Marrakech Desert Safari 5 Days

Overview of Marrakech Desert Safari 5 Days

The 5-Day Marrakech Desert Safari is one of the longest tours we have organized, as it rewards inquisitive travelers who like to spend more time in each city to better explore it and discover its grandeur. The trip covers a wide range of areas and monuments such as the Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou, Ouarzazate, the palm grove of Skoura, the Valley of the Roses, the gorges of Dades, Merzouga, Rissani ……, etc. You will have the opportunity to meet nomads who live in caves near Todra Gorges, ride camels in the Sahara Desert, stay overnight in nomadic tent camps and do many other activities. Our tours can be changed according to your wishes and interests.

    Meno male che abbiamo conosciuto Yassine!! Tramite un passaparola di amici siamo arrivati a Yassine. Non avrei potuto chiedere di meglio. Una guida molto informata, parla diverse lingue e sa tanto di ogni cosa anche non inerente al Marocco. Una persona educatissima e disponibile per ogni necessità. La frase che più mi ha fatta sentire serena è stata quella che spesso ripete “take your time” ….che altro chiedere durante un viaggio dove vuoi solo rilassarti!?? Yassine è la guida che assolutamente consiglierei, avevamo una bimba di due anni e chiaramente aveva messo a disposizione seggiolini perfetti, non ci ha fatto mancare nulla e la sua cordialità rimane impressa. Abbiamo fatto una giornata nel deserto di Agafay e un giorno intero con lui alle cascate di Sti Fadma. Grazie Yassine.Gaia, Raffaele e Sveva !

    3 day tour with Yassine Yassine promised us a trip to remember, and he sure delivered. - His passion for Morocco shone through as he shared his experiences and answered all our questions in our quest to learn more about the country. - His easy going, welcoming and fun natured spirit made us feel like a part of the Moroccan family.- After my 3-day tour, he even helped coordinate any new arrangements I needed during the remainder of my stay in Morocco. - there was one hiccup I had on arrival at the airport and his team quickly resolved the matter with ease- He gave us enough space to allow us to enjoy moments on our own - He is a Safe and reliable driver and was always on time- He ensured we had everything we needed and that all our requests were met (dietary, sleeping arrangements, shopping etc) - the length of the tour was managed with sufficient time so that we were not rushed and could have stopped whenever we wanted. - Good with the camera and always ready to take great photos of us- Hotels chosen for us were very beautiful, relaxing and comfortable and seemed to be in the ideal locations- it was great to have someone else do the planning for once I definitely recommend Yassine (Morocco Sunny Days) to plan your entire trip in Morocco.

    Amazing adventures with Yassine Yassine is simply the best to go on a cross-country trip with! We enjoyed a wonderful and magical experience going to the Desert Camp in Erg Chigage with him and an even more charming trip to port town of Essaouira. He's not just an experienced driver but also a lovely, kind and funny person - it's fun to be on the road with him. We always felt secure and well looked after as Yassine is very attentive and makes every journey or trip as comfortable and interesting as possible. We've seen and learned a lot during our travels with him and also enjoyed some great conversations! Keep up the amazing work!
