Journey to Agadir
This travel organization planned a terrific 5 days vacation in Morocco for us. Ali, our driver, was fantastic; he was always prepared to help us and stop whenever we asked. Aziz, our tour guide, was also incredibly friendly and helpful. He carefully answered all of our questions and gave detailed information about his country. The dishes were delicious, especially the Tagine & couscous. We love the way Moroccans eat. We arrived in a new culture that was varied and rich.
Merzouga Desert was the highlight of our 5 days excursion from Agadir. Riding camels and visiting the immense Erg Chebbi sand dunes, as well as sleeping in Berber tents, all highlights of our vacation. Thank you, Morocco expedition, for a great trip that I highly recommend!!
5 days excursion from Agadir
A terrific companion trip guided by our excellent guide, Hamid! As we begin the day in Merzouga’s desert, we get the feeling of being alone in the world!
We had a lovely tea break with a Berber family, where we talked and swapped ideas about local culture and traditions. We got back on the road and continued on our way to the Atlas Mountains. I’d want to repeat this tour! It’s completely unique and really rewarding! I’m ecstatic to have seen another part of Morocco only “a few steps” from Agadir! This is an experience I wholeheartedly recommend!
Tour of the Agadir Desert
Ali, our driver, was an exceptional individual. We were so happy with his customer support that we wanted to speak with him again after spending 5 days with him. We moved to a tent for the third day, which was spacious and featured clean and comfortable beds and toilets. There was adequate hot water inside this showers for two people. We spent the second day at a lovely hotel with a spectacular view of nature in front of us.
Every day, we enjoyed delicious Moroccan dinners. Every time we paused for lunch, the driver drove us to a wonderful, clean restaurant, and the food was delicious. Surprisingly, there was rental wi-fi available throughout the building. Thank you very much for the excellent services offered by Morocco Expedition.

Overview of Destinations:
Merzouga is a hamlet in southern Morocco close the Algerian border, so at entrance to a Sahara Desert, about 200 kilometers from Tinghir and 350 kilometers from Ouarzazate. Merzouga’s most prominent feature is its world-renowned sand dunes. Fortunately, you will be able to see it as part of our 5 days journey from Agadir.
It is near to the Erg de Chebbi, which has some of the most spectacular dunes in the Sahara as well as Morocco’s tallest permanent dunes. It is, together with the Erg of Chegaga, Morocco’s lone erg (or Chigaga). Merzouga is one of Morocco’s last towns before entering the Sahara, roughly 50 kilometers from the Algerian borders.
Merzouga is in a harsh, hot, and dry desert environment. The average temperature in the summer may reach 45 ° during the day & 25 degrees in the winter; however, temperatures in both seasons can fall below zero degrees at night. Pack something warm in your suitcase.
Rainfall is rare, but when it does rain, it is often strong & stormy. Merzouga has relatively little bad weather and has a clear sky, both day and night, making it ideal for astronomy.
Merzouga lies a few kilometers away from the Dayet Srij lake, which may be seen after going through the immense sand dunes. It boasts a beautiful view of the dunes and a profusion of animals. The peace that exudes from this amazing setting will captivate you. It’s a sight to witness pink flamingos or white storks floating over the blue of the lake, with the beautiful Merzouga dunes in the backdrop. This odd environment has a compelling allure. It’s unusual to see a pool on the fringes of the desert.
The Ouarzazate & Dades valleys join to form the Draa river, which runs through the city of Ouarzazate. It is the nerve center for the majority of southern Morocco. Ouarzazate evokes images of the High Atlas’ southern slopes as well as the desert’s closeness.
Ouarzazate does have a desert climate, with an annual rainfall of just 112 millimeters. Summer rainfall is limited and variable, if not non-existent. Temperatures are warm at night in the winter and hot during the day in the summer. Farming is only feasible because the Oued Drâa’s waters are used to irrigate agricultural land.
The city’s icon is the Taourirt Kasbah, that belonged to Pasha El Glaoui and was erected in the middle of the 18th century.
Ait Benhaddou Kasbah:
Kasbahs may be found in great numbers in Morocco. Ait Benhaddou is the biggest and most famous Kasbah stronghold. This property has been recognized a Unesco World Heritage Site since 1987. The Kasbah, on the other hand, was built by the Glawi family in the 11th century.
Furthermore, the caravan Touareg nomad who used to walk 52 days from Tombouctou are well known in this area. They came to sell salt since the location had a river called Oued El Maleh, with Oued denoting the river and Maleh denoting the salt.
That edifice has around seven storeys, each with a lot of clay and mud houses. The large one sits on the top, and it used to be where visitors who wanted to exchange salt would go.
This setting has appeared in a lot of films and television shows. Consider Gladiator, Kingdom of Heaven, and other titles. This destination is part of the 5-day itinerary from Agadir.
Morocco’s most popular tourist attraction is Marrakech. Because of its hue, it is also known as tourist city and the red city. This vast and majestic city, one of Morocco’s four imperial cities, is one of the country’s biggest and most attractive. It was designed in 1062 by Yusuf Ibn Tashfin.
The Jemaa el Fnaa plaza in Marrakech is well-known. In reality, snake charmers and Halka “street performers” may be spotted there. Because it is the city’s market or souk, you may encounter vendors selling a variety of things.
The Koutoubia mosque sits in the heart of Jemaa el Fnaa. It is also known as Kutubiyya & is Marrakech’s largest mosque, with a 773 meter high tower. Non-Muslims are not allowed in. The only mosque in Casablanca that permits it is Hassan II Mosque.
Majorelle Park is a beautiful park in Marrakech for art enthusiasts. French artist John Jacques Majorelle produced this Moroccan-themed art gallery. Remember that this lovely garden takes this French artist 40 years to develop.
