Full description
Depart Marrakech and drive along the scenic roads of the Tizi n'Tichka mountain pass in the High Atlas mountains. Make your way through the dramatic landscapes to the fortified city of Aït-Ben-Haddou, approximately 20 kilometers from Ouarzazate.

Explore the historical Kasbahs and earth buildings surrounded by high walls in the traditional pre-Sahara settlement on arrival. Marvel at a striking example of the architecture of south Morocco, where most people now live in a modern village on the other side of the Ounila River. Learn the history of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, where blockbuster movies such as Gladiator and The Mummy were filmed.  

Next, go to the Kasbahs of Taourirt and Tiffoultoute to explore the ancient palaces of the El Glaoui family in Ouarzazate at the gateway to the Sahara Desert. See one of the largest movie studios in the world, where films including Lawrence of Arabia and Babel were shot.
