Full description
Begin your full-day tour of the incredible Moroccan landscape with a drive from Marrakech through the Tizi-N-Tichka Pass. Visit a cooperative run by women in the Atlas Mountains, where the famous argan oil is produced by hand and organic delicacies and beauty products are sold.  Just before Ouarzazate, the gateway to the desert, enjoy the unique chance to visit the Aït-Ben-Haddou Kasbah. This ancient town is not only a UNESCO World Heritage Site but often a location used in Hollywood films and television series, such as Gladiator, Kingdom of Heaven, Prince of Persia and Game of Thrones. Enjoy a 1-hour tour with a local guide and discover what makes this little town so unique. After lunch in a local restaurant with a panoramic terrace in the newer part of Aït-Ben-Haddou, continue to Ouarzazate and enjoy the choice of visiting either the venerable Kasbah Taourirt and the Old City or the Film Museum on the other side of the street. Stop for a coffee or tea over the High Atlas and return to Marrakech.

It was a unique experience, we got to know more about Morroco, the rich culture, the friendly people and the delicious food. We wouldn’t have it any other way. Salam made everything extra special. We felt like we were local Morrocans for a day. Indeed it was a memorable experience.

Trip was very well organized. Punctual and with continous information on sights, safe driving and friendly service. Unlike many tours that force you on every shop along the road, we were now and then informed about possible stops for souvenirs and traditional crafts and decided to stop or not! Highly recommended!

This was an wonderful trip, right through the high Atlas! Our driver was punctual to pick us up, so we made a nice head-start over the busy roads. The sequence of the visits was excellent + we could at all time tell what we would like to do and what we did not want to do. If I had known before, I would have booked a multiple day-tour tot he Sahara with this company!
