We were offered to take on the tour one day later to enjoy the best of the weather which we did. Our guide, Ahmed was great! He took us to some amazing places and showed us amazing sceneries. He told us plenty about Morocco, its culture and its people. He was more than happy to answer all our questions. He is a very skilled driver with a great sense of humour and offered to stop when we wanted to take pictures. We are not sure that Ouarzazate is really worth travelling to and visiting as except from a few studios which we could not visit, there is not much to see. We would have preferred to have more time to spend in Ait Benhaddou which was definitely the highlight of the trip. On our way back, Ahmed took us on a bit of off-road which was great fun. We would definitely recommend this trip and our guide Ahmed! This was definitely the highlight of our stay in Morocco!!

Everything was excellent. Our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful, we had plenty of free time to explore. Nothing was pushed on us to buy from local places. It was a long day so be prepared, although the transport was comfy if there had been 6 people it would not have been fun and for people in the back seats you need to have short legs, ok for me but would not have been fun if my husband would have had to have sat there.

Trip was cancelled due to bad weather.. But they recommended another day trip of the 4 valleys..
Had an amazing day in the Atlas Mountains.. Seeing snow, greenery..
The best was eating lunch in a local Berbers house! An absolute amazing experience

I booked in for this tour but once in Marrakech changed to the Three Valleys Tour instead and had a really enjoyable day out. Chakib, our driver and guide, was knowledgeable and friendly and truly made it a day to remember. What could only have enhanced this wonderful experience would have to been kidnapped and held to ransom by a Berber!

Fantastic experience all the way to the Atlas Mountains. Our driver and tour guide was fabulous. He was very patient and was an excellent driver going up and down the mountain range. Great experience in the desert and mountains.

Tour was good, but drive was long. Would be better if made into an overnight trip.

A long drive but worth it. Very helpful and knowledgeable driver. Exotic locales in the desert and beautiful scenery in the mountains. Ait Benhaddou is like nowhere else on earth.

Decent tour, but you are paying more for the driver ti take you around. He does not tell you about the history of the places. I don't mind thoufh, because we were in a small van and there would have been no other way for us to get to these places without a tour.

Beautiful drive thru the Atlas Mountains to get to Ouarzazate! Our driver/tour guide was great. He picked us up promptly at pick-up time and told us to take our time finishing breakfast as we were the only two people on tour that day. I felt bad for the guy, he drove us around for ten hours that day. Five up and five back and never once complained about the drive or his job. We were so impressed with our driver we hired him the next day for a Marrakech private city tour. We both tipped our guide $20 USD each which he was very happy to receive. The conditions going thru the Atlas Mountains were at times bad as it was mid-January. There was heavy snow in the morning, but cleared up going back to Marrakech late afternoon. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for an adventure!

Fine trip - journey of 4 hours to ourazazate over the Atlas Mountains was long and worth it. However, it's nowhere near the Sahara desert as the itinerary suggests.

Ait Benhadou was picturesque as well. Basically, it's 8 hours in the car for 3-4 hours of sightseeing. Not bad but not great either.
