The drive was scenic. Out of the 12-hour trip, 8 hours were spent driving/riding in a 4x4 SUV through winding mountain two-lane roads where the driver would make frequent passes to get ahead of the many trucks moving at a slower speed. The driver did make photo stops and bathroom breaks. The other 4 hours were spent as follows: one hour in the town of Ouarzazate either walking around and shop or visit the film museum, 30 minutes driving to lunch and 2.5 hours at the lunch place where there is an adjacent old town/ruins you may visit after lunch if you can take the heat. It was a decent experience but you should be prepared for the long drive in a car without air condition.
The tour bus and guide promptly showed up at our hotel. The tour took us to 4 closeby Inka ruins on the hill side. One of us had to pace slowly at one of the sites due to the high altitude but it was worth seeing the sites with a tour guide.
Tour bus and guide picked us up promptly from the hotel. The tour included a stop to the local indoor market that was interesting as we learned a little more of the local culture. The other stops are cathedrals, basilica and a museum.
