Private Itinerary For A Day Trip To Ouarzazate

You will be picked up from your accommodation at around 7:30am and then begin the day by driving through the Atlas mountains, which have truly stunning landscapes, and are a great place to take some wonderful photos. Along the way you will pass through Tizi n’Tichka mountain and will stop for a break, where you can enjoy a beverage overlooking the glorious Atlas mountains.

Once you arrive at the Kasbah Ait Benhaddou (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) you will explore the ancient buildings with a local knowledgable tour guide. Many famous movies and series have been filmed here, such as Games of Thrones, The Mummy, Gladiator, Kingdom of Heaven and Lawrence of Arabia.

Either before or after your tour you will have the opportunity to grab some lunch at a local restaurant, as well as sample some traditional Moroccan tea.

You will then go to Ouarzazate and take a tour around the city and visit the Taorirt Kasbah with another local guide. Here you can also visit the famous Atlas Film Studios and take a look around.

Once you’ve had a chance to explore all these incredible places, will then begin your journey back to Marrakech. Expected arrival time is 7pm.
