Very interesting visit, with the opportunity to admire wonderful landscapes. The guide Mostafa was very attentive, with good English and explaining various details along the way. The Atlas part is very interesting, just like Ben-Hadou, but the studios are also interesting for fans of the movies that were filmed there.

Realy great tour and great value for the price. We had nice and safe drive trough some exeptionaly beautifull landskapes. Also we visited movie museum, had lunch visited kasabs and had stops on a way for taking photos and toilet. I would recoment this tour.
