    Absolutely wonderful trip. Everything was magical, crossing the High Atlas mountains, visiting the Atlas film studios (Gladiator, Prince of Persia, Game of Thrones,…) and the Khasba Ksar Ait Ben Haddou, a historic and typical place.our guide, provided us with all the essential information and was always available and extremely kind. Our driver was faultless in driving the comfortable, air-conditioned minibus. The somewhat long duration of the journey is largely compensated by the magic of the places and the breathtaking scenery. Absolutely recommended trip!
