Full description

On the far side of the mountains the landscape becomes desert-like. Admire the kasbah architecture featuring turrets, grilled windows, and peach-colored adobe walls. Continue to the ancient kasbah of Aït Ben Haddou, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Stop in Ouarzazate, known as Morocco's Hollywood. Movies filmed there including Diamond of the Nile, Lawrence of Arabia, Kingdom of Heaven, The Mommy, Gladiator, Seven Days in Tibet, Alexander the Great, Babel, and others.

It was a long journey, not least because of the large road construction site. The driver was very attentive, the mountains and the two Kasbah's worth seeing. We saved the film museum. I would have liked to take a short detour to the solar power plant / solar tower Noor 3 (240 m) in Ouarzatate. Due to our limited knowledge of English and the equally limited knowledge of English of our driver, we were unfortunately unable to do this. PS: The guide in Ait-Ben-Haddou was somewhat unmotivated and taciturn.

I was not told anything about the meeting point. The customer care of Get Your Guide (very poor), only sent an email to the local TO (how to wash your conscience). Fortunately, I contacted the guy who took me the day before on another excursion. He made a call and was able to tell me where to find me. Apart from that, it's an experience I recommend: breathtaking views. Not recommended for those suffering from car sickness. A big hello to my friend Abdelslam.

Mi mujer y yo fuimos de visita a Marrakech en el Puente de Diciembre de 2019, y contratamos esta excursión privada. Maravilloso Viaje, en el que puedes conocer el Marruecos que no ves en las guías: pueblos, gentes, paisajes... además de poder atravesar el Alto Atlas por el puerto de montaña de más altitud de todo el norte de África. Nosotros pudimos contar con la experimentada conducción de Abdessamad, del que podemos decir que, además de Gran Guía (nos ofreció explicaciones de todo aquello que le preguntamos y más) es un aún mejor conductor. Las carreteras NO eran en absoluto fáciles, más aún cuando hay que atravesar el Alto Atlas por una carretera en renovación y por un puerto de las características del alto de Tichka, y a pesar de ser mi mujer miedosa y yo desconfiado, en NINGÚN momento tuvimos preocupación alguna (de hecho, mi mujer se durmió en el viaje de vuelta, y para que eso ocurra, muy tranquila ha de ir). Mi enhorabuena a GetYourGuide por poder contar con Abdessamad.
