Day Tour from Marrakech via Atlas Mountains to Kasbah Ait Benhaddou

Day Tour from Marrakech via Atlas Mountains to Kasbah Ait Benhaddou:

One of the most beautiful excursions in Morocco is the drive from Marrakech to Ouarzazte. This wonderful journey takes you over the High Atlas Mountains through Tizi N’tichka Pass at an elevation of 2260 meters. The Pass offers superb views of both the mountains and picturesque Berber villages. Ouarzazte is located 190 km from Marrakech and along the way we will visit two famous Kasbahs: the strategic ancient Kasbah of Telouat and the exotic UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Kasbah Ait Benhaddou. We will also stop for lunch along the way. Another option would be a visit to Atlas Studios, the largest movie studio in the world and host to such famous films and television shows as Lawrence of Arabia, The Jewel of the Nile, The Mummy, Gladiator, The Man Who Would Be King, Vikings, Game of Thrones, and Aladdin, as well as several James Bond and Jason Bourne movies, or we could also visit the Kasbah of Taourirt in Ouarzazate before we drive you back to Marrakech. Drop off at your accommodation in Marrakesh early evening around 18:00.

Morocco with the best guide Hami!
If you want to see what Morocco is really like, then I suggest you use Trips to Morocco to plan your trip. Although I think some people could put together a trip through the country, you just wouldn’t be able to see it the way you do with Trips to Morocco. First they tailor your trip with a driver/guide to take you where you want to go and second, they even schedule local tour guides to give you information about each city you are visiting. There is no way we would have learned all of the varied history of the cities without them! Hami was our guide and all I can say is he is the BEST! Truly the best!! He took us to each city, made sure we were secure and gave us guidance on whatever we wanted to do. We changed our plans (at Hami’s recommendation) and stayed 2 nights in the Sahara and it was well worth it! Sharing Berber pizza, riding the camels to see the sunset and playing drums with everyone was so much fun! Although a friend of mine planned the whole trip with Trips to Morocco, I couldn’t have asked for anything more and was so pleased with the experience. The towns were wonderful to visit and having Hami around made us feel even more at ease. Loved visiting Morocco and learning about all the wonderful things the country has to offer. Just a great trip!!

Amazing Experience with Local Moroccans
My father and I coordinated with Mohammed to book a 7 day journey through Tangier, Fes, Erg Chebbi (desert), Marrakech, and Casablanca. Our driver was Ali and our guide was Ahmed - both of whom were excellent. They took care of absolutely everything including: food, accommodations, and tours. Ahmed and Ali were attentive to our every need and gave us a great history of Morocco during our many hours on the road. Strongly recommend this to anyone thinking of seeing Morocco!
