It is a very long tour, there are many hours of transportation but it is absolutely worth doing it. Highway 9 is all affected by works and cuts but the landscape makes you forget everything. The normal food, the guide of the very nice film studios and wonderful Ait Ben Haddou

Very long journey but totally worth it. If you have limited time to visit southern Morocco and want a taste of the pre-Saharan part, take this tour. The landscape changes dramatically during the journey, from the plains of Marrakech, to the High Atlas Mountains to the gateway to the desert at Ouarzazade. Our driver Mustafa was very courteous and helpful. A visit to the Atlas Studios is a must for all movie fans.

Long journey but beautiful landscapes

Departure at 6.50am. Outward trip with stop for a swim, then a company that produces argan oil and 2 stops for photos. During the trip the landscape changes radically, from the city, to the mountains, to the desert. Very beautiful landscapes. We stopped to eat at the movie studios hotel in Ouarzazate after about 5 hours and a subsequent guided tour of the studios (lunch and visit included in the price). Then a short stop in Ouarzazate which instead seemed very beautiful to me and above all a visit of more than an hour to the kasbah Ait Ben Haddou which is wonderful! Long return trip (4 hours). Return at 21. The driver and guide Mostafa was very nice and available to give us all the information. The journey is long, I would avoid it with children, however it was worth it for me.
