to normal ( if we survive the fall !! ), we will gradually start refunding our clients who no longer have plans on booking their activities with us, it will take time and patience and solidarity from all of us to get through this unforeseen crisis, but our values and work ethics remain the same even during our worst moments. We promise you and all our beloved clients that we will honor our commitments as soon as we are able to. Best wishes and stay safe !! We will all get though this Ibrahim - Authentic Sahara Tours
