Very nice experience!!
, Mar 2020
The plan of the trip was very nice, we made all the necessary stops to admire the view and we had enough time to enjoy the kasbahs of Aït Ben Haddou and Taourirt. Both of our guides were very nice and provided us with plenty of information about the sites. Our driver was also very good, not very reckless for the standards of Morocco as he was pretty careful and he didn't make dangerous moves if he wasn't sure about it. Unfortunately, our experience took an unpleasant turn at the beginning as our minivan had a problem and we had to wait for an hour in order for an other van to come and get us. On a positive note though, the second van was more comfortable and we continued with our normal schedule. I just wish this hadn't had happened so that we could have more time to visit the Atlas Studios in Ouarzazate. But these kind of things can occur unexpectedly so I only remove one star. Another thing you have to take into account is that the road is extremely tricky with a lot of turns and low quality so the trip is not very comfortable. As a person who gets easily nauseous I suggest that you take a pill or two beforehand and you will be alright, as was I. But considering the fact that the inconvenience because of the road is inevitable, I suggest not spending a lot of money for this excursion. Overall my boyfriend and I enjoyed the trip and we are very pleased with the company, so we are suggesting this daytrip to everyone that has the necessary patience.

Friendly driver and tour guide. Driver is accommodating the needs of tour participants (different groups). Overall a good experience with this company.
Interesante visita a la Kasbah pero un viaje de muchas horas por una carretera bastante mejorable.

La visita a la Kasbah fue muy buena. Sin embargo la visita a la ciudad del cine no me resultó interesante. Mención especial al mal estado de la carretera que cruza el la cordillera del Atlas.
Gita a Ait Ben Haddou e Ouarzazate
, Sep 2019
La gita è andata benissimo. I paesaggi, la catena dell'Atlante e Ait Ben Haddou sono stupendi. Il viaggio consente di apprezzare la trasformazione del paesaggio dalla zona coltivata attorno a Marrakech a quella desertica di Ait Ben Haddou e Ouarzazate. L'organizzazione è stata eccellente, l'autista puntuale e professionale e l'assistenza ottima. GITA FORTEMENTE CONSIGLIATA!

Es un viaje largo por lo que no da tiempo para mucho...pero lo que no me gusto es el poco tiempo que se esta en Ait Ben Haddou, apenas 1 hora y vas con un guia que apenas se gana los 3 euros que se hubiera gustado estar mas tiempo a tu aire...pero habia que ir a comer...a un restaurante concertado...unos 12 eu Tampoco me gusto que no fueramos a ver los estudios de cine reales en Ourzazate...y nos dejaran junto al museo de cine, que no tiene nada que ver con los estudios, frente a la kasbah... en fin mejorable

Hola, gracias por tu comentario Es muy lamentable ver su opinión, lo cual es injusto en mi opinión, ya que declaramos claramente que este recorrido es un conductor de 4 horas en cada sentido, pero hemos mencionado claramente: - tienes 2 horas en ait ben Haddou - tienes 1 hora para almorzar - el almuerzo cuesta 9-12 € y eres libre de ir a cualquier restaurante - No hay parada en los estudios sino en el MUSEO durante 20 minutos También en revisiones anteriores la gente mencionó toda esta información. nuestro precio es el mejor del mercado, otro tenía el mismo servicio por 40 € como todos testificaron en las críticas anteriores. en general, la revisión es un lugar gratuito donde puede mostrar su opinión, pero esto no fue justo en absoluto, ya que por nuestra parte hemos respetado el contrato = descripción.
