We had an amazing trip to Ait Ben Haddou and Ouarzazate with our guide Lahcen. What was really impressive about his is his ability to speak multiple languages, so communicating with him in English was a breeze. Our day started with a convenient pickup from the bustling souks area near our Riad. As we journeyed through the striking Atlas Mountains, Lahcen shared fascinating insights about the mountains and the beautiful surroundings. And to our delight, he even treated us to some tunes adding an extra touch of enjoyment to the drive. During our route to Ait Ben Haddou, Lahcen made several stops, allowing us to capture the breathtaking mountain views in photographs. He also took us to visit an Argan Oil Women’s Cooperative, which was a lovely experience. Upon reaching Ait Ben Haddou, Lahcen organized a local guide who led us through the heritage site, sharing captivating stories and history.
Our driver and guide, Abdel, was truly exceptional. He skillfully handled both driving and guiding duties. He patiently answered all our questions and shared a wealth of information about Morocco and the Berber traditions. The entire day was captivating, especially the scenic drive through the stunning Atlas mountains. The visit to Ait Ben Haddou was delightful, offering us a chance to explore its beauty. Overall, it was an absolutely wonderful day.
We had such a wonderful journey, and our driver Amin truly made it an even better experience! He was incredibly patient and helpful, letting us take breaks and pause to enjoy any sights we wanted during our trip. He always made sure we were comfortable and looked after. His care made our first-time visit absolutely amazing, and we’re definitely looking forward to more trips like this in the future!

We had a really enjoyable trip that went smoothly. Everything happened according to schedule. Our driver, Ali, was incredibly friendly and made our journey so much more pleasant. He shared a wealth of information with us, making the time we spent in the car fly by and helping us ignore the twists and turns of the road. The places we stopped at between Marrakech and Ouarzazate were picturesque and perfect for snapping some photos. The restaurant Ali brought us to was excellent, serving delicious traditional food. If we decide to visit Morocco again, we’ll definitely get in touch to arrange a Sahara tour.
I want to express my gratitude for an amazing day trip from Marrakech to Ouarzazate. It was a bit of a long day, but the driver ensured a comfortable pace, and it was a fantastic chance to experience various regions of the country. We got to visit a world heritage site and the backdrop of many famous movies.
