Marrakesh walk tour last part; Jemaa El Fna Sqaure at night

How did I booked this Zagora 2D1N tour via walk-in query only;
Upon arrival in the last stop of bus #19 in Jemaa Square coming from Marrakesh Airport, I honestly don't know how to proceed searching for my booked hostel as lots of stand-by locals coming for me. So What I did was pretended that already know where to go and I'm just looking for some restaurant to have lunch. Upon walking on the KFC sidewalk (between the Koutoubia Mosque and Jemaa Square) and after a street, I passed by this persistent local offering me brochure of major Marrakesh tours. Since he was not looking harmless, I entertain his negotiation ans we went to the their office which was a very short walked from where we were standing. I bargained the Zagora 2D1N tour to 500MAD ($24.7) from its original price of 650MAD ($80). 

Zagora 2D1N tour includes roundtrip transfer from my hostel via Aircon Minibus, visits to Ait Behaddou, Ouarzazate, Draa Valley, Zagora, two hours sunset camel backride, dinner and night spent in a Berber desert camp under the stars or in tents. Ait Benhaddou is a traditional Mud Brick city on the edge of the High Atlas Mountains. It is on the UNESCO World Heritage List and has featured in many films, mostly as a replacement for Jerusalem.

Ait Ben Haddou is a fortified city, or ksar, along the former caravan route between the Sahara and Marrakech in present-day Morocco. It is situated in Souss-Massa-Drâa on a hill along the Ounila River and is known for its kasbahs, although they take damage with each rainstorm. Most of the town's inhabitants now live in a more modern village at the other side of the river; however, eight families still live within the ksar. Aït Benhaddou has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987 and several films have been shot there, including: The Last Temptation of Christ (1988), The Mummy (1999), Gladiator (2000), Alexander (2004), Kingdom of Heaven (2005), Babel (2006), Prince of Persia (2010) and Son of God (film) (2014).
