The experience was super cool! Our guide Rachid Mazik was prepared, funny and a really lovely person. Also our driver was very good and pleasant. Ait Benhaddou is a wonderful place, it is completely worth visiting it. We had lunch in a local restaurant where we could apprecciate the true essence of the region. Summarizing, I really suggest to try this experience!

This was a personalized tour: just us and a driver/ tour guide who took us to distinct places. It's a long tour, but you get to see a lot of the rural countryside and of course the historic and iconic village where many Hollywood films were set. Our guide Aziz Taloul was an extremely competent driver who whisked us through the winding roads of the Atlas Mountains and the family home where we stopped to eat was charming and accommodating. The food was plentiful and delicious.

We just returned from a wonderful day trip to the Atlas Mountains from Marrakech. The scenery was spectacular as there were many photo stops along the way. A guided tour of Ait Benhaddou pointed out movies and TV filmed there including Game of Thrones. A delicious authentic lunch at a local restaurant was included in the tour. Our driver, Abdoul, was terrific! He made sure that our day was special making certain that all of our needs were met. He provided excellent commentary in well spoken English while navigating some bumpy treacherous roads. He even stopped at an ATM in busy Marrakech for us on the way back. I would highly recommend requesting Abdoul when booking this excellent trip
