Great tour guide sharing his knowledge. Itinerary was perfect and lunch was spectacular with an awesome view of Atlas Mountains in background. This is a worthwhile tour if you have some free time in Marrakech.

This is a great tour if your schedule is tight. During Summer the day is long so the tour can last longer. Ahmed, our guide and driver was amazing, he was very patient with us while we were touring the studios and visiting Kasbat Ait Benhaddou. We did not feel the road or the time while driving there and coming back to Marrakesh. We stopped when necessary for food and a break and he stopped for us to get beautiful pictures. He also took us to trusted places to shop when needed, and he recommended to take the shesh/shall to cover our heads which was a brilliant idea considering the hot weather in Ouarzazate.

Our driver Mostapha was friendly, chatty and informative. The trip itself was interesting and effortless but he made it much more enjoyable.

Mostafa was great and made the whole experience very comfortable. We visited the film city, kasbah in ouarzazate and Ait Benhaddou kasbah with good enough time for each l.
I would recommend skipping kasbah in ouarzazate as nothing much to see there rather use that time to explore film studio

Had a great time on this small group tour - 3 people and our driver. We saw villages, kasbahs, any place we wanted to stop our driver stopped - he explained the area, the way the country works, the importance of helping the small villages, the beauty of the country. Highly recommend.

My husband and I loved this trip. It was the highlight of our holiday. Yes the car journey was long, but through the most breath taking views, it didn't feel long to me. The tour guide Abdul was fantastic. He was so knowledgeable. He knew all the best places for pictures and gave advice on where to stop for food and how much we should be spending. He gave us so much information on everything in Morocco, not just what was related to the tour. We asked many questions and he had an answer for every single one. I feel Abdul made the tour what is was and was a fantastic guide. If you like stunning views, a bit of adventure and are pushed for time this day trip is perfect. If we were to go back I think we would have spent a couple of days in Ouarzazate which is a tour they offer and we would have got more out of the area. But for a day trip I don't think you could fit much more into it. To sum up we were rally happy with this tour.

Great Trip got to see a lot of the country side that we didn't know was there, the stops for breaks were clean and perfectly spaced. The Driver new the best places to stop for pictures. The Dessert portion was a trip and the Movie Studio Museum a must.

Very long day! Amazing views though, and so completely worth it. This is the second trip I had the guide for, he is fantastic, a real knowledgeable and friendly person. Brilliant day out, an absolute must do.

This was a wonderful day. It was worth the long trip through the Atlas Mountains in order to see the terrain on the other side. The guide was very knowledgeable and considerate and stopped when we asked and suggested photo opportunities that we might have missed. I loved this tour and this company. I would travel with them again.

I really enjoyed it and would recommend it to everyone. Just bear in mind it is a very long day and the return trip is painful. The highlight of the trip was Ait Benhaddou, but also the landscape and the several photo stops we had in our way there. In February the photos look amazing with the mountains covered with snow. If you dont mind the long drive you wont regret it.

What a great tour! Weather was perfect for a trip through the mountains and out to Ouarzazate. The local guide was very knowledgeable and made sure we were comfortable for the long trip. Plenty of stops for photos and chance to 'customise' our tour spending more time in either location

This was a long trip but the views going over the Atlas Mountains are breathtaking, Ait Benhaddou is brilliant and well worth the visit. This was a fantastic excursion

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 actually went on the 3 Valley's Tour as this one wasn't able to run. It was an amazing day out, our guide was amazing and he made it a day to remember.

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!

Due to weather conditions tour must be changed to a tour throgh atlas mountains because the road to Ouarzazate was closed. But very good alternative programme: I can saw what I suggested then.

Abdul was an amazing tour guide and great driver! He was very knowlegable about Moroccan history and culture. Driving through the Atlas Mountains was amazing and Abdul knew all the great spots to take for pictures. Walking up the kasbah was a great expirence. Be prepared for a very long day!

Nice way to spend a day outside of Marrakech away from the extreme heat and crowded streets. Our guide was helpful, inforamative and committed to our spending a good day. The Movie studios were marginally interesting, Ait Ben was a great example of Kasbahs of old. Interesting to see the topography.
