Testimonials for the 5-day Desert Tour from Casablanca

What a five-day tour from Casablanca!

We got to Casablanca with my boyfriend in October and met Hassan and Lhoussain there!
From the start, they were very nice and careful to understand what we wanted. The transportation was very useful; we stopped a few times, and they were always ready for us to go off-road or stay longer. We had a great trip through the Atlas Mountains to get to the desert. While staying in very nice places, we stopped. We need to stress how great the guides' vibes are!

Merzouga was our next stop. We loved it—the beautiful desert, the Nomads, the Gnaoua, and the Berbers. Everything about it made us very happy, from meeting new people to having a great time. The trip is a big cultural shock, so you need to be ready for a lot of different things to happen.

Thank you so much for making our trip so great. Hey, Hassan and Lhoussain!

Great experience!

A truly amazing time in Morocco. Hassan plans the trips very carefully, quickly, and with a lot of attention to detail.
What can I say about him? He's really great! Aziz was ready for us. During our time in Morocco, we couldn't have had better company because he drove us to all the places we wanted to see. He suggested dinner because he knew that was the best way to connect with us and share his culture and country.
The views in the Merzouga desert are so beautiful that words can't describe them. You have to love it!!!! Very nice people there.

What a great trip! Thanks so much to the Unique Desert Tour team.
We'll be back someday!

The best tour company in Morocco!

From Casablanca, the five-day trip to the Desert of Merzouga was great. The site is great, and we had a great time with Ali's help. We were lucky to always value your skills and friendliness. If you give them lots of love, they do a great job. I strongly advise anyone planning a trip to Morocco to use this tour service.

An event of a lifetime!

Hassan and Ali know the most about tours and are the best trip guides. Wow, thank you so much for everything. Very careful, nice, and respectful, and I could go all day... but not for work. For these people, this is how they live, and you take one more minute to think about how you feel... You can get anything you want from them.

This service is great. That's all yours, and you can go anywhere and stop whenever you want. It would be an insult to say that. Without a question, we will have this experience again.

Highlights and overview of the 5-day tour from Casablanca

From Casablanca to Marrakech, our 5-day Morocco Desert Tour stops in Fes, Ait Benhaddou, Merzouga, and other beautiful towns and places. Here are some facts about these sites that you might want to know before you visit them.

Casablanca, the economical city

Spanish speakers say “Casablanca” means “White House,” and Arab speakers say “Dar al Beida.” Casablanca is the biggest and most popular city in Morocco. It is on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean, south of Rabat, which is the capital of Morocco. The city center is home to about 3.2 million people, and the outskirts make up the Grand Casablanca, which is home to over 4,000,000 people. With about 7.2 million people living there, Casablanca is one of the most heavily crowded places in the country. The biggest port in North Africa is in Casablanca, which is also the business and industrial capital of Morocco.

Fes, the cultural city

Fes el-Bali, an ancient city built on terraces, is in the valley of Oued Fes. The Fes el-Djedid hill is in the province of Fes, which is also known as Fez, in northern Morocco. One of the most important places for business in the country is the city. Making metal, leather, textiles, and pottery are the major things that the economy does. Craftsmen also make other things, like jewelry, scents, handicrafts, and rugs. Also in high demand were things grown locally. With 16 provinces, Fes is the capital of Morocco and the largest city in the Fes-Boulemane area.

Merzouga

There are 45 kilometers between Mergouza and Erfoud. Also, it’s only about 20 kilometers from the border with Algeria. It’s one of the last towns left in the area before the Sahara sands take it over.

The first stop on Erg Chebbi trips is Merzouga. There are fine-sand hills that can get up to 150 meters high. There are miles of brown waves in front of you. When you think of a desert, this is what you picture.

Merzouga has real Moroccan entertainment in the nights. Drums and beautiful folk dances go well with a tasty tagine, fresh-baked bread, and couscous.

After the desert, you should check out Dayet Srji. This salty lake west of Merzouga is home to many rare species all year long. People who like to watch birds would be amazed. This is a good place to see ducks, buzzards, and falcons in the spring. A lot of gerbils, desert foxes, and snakes and lizards can be found.

The Kasbah fortress of Ait Benhaddou

About 29 km separate Ouarzazate and the Ksar of Ait Ben Haddou. The town has walls and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A native Moroccan house made of mud bricks, like the Ksar, can be found all over the pre-Saharan area.

A lot of directors around the world really like Ait Benhaddou’s filmmaking.

Some movies that were filmed in the area are shown below: Alexander, the Gladiator, the Mummy, Jesus of Nazareth…

On the left side of the Ouarzazate River is where the Ksar is. A trade path from Marrakech to Timbuktu through Zagora ran next to it in the past. It’s likely that the Ksar was built in the 1100s. Still, there are still a lot of families.

When you walk along these old walls, you can’t help but think of things that may have happened here in the past. Ait Ben Haddou is a beautiful spot.

The red city of Marrakech

It is about 150 kilometers from the Atlantic Ocean and is one of the biggest and most important places in Morocco. Other big cities in Morocco are Casablanca, Fes, and Rabat. Because of all the tourists, the government built one of the country’s main airports on the edge of Marrakech so that it would be easy for people to get to.

You can pick from many places in Marrakech when you get there. A two-star hotel might cost €25 per night, while a five-star hotel would most likely cost at least €70 per night. It’s also possible to stay in a hostel. Offers start at seven euros and go up from there.

The tower of the Al Koutoubia Mosque, which is almost 80 meters tall, is a must-see for tourists. The well-known ruler houses can be seen in Medina, the old part of the city. You can also walk along the defense walls that were built in the 1100s and stretch for almost 10 kilometers. Nearby is one of the most important Islamic schools in North Africa. It was built in the late 1400s.
