We had a great experience

We had a great experience with our guide/driver Oussama. He picked us up ( my mother, my husband and I) early in the morning ( 7.30) and we come back at 21. We went for a one day trip from Marrakesh to Ouarzazate. the time schedule was perfectly respected. we had time for everything, we had stop to enjoy in the Haut Atlas region, we had coffee breaks, we visited 2 magnificent UNESCO kasbah, Atlas cinema studios,had lunch in a nice restaurant, easy smart restaurant. it was an eccellent experience. fantastic day-trip, unbelievable experience discovering Adobe architecture. the car was comfortable, the guide was really helpful and professional. As a guide, a fantastic guide. As a driver a really professional driver. I definitely recommend use this company. I definitely recommend this one day trip. It's a long trip, but landscapes are spectacular and i think it's a good experience. I was really fascinated by ancient Kasbahs. It may be long, but it's worth it.

The tour as such is very interesting in terms of landscape

Actually Drive (see below) good car, very good driver, recommended, but advise warm jacket, because high passes! Negative: pickup on time but in a scrap car with a kamikaze driver! Approx. 1 hour waiting time at any collection point in the city in the cold and in exhaust gases. This time was missing at the destination, there were only 30 minutes (!) Available for visits! That's really a pity!
