Full description
Immerse yourself in the incredible Moroccan landscape on a private full-day tour to Aït-Ben-Haddou and Telouet. Ride from Marrakech over the Tizi-N-Tichka-Pass and get a glimpse of the way people have traditionally lived in the area with a bit of roadside chat. Visit a cooperative run by women in the Atlas Mountains, where the famous argan oil is produced by hand and organic delicacies and beauty products are sold.  Just before Ouarzazate, the gateway to the desert, enjoy the unique chance to visit the Aït-Ben-Haddou Kasbah. This little old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is perpetually used as a location for Hollywood films. Follow your guide on a 1-hour walking tour and hear about traditional life there. Stop for lunch in a local restaurant with a panoramic terrace in a newer part of Aït-Ben-Haddou and continue through the breathtaking landscape to Telouet. This fortress was occupied by Thami el Glaoui before he was expelled by independence efforts. One section has unfortunately disintegrated into red sand, but you can still visit the beautiful rooms with mosaic tiles and wood carvings. Cross the High Atlas mountains for a tea and coffee break and return to your accommodation in Marrakech around 19:00.

Positive points: the beauty of Ait ben Haddou and the road to Telouet, the friendliness of our driver Negative points: the driver spoke very little French, he gave us no explanation at Ait ben Haddou and Telouet he stopped us at the back of the building which looked like ruins in a dump without telling us that the palace was very beautiful and could be visited: we discovered it afterwards

The excursion went very well. Salem has been a very pleasant guide. His vehicle was very comfortable and safe given the road we took. Telouet is an amazing visit, you don't expect so much beauty once in the kasbah. Ait Ben Haddou is also to be discovered. They pick us up at the Riad in the morning, they drop us off in the evening, it's perfect. We recommend this trusted agency, we will contact them if we ever return to Morocco. Nevertheless, we remove 1 star because 130€/person is too expensive for this day trip.
