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 Sar...

The day trip was a good mix of activity and information. The walk in the Atlas mountains culminated in a delicious traditional meal in a Berber house and was followed with a drive into the Sahara desert and a really good camel ride in traditional robes which provided an excellent photo opportunity. The driving was safe and comfortable and the guide was friendly and informative. Highly recommend this tour.

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...

So so amazing!! Went to all the local places that we wouldve otherwise never experienced. Youssef was AMAZING! So courteous and interactive with the tour. If you are to do 1 tour here, I recommend this one. We ranged from camel riding in the desert, to waterfalls, to local markets. So awesome!

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.

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.

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

We really recommend this tour to get to know truly the moroccon culture with a native guide. We definitely had the best meal of our stay during the tour in the Berber house where this family welcomed us warmly and cooked for the group. They were very nice to welcome my request to have a vegetarian meal and it was amazing. Everything was excellent but what made it so perfect was with no doubt our amazing guides Youssef and Mostapha. These young guys are passionate about their job, available fo...

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...

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.
