Ait-Ben-Haddou in Ouarzazate

Explore One of Morocco’s Most Impressive Kasbahs

Located over the pass of the Atlas Mountains from Marrakech, Ouarzazate is home to one of the most magnificent still-standing examples of the ksars from past days. A ksar is a group of buildings made of earth that are all bound together within one set of defensive walls, and this particular one, Ait-Ben-Haddou, is an UNESCO protected World Heritage Site. Ait-Ben-Haddou was a main trading post on the route from Sudan to Marrakech. In more recent past it has been the setting for many movies, including Lawrence of Arabia.

On this trip we will transport you to Ouarzazate and Ait-Ben-Haddou. Our guide will give you a private tour through the old walled city. This picturesque location will be sure to have your camera busy so come prepared!

Once we have toured Ait-Ben-Haddou, we can find a nice spot for lunch and tea in the city as you prefer. Depending on time, we may also have the opportunity to visit the movie studios located in Ouarzazate.

Let us know what your interests are when booking this tour so we can be sure to plan your perfect day. The trip to Ouarzazate takes approximately 4 hours each way, so this will be a very full day but well worth it!
