4 Days Marrakech to Fes Desert Tour itinerary:
DAY 1 : MARRAKECH / KASBAH AIT BENHADDOU / OUARZAZATE / VALLE OF THE ROSES / DADES GORGE :
Your English-speaking driver will pick you up at your hotel and transport you from Marrakech to the Valley of the Roses. Before reaching Ait Benhaddou, go across the High Atlas Mountains through the Tizi -n-Tichka pass and take in some of Morocco’s most breathtaking mountain views. Spend some time touring Ait Behaddou, one of the Atlas Region’s most unusual and well-preserved Kasbahs.
The Kasbah, which is currently protected by UNESCO, offers stunning views of the surrounding palmerie and beyond. From Ait Benhaddou, travel to Ouarzazate, which is home to Morocco’s “Hollywood” film industry. While there, stop by the film studios to witness where movies like Gladiator and the Mummy were made.
Visit Kasbah Taourirt, which used to be one of the region’s largest Kasbahs and was originally inhabited by members of the Glaoui Dynasty that governed the area, and explore the city. This Kasbah has undergone meticulous restoration by UNESCO, and it is perhaps the largest tourist attraction in Ouarzazate.
