The specialist team of Rough Tours is inviting you to an exotic world full of adventure and fun. We belong to an original Berber family of which the AIT ATTA ethnic group formed an important ethnic community in the southern regions of Morocco. The family lives in a small brown mud house village in the south eastern area.
Our life style has been both nomadic (moving from one place to another seeking green pastures for our cattle) and settled in our tajine mountain village 'Ramlia' practicing agriculture and experiencing opportunities of the new world, the world of education and schooling.
Nowadays, Rough Tours consists of well educated brothers from the University. Besides the local spoken languages Tamazight (Berber) and Arabic, our study was based on English, French and Spanish languages. Our research papers upon which we got our BA degrees were about tourism in both Merzouga and Ramlia.
Being interested in the tourism sector and thanks to our previous experience as tour operators
, we take the pride in presenting the best service of Moroccan travelling and holidays.

Sleeping and meals
Riads are the traditional homes of urban centers (medinas). These buildings are entirely closed on the outside and open inside around a central patio, based on the Arab-Muslim traditional model. They often have trees and fountains. The word riad originally means garden in Arabic. In the medina of Marrakech, you will find the greatest number of these fascinating traditional homes, but you will also discover magnificent ryads in almost all Moroccan cities. Spending some time in a ryad will make you travel in time and bestow a magical serenity to your trip.
These places are perfect to leave stress behind and start out your holidays in the best way.
Sometimes you want to gather somewhere, to benefit from those with which you travel, to take as much advantage as possible of the excursions and visits, so the ideal place and often the most central is the hotel.
To spend time close to nature and understand the traditions of the nomad populations, if you have foreseen a stay in the desert, don't hesitate to spend a night under the Berber tents.
A night in the desert also gives you the chance to admire the stars under the clearest sky.
