Arrival in Marrakech airport where you will be met by the On the Go guide and transferred to your hotel or Riad in the centre of town. Spend the rest of the day at leisure. Explore the vibrant Djemaa el-Fna square in the evening with the snake charmers, story tellers, food stalls and souks all in full swing.
Leaving Marrakech we drive through the Dades Gorge, an awe-inspiring valley which extends from the High Atlas to the Jebel Sarhro range in the south. The Berbers built many impressive kasbahs on the mountain steep and in the valley gorges for defence purposes. En route to Dades Gorge we pass many of the kasbahs and stop at one of the highest vantage points to enjoy a cup of sweet minted tea and take in panoramic views.
The morning is spent at Dades Gorge where you can choose to partake in a leisurely walk/hike through the simple local villages and foothills of the gorge. We drive onward to Todra Gorge, created millions of years ago, snaking through the rugged mountain range. Late this afternoon we visit the village co-operative where hundreds of hand made Berber rugs, kilims and carpets are displayed.
Crossing Jebel Sarhro, we enjoy lunch and a swim before travelling down to Erg Chebbi sand dunes, the start point of the mighty Sahara Desert. Mounting our subservient camels, they relaxedly glide across the desert sands as we happily photograph and take in the breathtaking scenery. We stay the night at an auberge close to the dunes.
Leaving the desert, we travel through the verdant Draa valley, along the route of 1000 Kasbahs, a beautiful landscape. We continue on to Ouarzazate, which African traders once used on their journeys up to Europe. Ouarzazate has a large film studio where films such as Alexander the Great, The Last Temptation of Christ and The Living Daylights have been produced.
After an early start we transfer over the High Atlas and make our way to Marrakech. On the way we will visit the world heritage site of the Kasbah Ait ben Haddou. You have tonight to watch the city transform into the evening in the square Jamna el Fnaa.
We will transfer you to the airport in time for your departure flight.
