Tours from Fes

Tours and trips that starts from fes to the desert and other several cities.

Fez (Fez to Merzouga desert tours)

The journey starts from Fez. However, the tour doesn’t leave the ancient city without exploring it’s landmarks. As we already know Fez is the oldest Moroccan city. Therefore, it’s a record of all the cultures and lifestyles that used to settle there.

The old Medina with all its walls and gates give this impression of safety. Fez has these walls to make it a safe haven for the king and his subjects. The old castles and buildings with their mystical Islamic architecture make the visitors feel as if they traveled through space and time to the middle ages. The golden age of Fez. During that period Fez was the first city in the world to establish a university, the thing that gives Fez its reputation as a city of science, knowledge and wisdom. The first university ever is Al Quarawin University, which was established by Fatima Al Fihriya. Not to mention the all the other monuments that this city has, and the modern lifestyle that this city has other than the more traditional.

Volubilis and Meknes (Fez to Merzouga desert tours)

Fez to Merzouga tours can’t miss the opportunity to visit this ancient Roman city called Volubilis. The Ruins of this old Roman city are there as a proof that Morocco was once, before it was an independent kingdom, a part of the Great Roman Empire. Thanks to Volubilis you’ll get the chance  to explore some authentic Roman architecture.

Not so far away from Volubilis is situated one of the most important cities in the history of Morocco, although nowadays it’s not as popular as Marrakech or Casablanca, still it’s one of the most beautiful cities of Morocco. The city we’re talking about is Meknes. The dynasty of the Sultan Moulay Ismail considered this city their capitol. They built all these monuments that keep a rich record from the past. The wall of Moulay Ismail is one huge proof of the power that this city used to have. Not to mention the majestic gates and Lahdim Square in front of them. This city is also host to an old prison that is like a labyrinth. It could be a good case subject of some spooky pictures.

The old medina of Meknes is also a must-visit, there are some old, breathtaking Riads, that must be explored.

Aside from the old aspects of Meknes, it’s also a modern city with fancy restaurant, bars and nightclubs that are always vibrating with fun. And the good thing about Meknes is that it’s not as expensive as Marrakech or Casablanca for example.

Discover Sahara Desert

You can discover the desert of merzouga with our tours that start from a several cities

Middle Atlas Mountains, Azrou, Ifran…

Some tours skip Meknes and go directly to the Atlas Mountains. The first stop then is a town that is considered to be similar to the cities of Switzerland. This town is called Ifran.

Ifran is at its best at winter with the snow. One highlight is the giant statue of a big lion. Photography is necessary at this point.

Next there is Azrou, the city that has the fastest access to cedar forests. These forests are similar to what you might find in a fairy tale movie. And at the right times of the day you can spot monkeys all over. One other Meddle Atlas stop is Midelt, which is considered the capitol of apples in Morocco. This city is also famous for its mines of beautiful stones, such as Vanadinite.

Finally there are these two stops which are the town Rich and Imilchil. Imilchil is a town that is known for its two lakes: Isli( groom) and Tislit (bride). The story is that these two lakes are filled by the tears of two lovers who were denied each other by their circumstances, so they kept crying separately until they filled two lakes

Ziz valley and Toudra Gorges (Fez to Merzouga desert tours)

Ziz valley is a wonderful example of how much the landscapes of Morocco are interesting. It’s like the perfect combination of valley, river and palm trees -which are a good symbol of this Moroccan region.

Another beautiful landscape is that, that you can find in Toudra Gorges. The narrow canyons, the heights, the water stream with the small fish and the mountain climbers, all of these elements are combined to give this place its wonderful atmosphere.

Merzouga and Erg Chebbi (Fez to Merzouga desert tours)

It wouldn’t be called a desert tour unless the tour visits Merzouga. This small town has become synonymous with with the desert. You can just look for Moroccan Desert on the internet and almost all the pictures are taken from Merzouga or the area around this twon. Although it’s not a big city such as Fez, which could be a disappointment for some. However, others will really appreciate the simplicity. There are of course stores, restaurants, fancy hotels and bars in Merzouga. So, no worries about being bored.

But of course the most important part isn’t the urban areas as much as the raw desert natural landscapes and how the people who inhabit this nature live their lives.

Some of the most obvious associations that we associate with Erg Chebbi Dunes are: golden sands, camels clear desert sky, beautiful sunsets and desert animals. However, these are only products of nature. Some human, and cultural aspects are for example the Berber tents where there are all sorts of fun activities, like eating desert food, burying the body under the sand, desert drum music, that can make people reach higher states of awareness… these and more activities.

The end of the journey will be in Fez where it started.

Arfoud, Errissani and other towns (Fez to Merzouga desert tours).

