Itinerary of 6 days tour from Rabat

Day 1: Rabat to Fes

We’ll travel to Fez after a delicious breakfast at the riad, stopping at Meknes, a city nestled among the Middle Atlas Mountains. We will make stops at many points of interest, including the Roman remains (Volubilis), which are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Continue on to Fes after lunch in Meknes. We will arrive in Fez in the afternoon and go to our hostel, where you will have supper and sleep.

Day 2: Visiting the sights of Fes:

Our one-day journey to Fes will begin in the morning from your hotel as part of our 6 days tour from Rabat to Marrakech. To begin, your Moroccan trip guide will pick you up to take you to the Madrasa Bou Inania. Abou Inan Faris created an architectural school in AD 1351–56. Non-Muslims are allowed to visit one of Fes’ sacred monuments. It was also a location where children were taught the Quran and other religious topics.

Second, we’ll go to Fes El Bali, which translates as “the ancient city of Fes.” The majority of the local Riads/hotels may be found there. Take the main gate, “Bab Boujloud,” to get there. Several well-known Souks and historic Moroccan sites may be found here. For example, the Al-Andalus mosque, the Medersa Sehrij, and others.

Finally, you and your guide will go to the Chouara tanneries, which are known for being the biggest in the cultural city. Many handcrafted leather goods may be found here. Only particular spices are used to paint the leather, and the wholes are dry by the end of the day. It is advised that you visit the neighboring roofs owned by the shop’s proprietors for the greatest views.

Another stop will be at the Jewish Quarter, or Mellah as it is known. It is a well-known location in Fes El Jedid that depicts the Jewish population in Fes via its early twentieth-century residences.

Finally, we’ll go to Fes to see the ceramic arts, where you can see men and women chop mosaic tile pieces and paint imaginative patterns on plates.

Fes – Ifrane – Ziz Valley – Merzouga Desert on Day 3


Our 6 days tour from Rabat to Marrakech will begin at your hotel or at the airport. We’ll pick you up and take you on a tour of the Middle Atlas Mountains, stopping at the most important sights along the way. On your trip to Ifrane, you will first be able to take in the scenery of the Atlas Mountains. Because of the architectural style of the Alpine area of Switzerland, the town is known as Morocco’s Switzerland. You will also visit Cedar Forest after touring Ifrane. This forest’s barbarian apes are entertaining and amusing. As a result, you will have a great time with them and take amazing images.

Second, we’ll travel to Midelt across lush terrain, passing nomads with their herds. We’ll take a lunch break in Midelt and enjoy the climate and mountain views. In addition, the lengthy journey through the mountains with its panoramic view will capture your attention. The scenery of Ziz Valley are much distinct from the preceding ones. Palm trees and classic adobe dwellings may be seen in this area. You’ll also get the opportunity to explore this valley, which is home to a palm tree oasis.

Finally, we’ll continue our journey to Merzouga, Morocco. You will be greeted with mint tea amid the desert. Then you’ll go on a camel trekking adventure. One of the most memorable experiences will be crossing the dunes and watching the spectacular sunset. In addition, you will have the opportunity to participate in boarding and local life. Locals will entertain you with drum music around the fire after supper, and you will spend the rest of the night beneath the stars.

Day 4: Exploring the Merzouga desert


A spectacular day journey in the Merzouga desert will be the second day of the 6 days tour from Rabat to Marrakech.
The employees will make it a point to get up early in order to see the stunning dawn over the desert. We will pick you up from the camp after breakfast to begin your desert day adventure. Our first stop will be at Khamlia village. It is a Mali-based community populated by individuals of African descent.

They perform traditional Gnaoua music for you to enjoy while learning about their history. We will also go off-road to the MIfiss mines. The location is a daily Berber adventurous labor site that is roughly 30 meters deep.

The nomads will be our second stop. It will be a fantastic opportunity to learn about their lives and experiences while sipping tea in a hand-crafted tent. You’ll also get a bird’s-eye perspective of the whole desert. Later, we’ll go to a Berber town for lunch at a typical restaurant serving Berber pizza.
Finally, we’ll travel to the hotel, where we’ll have free time to roam about and spend the night.

Merzouga-Daraa Valley-Ouarzazate on Day 5

After breakfast at the hotel, your 6 days tour from Rabat to Marrakech will continue. In this location, you will learn and experience a variety of topics. Rissani is a historic city known for its ancient market and traditional way of life. You’ll take a stroll around this local market and learn about traditional products and how the market is set up. Furthermore, you will witness how humans have dressed in traditional clothing from the beginning of time.

Later, we’ll travel to Draa Valley along the road. On our journey, we will pass through Berber communities and palm tree gardens. You will also have time to visit the Berber settlement of Nkob and see the scenery of the Draa River, Morocco’s longest river. Nonetheless, the Anti-Atlas Mountains provide stunning mountain vistas. You will have the opportunity to pause and take in some magnificent mountain views.

