Disappointing to pay 50 dirhams as entrance fee and get a very poor guided tour - the guide said in total 10 words and could not tell much about the sites. The guide could make a difference, but he did not even try. Don't recommend!

They try very hard but it is honestly very poor. Hardly a day out and certainly not worth making a detour for

Dear David,

I would like to thank you for visiting ATLAS Studios and leving your comment on Tripadvisor.
Since your visit in summer 2012, we have made alot of efforts to make things better.
Most of these sets were built in the 80's and 90's and the weather conditions in Ouarzazate don't help much.
I hope that you next visit to Ouarzazate will be better than you first experience.

All the best

Supposedly the biggest studio in the world, it was neat to see the sets of movies I'd seen. Even something from this season's Game of Thrones. Take the tour!

Hello,

Thank you for visiting Atlas Studios while staying in Ouarzazate.
Ouarzazate studios are in fact one the biggest studios.
Games of Thrones shot in Ouarzazate few years ago for the first season. they came back again for the third season.
They are big chances that HBO will be back for other seasons and other projects.

Have a safe trip back home and We hope to see you again very soon.

This in no way resembles any of the studios in USA - but it was still an interesting tour: you literally walk through the remaining props and facades left standing after filming; some of these props make you feel like a dwarf. This studio lists films like Babel and Kingdom of Heaven on its résumé, and also boasts the castle built to film the previous season of The Game of Thrones - my husband could not stop taking pix! Unfortunately, we had to expedite out visit as a sand storm rolled in from the desert (painful!) , but that, in a way, enhanced the experience of visiting the studio.

Hello,

I'm very pleased that you enjoyed your studios tour while visiting Ouarzazate.
It was a very good experience for me to see all these sets being built step by step and one after the other to host all these great movies that took place here.
I'm very happy that all visitors can enjoy them as much as I do.
I hope to see all very soon. I'm certain that you will find other news sets on your next visit.

Best

This film studio in Morocco is the location of some very famous historical movies, such as Patton with George C Scott, Lawrence of Arabia with Anthony Quinn, Gladiator with Russell Crowe & Spy Game with Robert Redford & Brad Pitt. The settings are in a bit of disrepair, but work is being done to make the set ready for another movie. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.
