Marrakesh to Erg Chebbi 3-5 Day desert tours: What's the difference between the 3 options?

Please keep in mind that 3 days and 2 nights option is the minimum for this tour and we recommend to avoid this ooption especially between November and January when the days are shorter. It's a total of 1100km in 3 days, however if you are limited in time, this tour will be perfect to do a lot in short amount of time.
The 4 & 5 Day Desert Tours from Marrakech to Erg Chebbi and back to Marrakech are recommended simply because there are som many things to see an do besides camel trekking and a night in the Sahara desert camp, 3 day tour option can NOT cover everything. Arriving early to Erg Chebbi, enjoy a swim, visit the nomad living in caves, wander with a local guide in palmary or hike in Dades valley or Todra gprges, spend more time of sites, stop for a cup of tea with a Berber family...Etc
