Full description
Immerse yourself in the incredible Moroccan landscape on a private full-day tour to Aït-Ben-Haddou and Telouet. Ride from Marrakech over the Tizi-N-Tichka-Pass and get a glimpse of the way people have traditionally lived in the area with a bit of roadside chat. Visit a cooperative run by women in the Atlas Mountains, where the famous argan oil is produced by hand and organic delicacies and beauty products are sold.  Just before Ouarzazate, the gateway to the desert, enjoy the unique chance to visit the Aït-Ben-Haddou Kasbah. This little old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is perpetually used as a location for Hollywood films. Follow your guide on a 1-hour walking tour and hear about traditional life there. Stop for lunch in a local restaurant with a panoramic terrace in a newer part of Aït-Ben-Haddou and continue through the breathtaking landscape to Telouet. This fortress was occupied by Thami el Glaoui before he was expelled by independence efforts. One section has unfortunately disintegrated into red sand, but you can still visit the beautiful rooms with mosaic tiles and wood carvings. Cross the High Atlas mountains for a tea and coffee break and return to your accommodation in Marrakech around 19:00.

They are two very beautiful villages that are worth visiting. Regarding the guide, very dynamic and fun, he resolves at all times any doubt that may arise, he is very attentive to solve any need you may have and spoke very good Spanish. Regarding the driver, very cautious and respecting at all times the signaling, a very correct driving.

Día estupendo y conductor y guía fantástico. Omar fue en todo momento atento y nos enseño mucho sobre todo lo que veíamos, nos habló de tradiciones y costumbres y siempre en español. Las dos paradas más largas tuvimos la suerte de contar con Rashid y con Mohamed y más de lo mismo, fueron encantadores. Excursión muy recomendable