The 3 days private tour will take its visitors to many towns and villages. The most famous ones are Arefoud, where you can find fossils and even buy them. The other is Errissani which is famous for the high quality dates.

Merzouga and the desert (Fez to Merzouga desert tours).

Morocco desert tour has to go to Merzouga otherwise it’s not a wholesome experience. Merzouga is what you’re looking for when you think about camel trekking, watching the desert sunrise, riding desert vehicles, spotting desert animals and so on.

When you get there you’ll find camps with all the prestigious things that you can imagine in a desert plus drum musicians whose sole goal is to make your stay in there as enjoyable as possible.

Not to mention the traditional food and the parties that you can find in the fancy hotels of  Merzouga.

The choices that we can offer are as diverse as Morocco itself. Morocco is a country that never fails to fulfil every visitor’s curiosity and satisfaction.

However, there are some tours that are considered more popular among tourists for very good reasons.

This article is about the best Morocco private tours for the year 2020.

Tours from Marrakech

Tours and trips that starts from Marrakech to the desert and several cities

But first 2019.

In the year 2019, the tours that have shown to be the mostly enjoyed by the tourists were:

The tour starts from the very exciting cit, Marrakech. This city has all the standards of being a good tourist magnet. If you want a to get a good idea about the Moroccan culture and history plus modern Morocco, Marrakech is what you want to head for.

After leaving Marrakech the tour visits all the exciting places between Marrakech and Fez, which is a long journey by the way. Among the many places, there are these two famous filming sites that you might recognize from movies like Gladiator, The mummy, The Kingdom Of Heaven… the first is Ait Benhaddo and the other one is Ouarzazat.

Afterwards the tour visits the Moroccan Sahara Desert. The town Merzouga is where the desert magic the Morocco has happens, thanks to both, the nature and the lifestyle.

Then the trip heads towards Fez. But before that it will stop at gorges, valleys, mountains and many beautiful towns.

The second most favorite tour starts and ends in Marrakech and visits the desert in between. The tour shares a lot of similarities with the first one in terms of what it visits, although it doesn’t go as far north. However, the time that will be spent in the desert is longer than the first one, which is something good, because the desert is full of fun.

The third most favorite tour is a very big in terms of the geographical range. It starts first at Casablanca, the biggest Moroccan city, and the most important in terms of business and economy, as it has always been since long time ago.

Then the tour goes to a small proportion of the Moroccan north. Most importantly Chefchaouen imperial cities like Fez, Meknes and Marrakech. But before Marrakech the tour goes to the Moroccan Sahara Desert. However, after Marrakech it goes to Essaouira. Then back to Casablanca.

Discover Sahara Desert

The best Morocco tours for the year 2020.

For the new year 2020 our suggestions for good tours that our services offer will be  mostly what people already liked in the previous year. The tours that we already have mentioned are a very good choice for people who haven’t explored Morocco yet. We are very proud and pleased about these tours and also about the feedback that we get from the people who try these private tours.

However, we are going to suggest some places that aren’t giving importance in these tours from 2019 or aren’t mentioned at all.

The Moroccan North. This region of Morocco is very beautiful and the weather is very nice. Plus it has access to the Mediterranean Sea. Tangier is city that is appreciated worldwide for its history and role in the world. That’s why it’s considered an international city.

Another stop at the north is the blue city Chefchaouen. This city is all painted in blue. You just have to look for the blue city on the internet to look at how beautiful this city is, and you will be motivated to visit to experience the peaceful ambience this city has.

We would also suggest a visit to the very rich city Meknes. Meknes is a very underrated city. Although it’s not very different from Fez. It has an old Medina such as that of Marrakech and Fez, with narrow streets and old Riads. There also shrines and beautiful fountains, plus a huge wall that the ancient king Moulay Ismail ordered to be built for protection. Along with a huge gate called Bab Mansour, which is right in front of Lahdim Square, also  not far away from Karra prison, which is a labyrinth. Another landmark is the gigantic pool of water called Sahrij Swani. This city has also a very vibrant modern lifestyle where there are all these fancy restaurants, cafes, bars, hotels and nightclubs.

Meknes is not far away from the Moroccan Cedar Forrest and its beautiful two cities Azerou and Ifran. This region is really worth visiting. It’s considered to be similar to Switzerland.

Another place that isn’t far away from Meknes are the ruins of an old Roman city called Volubilis. This is a very rich region in terms of historical background.

Picking a list that could be considered a best list of Morocco tours for 2020 is an unfair thing, because saying that this desert tour is better than this North tour is like saying that oranges are better than apples.

However, it might be a good thing to visit places that most people don’t consider a lot. 2020 could be the year of exploring the the regions that aren’t visited a lot by tourists.
