Ait Benhaddou : it is not a 1-day trip.
You visit Morocco and you would not miss it for anything in the world: Ait Benhaddou Kasbah. You have booked your flights and your hotel in Marrakech and you prepare to booker your excursions.
You found on the net a day trip AIT BENHADDOU to and during the day … You say : ” Wow, this is great. We will have everyting programmed!”
We then tell you that you are doing a MISTAKE!
The tour day Ait Benhaddou from Marrakech is difficult and long. Very long.
3 hours and half drive in the MOUNTAINS separate Marrakech Ait Benhaddou, a road full of turns. The calculation is simple: first way 3hours 30min (more if you travel by bus), way back 3hours 30min (more if you go by road of Telouet ) . It’s been 7-hour drive in the day. A return to Marrakech around 7pm… but in what condition?
Take your time. Allow 2 days to visit the Ouarzazate region. You can get a good taste of the beauty of the Great South of Morocco. Dunes & Desert proposes two days discovering the oasis of Fint , Skoura palm grove with Kasbah Amridile and the city of Ouarzazate in addition to the visit of Ksar Ait Benhaddou and some movie studios. You sleep in a charming guest house!
It really is a beautiful excursion, something to do while in Morocco.

PS: The ideal for visiting southern Morocco is to have AT LEAST 4 days …. the top is a full week. There’s so much to see and do not neglect the factor of distances to make a good decision.
