It was an amazing lifetime experience. The whole day was packed with amazing activities. The driver and our guide, Redone, were both very friendly. Redone is very knowledgeable and a professional guide. We were very lucky to have him as our tour guide. He made sure everyone was safe-it is a nice feeling to be in such good hands. This trip is worth every penny.

Youssef and Abdul were great! Youssef was very friendly and entertaining. Abdul handled the city traffic like a champ. Great value for the money! Camel ride was a bit rough as an animal activist but also we booked the trip for that specific feature. So our fault.

It was my favorite experience when in Marrakech. To be honest, the desert wasn't too much... but the trip for the villages was awesome. The food was also quite good and the Atlas Mountains were impressing. Last but not least, the guide was kind and friendly

Yousef was such a lovely helpful and kind guide. Having been born in Imlil and with family still residing there - you couldn’t ask for a better guide with local knowledge, a huge thirst for travel, hiking and passion for his local area that he is keen to share. Our hike into the lower mountain region followed by lunch hosted by a local Berber family was so special and such an insight into life in the region. We are keen to return to hikes higher into the mountains, skiing and trips to the Saraha. It was the perfect anecdote to the crazy manic Marrakesh city Medina mayhem. Couldn’t recommend more. Especially if you like camels.

Everything was absolutely amazing! Our driver, azif (don’t know how to spell it) was so friendly and and funny. He picked us up 2 minutes away from our riad and dropped us off in the same spot. He told us about his village and was very patient with us. Our tour guide yousef (again, not sure on the spelling) was hilarious and explained so much about everything we saw. I would definitely recommend this tour as it was organised so well. Thank you so much for having us

Would recommend this trip to everyone. It’s definitely a must when you visit Marrakesh. You will get the opportunity from see amazing views to even meet camel babies. Everything was amazing. The guide Youssef and the driver Said were tireless, always anticipating our needs, telling us every detail and taking a lot of pictures. The route is thought out and planned in detail. Worth every cent we paid. They pick up us on time, and every minute was worth it. This day will stay in our memories for a long time because not only you have the opportunity to get to know the Atlas Mountains, as also you get with contact with Moroccan people and culture it self. Extremely complete, this activity is full of details and a lifetime experience. Just want also to praise the seriousness of both, Youssef and Said. I forgot my wallet in the van and hours later they brought me it impeccable. It is really difficult to find good people like this. Don’t lose the chance to have one of best days of your life.

The tour was perfect. We get lots of information about the culture, the camels, the berber families and all aroud the places. The camel riding was the best, but the view and the meals was also the best. Thanks alot to our driver and our tour guide, Abdul and Youssef.

Ali and Abdullatif were amazing guides. Ali helped all of us during the hike when walking through certain areas and kept stopping for us to catch our breath. He explained everything very well and was kind and helpful throughout the whole experience. He also kept asking if we were okay throughout and if we needed anything. Thank you both for such an incredible experience. I would recommend an experience with them.

We truly had the most amazing day I cannot reccomend enough! Our tour guide Yousseff was amazing, so friendly and taught us so much about the culture. we started off the day in reverse due to the rain, with our camel ride which was super fun and we got to dress up in the traditional outfits. We also stopped for plenty of photo stops where we were able to take in the incredible views, before stopping for breakfast in a local village, and getting to see the argan oil process and try some out! Our lunch in the berber village was delicious and finished off with a walk to a beautiful waterfall with mountain views. i honestly cannot reccomend this excursion enough and it absoloutely made our trip to Morrocco. The value for money is amazing and we were pleassntly surprised with how much we were able to do and see in one day. Big thank you to Yousseff for making our trip so enojoyable!

We really enjoyed this trip with Ali as our English and French speaking guide. We first went for the camel ride and the 30 minutes was finally just enough to get the feeling and not get too tired under the hot Moroccan sun. Then we continued for a visit to the argan oil cooperative where we had the opportunity to learn more about argan oil and buy pure local products. The hiking in the Atlas Mountains was quite demanding, long and quite tiring. The lunch was included in the trip price and was very tasty. In general the guides took really good care of us and provided us with cold water bottles when necessary. Thank you for the amazing trip, really worth it.
