Fantastic Marrakch to Merzouga desert tour around 5 days

We booked a 5-day desert tour from Marrakech to Merzouga road trip we really enjoyed. We opted for an independent DIY desert trip and embarked on a camel ride into the desert. It was a great experience and well-managed. The services between Marrakesh and the Merzouga desert were top-notch. We also decided to include Casablanca for one day, and it was amazing. We highly recommend this travel agency in Morocco for Moroccan tours.
