Hosted by yasser didn't get the lovely drivers name difficult long roads to navigate amazing and friendly driver. Made lots of stops for rest and pictures. Opportunity to buy things but no forced sales or argan co-ops. My mum has health issues so didn't eat at the restaurant went to one steps away across the road for a sandwich and ice cream. Didnt feel pressured to do anything and everyone went above and beyond to explain our options and help my mum. Had an amazing birthday trip loved atlas studios. Ait Ben Haddou was apparently difficult in the heat we didn't get far my mum is elderly. Brilliant trip, possible to do in a day but very long. We stayed overnight in Ait Ben Haddou and travelled back to marrakesh at lunchtime. We were very lucky to have these two on our trip, lovely honest guys. Thanks so much x

our give was friendly and have us plenty of opportunities to stretch our legs as it was a long car journey. the movie studio was okay, the tour was a bit short, would only recommend this if you are staying in Morocco for an extended period of time and not there for a short trip.
