This day trip takes you right across the chain of the High Atlas Mountains and over the famous Tizi N’Tichka's pass 1412 miles (2260 meters) high, the highest in the whole of Africa. All along the route you can see the Berber villages perched on the side of the mountains, sometimes hardly distinguishable from the mountains themselves…  

As you reach the far side of the mountains the landscape changes dramatically, becoming semi-arid and desert-like. Here is the Kasbah architecture with turrets on all the buildings, adorned with grilled windows and soft peach coloured walls. These traditional houses are made of adobe, highly suitable for the climatic conditions of the south.  

Following your journey through the beautiful valleys you will arrive at the ancient kasbah of Aït Ben Haddou, which is a UNESCO World Heritage listed site. After visiting the Kasbah you will then journey onward to Ouarzazate, world renowned as the Moroccan Hollywood because of the famous films which have been shot there, including the diamond of the Nile, Lawrence of Arabia, Sodome et Gomorre, le Joyau du Nil, Jésus de Nazareth, Kingdom of heaven, the Mommy, Gladiator, 7 days in Tebet, Alexander the Great, Babel…  

You can also take the chance to visit the Taourirt Kasbah, classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage listed site. You may also stop by a cinema studio if this would interest you…

    Great tour! Hamid was so amazing. He got us from the airport and took us straight to the riad. The next day picked us up for our tour to the Atlas Mountains and Ait Ben Haddou. He was from the area and gave us great information as we drove. He speaks great English and is fun to talk to. He even went above and beyond the next day when myself and my friend (both females) tried to walk to the souks and did not feel comfortable doing so we called him last minute and he fit us right in to his day and picked us up and dropped us off. We will definitely be back to tour with Hamid!

    Day trip to Ait Ben Haddou I highly recommend booking a private tour! Our tour guide/driver Hamid was awesome! He was very friendly, knowledgeable, and trustworthy. As two women traveling alone we felt very comfortable with him. We even called him for a ride the next day after we tried to walk to the Jemaa el-fna market and got overwhelmed. He found a way to fit us into his schedule and take care of us! He rocks! Our tour to Ait Ben Haddou started at 7am. The ride to Ben Haddou from Marrakesh was about 3 hours on beautiful mountain roads. We stopped at a shop that sells Aragon oil, where we got to see how the oil is made by hand! We got another guided tour of Ben Haddou that was arranged by Hamid. Was great to hear about the history. Included in the tour we got to stop at Atlas Cinema Studios and got to see where The Mummy was filmed. This cost 40 Dirhams. We also got to stop at another Kasbah which cost 20 Dirhams to enter. We got to stop the car as many times as we would like without any complaints from Hamid, to take pictures since one of us is a professional photographer. Hamid bought us some dates to try too and they were delicious! Overall the trip and experience was amazing! Hamid went above and beyond his role and we got a wonderful experience in Marrakesh. Definitely will be returning and calling Hamid!

    Very interesting excursion, absolutely recommendable. The excursion is already worthwhile because of the the landscapes are amazing. Especially the journey through the atlas was a very good experience and Ait-Ben-Haddou was great. It was a very long day, because the whole trip took about 12 hours, but everything went well and it was well organized.

    Ait Ben Haddou as destination is absolutely worthly- the journey is a little long (photo stops, breaks and delays in pick-up at the riad), Ait-Ben Haddou is an excellent Kasbah. The excursion to Ouarzazate takes a long time. The price was absolutely great, the bus driver and the tour guide were very nice. I would recommend the trip.
