I joined this excursion with my colleagues and we were lucky to have Ahmed as our driver/guide for the day. It was a long drive to the Kasbah but worth it. Ahmed was always there to be sure we are having a great time and always asked if we need to stop after the drive through the windy road.

Great experience

We booked this day trip due to our short time in Morocco, we got to see little of everything. For those who have more time in Morocco, I'd recommend a +2-day trip due to the long drive. Overall, it was a great experience. Our driver/guide Youssef was so kind and helpful.

Awesome experience

The excursion to the kasbah was an awesome experience even though it was a very long drive and through the snaky road of the high Atlas Mountains. Our driver/guide Mustafa was an excellent, and friendly guy which made our trip fun.
