The Sahara and Atlas Mountains beckon from south of Marrakech, but experiencing them independently means hours of itinerary planning. This private 3-day tour makes things easy: with a private vehicle, driver-guide to ensure you cover the must-sees, and accommodation included. Trace the Atlas' mountain passes, see mud-built kasbahs, gorges, and rose-scented valleys; and as a highlight, ride camels and sleep in a tent in the Sahara’s Erg Chebbi dunes.

I would recommend this tour to anyone! Our guide, Mohamed, was outstanding. He pointed out things of interest along the way and even made special accommodations based on our interest. He was friendly and super helpful - he gave us tips on what to buy, what to avoid, etc.
