Along the way, we will make several stops for coffee, restroom breaks, and to admire the breathtaking panoramic views, providing opportunities for photos. After a morning of travel, we will stop for lunch in the medieval town of Aït Benhaddou, followed by a guided exploration of the town's alleys and passageways.
