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.

Departure at 6.50 am without delay (indeed). Round trip of almost five hours with bathroom / coffee stops, Argan oil cooperative, photo breaks (absolutely necessary as the trip showed radically different views from the city, with the splendor of the mountains, up to the desert). Lunch at the hotel of the film studios in Ouarzazate (not excellent but not bad either) and subsequent guided tour of the studios (certainly interesting for fans, a curiosity for non-cinephiles). Then a short stop in Ouarzazate and finally a visit for more than an hour to the kasbah Ait Ben Haddou, nothing short of wonderful! (not for nothing UNESCO World Heritage Site) Along the return journey (about 4 hours) with return at 21. The driver and guide Mostafa was very nice and available to give us all the information.

It is a very long tour, there are many hours of transportation but it is absolutely worth doing it. Highway 9 is all affected by works and cuts but the landscape makes you forget everything. The normal food, the guide of the very nice film studios and wonderful Ait Ben Haddou
