Marrakech, Morocco's city of light or the city that never sleeps, is one of the most famous. This city offers its visitors beautiful sceneries that will impress them. We dedicate a whole day to discovering the main interests of this city.
Because Marrakech is Morocco's fourth-largest city, you will need a local guide to tour the city. We provide the best local guides in Marrakech to explore the city's main attractions.
On this Second day of our 6 Days tour from Marrakech to the Sahara Desert, we will take you around Marrakech by a tour guide. We begin by the Majorelle Garden, one of Morocco's best and most lovely gardens. The origins of this location can be traced back to 1923 when a French orientalist artist arrived in Morocco and settled. As a result, this location has a distinctly French flavor.
Then, we will visit Menara Garden, another beautiful garden in the city. This latter is situated west of Marrakech and is close to the High Atlas Mountains. It provides charming views for both tourists and city residents who frequent it.
Our 6 Days Sahara Desert tour from Marrakech will take you to the Bahia Palace, one of the pretty monuments displaying magnificent Moroccan architecture. Following that, we will move to a variety of locations. Finally, you will visit Jamaa El Fna's beautiful square.
We will travel toward Boumalne Dades on the third day of our 6 Days tour from Marrakech to Merzouga. First and foremost, we will pass through the High Atlas Mountains. The road we will take is the Tizi N'Tichka Pass. Besides, it is approximately 200 kilometers long and curved. Along this pass live many Berber tribes whose source of income is from tourists, Argan oil, or having a large herd.

Today, after breakfast, we will continue our 6 Days tour from Marrakech to Merzouga. Firstly, we'll start with a short drive to Todra Gorges, known as Toudgha Canyons.

After breakfast in the camp, you will ride camels or drive a 4x4 car through the desert. Most people choose the car because it enables them to visit more areas. However, if you want to tour with camels, we can provide that.
To start, you will go to the Berber Nomads still living in tents, and we will learn about their lifestyle and traditions. The Majority of Nomads are 7 to 10 members and live on what nature provides. Their prime source of income is herding goats and sheep and selling them in nearby cities such as Rissani and Erfoud. The main thing that distinguishes these people is their hospitality and generosity.
