Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This is a fantastic opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle of the medina in Marrakech and out into the Atlas Mountains! Seeing how little has changed since the 17th century is absolutely fascinating and well worth the early start!

Begin your small-group day trip with a pickup from your Marrakech accommodation. Hop inside your air-conditioned 4x4 or minivan and soak up the scenery as you travel into the Atlas Mountains. Learn about life in the mountain villages, and traverse the spectacular Tizi-n-Tichka pass, climbing to 7,415 feet (2,260 meters) on route.

Behold the vast Anti-Atlas region beyond the pass, and follow ancient caravan routes that linked Marrakech to the Sahara Desert. As you travel, hear about the merchants who traded slaves and gold along the route, and pass through desert hills, fruit groves and timeless villages.

After around three hours, arrive at Aït Benhaddou, known for its well-preserved, UNESCO-listed kasbah. Head inside (own expense) to explore the adobe-built houses and streets, and learn how the kasbah featured in movies such as Jesus of Nazareth and the first Star Wars.



Continue to Ouarzazate on the edges of the Sahara Desert. A bustling outpost with an impressive kasbah, the town is home to the Atlas Film Studios and starred in classics such as Lawrence of Arabia and Gladiator, and the cult TV series, Game of Thrones.



After a restaurant lunch (own expense) overlooking the kasbah, visit the Atlas Film Studios or Cinema Museum (both at own expense) to see some of the fading sets that appeared in Gladiator and other hits.

Afterward, return to Marrakech and finish your trip with a drop-off at your accommodation.
