I started this blog three years ago and had only begun to write it when I first met João Leitão. João is one of the oldest and most recognized Portuguese travel bloggers, who moved to Morocco in 2007 and became one of the leading experts in the region.
Anyone who knows João Leitão or has exchanged two words with him realizes that he is genuinely interested in others and is always ready to help, without often receiving anything in return. It’s so hard to find people like that these days.
His passion for Moroccan culture is well expressed in his writing and the project he started, along with his sister, Rita Leitão: Marrocos.com
With it, they set up a series of group travels through some of the major Moroccan cities and attractions. An incredible opportunity to get to know the “gateway of the African continent” in the company of those who know the territory as the palm of the hand.
The best of Morocco
And that’s what leads me to tell you about this fantastic tour.
Imagine yourself landing in the exotic city of Marrakesh, getting to know its streets and emblematic sites. Then travel to Ouarzazate, see the Kasbah of Telouet, the Ksar UNESCO of Ait Benhaddou and the incredible Gorges du Todra. And end up in the incredible dunes of the Sahara Desert. Sounds good, doesn’t it?
On this trip you will see all this:
Group Trip to Morocco> 7 Days> Marrakesh to the Desert
Day 1: Marrakech – transfer from the airport to the hotel
Day 2: Marrakesh, Telouet, Ait Benhaddou, Ouarzazate
Day 3: Ouarzazate, Erg Chebbi Dunes
Day 4: Erg Chebbi Dunes, Todra Gorges, Ouarzazate
Day 5: Ouarzazate, Marrakesh
Day 6: Marrakesh
Day 7: Marrakech – transfer from the hotel to the airport
Morocco for 430 euros… seriously?!
If you think that making a trip to Morocco can be challenging for your budget, then know that Marrocos.com organizes this tour of 7 days for 430 euros… yes, you read well: 430 euros!
Of course, the value doesn’t include the airplane ticket, but airfares to Morocco are nowadays more and more accessible and, altogether, you will find that it’s even cheaper than spending a week in some areas of your own country.
I confess that, as a rule, I’m not the biggest fan of group travel, but I can guarantee that, knowing João Leitão as I do, the dynamics of the expedition will be incredible and you may well bring from Morocco — as well as fantastic memories — friends for life.
Let’s do the math!
So, what is included in the 7-day program that will take you from Marrakech to the Sahara Desert?
- Transfers airport – hotel – airport
- Van (transport)
- All hotels
- Dinners (except Marrakesh)
- Camel ride in the desert
But of course, some things are left out and should be predicted in each traveler’s personal budget:
- Airplane ticket
- Dinner in Marrakesh
- Gratuities and tips
- Beverages, personal expenses
- Entrance tickets to museums and monuments
- Everything not mentioned as included
Actually, nothing special, right? And if you take into account the places you will go and the hotels where you will stay, the final value is entirely justified.
Having said that, what are you waiting for to book your next trip?
Editorial NoteJoão Leitão is a good friend, but I wrote this post because I truly believe that he’s the best person to accompany you on a trip through Morocco. The price of the tour mentioned in this post was the price presented at the time of writing. If you are interested, please contact João or Morocco.com for more information.
