Day trip to Ait Ben Haddou

I will be in Marrakesh from May 15-18 and I was wondering if a day trip to Ait Ben Haddou is doable. If so, what is the best way of doing it and arranging it? Is there a tour that i could simply book, for example, at Hotel Ali.

If this trip is not doable, what would be another amazing sight to see that I could do in a day? Thanks in advance.

the trip to Ait ben haddou is doable in one day. It costs 100 euros for 1 or 2 peole in a private mini bus or grand taxi. You can make it cheaper if you don't mind travelling with other people. Whatever you do, the trip is worh it.

need further details feel free to ask

cheers

approximately how long is the journey? I wouldnt mind travelling with other people if it drives down the cost. How would I go about arranging something like that. Are there any organized tours that do this trip?

thanks.

the journey from Marrakech to Ait Benhaddou usually takes 3 hours and half.

travelling with others usually lowers the price. it will cost you 60 euros to travel through a travel agency with others compared to 100 euros if you travel on your own. So I guess if you're traveling with a partner it might be better to value intimacy and comfort over economy. Alone, however, it may be a little expensive for you.

need names of travel agencies feel free to ask

it would be great if you could provide me with some names/contacts for travel agencies. 60 euros, is that for one or two people?

thanks, greatly appreciated.
