    if you are looking to experience the "real" Sahara desert while in Marrakesh you will need to travel a fair distance away from Marrakesh. The closest desert areas from Marrakech are Erg Chebbi near Merzouga, and Erg Chiggaga near Mhamid. I personally would go to Erg Chebbi because it has higher and more colourful dunes.

    Most of the tours depart from Marrakech, which is closest to the Sahara but even getting to the desert takes a pretty significant amount of time, so you will need at least 5 days. If you choose a one- or two-day tour, I don’t know how much fo the actual desert you’re going to see.

    Wherever you go in Marrakech you’ll find hundreds of tour operators offering desert tours...as the other poster said earlier they mostly range from 1 to 3 nights maximum. Whichever tour operator you go with, you should not pay more than $100 for a 3-day desert tour.
