Snoubi Travelling is a new company, and for the price I do think this was a good tour offering. Ait Benhaddou and Ouarzazate is definitely a worthwhile day out and, from the tour hub in the morning, I think the tour quality would be the same from most providers but at greater expense.
- Contact the day before from Snoubi Travelling confirming pick up-location & time.
- On-time pick up the morning of the tour.
- New, clean mini-buses for the tour.
- Well chosen, timely stops by the driver to enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the Atlas Mountains.
- Ait Benhaddou did not disappoint, amazing bit of history and beautifully preserved.
- Kasbah at Ouarzazate worth seeing.
- The driver was good.
- Follow-up from Snoubi Travelling actively seeking constructive feedback on the day.
- We were moved buses 5 times at the tour hub, without explanation, and departed 30 minutes late, an hour after arriving there.
- The air con on the bus wasn’t great.
- For being on a bus for 9 hours, it was cramped and uncomfortable. There were other buses with more legroom.
- The tour guide at Ait Benhaddou rushed us round and we spent a long time at a shop of his choosing after the tour and the lunch break was longer than the tour itself.
- We were only granted 30 minutes in Ouarzazate to enjoy the cinematography museum and kasbah.
- Our bus driver spoke very little English and kept reverting to Spanish (which I don’t speak).
