From Agdz to Ait Ben Haddou for a day trip?

In a couple of weeks we will be staying at Agdz. Will it be easy to drive to Ait Ben Haddou from there for a visit (daytrip)? It’s about 100 Km drive but how long will this take? Seems we have to cross a pass with bad road surface. We prefer to drive only by daylight. How much time do we need for a visit of Ait ben Haddou and will we have time left to see Ouazarrate too? Thanks for your help.

There's a pass between Agdz and Ouarzazate but the road conditions and tarmac are fine. Don't head for the centre of Ouarzazate, rather keep to the left through Tarmight and follow signs for Marrakech.

22km or so from Ouarzazate take a left turn signposted Ait Benhaddou, it's another 12km or so from there.

For your return follow signs through Ouarzazate for Zagora.

Dear Tim, thanks for your help. How much time do you think this ride will take? Google maps says 2 hours but our TomTom says 3 hours one way. When it takes 3 hours we have to move to a hotel near Ait Ben Haddou because 6 hours for a return trip is too much. Otherwise we can stay a few extra nights in Agdz which saves us the packing and unpacking of our luggage.

I'd reckon on two and a half hours max.

Dear Tim, Looks like we better make an extra stop on our route between Agdz and Tafraoute. So we will book a hotel near Ait Ben Haddou or at Ouarzazate for one or two nights. Many thanks again, Cor TT
