Full description
This private full-day tour in and around the desert capital Ouarzazate gives you an overview of the film studios and different movie sites along with the opportunity to visit two ancient Kasbahs and a secluded oasis without hassle. You will meet your guide in front of your riad or hotel in Ouarzazate at 9:00 am. Start the day at the old kasbah of Ouarzazate named Taourirt where you will have some time to explore the narrow pedestrian streets on your own and visit the countless labyrinthine rooms of the palace. Afterwards, you can have a look at the movie museum just on the other side of the road. Continue to the Atlas Corporation film studios, where you can discover the diverse sets and listen to the anecdotes of the multiple movies and actors. Several famous movies like Gladiator, Babel, Prince of Persia and most recently The Physician have been shot in those studios. You can have a look at a fortified city wall which has been used in the movie Gladiator starring Russel Crowe and enjoy a panoramic view over Ouarzazarte which goes on until the snow covered Atlas Mountains. The next highlight is the ancient Kasbah Tifoultout 8 km outside the city. This fortress belonged to the family of Thami El Glaoui, Pasha of Marrakech from 1912 to 1956. A part of this old Kashbah is used as a hotel/restaurant, the rest is slowly crumbling into the red desert sand. You'll continue the trip to Oasis Fint, where you will enjoy your traditional lunch at a local family's home. You have time to explore the quiet and peaceful oasis at the river together with a guide and learn about the local life of the friendly inhabitants. Return travel to Ouarzazate and get dropped off at your hotel/riad in the late afternoon.

Magnificent experience, breathtaking landscapes. Embellished by the company of our guide Hamou Amdyaze a really nice person, available and attentive and at the service of his customers If it were to be done again I would sign immediately without any hesitation especially with the guide Mr Hamou Amdyaze and his very comfortable 4 × 4 vehicle and his natural smile and his knowledge of the history and culture of the different places visited. As is the case for the Auberge restaurant La Terasse des Délices: beautiful, clean and well maintained place. the owner is very friendly welcoming to listen as well as his employees and staff. Succulent and delicious cuisine and more traditional at attractive prices. Unfortunately I have not had the chance to sleep on site this time, but already planned to come back . Conclusion: Re-serve without hesitation and eyes closed.

Superbe visite avec un chauffeur attentionné et disponible. Mais alors que nous pensions que les entrées au studio de cinéma et le déjeuner étaient réglés, nous avons dû tout régler en plus. C’est le seul bémol.
