On the far side of the mountains the landscape becomes desert-like. Admire the kasbah architecture featuring turrets, grilled windows, and peach-colored adobe walls.

It was a long journey, not least because of the large road construction site. The driver was very attentive, the mountains and the two Kasbah's worth seeing. We saved the film museum. I would have liked to take a short detour to the solar power plant / solar tower Noor 3 (240 m) in Ouarzatate. Due to our limited knowledge of English and the equally limited knowledge of English of our driver, we were unfortunately unable to do this. PS: The guide in Ait-Ben-Haddou was somewhat unmotivated and taciturn.

I was not told anything about the meeting point. The customer care of Get Your Guide (very poor), only sent an email to the local TO (how to wash your conscience). Fortunately, I contacted the guy who took me the day before on another excursion. He made a call and was able to tell me where to find me. Apart from that, it's an experience I recommend: breathtaking views. Not recommended for those suffering from car sickness. A big hello to my friend Abdelslam.

Places of interest but next to no information or guide information

Great places to visit but no information on historical context. Site guides very very uninformative. Car transport dirty and poor condition. Missing seatbelt.
