Tour description provided by Viator

On this full-day trip, you’ll cross the impressive Atlas Mountains, stopping for breakfast and photo ops, before arriving in Ait Ben Haddou. As one of Morocco’s most famous kasbahs and a protected UNESCO World Heritage Site, it has served as the set of many films and television shows, such as ‘Prince of Persia’ and ‘Game of Thrones.’ A guide will walk you through the grounds all the way to the top. Here you’ll enjoy a traditional Moroccan lunch, a visit to Atlas Film Studios, and memorable views of the river and valley.
The tour begins with an 8am pick-up at your Marrakech hotel. The drive is roughly 190km through the landscapes of the Atlas Mountains via the Tizi n’ Tichka pass, with stops for photo taking and to have breakfast. There will also be a stop to visit the town of Telouet and its ancient 17th century kasbah.  Next, the tour heads toward Ouarzazate to visit the UNESCO-protected Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah. You’ll walk the small streets of this historic site to get to the top where an incredible view of Draa Valley awaits. Here you’ll have lunch and then visit the Atlas Film Studios. A 3.5-hour drive back to your hotel follows, with an arrival in Marrakech at about 7pm or 8pm.
