Early morning we leaved the city to get towards Atlas mountains. Guide Zekariya and driver took us from our hotel. On the we had a coffee break and then arrived to Argan Oil Cooperative on the road(good products). Midday started to visit Atlas Movie Studios its amazing. Afternoon we had a lunch not so delicious but it is ok. Last visit to Aid bin Haddou really interesting and historical also some scenes of movies were taken here, it is a Unesco Heritage Berberian village. Return to Marrakesh also about 4 hours but tour is reccomended to who wants to see and do in a short time. Thanks to Zekariya and our driver. 22/01/2023

This activity was very rich! Our host and driver were very kind. The organization was perfect, we have nothing to complain about. We saw beautiful things and discovered the authenticity of this region. We recommend this activity if you want to have a good time and see very beautiful landscapes.

The excursion was interesting with several stops. The first was for a photo of the highest point. Then for coffee, Third was for a shop that produces argan. Then we moved on to the Atlas studio. It's worth going inside. You pay for your entrance. They have a tour guide who tells you about the films and shows how they are made. After we finished we continued to eat and then we climbed the bin. It was a long journey across the Atlas Mountains. For those who do not like turns, I do not recommend it.
