Project Description

Marrakesh to Ouarzazate

Day tour starts from Marrakesh and ends in Ouarzazate.

Located on the trans-Saharan caravan route, Kasbah Ait-Ben-Haddou, inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List, is a traditional pre-Saharan habitat. It represents the southern architecture of Morocco by its earthen buildings and high walls. It is about 4-hour drive from Marrakech.
The tour will start from your hotel, and continue through the twists and turns of the mountain pass of Tizi n’Tichka, at 7414 ft. You will head towards one of the most spectacular Ksours (fortified village). The hilltop affords a wonderful 360° view of the area on all sides, including the valley.
Then, continue on to Ouarzazate, about 13 Miles, home of the Atlas Film Studios where popular movies were filmed, such as Lawrence of Arabia, Gladiator and The Mummy.  After that, you will break for lunch in a local restaurant with striking views of the old Kasbah of Taourirt. The palace where the last pacha of Marrakech lived. During the afternoon, you can visit the Atlas Studios.
Return to Marrakech at sunset.
