How to visit Ait Benhaddou from Ouarzazate?We would like to go from Marrakech via Erg Chebbi to Fes by bus, but does this bus make any stop in Ouarzazate? How do we visit Ait BenHaddou from Ourzazate? And from Tinerhir how do we visit Todra Gorge? We are arriving by bus or train so we dont have car.

1Well you won't be arriving by train as there aren't any train lines south of the Atlas mountains. It's not easy visiting these places using public transport as you then have to wait around for the next bus.
The turn off for Ait Benhaddou is 20km or so before Ouarzazate. Tell the bus driver you want to get off there and he will stop for you. You will then need to take a grand taxi for the 12km or so north to ABH. Afterwards another grand taxi back to the main road and then onwards to Ouarzazate to catch the next day's bus, or catch a shared grand taxi for onward travel.
Similar for Todra Gorge. Get off in Tinerhir by the grand taxi rank.
