Excursión de Ouarzazate y Ait Ben Haddou con carretera de las kasbahs
Un recorrido panorámico por carretera desde Marrakech por el puerto de montaña más alto del norte de África (2269 metros), Tizi-n-Tichka, donde podrá disfrutar de fascinantes vistas de las montañas del Alto Atlas. Poco antes de la capital del desierto, Ouarzazate, tendrá la oportunidad de visitar la famosa kasbah de Ait Ben Haddou, la fortificada ciudad de arcilla declarada Patrimonio de la Humanidad por la UNESCO. Con torreones y decorada con motivos geométricos, es realmente uno de los tesoros culturales del mundo. Se sentirá como un rey árabe mientras disfruta de un majestuoso paseo en camello de 20 minutos (opcional), que le llevará a un mundo donde el tiempo parece haberse detenido. Después de esto, podrá disfrutar de un descanso para el almuerzo en un restaurante típico de Ait Ben Haddou (opcional).
Desde aquí, continuará hasta Ouarzazate, que marca el comienzo del desierto del Sáhara. Visite la grandiosa kasbah de Taourirt, que perteneció a los señores de las montañas del Atlas, la familia Glaoui. Esta espectacular antigua residencia de Pacha Glaoui, situada en el borde de la ciudad por la carretera al desierto del Sáhara marroquí, se considera una de las kasbahs más hermosas de Marruecos. Consta de un laberinto de lujosas casas de arcilla y torres lujosamente decoradas. Después de algo de tiempo libre para disfrutar de una taza de té de menta o un café, viajará de vuelta a Marrakech por la tarde a través de las montañas del Alto Atlas.
Traslado de vuelta a su hotel en Marrakech por la noche, no solo con las fotos que haya captado, sino con historias y recuerdos personales de encuentros con los pueblos indígenas y la gran belleza y hospitalidad del desierto marroquí.

The local company used by Viator in Marrakech to conduct this tour is In Style Travel Events. Our guide’s name was Said, who was extremely accommodating and helpful, with a great sense of humour. He drew our attention to many points of interest along the very long journey (4 hours each way) through the beautiful Atlas Mountains. We stopped off at a couple of places enroute for refreshments and to take photographs at some notable viewpoints. Our first major stop was Ouarzazate, where we were handed over to our local guide, Muhammed, who had amazing knowledge of the Kasbah and the movies filmed in the immediate area. Then it was on to Ait Ben Haddou, where again our local guide was named Muhammed. We had a wonderful lunch at a small guest house/restaurant overlooking the old fortified Berber town across the valley. After lunch Muhammed took us on a walking tour through the Old Town, he even invited inside his summer residence (where he was born), which was a special treat. Even though this trip amounts to an extremely long day, these amazing historical monuments - well off the usual beaten path - are most definitely worth seeing. We visited during the latter part of October, which was still quite hot at around 83F, and but as it is a dry heat, very pleasant. Judging by our own experience, I would suggest avoiding the summer months when taking this tour. In addition I would probably recommend an overnight stay in the area of Air Ben Haddou, to break up the long journey through the Atlas mountains each way, and to take in more attractions in the area - such as the movie studios or Berber sites. I have no hesitation in recommending Said and In Style Travel Events to anyone wishing to see these amazing places.
Our driver navigated the windy, mountainous roads with expertise and gave us time to stop on the way for pictures and restrooms. We really enjoyed our guide Muhammad in Ait Ben Haddou, who was very informative and interesting. The village was very culturally unique and one of our favorite parts of our trip.
This tour was truly the highlight of our trip to Marrakech! The day was amazing, and well worth the 4 hour drive each way. The views of the Atlas Mountains on the journey were incredible, and our driver stopped several times for photos and snack/restroom breaks. Our driver, Ahmed, was very professional and knowledgeable. Our morning pickup was right on time, and the Mercedes mini-van was roomy and comfortable. One bit of advice is to take Dramamine (motion sickness medication) prior to the ride, as the curvy mountain roads can definitely cause motion sickness. We took Dramamine, and had a lovely day. The tours of the kasbahs were fascinating, with knowledgeable local tour guides. Highly recommend the camel ride -- the views from high on the camel were beautiful, and there was a surprisingly lovely breeze across the desert.
Had a very poor experience on this trip. Bus used seats 15 at max capacity and was completely full. Middle row seats are acceptable two seats on one side of the aisle and a single seat on the other. My wife and I were the last to be picked up and were wedged in the middle of a back row that seats four passengers. No visibility from windows due to seat height highly uncomfortable seating both in seat width and in seat length. Seating definitely worse than airline economy class cabin, with 8 hours during tour spent in this bad seat. If you plan to take this tour, make sure that you are not the last one to get onto the bus!! Or why take the chance, there are better tours to be had. Our tour the next day with another local company used a Mercedes minivan. As to the tour itself, the locations were interesting once on site and the guides were knowledgeable. Lunch menu was good. Be aware though that while the food is included, the drinks are at your expense.
The drive and sights were beautiful and our driver was professional and took good care of us. The only downside was the restaurant where we had lunch, which was pre-paid, in Ait Ben Haddou. The restaurant was a big tourist shop and service and food weren't very good.
Despite the long travel time 8 hours in total back and forth from Marrakech, I enjoyed this tour as I got to see the Atlas Mountains. Our driver, Ahmed, was accommodating stopping at different sections of the mountain range when we requested him to in order to snap some photos. The locations we went to were all jaw-dropping especially after knowing that most of these were used as filming locations.
