    Traveller Tips

    The trip was well worth it and very inexpensive for what was included.
    Can not recommend it enough especially after a few days in the busy and packed medina.
    The tour has some great views and places to visit!

    Putting ROCK in Morocco!
    Gabrielle_E, Nov 2021
    I cannot express how wonderful this tour enough. Both the tour guide, Saïd and the driver were very knowledgeable, accommodating and enthusiastic. The van was very comfortable and very clean. The timing was superb and every place that was on the itinerary was amazing. Then the restaurant where we had lunch, served one of the best Tagine we’ve ever had. Me and my boyfriend were very very happy and super contented. The price of the tour is actually underrating the service. 5 stars! Thank you Saïd.
    Insane Value for an Incredible Tour

    Weren't entirely sure what to expect based on the super cheap price, but we were absolutely blown away by this tour. Our guide, Said, was super friendly and helpful-- picked us up from Riad in the center of the Medina District, brought us on a hike to his village, and had answers for all of our questions in between. The lunch wasn't included (only ~6 euros) but was delicious and very authentic. All in all, I would strongly recommend both this trip and our tour guide to anyone interested in seeing the natural beauty that lies outside of Marrakech. 10/10 experience!
    Very nice tour that I would go on again, although it is not very accurate.

    The tour guide was wonderful and friendly, he brought us to various locations at a leisurely pace. He was always ready to help us take pictures or answer our questions. the onle negative is that the Advertisement on the viator website is not very accurate, first off the tour is not private, we shared it with 6 other people, we didnt visit the agafay desert and have a tea break by the Lalla Takarkoust lake.

    Amazing trip!
    Amelia_R, Oct 2021
    Perfect jam packed day excursion with excellent food and great tour guides (potatoes and chawi) that gave us an insight into Berber life. Ridiculously good value for money even with the extra for food. Cheapest and tastiest meal we’ve had so far in Morocco. Very safe bus driving too. Can’t recommend this tour enough!
    Highly recommended tour
    Louise_W, Oct 2021
    We had a lovely day trip with Said and Ahmed. The argan oil cooperative was really educational and the breakfast was lovely. The guides were really friendly and knowledgeable. Lots of lovely stops for Moroccan mint tea. The only thing I would say is it isn't clear you have to pay for lunch. It says "included" but we didn't think it would be for the price of the tour. So just take some cash for it. It is worth it! Lovely spot in the mountains. Highly recommend the tour, a great way to experience Morocco!

    Do This Tour!!!
    Lynnetta_B, Oct 2021
    What a tour!!!! Get ready because you do A LOT in this tour and its all worth it. Beautiful scenes, villages, crafts, hiking, waterfalls, camels….and let’s not forget the tea! Our tour guides were Mohammad (potatoes) and chawi and they were absolutely awesome. Thorough, patient, lively, accommodating and fun! Definitely recommend this tour with these two guides if you can get them, but definitely this tour in general! Great experience!!!!
    Very well organised,...
    Ed_B, Oct 2021

    Great one day out in Marrakesh
    Xiang_L, Sep 2021
    Lovely trip with Omar and Aziz! Super nice and packed with fun - and incredible for the price! The mountains and the village is a refreshing change to the buzzling city that is Marrakesh
    Great value day trip to the mountains.
    Peter_S, Sep 2021
    Didn’t really know what to expect as this was the lowest priced trip I found, but I was absolutely delighted. Pick up was punctual in a comfortable, air conditioned minibus, and there were only nine of us in the group so there was plenty of room. We made stops in the weekly Berber market (just a quick guided walk as this is not a “tourist” market), then at the argan cooperative for a Berber breakfast (no pressure to buy), then a photo stop at a pottery shop where our guide (Issmail) gave us an Intro to Berber life, culture, and history). We then continued to Imlil where most of us followed Issmail on a trek to the waterfalls. On the way, he dealt with a minor medical emergency which showed us just what a competent and experienced tour leader he is. With appetites sharpened by the mountain air and an 80 minute hike we had a wonderful tagine for lunch (extra charge 65Dh) - genuinely the best I’ve had so far! After this, a few of our group proposed a siesta so Issmail changed plans to accommodate this - the rest of us happily chatting in the stunning restaurant. From there we went straight to the camel ride - something made more amusing by the group’s reactions than the actual ride - at which point Issmail left us (the tour had overrun a bit!) Our driver, Chawi, took us back to our hotels where we arrived at 18:45 (1 1/2 hours late!) - but all really satisfied. It was a great day, and we really appreciated our guide - for his friendliness, knowledge, and adaptability. 10/10.
