What people are saying about Ouarzazate International Airport

We had a great day with our guide Hassan. We learned lots of things about the entire region from Ouarzazate to Zagora. The lunch taken with the locals was succulent and in true local traditions, it was divine. We also tasted dates picked directly from the palm tree during our camel excursion. Superb landscapes throughout the palm grove of the Draa valley as well as at the gates of the Sahara desert. Absolutely worth discovering.
