    Relaxed and easy tour!
    Alexandra_S, Mar 2023
    This was a great trip. Easy pick-up. Great driver and guide. We rode camels, stopped at two viewing points to see the Atlas mountains, stopped for a Berber lunch, hiked to the waterfall, and visited an Argon oil farm. Overall, great experience!

    Vlachou_N, Mar 2023
    Excellent day trip accompanied by a knowledgeable and very friendly guide. The tour around the Argan oil workshop was a great experience, the landscapes of the snowy mountains were stunning and the camel ride was an unforgettable experience. Excellent value for money. I would definitely recommend it! Many thanks to your agency as well as Hasan for a memorable day
    Imrane Great Guide Atlas Mountains
    Cody_H, Mar 2023
    Imrane was a great guide. He took us through the Atlas Mountains and was very helpful. We had a great time and would recommend to anyone. The camel ride in the Agafay desert was very fun and it is a great value for the price.
    Very interesting tour with hiking in the Atlas
    Borjana_H, Mar 2023
    The trip is absolutely recommendable. You have enough time to enjoy the beautiful nature and take photos. We were surprised that there was also a 1.5 hour hike to the waterfall. The guide Ibrahim was very nice and communicative. Be sure to wear comfortable light walking shoes..
    Close but no cigar

    Good trip into Atlas Mountains. Camel ride took roughly 20 mins. Waterfalls were nice. Lunch was good. Berber village is actually a shop.
    definitely take this trip

    A day trip from Marrakech to remember!
    Dan_S, Mar 2023
    Our guide, Eunice, and our driver, Omar, both of whom were from the areas we were visiting, were as knowledgeable and engaging as they were friendly and attentive. Our day included a picturesque hike through a Berber village framed with snow capped mountains, a wonderful lunch in a local restaurant with amazing views, and a quite memorable camel ride in the Agafay Desert. Throughout each event we learned and laughed as we created memories of a lifetime, thanks to Eunice.
    Awesome excursion!
    Alexander_G, Mar 2023
    Lassen was a fantastic tour guide! Very enthusiastic, always had a smile on his face and a very fun person to be around. Was super knowledgeable about the Berber village, and he takes great pictures! Highly recommend this excursion if you are in Marrakech!
    Brilliant trip to Atlas Mountains and the desert with wonderful guide ‘Mery’. Mery made our day really special😊😊
    Azhar_C, Mar 2023
    Covered lots of great areas in one day, worth of money, our guide ‘Mery’ was brilliant throughout the journey- very co-operated, smile always on her face, gave attention to everyone, stopped at the great locations for viewing and taking pictures, the food she arranged at the Imlil valley was fantastic. Thank you Mery for everything, you made our day more enjoyable 🙏🙏

    Unique experience not to be missed
    Irem_K, Mar 2023
    Day was truly great! Imrane and the bus driver picked us up at 9am and after picking up some other tour participants we were on our way to the Agafay desert. We had a 10mins stop there and then drove some more for the camel ride. Before the actual camel ride we had Moroccan tea and dressed up with some traditional berber clothes. The camel ride lasted about 40 mins and the experience was really nice - you can ask the guides to take photos of you. Afterwards we headed to a small village for breakfast where they served some pitas with argan oil, olive oil and Amlou (quite similar to peanut butter). We also got to watch how argan oil is produced. We then drove up to another village where we did a small hike and reached a waterfall which was really cool (quite touristic too). We had a late lunch (around 4pm), chicken Tagine, for an extra MAD 70. Imrane was really helpful and very friendly. He helped us buy a traditional Berber rug on the way back to Marrakech and that was really appreciated. Highly recommended! Unbeatable price for what is offered.
    Enjoyable one-day breakaway with stunning views (and people)
    Giorgio_F, Mar 2023
    If you (like me) find yourself with one day only to be spent outside of the city, this tour may definitely be your best option! It is great value for money as in the space of a single day one gets to see and experience a lot of different things. In particular, the views one gets to see are absolutely breathtaking, especially the ones of the Agafay desert and the majestic peaks of the Atlas Mountains. A special mention must also go to our amazing tour guide Imrane (here depicted with me — I’m the one with hippie glasses): he’s extremely knowledgeable and competent, gentle and just a marvelous person to have around. A great added value to an already fantastic tour :)

