Are you dreaming of spending a mysterious and adventurous 10-days in Morocco? If so, the 10-day tour from Marrakech might be just what you are seeking.

The first two days of the tour will be visiting Marrakech, known as the red city. An imperial city and home to old mosques, palaces, and beautiful gardens. The third and the fourth day will be crossing the high atlas mountains towards the south, where you’ll be exploring the Berber villages, oases, valleys, and old kasbahs such as Ait Ben Haddou. Also, you will have the chance to walk through one of the highest canyons in Morocco, known as the Todra gorges.

One of the tour highlights is riding a camel deep into the Erg Chebbi golden dunes (Known as Merzouga desert), visiting and having tea with a nomad family in the desert, enjoying the sunset, sunrise, and the night in the desert. On the sixth and the seventh day, we will be heading back to Marrakech via the southern road and through a vast rocky desert, where you’ll be able to visit small Berber villages, local markets, and passing by large lush valleys full of palm trees.

The last three days in Marrakech will be a day trip to Ouzoud waterfalls, considered as Africa’s second-highest waterfall. A day trip to Essaouira, known for its quite old medina and as the windy city. On the last day, you’ll have free time in Marrakech before the Airport’s transfer.
