Itinerary
Meet a driver at your hotel for the trip across the High Atlas Mountains, climbing the winding Tizi n Tichka road to the Road of the Kasbahs. The first stop of the day is Ait Ben-Haddou, a UNESCO-listed fortified city whose towers are decorated with geometric patterns. This is among Morocco’s most recognizable film sites, and if selected, you can sway through the city on the back of a camel; tour options with lunch feature a meal at an Ait Ben-Haddou restaurant.

Next, head to Ouarzazate, which long guarded the edge of the Sahara desert, and is now a favorite destination for filming movies in Morocco. Tour the Taourirt Kasbah, considered to be one of Morocco’s most beautiful kasbahs, then enjoy some free time to explore on your own before returning to Marrakech.

Worthwhile (but long) Day Trip!

TLDR: Drive is scary through the mountains, but so worth it! Except for the 4-hour drive each way through the scary, winding roads of the Atlas Mountains, we had the best time ever! Absolutely worth the day trip to see Ait Ben Haddou. Our driver,...More

In our case it started at 7:15 am from the hotel and ended at 7:30pm at our hotel. It's a long drive, around 4 h each way, a bit of visiting the kasbah and time for lunch. There are few stops on the way too, for toilet and... More
