This tour was a very good surprise !! The guide Ibrahim, picked us up at mosque Molay Iyazid on time and then we went to pick the rest of the turists at Jamaa el-fnaa. We started by drinking some tea and biscuits before riding the camels - Ibrahim was very helpful all the time, took pictures whenever we wanted and helped us with everything - the camel ride was amazing and I totally recommend it.
After that, we made a quick stop at a shop by the road, where we drank some more tea and ate bread with lemon honey and argan oil. There we also saw how argan oil was made and we had the opportunity to buy some. After this we went to see a local market that was only open on tuesday and it was a very nice chance to sea where the local buy some of their stuff. We then stoped at a berber village and ate there a marvelous meal at a very nice local house. After lunch we went on a walk through the mountains and the village and I have to say it was a very nice surprise and a very refreshing walk, we saw some beautiful landscapes, we saw a waterfall and we ate some apples from the village that Ibrahim got for us. Finally we made some stops along the way to take some pictures and appreciate the view of agafay desert. We returned home at about 6:30p.m. I would do this trip all over again if I had the chance - our guide was very helpful and was always trying to explain us everything that we were seeing in the trip. It was undoubtedly my best day in Morroco !!
We had an amazing tour very polite professional & helpful Ibrahim & kamal was attentive and made sure we all had an very good time happy guys if you are visiting Morocco you must book your tour though this company &ask for Ibrahim & kamal
Thank you & see you soon!
Our tour was great. From riding the camels to learning about how life is outside of the busy city in Marrakech. The food we got to enjoy was delicious and authentic. We had a great time and our tour guide was very kind and lively. Always there to answer questions and take plenty of photos. Would definitely recommend!
This is a must when you are in Marrakech. Our tour guide:Hassan figo and the driver:Hassan Taznakht were both great. Hassan the driver drove us around safely. We were picked up on time at the hotel. The whole experience was wonderful, the food was authentic and amazing. The walk around the village, the waterfall and the camel ride were the highlights of the trip. This is a whole day trip so be prepared to return to Marrakech around 6 or 6:30 pm. Hassan, our tour guide was professional,friendly and helpful giving that I was traveling with my young son. He helped him with all the walking we did around the town. He even got him to ride a horse as we were walking downhill back to the car. He really enjoyed that. He also made sure the whole group was engaged the whole time. The visit to the Agafay desert was at the end of the trip so everyone was tired by then. But it was still beautiful as we got yo yake great pictures. The views were stunning. I highly recommend this tour with Hassan.
What an amazing day. Adil was our driver and couldn't do enough to make this an amazing trip for us. First the camel ride then a visit to a female cooperative making argan oil plus a delicious snack then a long drive into the mountains stopping to take pictures of the berber villages before our walking trek to the small waterfall and a fabulous 3 course lunch with lots of other trekkers. Then driving up to the plateau with stunning views, a quick stop off at a beautiful.lake then into the agafay desert which was also stunning. Thoroughly recommended and thanks again to Adil for making it such a brilliant day
Excellent one day trip for those who would like to leave Marrakech and see the surrounding specialities of the area (stone desert, berber villages, Atlas mountain, camel ride), but only have one free day for it. The staff was lovely, kind, shared a lot of interesting information with us. They were funny, made tons of pictures of us while camel riding etc. It definitely was not just a trip for sightseeing but as Omar is a kind local guy, due to his network we had unique opportunities to see how people really live their everyday lives there, even visiting a family in their own house. The staff handled those kind of emergency situations in a very professional way too like an injury. The time schedule was convenient even we have seen a lot of things, the mini bus was comfortable, clean and airconditioned.
Thank you guys, highly recommended, this day trip was the cherry on the top during our visit to Marrakech :)
Camel riding, mountain hike and immersion in the Berber cluture - amazing !

This tour was the highlight of our 7 days in Morocco. Our guide Karim picked us up in a very comfortable van. He speaks 7 languages and is funny, too. He is a Berber himself so he could answer all of our questions. First we rode camels dressed in Moroccan outfits- great photo op - with Karim taking pictures whenever we asked. Then on to a Berber market (we were lucky to be there on a market day). We hiked up into the Atlas mountains with a stop by a beautiful waterfall. Then on to his village where we had delicious lunch on a terrace looking out over the mountains and valley. Last a visit to his grandfather's home so that we could see what Berber life was like before they had electricity.Thanks, Karim, for your patience and kindness helping me cross the streams safely. One note : wear sturdy hiking shoes. You will be glad you did :).
Super Tag. Unser Fahrer Kamel war sowieso sehr cool und immer bemüht, dass sich alle wohl fühlen. Er hat uns auch nach der Ankunft zurück in Marrakesh noch durch die Gegend chauffiert, obwohl das wohl gar nicht seine Aufgabe gewesen wäre (Manche wollten noch Bier kaufen). Unser Guide Mohammed war sowieso sehr aufmerksam und hat uns noch zu sich nach Hause eingeladen auf einen Minz-Tee(logisch), hat uns sehr viel erzählt und man konnte ihn alles über Kultur und Leben der Berber fragen. Hat keine(auch teilweise etwas zu europäische) Antwort verweigert. Alles in allem : Ein Super-Tagesausflug, den ich jedem empfehlen kann, der gut zu Fuß ist, da eine "kleine" Wanderung" dabei ist, die für jeden gesunden Menschen machbar ist, sogar für mich....Jederzeit wieder.
Am Anfang skeptisch ob die Tour sich lohnt und ob der Service klappt, aber abschließend lässt sich sagen das die Tour unsere Erwartungen übertroffen hat. An einem Tag konnte man viele verschiedene vegetationen sehen. Oumar der Tour Guide war herzlich und konnte verständliches Englisch sprechen. Es gab keine versteckten Kosten.
Für den Ausflug haben wir uns kurzfristig entschieden. Buchung war unkompliziert und wir wurden vom Hotel abgeholt und wieder zurückgebracht. Wir hatten einen deutschen Reiseleiter gebucht, leider war es dann in englischer Sprache. Omar, unser Reiseleiter hat sich sehr viel Mühe gegeben und uns alles gut erklärt, obwohl mein englisch nicht so gut ist. Wir würden diesen Ausflug auch wieder buchen.
