We had an incredible adventure exploring the desert and Atlas mountains with Marrakech Desert Trips. Mohammed, our driver and guide during the 3-day desert excursion, consistently went above and beyond. While there was some time spent in the car, it was well worth it as we got to witness the diverse beauty that Morocco has to offer – from stunning views and local cuisine to charming riads, villages, and natural wonders. The camel ride against a backdrop of blue skies and the orange-hued desert was a sight to behold. Yet, the highlight of our entire journey was undoubtedly the Atlas Trek. Lahcen, our guide, was not only pleasant to be around but also prioritized our safety and maintained a suitable pace throughout. The second day, which led us to the Toukbal Summit, was a truly spectacular experience. It’s worth noting that you should be in good physical condition and comfortable with a bit of technical terrain. However, the reward of reaching the summit was absolutely awe-inspiring. A big thank you to Marrakech Desert Trips for providing us with such a delightful experience.
We embarked on an incredible journey, starting with our mountain guide, Mohamed, whose guidance was instrumental in helping us conquer the summit of Mt. Toubkal. His kindness and assistance were truly invaluable, and the views from the top were simply breathtaking. The second part of our adventure was led by Abdel, our guide and driver. He was remarkably kind and went above and beyond to assist us throughout the trip. His efforts were truly appreciated, and we’re incredibly grateful for his support. In summary, this 5-day trek and trip was an amazing experience, expertly organized by the company. We wholeheartedly recommend this adventure to others!
Incredible barely captures the essence of it. We were completely enamored with our personalized hike, expertly crafted by Marrakech Desert Trips and flawlessly executed by our always-smiling guide, Mohamed. I strongly urge anyone intrigued by the idea of delving into the stunning desert valleys flanked by majestic mountains, exploring ancient terraced fields and red-clay cliffside villages, and venturing through the rich juniper and pine forests of Morocco’s High Atlas Mountain Berber region, to give this a try. Highly recommended!
MDT orchestrated an excellent tour to both the Atlas Mountains and the Sahara Desert. The value was truly remarkable, and the accommodations and travel arrangements exceeded our expectations at every turn. While we did wish for more advance communication regarding gear needs for Mount Toubkal, we were fortunate to have an exceptional guide named Mohamed. He was incredibly friendly, spoke impeccable English, and made our experience truly memorable. If you’re considering taking this tour, I highly recommend requesting him! The desert experience was equally delightful, featuring camel rides during sunrise and sunset, along with comfortable accommodations.
Truly astonishing! Both our guide and driver were incredibly attentive and well-informed about the region. The views from the summit of Toubkal were simply breathtaking. The second day, descending, proved to be quite demanding, but thankfully, the guesthouse provided a wonderfully relaxing atmosphere. We spent time in the garden and enjoyed dining outdoors. Although the drive to the desert was long, it was made enjoyable by constantly gazing out the window at the picturesque scenery. Surprisingly, the desert accommodations exceeded our expectations in terms of luxury.
