Tour of Morocco's spectacular Kasbahs

Come and experience the distinct beauty and unique character of Morocco’s famous fortified Kasbahs. Built from mud bricks the same colour as the sandstone that dominates the desert landscape, these walled citadels were erected to defend towns from attack and have been featured in many classic films such as Lawrence of Arabia, Gladiator and the Game of Thrones TV series amongst others. Take in the stunning rocky terrain as you drive through the highest path of the Atlas Mountains to where the southern desert begins to dominate the landscape and you enter the land of the kasbahs. The trip includes a visit to the extraordinarily well preserved Kasbah of Aït Ben Haddou.

You will be picked up in your comfortable and spacious 4X4 vehicle before beginning your ascent through the picturesque Atlas Mountains. Your knowledgeable driver and guide will point out all the key sights along the way and keep you informed and entertained with historical stories and anecdotes. Once you reach the highest point of the mountains you will begin your descent towards the desert, taking in the spectacular views that your raised elevation affords.
