Wow, a wonderful day out and I would highly recommend this trip especially to a family. I guess I owe a huge thanks to Mouad our driver for a lovely excursion. 7:30 on the clock and nice shiny Merc 7 seater was Standing outside reception. A very well dressed gentleman welcomed us to his car, in which we were going to spend significant amount of time travelling that day. And it was as clean as it was outside. It was well equipped with Water bottles, wet wipes, paper tissues box and most importantly everybody’s life line, multiple/ sufficient charging cables. We started our conversation with introductory chat. He seemed very knowledgeable and gave plenty of insight into Moroccan life in general. We headed to Mount atlas and took our first stop to have a breakfast. A Moroccan bread with Argon oil and peanut +almond +honey dip along with Moroccan tea was a refreshing treat. We reached Ait Ben Haddou around 11, while taking few stops at scenic locations to take photos. There we met our local Hollywood actor guide who has featured in some of the iconic Hollywood productions in recent years, Gladiator and Game of Thrones to name among all. He took us through The kasbas in his home village Ait Ben Haddou and gave us lot of information about Berber way of life. After this we headed back to our hotel. Mouad literally sang and danced with us to Bollywood numbers to make this rather long journey very exciting and entertaining. I couldn’t thank enough to Mouad and Atlas excursion company for the memorable day trip. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 to Mouad and Atlas.

We had an amazing trip with my bestfriend. Thanks to our driver Mouad who was on time 7.30 is a very huge factor why I rated this 5. He is very knowledgeable! And never a dull moment with him. Also, a nice and huge Mercedes van very comfortable for the two of us. It was worth the 4hr drive going and coming back. I recommend this trip because of beautiful scenery of the Atlas Mountains. When we arrived at Ait Ben Haddou our local guide who he said played extra role in Hollywood movies is very patient to wait for us cause it took us a lot of time taking pictures. I appreciate it because this is a lifetime experience that we need to document. He took us to his home village the Kasbahs and told us Berber way of life. The local women hand made carpet and I am amused with local men paintings by putting the paper over a flame. We had our lunch the famous local food Chicken/Beef/Lamb Tangine. Our driver was patiently waiting for us. It rained in some parts on our way back to the hotel. Again, thank you for wonderful experience.

Could not recommend the trip highly enough. Long drive over the Atlas Mountains, but our driver, Ayoub, made sure to stop for breakfast / coffee and plenty of sightseeing opportunities. Ayoub played some of his favourite tunes and we shared some of our road trip classics so the drive was great fun!

Make sure you pack some travel sickness tablets - the winding roads make it hard not to get a little queasy!

Ait Ben Haddou was fantastic, well worth the drive. Absolutely gorgeous with a fascinating history including being the location for dozens of films.

Do yourselves a favour and book this day trip - and ask for Ayoub!

Our driver, Hicham, was on-time, friendly, and knowledgeable. The drive to and through the mountains was scenic and enjoyable, and we stopped a few times along the way for photos and bathrooms. Note that if you get motion sick easily, it might be a good idea to prepare accordingly.

Ait Ben Haddou was lovely, and it is easy to spend a bunch of time there walking around, taking pictures, and browsing local handicrafts. We didn't need all of our allotted time, and our driver was able to get us back to the Marrakech train station in time for the ~5:45pm train to Casablanca (rather than the ~7:45pm or later we had anticipated taking). Thanks, Hicham!

We really enjoyed the tour of Moroccan “Hollywood”! The guide was knowledgeable and interesting. Seeing some of the spots for Game of Thrones and Indiana Jones was really neat! Walking through the city there were interesting drawings and art pieces for sale. We rode a camel which was neat to say! It was really interesting to ask the guide cultural differences and understand them better!

A great day out in the atlas mountain with stops to take pictures and breakfast. Our driver made us feel comfortable and made sure we enjoyed the tour to the fullest. The guide in Ait benhadou was also sweet and shared many stories about movies that were shot here, he even showed us some pictures where he played small roles in them. The panoramic views were breathtaking

The day trip to Ait Ben Haddou through the Atlas mountains was very enjoyable, particulary because of Mouaad our driver. He was polite, puntual, well presented, fun and knowledgeable, and a very good driver. He allowed us to take the day at our own pace. I could not recommend him more highly. The mountains were stunning and Ait Ben Haddou was fascinating. The trip was the highlight of our stay in Marrakech.

My wife and I did a private day trip through the Atlas mountains to the villages of Telouet and Ait Benhaddou. Our driver was very friendly and knowledgeable. The drive through the Atlas mountains is not for the faint of heart - narrow roads, high speeds, steep cliffs, and crazy drivers. Not to mention cattle and sheep crossing. Reminded me of Death Road in Boliva!

We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel in Marrakech and the whole trip lasted 11 hours. So make sure you are prepared for that. Ait Benhaddou is quite far and hard to get to. He took us to a restaurant there that was a bit of a tourist trap, but very good nonetheless. It is cash only, so make sure you have enough! We didn't, but our driver let us borrow some money until we got back to an ATM at the hotel. There are no ATM's in or near Ait Benhaddou or Telouet.

Overall it was a great experience and the highlight of our time in Morocco. I would highly recommend!

Communication with the tour operator was excellent, they were very responsive and helpful during the booking process. Hotel pick up was done on time, but we were took to a meet up point where we switched buses and waited for about an hour before the start of the trip. The road through the mountains was very beautiful,with amazing views. However, the road is not in the best condition and the driver was constantly speeding up,making the experience a bit scary for the fainted hearted. There were 2 stops, one for coffee and one for pictures before reaching to Ait Ben Haddou. A tour guide greeted us and requested 40 dirhams plus tip ( this amount was not mentioned in the booking and we did not get a receipt for it). The tour lasted for about an hour, the location is simply amazing.then we had lunch -with a view-but the food was not impressive. Lastly, we were taken to Ouarzazate for a 20mins stop for pictures, followed by a speedy trip back.we left Marrakech at 8 am(7 from hotel) and returned at 8 pm. All in all, a nice experience that can definitely be improved.
