    Excursion Marrakech and the kasbah of Ouarzazate

    Day 1:Marrakech – Telouet – High Atlas Mountains – Ait Benhaddou – Ouarzazate

    Fuel up for a captivating day with a delicious breakfast at your riad in Ouarzazate. Prepare to be awestruck by the breathtaking panorama as we embark on a journey through the Tizi n’Tichka pass, soaring to an altitude of 2,260 meters (7,415 feet). The High Atlas Mountains will unfold before you, offering a dramatic and unforgettable vista. Taking a slight detour from the main route, we’ll venture off the beaten path to explore the magnificent Kasbah Telouet. This imposing structure was once the seat of the powerful Glaoui Pasha family. Step back in time as you explore its labyrinthine corridors, courtyards, and chambers, each whispering stories of a bygone era. Imagine the lives that unfolded within these ancient walls and the power wielded by the Glaoui Pashas. Continuing our journey towards the heart of the High Atlas, we’ll arrive at the captivating Ait Benhaddou Kasbah. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a breathtaking example of earthen architecture, its kasbahs nestled amidst a dramatic backdrop. Perhaps most remarkably, this kasbah is not just a museum – some families still call it home, preserving the ancient traditions within its walls. Imagine the unique way of life these inhabitants experience. Our final stop for the day brings us to Ouarzazate, a city aptly nicknamed the “Hollywood of Morocco.” This bustling center has served as a backdrop for countless films, from historical epics to modern blockbusters. Keep your eyes peeled for familiar locations as you explore the city. Tonight, you’ll have the unique opportunity to experience Moroccan hospitality firsthand as we spend the night in a traditional kasbah hotel. Imagine the ambiance of sleeping within these ancient walls, a fitting end to a day steeped in history and culture.

    Day 2:Ouarzazate – Kasbah Taourirt - Fint Oasis – Kasbah Tifoultout - Cinema studio – Marrakech

    Fuel up for an enriching day with a delicious breakfast at your charming kasbah hotel in Ouarzazate. Prepare to delve deeper into the city’s rich history and cultural heritage. Our first stop is the captivating Kasbah Taourirt, also known as “the hilltop kasbah.” This imposing structure was once the residence of the powerful Glaoui Pasha family. Explore its intricate courtyards, chambers, and decorative elements, each piece a testament to the family’s wealth and influence. Imagine the lives of luxury and power that unfolded within these ancient walls. Notice how the architectural details and decorative features continue to influence Moroccan homes, particularly in the south. Step into the world of make-believe with a visit to the Ouarzazate Film Studios. This sprawling complex has served as a backdrop for countless films, transforming Ouarzazate into the “Hollywood of Morocco.” Witness firsthand the sets, props, and studios where iconic scenes were filmed. Perhaps you’ll even recognize a location from your favorite movie! After the excitement of the film studios, we’ll trade the bustling city for the serene tranquility of the Fint Oasis. Embark on a captivating hour-long walk amidst a verdant paradise – palm trees swaying gently in the breeze, crystal-clear water flowing through the heart of the oasis. Imagine the life-giving sustenance this oasis provides to the surrounding communities. Prepare to be warmly welcomed by the locals as we have the opportunity to visit one of their homes and enjoy a traditional cup of tea. This is a unique chance to gain an authentic glimpse into the lives of the oasis dwellers, their customs, and their way of life. Imagine the stories they have to share and the sense of community that thrives within the oasis. As the day draws to a close, we’ll bid farewell to Ouarzazate and the captivating Fint Oasis. Our journey takes us back towards Marrakech, traversing the majestic High Atlas Mountains once again. As you wind your way through the mountain passes, take a moment to cherish the breathtaking scenery and the unforgettable experiences of the past few days.

    Favoloso Fantastica avventura di 8 giorno da Meknes a Marrakech passando per Fez, deserto e Atlas. Organizzazione fantastica, il driver Mohamed è stato una meravigliosa guida, pause pranzo in ristoranti non turistici fantastici! Consiglio a tutti colore che vogliono passare un settimana rilassante e allo stesso tempo visitare luoghi ancora genuini e panorami mozzafiato. Grazie ancora!

    Great excursion, great guide! We went on a 5-day excursion with Marrakech Expedition, from Marrakech to the desert near Merzouga and back. Everything was very well planned, we were taken to the main sites and places, all the hotels they booked for us were excellent. Our guide, Mohammed was really great, an expert driver and a great guy to talk to, we really enjoyed the time we spent travelling with him. Highly recommended!

    Great! We travelled with our two little kids, 3 and 6, on a 8 day trip through Morocco using the driver service of Marrakesh Expeditions. Omar, our driver, was excellent! Very kind and patient with the kids, suggesting interesting places to visit on the way to our planned destinations and helping us with whatever we needed. An unforgettable experience for us, the kids can’t wait to visit this beautiful country & people again. Thanks a lot!

    Marocco on the road Contattato Ali via mail qualche mese prima abbiamo concordato il viaggio con partenza e rientro da e a Marrakech. L'agenzia è stata assolutamente all'altezza delle nostre aspettative e ci ha consentito un viaggio piacevole e senza problemi. Alla nostra guida, il giovane simpatico Mohamed, il nostra più grande grazie per essere stato un compagno di viaggio attento ai nostri bisogni e rispettoso dei nostri desideri. A lui il nostro augurio di crescere, studiare anche l'italiano e diventare sempre più bravo!

    Amazingly enjoyable trip through Morocco Wonderful trip organised for us which afforded us understanding & views of Moroccan landscapes, country, culture and people. Excellent accommodations chosen in amazing Rhiads for us. Excellent restaurants for all meals were organised for us. Excellent cultural stops and shopping opportunities. Excellent guides very knowledgable, local and with good English. Driver Moha was excellent driver & kept us on time and enjoying everything at the same time. Superb custom trip in an incredibly interesting country. The only thing at all negative was the first night’s accommodation in Casablanca (very late arrival through incredible traffic after our flight, no dinner available, apparently nowhere to purchase bottled water except from the waiter, and room was very noisy on main roads with hotel staff unhelpful. ) Would recommend this company and their tour planning. Had an amazing trip. Loved it.
