        Approx. 3:30-hour trip

        We will start our full-day excursion from Marrakech at 8 in the morning, heading towards Ouarzazate. Along the way, we will enjoy the spectacular views of the valleys in the area and visit Berber villages known for selling semi-precious stones. As we continue south, the mountainous landscape transforms into a semi-desert. In this area, we will discover typical houses built with mud and straw.

        The most famous visit of this one-day tour from Marrakech is Ait Benhaddou Kasbah, declared a UNESCO World Heritage site, and one of the best-preserved fortified cities in the country. Its unique architecture and surroundings have made it an ideal location for filming many movies and TV series. Some of the fantastic productions that have featured this Kasbah include Gladiator, Kingdom of Heaven, Babel, Prince of Persia, The Mummy, and, of course, Game of Thrones (it is the city that Daenerys Targaryen visits in the last episode of the third season).

        During this 1-day excursion from Marrakech, we will take a panoramic tour of the city and visit the former residence of Pacha El Glaoui. Additionally, to complement this Marrakech to Ouarzazate excursion, we will visit Atlas Films Studios, where many scenes from the mentioned movies were filmed. This will allow us to discover the cinematographic importance of this region of the country.

        Our 1-day excursion to Ouarzazate and Ait Benhaddou will conclude in the afternoon at your hotel or Riad in Marrakech.

      Incredible Moroccan treasures

      My wife and I took the private Day Trip from Marrakech to Ait Ben Haddou and Ouarzazate, and it was absolutely worth it. The private vehicle was comfortable, and our driver was fantastic – very professional and knowledgeable about the history and culture of the area. Ait Ben Haddou was stunning, with its impressive ancient architecture and breathtaking views. Ouarzazate was fascinating, especially visiting the film studios. The private trip allowed us to take our time and enjoy the sights without feeling rushed. The entire experience was hassle-free. I can't recommend this trip enough for anyone looking to explore these incredible Moroccan treasures!

      Interesting experience

      The Day Trip from Marrakech to Ait Ben Haddou and Ouarzazate was incredible. Having a private car and driver made the experience so much more enjoyable and personalized. Our driver was punctual, friendly, and knowledgeable. Ait Ben Haddou is truly a sight to behold – walking through the ancient kasbah felt like stepping back in time. Ouarzazate was equally amazing, especially learning about its film industry history. The trip was well-organized, and we had plenty of time to explore both sites at our own pace. I highly recommend this private trip for a truly memorable day!

      Moroccan desert

      Driving through the Moroccan highlands to reach Ait Benhaddou was an experience in itself. The site is fascinating but gets hot, so morning visits are best. Our driver was great at explaining the history and helping us avoid the midday heat.

      Great exploration

      The escape from Marrakech to the desert's edge was both cultural and scenic. The Kasbahs are impressive, but be ready for some climbing. Our driver was courteous and shared tips on how to navigate the sites and avoid the typical tourist pitfalls.

      Desert trip

      Loved exploring the architecture and film history of Ait Benhaddou and Ouarzazate. The trip is long; comfortable attire is a must. Our driver shared interesting stories about each site, making the long drive enjoyable. Very satisfied!
