All dates shown are from and returning to Algeciras and are inclusive.
Clients meet at a suitable location, close to Algeciras. Vehicle, personal documents and ferry tickets are issued, questions answered, last minute shopping done and with that knot of excitement in your stomach we catch the first available fast ferry to…..MOROCCO…

These dates are in addition to any “Special/Theme” tours that we may also run to coincide with outstanding events such as the Imilchil Marriage Festival, Essaouira Music Festival or the Spirit of Fes etc. As exact dates for these particular events often vary from year to year we may not always include them on our schedule listing, but will forward details on request. But be aware that these events are often held in high summer…..so it’s bloody HOT!

You can if you wish link two tours together, with of course a suitable discount. Or, after a Desert Detours holiday continue, either solo or with your newly found Motorhome friends. Many clients in fact do just that.

Huge truck support vehicle………On most tours you will be accompanied by a custom built Mercedes U1300L Unimog 4x4 truck. So, in the unlikely case of need recovery is not a problem. The truck tows a one-ton trailer that not only carries supplies and catering equipment but also every type of tool we hope is never needed. On many tours we also use a second “runner/sweep” support vehicle.

Our European Tour Leaders highly experienced in their field coupled with their expert knowledge you can trust that they will provide you with the best possible service whilst on your chosen tour. You can rest assured that they will continue to work hard to ensure the best possible quality of everything Desert Detours offers.

One or more of these will join our tours. As well as everyday assistance and providing invaluable local and national knowledge we are also covered for Arabic and Berber as well as most local dialects.

Open Algeciras-Morocco return ferry…….Your open return ferry crossing is provided in the tour cost [ conditions apply ]. We use only the high speed luxury services. The open return means that should you decide to stay on in Morocco your return crossing is covered.
