The exciting Arab city of Marrakech was recently voted the best place in the world to visit by Trip Advisor devotees, and that's where you begin this short but fascinating Morocco tour which ends in Fes. Along the way you drive through the spectacular Atlas Mountains, stop at the town of Ouarzazate and visit its kasbah, see the lush Dades Valley and get the chance to explore a number of typical Berber villages. This three day trip makes a great add on to any holiday in this desert country.

Carry on through a colourful landscape to join the impressive Dades valley. After a picnic lunch continue through a succession of tiny villages to Erg Chebbi where you have tea with the nomads. Then at Lmardani meet camel-drivers ready to take you on a trip through the dunes. Watch the sunset as you head to your private camp where dinner is waiting.

Day 3: Merzouga - Midlet - Fes

An early start today when you walk to the top of the dunes to see the sunrise before returning to camp for breakfast in the desert. Then begin the long drive to Fes travelling north through the lush oases of the Ziz valley, through the French Foreign Legion outpost of Er- rachidia and on to Midelt, renowned for its minerals and fossils, where you stop for lunch. Continue through the Middle Atlas mountain range stopping at the alpine resort of Ifrane for refreshments before the final leg of the journey to Fes, where the tour ends in the evening.
