Our 3 tour from Ouarzazate to Fes begins in Ouarzazate. When the first signs of the vast Sahara begin to appear, this is the gateway to the desert.
The Atlas Studios, which have attracted tens of thousands of tourists over the last two decades, are well-known in this lovely city.
There were scenes from Gladiator, Cleopatra, Alexander, and Game of Thrones filmed there. Not to mention that the location was used to film episodes from the TV program Prison Break.
This city is surely one of the most favourite destinations for tourists that come to visit Morocco to discover new things and new lifestyle.
Rissani is an optional stop on Unique Desert Tour’s Morocco desert tour. It is the site of the first Souk, or market, in the desert.
The latter is divided into four parts, the first of which is where you may purchase spices. Caravans from the south of Morocco used to carry spices from India to sell in the south, and they regularly stopped at Rissani’s Souk to exchange dates for their spices. That is to say, the majority of what you will discover there is from the African countries of South Morocco.
The second part is where you may buy and sell meat, fish, and other items.
Particularly fascinating is the last part of the Souk, known as the Donkeys, Sheep and Cow Festival.

The cultural city of Fes:
Fes was built on the banks of the Wadi Fès by Idrs I (east bank, around 789) and Idrs II (west bank, around 789) and is the oldest of Morocco’s four imperial capitals (west bank, about 809). The Almoravids unified the two sections in the 11th century to form a great Islamic capital. Under the Marnids, Fes reached its pinnacle as a center of scholarship and trade in the mid-14th century, and it has maintained its religious dominance throughout the years. The Treaty of Fes created the French protectorate in Morocco on March 30, 1912.
