It has been a wonderful experience that we have been able to share in a group with people from other places. The guide "Hamid" has been wonderful, a charm. Very attentive and always with a smile. A very pleasant excursion in which we have seen very different places. Thanks for today. Thanks to Hamid and his little one, to the driver, to the camels that have given us a ride through the desert and to my teammates. ❤️

The city was very cool. What was bad was that the tour of the city has to be done later and you can't walk through it yourself. You had to hop across the river and pay where there was a bridge a few steps down. The tour guide got quite rude after the tour when she was due for payment.

The journey is quite long (7 hours round trip) but it's totally worth it: the city of Ait Ben Haddou is sumptuous, it's like in the photos. I thought I was in Aladdin. On the other hand, I liked ourzazate less because the visit to the kasbah was much less interesting than that of ait ben haddou and in addition, the entrance is paying. Fortunately we stopped there only at the end of the day for 30min. Thanks to the driver and guide who were great. A day that will remain engraved forever
