The journey is quite long (7 hours round trip) but it's totally worth it: the city of Ait Ben Haddou is sumptuous, it's like in the photos. I thought I was in Aladdin. On the other hand, I liked ourzazate less because the visit to the kasbah was much less interesting than that of ait ben haddou and in addition, the entrance is paying. Fortunately we stopped there only at the end of the day for 30min. Thanks to the driver and guide who were great. A day that will remain engraved forever

Was a little disappointing….. we ended up being in a bus for 8.5 hours. The whole excision should have been just 9. There’s was obviously an error in the bookings and it felt like we just got turfed in with everyone else. No commentary in the coach. The UNESCO site and the local guide however were fabulous

Very nice trip. Our driver Abdul made it very special. He showed us all the nice places, told a lot about the culture and history. We felt very welcome, also thanks to the guide at Ait Benhaddou. We would really recommend this trip with those guides.
