Full description
Immerse yourself in the incredible Moroccan landscape on a private full-day tour to Aït-Ben-Haddou and Telouet. Ride from Marrakech over the Tizi-N-Tichka-Pass and get a glimpse of the way people have traditionally lived in the area with a bit of roadside chat. 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 little old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is perpetually used as a location for Hollywood films. Follow your guide on a 1-hour walking tour and hear about traditional life there. Stop for lunch in a local restaurant with a panoramic terrace in a newer part of Aït-Ben-Haddou and continue through the breathtaking landscape to Telouet. This fortress was occupied by Thami el Glaoui before he was expelled by independence efforts. One section has unfortunately disintegrated into red sand, but you can still visit the beautiful rooms with mosaic tiles and wood carvings. Cross the High Atlas mountains for a tea and coffee break and return to your accommodation in Marrakech around 19:00.

Het was een fantastische dag. De excursie was heel goed geregeld. De lunch was op een prachtige plek. Er werd op de locaties gebruik gemaakt van locale gidsen die super enthousiast waren en boeiend konden vertellen. Mohammed onze chauffeur was zeer vriendelijk Het was het geld meer dan waard

We booked this trip to Aït Ben Haddou because we were in Marrakech for only 3,5 days and we wanted to see the most of the city en it's surroundings. Well, we succeeded in that! Hassan took us on a trip through the Atlas mountains where we also stopped at an other Kasbah (castle) where there were almost no tourists to be seen. Afterwards we continued our trip to Aït Ben Haddou where he arranged for a local guide to show us around (also in his house inside of the old town!). Hassan made sure we departed early so we were ahead of other tourist-traffic and on our way back he made plenty of stops to let us take pictures and for him to take pictures of us in the beautiful surroundings. His goal is to take you to places that are less mainstream and give you a better feel of local life around the city of Marrakech. He also doesn't shy away from answering any questions you may have about Morocco and Moroccan/Berber culture. In conclusion; 5 stars! Tschüss! - Fatima 1 and Fatima 2

Hafid sprach perfekt Deutsch und hat alle Fragen, sowie Erklärungen von Land und Leute,uns bestens näher gebracht. Er kam uns pünktlich im Riad abholen. Der Fahrer Hemmi fuhr sehr angemessen und gab uns Sicherheit. Ait Ben Haddou und Telouet waren sehr sehenswert.
