Full description
Start your day trip with pickup from your Marrakech accommodation from 7-8 AM. Hop inside your air-conditioned car and soak up the scenery as you travel into the Atlas Mountains. Your first stop will be at a small village called Ait Ben Barka near the amazing natural areas surrounding Toufliht. Explore the area with your driver and learn about the schedule for your trip, and the sights that you will see on your trip. You'll take a little break to enjoy the beauty of this natural landscape and get excited for the next part of your journey. The second stop on your tour will be the Tizi n'Tichka pass, 7,415 feet above sea level (2,260 meters).  Your third stop will be at Atlas Film Studios at Ouarzazate. This is the largest film studio in the world, famously featured in the TV series Game of Thrones. You will have the opportunity to visit the studios to explore on your own. You'll be able to learn more bout the actors and films that have been filmed here, and take some pictures of the unique Moroccan scenery in the area. After the studio, you will go for lunch at one of the best restaurants in the area, with excellent prices and stunning panoramic views. The next and last visit after lunch will be at the famous Kasbah Ait Benhaddou, recognized as a UNESCO site and one of the most extraordinary kasbahs in Morocco. You'll end your day of scenic views and memories by relaxing in your comfortable air-conditioned vehicle on your drive back to Marrakech. You'll be dropped off at your accommodation in Marrakech between 8-8:30 PM.

Walid (our tour escort) and out driver were both very professional accommodating. Walid went out if his way to make sure each member of our tour group was comfortable. It was a long but very enjoyable day. It is a must do for anyone in Marrakech for a few days.

First of all, our driver & guide (omar) made the journey a ton of fun and were extremely accommodating (which was good considering the drive did take up a good chunk of our day). We were pleased with our visit to Ait Benhaddou, and we loved the guided tour as it gave us some super interesting history of the city. However, we all agreed that Ouarzazate could have been skipped to allow for more time in the first city and a shorter day overall.

Very good trip. The journey is certainly long but contributes to the experience because of the beauty of the landscapes crossed. The cinema studios are worth seeing and the visit to the Kasbah Ksar Ait Ben Haddou is wonderful. A guide is not necessarily necessary, he didn't teach us anything.