    Baha Ibrahim was our...
    Magdalena_K, Mar 2023
    Baha Ibrahim was our guide. Helpful, smiling and friendly. The trip is ok. Not crazy, but it's worth going outside of Marrakesh. Very tasty lunch😬😬😬😬BEWARE OF THE OIL SHOP. PRICE MADNESS. 2 OILS AND 2 CREAMS 1600 MAD. BETTER ASK FOR PRICES BEFORE BUYING
    Spectacular Views and Value for Money
    Zarrin_T, Mar 2023
    We booked through Viator and it was an easy process. After booking, I contacted the tour operator and they let me know where the pickup location is (as we lived in the heart of the medina). Driss was our tour guide and he was honestly amazing! He was very kind and accommodating to all of our needs. First stop was to the Argan Oil refinery. This is where they served us different types of oils with bread and traditional Moroccan tea (breakfast). We also witnessed how they make argan oil and explained the process. This is where you can also buy Argon oil for your hair, face etc. After this we then headed to the start of our ‘hike’. They call it a hike but I would say it is steep at first but evens out. Driss always kindly makes stops for us so anyone can catch up, take a breath, take pictures etc. there are stunning views throughout this walk. Highly recommended!! During the hike we saw imlil waterfalls which were stunning, can be crowded but we left before it got busy so it’s best to get there early! Once the walk was complete, we had lunch which they served a rice like dish and chicken tagine. We both enjoyed our view but the best part was the view. The view was breathtaking from where we sat. After the walk we headed towards the Agafay Dessert to do the camel ride. We were able to dress up in berber clothes and climb onto the camels. Again we were served tea whilst we waited. The activity was around 20 minutes and a very good experience! Throughout the journey Driss checked on us all and provided informative information. For the price and the amount we did, was very worth the value. I 100% recommend this trip!!
    A tour worth experiencing
    Rimaz_R, Mar 2023
    The tour guide was extremely friendly and knowledgeable, it was nice to experience and see Moroccan culture in this way. The camel ride was great fun and so was seeing the mountains. We had plenty of opportunities to take in the atmosphere and take pictures. I'd highly recommend it to anyone traveling solo or as a group. It was great making friends with the rest of the tour group.
    Good experience
    Darren_A, Mar 2023
    We had a really fun time with a great group of people. Our guide Mohamed Larbi was excellent. Very friendly and I helped the day go song nicely. Our driver was a good buy too Aziz.
    Well worthwhile, highlight of the holiday
    Michael_L, Feb 2023
    Fantastic day trip all in all! We had a few stops in the valleys on the way to the Atlas Mountains. These were a tad underwhelming, but worth stoping at as they were largely on the way. Just before lunch, we got to the Atlas Mountains, which were a highlight of the whole holiday! There's a short hike (approx 1 hour) to get to the waterfall, but this is very low intensity. Just make sure you wear stuff you'd be comfortable walking a little in! The food was well worth it, portion wise and taste wise! The camel ride was great fun as well!
    Thanks Ibrahim! Good tour...
    Trang_T, Feb 2023
    Thanks Ibrahim! Good tour guide, very patient and help! Thank you for looking after us and guiding us!
    Excellent day out, beatiful views in the desert, enjoyable camel ride. Friendly tour guide!
    Gautam_P, Feb 2023
    The experience started in Marrakech in the morning, and we were taken out to the Atlas mountains by a friendly tour guide and driver in a comfortable mini-bus. The guide, Driss, was detailed, thorough, and extremely friendly. He stopped at various points through the tour to ensure we were getting some photos, making sure we were OK. The highlights were the tour of the Agafay desert, and the camel ride, which was quite a scenic experience. Would totally recommend to my friends/family.
