It was a wonderful day with the captain Abdul Hamid in the skies of the outskirts of the city of Marrakech in an atmosphere full of suspense by the captain, the crew have been credited with the rise and descent of successfully
Thank you captain abdul hamid
Breakfast was provided prior to the balloon ride. They were very organized. The ride itself was amazing. Everything went very smooth. Worth every penny. The landing was also very smooth. Captain abdul hamid was friendly and very professional. He pointed out many areas of interest as we travelled across the terrain. Don't hesitate to book this magical experience.
Great day out. Our tour guide Chakib was very knowledgable and welcoming. Would recommend this to anyone wanting to experience the true side to morocco. Sensible shoes is a must as trekking upto the waterfall and a long sleeve top as it gets cold higher up into the mountains. Me and my wife loved it.
The trip was excellent. Our guide/driver spoke very good English and was keen to show us all the sights. Our party consisted of 6 adults and we were taken in a comfortable 4 wheel drive vehicle. We visited the 3 valleys, climbed up to see the waterfall and thoroughly enjoyed the amazing scenery. The highlight was having lunch in a Berber house in the mountains, where we sat outside (admiring the great views) and ate wonderful fresh bread and tomato salsa, Moroccan tagines, couscous and melon - followed by mint tea. We all had an amazing experience and would highly recommend this trip.
our tour started in Marrakech,we were picked up by our tour guide ,there was 3 other couples on this tour.we then proceeded to the ourika valley,the views were breath taking ochards small berber villages,rivers,mountains and vallies.we went up to the falls,we walked on a swinging bridge over a river,we had lunch with a berber family and our guide was very helpful and knowledgeable,over all a great trip and well worth the money.
We were offered to take on the tour one day later to enjoy the best of the weather which we did. Our guide, Ahmed was great! He took us to some amazing places and showed us amazing sceneries. He told us plenty about Morocco, its culture and its people. He was more than happy to answer all our questions. He is a very skilled driver with a great sense of humour and offered to stop when we wanted to take pictures. We are not sure that Ouarzazate is really worth travelling to and visiting as except from a few studios which we could not visit, there is not much to see. We would have preferred to have more time to spend in Ait Benhaddou which was definitely the highlight of the trip. On our way back, Ahmed took us on a bit of off-road which was great fun. We would definitely recommend this trip and our guide Ahmed! This was definitely the highlight of our stay in Morocco!!
Absolutely incredible. It's an early start but from start to finish it was just amazing. I must admit I was terrified when I saw the balloon being inflated but once you're up it's perfectly silent and peaceful and get to watch the sun coming up over the Atlas Mountains. Our pilot was so funny too.
Guide/driver was very good, spoke English well.
Tour Guide was very quiet, didn't tell us anything. The atlas film studio tour last 45 minutes. We did not get free time to explore as described in the itinerary.
Ait Benhaddou was worth doing though.
Be prepared for rough trip there and back... The driver drives to fast, felt sick all the way!!!!
Beautiful experience¡,, love ti.

This was the highlight of our short trip to Marrakech. The guide was excellent, the vehicle was very comfortable,the scenery was beautiful. And our lunch on the roof of a Berber house was delicious. Cannot recommend highly enough!
Without doubt this is a excellent tour to go on. From mad Marrakech to the tranquil mountains. You will travel through the three valleys, all of which have varying scenery. Experience the different culture as you see how they live in the many mountain villages you pass through. The tour driver was excellent and would always stop for photos etc. Still be prepared to be sold something on these stops. The waterfall visit is very interesting as you mix with the locals but you must be fit as some climbing over rougher terrain is needed and good footwear is recommended. The meal at the Berbers house is amazing.
Superb table setting. Look out over mountain scenery while you enjoy excellent home cooked food. What more can you want ?
Overall an excellent day. Ours was in fact well over 9 hours long so we were never rushed to fit it all in. Take this trip and you will not be disappointed.
