My wife and I just went on this super cool 2-day trip to the Sahara Desert from Marrakech! The tour company was awesome, they helped us with everything from the start to the end. Our tour guide, Youssef, was super smart about Morocco and answered all our questions, no matter how weird. He even joked that our driver, Mohammed, was the best in all of Africa, and let me tell you, the guy could seriously drive! Both Youssef and Mohammed were nice and made the trip a blast.

Five of us just went on a 2-day trip from Marrakech to Merzouga! We found a company with good prices for a classic tour. Everything was great – comfy places to stay, yummy breakfasts and dinners, and even a funny driver! Ali, our driver, grew up right in the Merzouga desert, and our tour guide was the son of nomads! He told us awesome stories about the desert.
