The excursion itself was breathtaking, but what really made it special was our tour guide, Rachid Amzil. We felt safe in his care from the start, and that quickly turned into running around the mountains laughing and having a blast! We could not recommend him enough!

Amazing day trip with Karim

I really enjoyed the one day trip to the Imlil valley. The tour was very well organised with many things to see without being too overwhelming. One of the best surprises of the whole trip was definitely the tour guide Karim, a smart and very well prepared young man who was able to convey us his passion and love for these places. I highly recommend this unique experience to get  in touch with the Berber culture and see some breathtaking landscapes in the Atlas mountains.

This was THE ABSOLUTE BEST part of our trip to Marrakech. The driver and our tourguide Said were nothing short of amazing, professional, and fun! I loved the pit stops we had throughout the day: Berber souks, argan oil cooperative, market area in Imlil, then began the hike to the Berber village where we had tea on a rooftop with an unreal view in the middle of the Altas mountains! then we hiked to a waterfall, and finished by hiking down to lunch at a cafe with the mountains in the background. The driver then picked us up and brought us to ride camels for as long as we desired we did a quick 15 minute ride.

A few tips:
1. RESEARCH WEATHER AND BRING APPROPRIATE CLOTHING/FOOTWEAR
Our hike was in February and there was so much snow, requiring us to walk through snow, slush, and wet mud during 80 of the hike. Our New Balances did fair, but snow or hiking boots may be desired. It was also substantially more chilly in the mountains than in the city of Marakech.

2. BE OPEN TO ADVENTURE
You'll see a handful of animals goats, sheep, chicken and traverse different types of terrain and it will be simply wonderful.

3. ASK QUESTIONS
As I mentioned, our tourguide was fantastic. Not only does he speak English, Arabic, and French the three main languages spoken, but Spanish as well. He grew up in the mountains and is thus very knowledgeable. He knew most of the passerbys on the tour. He'll explain to you differences in religious groups, culture, lifestyle, and so on.

4. BE FLEXIBLE
We made no other plans that day other than to eat dinner at some point. We were picked up at 9am and dropped off around 6pm. The tourguide mentioned we could do a shorter hike if desired but we were open and let him show us everything.

Overall such a good time. Highly recommend! Well worth the price and then some.

Highly recommend this day trip! Our guide Issmail was extremely knowledgeable and personable. He definitely made this trip worth it. This trip gives you a little of everything from camel rides to hiking to an argan oil cooperative and a really great lunch! Will be telling anyone heading to Marrakech to book this and to request Issmail. Driver Omar was also very friendly and a great driver.

We had a great day! Omar and Omar were very friendly and great guides too. Would definitely recommend if you want to see and do something different. It was my first time riding a camel and we really enjoyed the walk in the mountains, the views were amazing!

That was an excellent end of my 14-days journey through Morocco with awesome views of mountains, snow and small Berber villages around Imlil. The trip was flawless. Car transfer, explanations, tea, dinner, trekking - all things just couldn't be better.

And I want pay special tribute to my guide Batata everybody know him by this nickname cause he likes potatoes who is very kind and attentive man. He lives there and knows everything. And he is opposite of a beggars that you'll see everywhere in Morocco. With dignity and bona fides he is doing his job for the family and village. Thank you and good luck in your life, dear Batata! I definitely recommend him when booking this trip.

The tour was so nice! We were guided by Omar, a local guy that showed us his house and we drunk tea with his family! It was all beautiful! He explained us a lot about the traditions and the culture in a Berber Village. Was so interesting and fun at the same time! Really worth to go! Giuseppe and Daniel
