Day trips from Marrakech

Since more than a decade, World Morocco Tours have been operating activity tours out into the desert that take you from your accommodation or hotel and back. The tours can be shared or private and last anything from a day trip to a four day excursion.
Journeys take place in the comfort of a professional driver in an air-conditioned vehicle and you and your party will be shown the secrets of the Moroccan desert with enthusiasm, courteousness and wisdom of the region.
The tours out of Marrakech will take you off into a quieter and more sedate setting. The hustle and bustle of the city and its noise will be left in the distance, as we head off out across the most marvellous places the desert has to offer. You and your party will witness the magic of the Ouzoud Waterfalls, Ourika Valley and the surrounding terrain, where palm trees and oases greet the party at every corner.
You will visit Kasbahs – like the famous one at Ait Ben Haddou (a designated World Heritage Site and a fortified Berber village). The coastal city of Essaouira can be reached within a day and the magic of this port will not be lost on anyone in the tour. Marrakech excursions can take adventurous types out into the desert for camel riding or quad biking experiences, if you prefer. The quad bikes will trial around the Marrakech Palm Grove region on the outskirts of the city.
The camel riding experience takes place in the Palmerai and you can be back at your hotel in time for the evening meal. There is so much to do on an excursion out of Marrakech. These adventures include dining
out on an evening gala at a Moroccan palace restaurant. You will be able to enjoy a show with fireworks, galloping horses and some delicious Moroccan dishes. The excursions will take you and your group back to your hotel after the event is completed. Among some of the most popular day trips out on a Marrakech excursion include the trip to the Kasbah. The Kasbahs at Ait Ben Haddou is perfect for those who can only afford the time to spend a day away. A day trip from Marrakech can also see us take in the marvellous and magical city of Ouarzazate – home to several film companies who use the Saharan settings as backdrops
