Your 3 Day tour from Ouarzazate to Marrakech will start by visiting the renowned Kasbah Taourirt. After that, we will head to the most well-known Ksar in the Ounila Valley, the Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It served as a location for a number of Hollywood blockbusters, namely "Lawrence of Arabia'' (1962), "The Jewel of the Nile'' (1985), and "Game of Thrones''... Due to its amazing history and picturesque location, the Kasbah (Ksar) of Ait Ben Haddou was inscribed to UNESCO's World Heritage list in 1987.

We will travel to the Dades Valley after breakfast, and then we will drive to Explore Skoura Oasis and the stunning Valley in Kalaat M'Gouna, where the Rose Festival is held annually in May. It is an occasion to celebrate and display a portion of the local culture, including art and music.

Day 2: Dades Gorges - Todra Gorges - Merzouga - Camel Ride & night in the desert
