Full description
Day 1: Marrakech – Telouet Kasbah – Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah Depart from your Marrakech hotel at 8:30am by air-conditioned vehicle and head toward Ouarzazate. Admire the majestic Moroccan scenery and small, tiered villages as you soar toward the High Atlas by way of the winding Tizi-n-Tichka pass. Continue on the meandering roads to the Telouet kasbah, an ancestral residence of the Pasha Glaoui of Marrakech. Enjoy a leisurely lunch at the historic kasbah, and then cross the Telouet trail, which used to be a trade route connecting sub-Saharan Africa to Marrakech. Once you reach the stunning red landscapes and green olive trees of the Ounila Valley, discover the Aït Benhaddou kasbah, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Take in a beautiful sunset from the top tower of the kasbah before sitting down to dinner and checking in for your overnight stay in the 3-star Ait Benhaddou hotel. Day 2: Aït Benhaddou – Ouarzazate – Fint Oasis – Marrakech Enjoy breakfast and then get back in your air-conditioned vehicle for the drive to Ouarzazate, the site where movies such as Lawrence of Arabia, Star Wars and Gladiator have been filmed. Take in the panoramic views and visit the ancient Taourirt kasbah, another UNESCO World Heritage site and home to two film studios and the Museum of Cinema. Explore the studios and continue on to the Fint Oasis, a beautiful palm grove made up of four traditional Berber villages. Visit a Berber house and enjoy Moroccan mint tea. Sit down for lunch then return to Marrakech in the late afternoon.

Excellent trip. Halid our guide was lovely, informative and arranged the schedule to suit us. The toilets and restaurants he stopped at were spotless. Our overnight stay was at Riad Tamdakhte - Amazing! Spotless, peaceful with view of sunset over the hills. Visiting a berber home in Ourika was a highlight and gave us a true feel of Morocco. I would highly recommend this trip to see Telout, Ait Ben Haddou and Ourika at a leisurely pace and really feel immersed in Morroco- a world away from busy Marrakech. One point however, entrance fees are not included despite saying 'included' on the website.

We had a great tour with Soukayna. She looked after us really well. It’s quite a long journey through the Atlas Mountains to Ouarzazate but we stopped at regular intervals. There were some amazing views. The Kasbah in Ouarzazate and Ait Benhaddou were particular highlights. The hotel was comfortable and the food was good. If we had known that there was a swimming pool we would have taken swimsuits.

The tour was great and Mohamed was super!

Experience was great as well as our guide Mohamed. The only issue we faced was realated to the hotel. As per email and agreements we were expecting one hotel while, just before the check in, they informed us that it was fully booked, so they booked a different one ... that was crapy (seriously!) I refuse myself to stay there and the agency was lovely to find a different (and much better!) solution.