We’ll go to Ouarzazate after enjoying the drive over the Anti-Atlas Mountains. It’s also regarded as the “Hollywood of Africa,” since it’s where a number of films, like Game of Thrones, Gladiator, and others, are shot. You will spend the night at a Riad/hotel in the area.

Ouarzazate-Ait Bend Haddou-Marrakech, Day 6


Following your breakfast at your lodging, you will visit Ouarzazatz’s movie studio. You will tour the studio where the above-mentioned films were shot. Later, we go to Ait Ben Haddou’s Kasbah. Since 1987, it has been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site as Morocco’s biggest Kasbah. It is regarded as Morocco’s greatest example of architectural mud-brick buildings.

After admiring and exploring the Kasbah, you’ll travel across the High Atlas Mountains. You’ll get the opportunity to drive via the Tizi-N-Tichka mountain pass. You will also get the opportunity to pause for panoramic views and visit the Argan oil cooperative. It’s a fantastic opportunity to learn about the process of utilizing it to produce cosmetics.

Testimonials:

Morocco

Unique Desert Tours was approached in early November 2021 for a personalized trip during Covid hours. For our family vacation with six people, we decided to schedule a personalized tour. We contacted Rachid with our sightseeing requirements, and he was quite helpful in advising us on how to organize our personalized trip and suggesting accommodations, among other things. He made scheduling a breeze.

We met our drivers Chouayb and Younes at the airport when we landed in Casablanca; both would join us on our journeys from Casablanca to Agadir and finally Marrakech. During our lengthy travel, Chouayb and Younes spoke excellent English and provided us with local knowledge. They are both excellent drivers, and we felt comfortable and protected during our whole 9-day journey! They would pull over if we wanted to get out and snap pictures of camels on the route or use the restroom. They made our vacation that much more enjoyable! We'd use them again on our future trip to Morocco! Rachid, Chouayb, and Younes, thank you for making our family vacation so memorable!

Morocco 6-Day Customized Tour

I went on a trip and ended up with a new family!!

Unique desert Tours and a special trip they organized for me were fantastic. I don't know any of the Moroccan languages, and I was reluctant to come alone, but from the moment Rachid picked me up, he made me feel at ease and like family. It was only Rachid, our driver, and myself. Rachid spoke excellent English, was incredibly knowledgeable about the sites and culture, and was a wonderful guy in general. Guides in Morocco are paid a percentage on any purchases made by their guests. 

HASSAN disagrees, and he brought me to numerous locations to hunt for fossils and other Moroccan treasures, not to purchase them. I went shopping at Casablanca's market on my own, knowing what items should truly cost. He is completely trustworthy, and I have nothing but positive things to say about him. He booked me into fantastic accommodations in each of the trips, as well as one night in the desert. Totally amazing and well worth the money.

A Fantastic Company

Hassan and his staff were really helpful and compassionate, and as a result, I had a fantastic experience. It was my first visit to Morocco and I was going as a lone female tourist.
Rachid arranged transportation since it was included in my 6 day desert trip; they picked me up from the airport, drove me to my riad (I was nervous about the Medina because I had no clue where I was going), and were more than delighted to drop me off and pick me up.
My 6-day Saharan vacation was incredible; sadly, my planned tour was canceled owing to other people being unwell; nevertheless, Rachid made certain that I went on my trip and organized for me to join another group.
I don't normally write reviews, but I felt obliged to give this firm a five-star rating.

Adam R

A once-in-a-lifetime adventure!

My companion and I had a 16-day vacation in Morocco, and it was an unforgettable experience due to our great guides! Our tour guide was Mohammed, and our driver was Adnan. They took care of all of our needs and fulfilled all of our requests. We fell in love with them because they were so kind and lively. They even surprised my travel companion with a birthday party! Our native guides were very knowledgeable and helpful. We had a lot of fun with Ashfar, Hajar, and Rachid! Every day was a fresh and incredible adventure. Chefchouen and our journey to the desert were highlights for us. The hotels and riads were all beautiful, the cuisine was delicious, and the environment was magnificent. Unique Desert Tours comes highly recommended by me!

Highlights overview if our 6 days tour from Rabat:

Rabat:

Rabat was constructed in the 12th century as a rib (fortified monastery) by Abd al-Mumin, the first Almohad monarch, to lodge the warriors for his jihad (holy war) in Spain. He eventually abandoned his attempts in Spain in order to focus on the conquest of North Africa.

The location was dubbed Rib al-Fat (“Camp of Conquest”) by the third Almohad sultan, Ab Ysuf Yaqb al-Manr, from whence the current city gets its name. He also started building of a large mosque, of which the remarkable Tower of Hassn, its half-completed tower, still stands, and created the massive defensive wall inside which the contemporary town has formed. After 1609, the consolidated municipality of Rabat-Salé became home to a significant number of expelled Andalusian Moors, as well as the fearsome Sallee Rovers, the most feared of the Barbary pirates (also known as corsairs). Rabat was appointed the administrative capital by the French, and after Morocco gained independence, it was recognized as an urban prefecture, along with Salé; it presently covers 492 square miles (1,275 square km).
