Absolutely fantastic! Loved everything about this tour however the highlight of the whole day was our tour guide Mustafa. He has a heart of gold. Highly recommend this tour, be sure to wear comfy shoes as a trek is involved!
Abdul was an excellent and knowledgeable guide. This is a great way to see sights beyond the usual tourist areas. Lunch is fantastic too.
Thoroughly enjoyed this excursion, had plenty of amazing views and the tour guide was very entertaining. Would highly recommend this day trip!
Fantastic experience!!! The pilot and all the staff that service the experience are incredible. Sunrise over the Atlas mountains is also breathtaking.... you will never feel peace and quiet like you do up there!!!
Excellent day tour, informative with a great guide and an amazing location for our delicious lunch
WOW! WOW! WOW! A trip of a lifetime. This was a Marrakech highlight for me. The pilot made the trip, as he put everyone at ease. We started out at 6:30am and had a quick stop at a Berber settlement. Once our balloon had landed, we made our way to the pick up point. The ride was smooth and beautiful. The day was clear and we could see quite far out. Once we landed, we watched as they deflated the balloon. Then we headed back to the Berber house for breakfast and on our return to Marrakech- there was a 20min Camel ride. All in all, money well spent and incredible memories made.
A great break from the city. Lunch in the mountains was an absolute highlight, not just of the day but of our entire trip to Morocco. Truly one of the best meals of my life! Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable and professional.
The day was fantastic. I enjoyed the women's cooperative for Argan Oil, very good demonstration of the process and the women were friendly and allowed photos. Once in Essaouira, our city tour was very informative. The harbor with th fishermen bringing in the catch of the day was unreal. The fish markets, the spice shops etc. were all colorful and vibrant. We had 3 hours of personal time to walk the beach, shop, eat, people watch. Great trip and the guide was very good. Would recommend highly.

Nice way to spend a day outside of Marrakech away from the extreme heat and crowded streets. Our guide was helpful, inforamative and committed to our spending a good day. The Movie studios were marginally interesting, Ait Ben was a great example of Kasbahs of old. Interesting to see the topography.
This was a wonderful experience with a professional team and great pilot. My only comment relates to value for money. We were collected at 6 and returned at 10.00 am so a trip of 4 hours during which time 1 hour 15 mins was spent in the car, 1 hour with the balloon flight 40 mins, 1 hour eating/taking tea and 45 mins with the camels 20mins ride. You decide.
this is an original day trip ,where you can see the original morrocoan people and how they live in the mountains.Not a tourist trap,but the real thing!You should definitely take that day trip!
Amazing experience. From pick up to drop off it was extremely well organised. Everyone was friendly and looked after us well. The scenery is amazing and the tea and pancakes was literally in the middle of the desert. Be warned you do get covered in lots of red dust so wear older clothes. I would 100 recommend this trip!

Abdul the guide was fantastic, very honest, good English and held a great knowledge of Marrakesh and the Atlas Mountains. The tour itself was great, only part i found disappointing was the waterfall but that was mostly our fault for confusing it with the Ouzoud Falls. Minibus was clean and well kept with lots of photo opportunities as Abdul stopped regularly and took photos of the group. The stop for food was brilliant view and the food quality, Abdul also gave advice on how to deal with the annoying people who try to sell you rubbish on the mountain. Brilliant for the price and would definitely recommend. Bring a good camera and zoom lens and you will be able to get some fantastic shots of the lake and mountain
The hike up the waterfalls was fantastic, as was the lunch in the Berber village. The scenery in general was beautiful plus the calmness and fresh air of the mountains was a nice change from the hustle and bustle of the city. Our guide Mustapha was a great guy, full of information and a good sense of humour. Would highly recommend this tour and this company.
Amazing tour guide Shakeeb was friendly and welcoming. Quite a trek up to the waterfall but well worth it. I would recommend good footwear with grip as it can get slippery on the rocks. The meal was delicious at the Berber house. Amazing experience highlight of my visit to Morocco!
Going by the reviews this looked like the best day excursion to do whilst in Marrakesh and I and #39;m pleased to say the reviews were spot on. Mustafa was our driver and he was an entertaining guide. The highlights of the trip for me was a trek up to a waterfall and the meal at the Berber house.

This tour heads to the Berber villages and includes a hike up a waterfall. The driver we had was informative. Lunch is at a house in a small village with great views of the countryside. We did the optional lake tour which was nothing special, just a stop at an overlook for pictures.
Stopped at a government sponsored women and #39;s cooperative where they make argan oil. You can by some of their products. Essaouira itself is okay. Glad I did it to see another part of Morocco, but after a while I was ready to go. Not a ton to see except a souk, the walled city, the fort and that and #39;s it.

A very early start in the morning, but your never going to see the sunrise if you stay in bed, so this whole activity was amazing. One basket and balloon, fits about 12 comfortably, 5 in our group and 4 in another, plus the captain. So besides the basics, this was utterly pleasurable, and even my lady saying yes to my proposal, I now have a fiancee, and the whole event was recorded. Fantastic. The crew on the ground and the captain with us was, well, awesome. The other group with us were very friendly too and made it a good time. The Captain, well experienced, nearly 10 years and made the whole event a total bundle of laughs.
The camel riding was extremely great, never done that before, well looked after, it was an experience and the camels, 4 we used, as one of our party didn't want to take part, were relaxed and well behaved.
Fantastic tour very helpful staff
AMAZING. Worth every single penny.
Excellent day trip, lovely guide and the home-made food was incredible. Thank you so much!
