Tour Plan

Day 1: Marrakech – Telouet – Ait Benhaddou – Ouarzazate

4 days From Marrakech to Fes Via Merzouga Sahara Desert tour Starting around 08:30 From Marrakech.
We will pick you up at your hotel/riad. We leave Marrakech and drive towards the High Atlas Mountains and the road for Ouarzazate through the Tizi´ N´Tichka pass (2260m). You will enjoy beautiful landscapes with different colours and the Berber villages. We will visit Kasbah Telouet which was occupied by the Glaoui Pacha during his reign and is frequented by Moroccan travellers. 4 days from Marrakech to Fes

The Kasbah is in the village of Telouet nestled outside the Ounila Valley. The Harem and reception hall areas give one a good idea of the former luxury in which El Glaoui lived, as well as a look at the Andalusian-style of decorating. However, the older parts of the Kasbah are in complete ruins, making it difficult to see properly. Walking through the crumbling passageways is like walking through a maze and some people have got lost exploring the dilapidated Kasbah.

We continue to the second Kasbah, Aït Benhaddou, UNESCO placed it under its auspices as a World Heritage Site.  and then the Moroccan Government itself jumped on the bandwagon in 1994 to rehabilitate the Kasbah in order to preserve the cultural and national heritage. 4 days from Marrakech to Fes. 4 days from Marrakech to Fes
