Thousand Kasbahs and Desert tour 6 Days from Marrakech


The tour of the Thousand Kasbahs is a tour with a very suggestive name that does not disappoint: with it you will discover an area of special interest to the south of the Atlas where countless Berber fortresses are still standing after centuries of history. In addition, there will be time to travel to the dunes and the capricious rock forms of the desert. And on the way back, we will make a hole in the program for you to discover the fascinating city of Marrakech.

    Denisse O La mejor parte de nuestro viaje a Morocco!

    Desde el primer té hasta la el último desayuno, nuestra experiencia en Kasbah Azalay fue verdaderamente un sueño. Los hermanos y todo su equipo eran los mejores hosts. Tomaban tiempo para explicarnos sobre la cultura y la región, y darnos recomendaciones sobre actividades.
