If you are interested in visiting the Kasbah at Ait Benhaddou and the Draa Valley on your way to the desert, then a 3 day (minumum) tour with Omar is your best bet. This way, you need not worry about haggling with the taxi driver or worrying about where you are going to spend the night. The price of the tour depends on how many people sign up for it. The more people there is, the cheaper it will be for everyone.
