Imagine an old fort straight out of a history textbook, near Marrakech. That’s Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah!

My 2-day trip from Marrakech to Fes was unreal! Our guide, Moha, was the best. He wasn’t just showing us places, he was telling us cool facts and stopping to chat with locals so we could learn about Berber culture firsthand. The mountains were amazing, but what made the trip were the people – Moha, the hotel staff, and everyone at the desert camp. If you’re going to Morocco, Do this tour! Trust me, it’s epic!

We are a group of 5-person crew who had a 2-day tour from Marrakech to Fes adventure, and it was awesome! We found a good deal on a tour that covered everything. The camp was comfy, the food (breakfast and dinner) was tasty, and our driver, Ali, who grew up in Merzouga, kept us laughing with his jokes. But the real highlight was our desert guide – a real nomad’s son! He shared amazing stories that brought the whole experience to life. We’d recommend this tour!
