  • Many thanks to Marrakech Expedition for giving us a lifetime experience! If you don’t have a lot of time in Marrakech, this two day one night camel trek is perfect for you. The two day trip was packed full of beautiful sights and experiences. Spending one night in the desert was a breath taking experience.

  • Ali, Hassan and Omar have been perfect! the trip was run very smooth, and communication with Ali was prompt and clear. Hassan and Omar were very helpful through out the journey. Special thanks to Hassan with his very informative explanation whenever we stop and we definitely have good laugh together!

  • This is a bustling place at night, so full of atmosphere and smells. There are African bands, storytellers, lots of food places and many many stalls with oranges piled high. We also had a caleche ride through the Jewish quarter ending in the square. So much more to see when the souk is quiet. A must do if in Marrakech.

  • My family and I enjoyed the tour with Marrakech Expedition 4×4. We visited Marocco from Marrakech to Sahara sleeping two night in the desert. Our driver Hassan was an excellent driver and he let us to see great desertic scenery.
