Traveler Tips

Make sure you you wear comfy sensible footwear, as you trek up the Atlas mountain can be slippy.
I definitely suggest to wear your sneakers, if you want a safe hiking in the mountain!

What a day!

Absolutely amazing experience. Amazing value for money. Breathtaking scenery. Camel ride in traditional dress was a lot of fun. Ibrahim was a fab guide - very knowledgeable and made sure the day ran smoothly. Can’t fault this experience
A nice daytrip
KristinI_P, Mar 2023
We had a wonderful day with our guide Ibrahim and Muhammed, the driver. Both are very attentive and good company. We are in Morocco for a few days and the trip was an excellent way to get the most out out of our stay. Actually, we went on a trip that was longer and included a walk to a waterfall in Imlil, I don't know why, but we enjoyed the walk as well. We had a good tagine food on the very and the wonderful mint tea, also. We can surely recommend this trip meeting a lot of very welcoming Moroccans.
It was beautiful!
Adriano_R, Mar 2023
It was a various and enjoyable day, all was very good! The guide Mubarak is friendly and very professional, we saw many things with perfect timing of the stops, highly recommended
Highlight of our Moroccan trip!
Martha_D, Mar 2023
This was the highlight of our week in Morocco!! We spent a full 8 hours traveling to and from the breathtaking mountains and Agafay desert. We had two meals, toured the Argan oil collaborative, rode camels - incredible! Ibrahim is a very friendly and knowledgeable guide who went out of his way to help everyone to have a great time, and the driver (whose name I can’t remember!) is skilled and careful. It was a perfect day - don’t miss this tour if you are going to Marrakech! Plan for a full day, and wear comfortable shoes for fairly strenuous hiking!
Amazing experience

“If I could I would give it 10 stars”
Selinha_D, Mar 2023
From start to end this experience was one for the books! Whether you are someone who enjoys the luxury in life or being connected to earth, this excursion has something for us all. Got to visit the amazing waterfalls of which included a serious hike (make sure you wear closed footwear and have water on deck), female cooperative for argan oil, desert agafay and a camel ride. A 3 course lunch was also provided of which tasted incredible. A true taste of Moroccan cuisine. The driver was very prompt and we never had to wait for him. The guide Oufars Hassan always kept us informed and we never felt lost. He was also super attentive to group ensuring everyone was accounted for and especially me during the waterfalls as there were parts I was scared haha! If you come to Marrakech and you want a day trip, this is the one to choose!
Great trip, great guides and amazing experience
James_P, Mar 2023
I am so glad my wife and I chose this trip. We were not coming to Morocco for long and so wanted an activity day and this seemed like a reasonable offering. From hotel pick up all the way through to drop off was seem less. Our guide who spoke 5 languages beautifully was phenomenal and enjoyed telling us about not just the sights but also his own life. We were chauffeured around in a beautiful and comfy minibus and there were plenty of unscheduled stops for pictures of the scenery. The camel riding was a superb experience and there were lots of little extras like traditional tea. We then walked through the Atlas Mountains to a waterfall which was great to get out stretch legs and experience more reality within the Berber village. Advice I would give to anyone planning this trip is to take a rucksack with some water and a jumper as it can get a little cold dependent on the day. The lunch is well worth it and was a phenomenal chicken tagine with spectacular views of the atlas snow capped mountains from the warmth of the balcony. Great trip, great guides and amazing experience.
Ibrahim the great!
Salman_L, Mar 2023

Perfect day out
David_N, Mar 2023
Definitely a “must do” and so many lasting memories thanks to our wonderful guide - Moustapha Baghmad - and our driver Mohammad who had excellent driving skills. The food and drink at every stop, the camel ride, the waterfalls and the scenery makes this a perfect trip for anyone visiting Marrakech
Amazing experience

Heaven in the desert
DrChanaka_K, Mar 2023
Wonderful experience and a very good tour guide named Driss. Driss was explaining right from the start to the end. At the end we all felt Dross was close to all in the tour. Will recommend to all all friends and family.
Well worth it
Paul_G, Mar 2023
This was a brilliant day trip. It covered a lot as the title suggested. The guide Mohammad or potato(es) as he was known was well known everywhere we went and was a lot of fun. This tour was a great way to explore rural Morocco outside the hustle and bustle of Marrakech.
Great Time!
ashryp, Mar 2023
Highly recommend! This was such a lovely trip. Our guide Ibrahim was attentive and patient and ensured we all had a great time. Great way to see the Atlas Mountains and Agafay desert.
Great trip, cheap and lots to see
Lisa_L, Mar 2023
Lovely trip. We got picked up at 9 am then drove to camel rides, from there we took a stop at the atlas mountain viewing point and on to imlil where we had lunch (70dh) and a walk to the waterfall (ca 1.5h) which was a nice break to the sitting during the driving. Finally we took a trip to a bargain oil factory and returned to marrakech by 5:30pm.
The best experience ever
Tanvir_A, Mar 2023
We had an amazing experience with this Atlas Mountain hike and Camel ride. It was such a unique experience and abdou and Hussein Mali were both amazing hosts. Grateful for the experience
