Fantastic multilingual guide made the trip worthwhile. Many excellent stops including a one hour or so waterfall in ourika. Challenging but worth the effort. Excellent lunch (bit pricey) and stop at an Argan oil workshop to try the real deal freshly made.
Absolutely fantastic! A must do! Despite a very early start we had a wonderful trip. The first valley we trekked up to a beautiful wonderful and because we got up early we had it all to ourselves. The trek is quite a workout and really recommend trainers or something. The lunch was the best food we had all week and ladies make sure that you're wearing long trousers as a sign of respect. The whole day was fantastic and gave a completely different view of Moroccan life as well as trying prickly pears! Brilliant brilliant brilliant!
Fantastic Tour! Hamid and Halid were excellent hosts, as well as the rest of the staff!
Hamid was full of dad jokes that made us feel at ease or incredibly nervous when he pretended to drop a rope from the balloon! It was funny though!
It was serene and breath-taking to watch the sun over the Atlas mountains. Well worth the time and money!
Our Guide Micky was wonderful. The day was so well organized and planned. We got so much information about the culture and life of the area. Micky treated us like family, made jokes, took care of us. We had time in shops, on the beach, eating meals, and even some time on our own. This was a fabulous trip!
Doing what: Essaouira Day Trip from Marrakech
Best tour we have ever done. Scenery was spectacular. Lunch at the Berber home was delicious - best food we have eaten on our 6 week holiday in Europe and good value for money. Morocco attractive tours were very organised and our tour guide Abdul was exceptional. Abdul personalised the day giving us a real insight into life in Morocco - he was highly professional, an excellent driver and having grown up in one of the valleys really knew the area. Again the best tour guide we have experienced anywhere. One thing to note is you need proper shoes for the walk to the waterfall.
We had a great day and a lovely experience with our skilled guide and driver Abdul. He took us to beautiful places in the valleys. We do recommend the tour which is very complete and our guide/driver if you want a unique experience.
What a FANTASTIC experience, Amazing from start to finish.
Something we will NEVER forget, very professional and enjoyable.

Doing what: Marrakech Desert and Palm Grove Quad Bike Tour
Wonderful morning and well worth getting up early
The Balloon ride itself was fantastic and I would highly recommend it, the pilot was hilarious and his years of experience shone through. The description of the experience in it's entirety however was a bit misleading. It was a half hour drive to get to where we had breakfast once we touched town, it was our understanding that it was in the surrounding area. We then had a further half hour to drive to get to a hotel where they have a looped area set up to look like you are out in the desert but it was more like a glorified car park and had litter thrown everywhere. Again it was our understanding that after the breakfast since you are actually out in the desert the camel ride would happen near that area, not a half hour drive away at a hotel. That was a very disappointing end to an otherwise wonderful morning. I would recommend this tour but I would cut it short after the breakfast unless there are adjustments made to the package.
This was an amazing experience that I would highly recommend. The only reason it is 4 rather than 5 star was the abundance of wasps at breakfast. I would nonetheless highly recommend the trip.
Great tour, lunch disappointing but views and tranquility made up for it!
Balloon ride was shorter than expected, about 35 minutes, and the guide talked incessantly about crashing. The camel ride took place in an empty spot between two apartment buildings. There was no scenery, no commentary. It was not good. Would suggest taking one of he camel rides at the beach in Essaouira instead.
Fascinating and professional a very worthwhile experience to get a glimpse of a Marrakech that you would not otherwise see
Best way to start the day in Marrakesh. The experience was marvellous. The Pilot is brilliant and creates a great atmosphere.
Had a great afternoon out seeing the amazing landscape and meeting the very friendly and hospitable locals ...enjoyed every minute.. The crew looked after us well at the end too thanks guys,
Beautiful day out, highly recommended to make the most of your trip to Marrakech
Had a great time on this small group tour - 3 people and our driver. We saw villages, kasbahs, any place we wanted to stop our driver stopped - he explained the area, the way the country works, the importance of helping the small villages, the beauty of the country. Highly recommend.
This was the most amazing trip. The pick up was perfect and the flight awesome, almost surreal. Would certainly reccomend this to everyone going to marrakech. And the camel ride at the end of the morning was so much fun.
Highly recommended, a complete difference to the hustle and bustle of Marrakech city life and the views were exceptional beautiful, unforgettable. Especially the special moment for lunch at the local village with the backdrop of tranquility of the mountains. Also the best highlight to Morocco. Just amazing. Be prepare for some hardcore climbing to the Ourika fall, you definitely need suitable footwear for this as climbing can be quite dangerous, steep mountain climbing. Otherwise, it's the perfect
Amazing views, very different from valley to valley and fresh air. The guide shaqib was superb and the lunch at the Berbers place was the best meal i actually had in morocco. Indeed highly recommended day out!!
A fascinating trip, with an excellent private tour guide, through three varied and striking landscapes. Our guide/driver Abdul was brilliant: friendly, knowledgable, spoke excellent English, drove safely, and gave us loads of information on the life and geography of the mountains and their place in the history of Marrakesh. He also taught us how to say no to local salespeople! Highly recommended for couples or small groups who want a more personal and friendly way of learning about the life and landscape of the mountains, meeting local people, and eating home-made Berber food.
This is probably one of the best tours to do. The communication prior to the trip was excellent, pick up time and place well in advance. Our guide Mustaffa was an extremely nice and well informed man. Nothing was too much trouble and he went out if his way to show,stop and explained every point of interest. The lunch in the local home was great tasty and plentiful. All in all a fantastic day. Thank you.
