Many thanks for Abdul and Ibrahim. They were courteous and wonderful. Took time to bond with us. The visits to the mountain was spectacular and the camel ride was impressive. I was initially worried about the kids as they were under 10 but to my surprise they enjoyed every bit of it. Abdul and Ibrahim worked with our pace and were always checking to see if we are OK. I cant thank you ENOUGH! Thanks for making this so memorable.
Excellent trip to the Atlas mountain. Driver and our guide Ibrahim were very nice and helpful. We spent very nice day in Marroco, views and lunch were amazing, only 6 people in the group, pick up in hotel was without problem, definitely recommend this trip.
I would really recommend this day trip. Such a great insight into the berber lifestyle. Abdul, our driver was excellent and was with us until we met our guide in the mountains and returned us safely to Marrakech. Our guide, Mustafa was brilliant, helpful, welcoming, so happy and totally made our day. The camel ride was perfect length and well worth it for the experience. Both tea and lunch at a berber house were excellent - we sat on a balcony overlooking the valley below and snow capped mountains above. Perfect.
We really enjoyed everything about the tour and the mix of various activities.
The only recommendation is for Viator to add a dedicated textbox at booking time to enter the hotel and not as a side note.
We got an email from the agency a say before the tour and arranged it though, but I was wondering about it.
Fantastic day out! Great value, great experience, great tour guide - thanks Ibrahim!!

This was by far one of the top highlights of our trip to Marrakech and largely down to our brilliant tour guide Ibrahim! He was super friendly, kind, helpful, welcoming and knowledgeable - we could not praise him highly enough and really made our day fantastic!
This was a great day out and very good value for money. We got picked up from our hotel at 9am and, after collecting another tourist couple, then drove up into the Atlas mountains in a lovely 7-seater car, stopping off along the way at a Argon oil co-operative for Moroccan breakfast/tea and multiple sites for photos. Once we arrived at the Berber village the majority of the trip was a great hike through the Atlas mountain valleys where we were taken to our tour guides home for more tea then on to see waterfalls and trek through the mountains. After which we went to a Berber homestay for a typical Moroccan home cooked lunch which was delicious and plentiful! On our way back we stopped off for a 20 minute camel ride before driving back to our hotel. There was no pressure at the end to tip the tour guide but I would definitely recommend doing so as it's well deserved and I wish we had more money on us to give.
This was one of the best, most memorable trips we did in Marrakesh(we are family of 4, children aged 9 and 14yrs). It’s well organised, the pick up was on time, mini bus was comfortable, driver was a very safe driver and the whole trip was planned out well. Our guide Rachid was excellent. He was polite, communicated well, didn’t hurry us up during the long walk and checked on each one us appropriately. Visiting Berber family at the village was a wonderful experience, they were so warm and welcoming. The hike/ walk itself through the valleys was tiring but very refreshing in the midst of nature. After the long walk lunch at the guest house was absolutely delicious. They catered to our vegetarian diet and the guest house was clean and well maintained. In the end the camel ride was well enjoyed by all of us ,especially kids.
Overall a very good day trip, we would highly recommend it for fellow travellers.
we got picked up by Rachid just after 9am and got back to the hotel at 6.30/7 pm
Rachid took us to 3 valleys at Atlas mountain, we saw how they make argan oil , we had 20 min camel ride by a little river ( all dressed up) ,we had a massive walk round the third village( so please wear comfortable shoes) and finished off the day by a delicious lunch at a Berber village house. It was my husbands 50th the day before so Rachid organised a lovely surprise by asking the cook to make him a birthday cake and he also got my husband a little Bracelet as a gift.
Over all I can t thank Rachid enough for the memorable day that he created.
Also I would like to thank the driver ( appologies as I can’t remember his name) for driving extra careful the whole day.
100% recommend the trip and the boys who made it enjoyable
We stayed in central Medina, so our pick up point was the main market in Marrakesh - El fna. We went to Atlas in comfortable Mercedes with 2 other couples. We stopped only in argaon oil factory, where we had a small breakfast (bread with argan oil food and mint tea). Then we went to a closest camel ride (in nice nature) - i really enjoeyed that and then we went directly to Atlas village, where we met our very good guide Hassan. With him we walked around 15 minutes to berber house, where we had a really good lunch (local soup, tajini with meat, fruits and tea). Then we continued by walking to the nice water fall and back - it last around 1,5 hour (or more if your group want) walking throught the forrest.Then we went back to Marrakesh by car. Overall it was really nice trip and I recommend to see the berber village and life there. People were very nice there.
After searching through many different sites to find a tour of the Atlas Mountains we chose this one and had a wonderful time. Being picked up and dropped off at our Riad in the morning was very convenient and easy. Our guide, Ibrahim, was awesome and we really enjoyed having him show us around.
It was a unique experience getting to tour three different villages. We stopped and had tea in a house at our first village. After that we hiked up to see a waterfall, I was not expecting this and it was a lovely experience. I especially loved the lunch spot in the last village. The views were absolutely stunning and the food was good and authentic. This was my first time doing a booked day tour and it was a really nice experience.
Also, we did book last minute the night before. Since they pick you up from your Riad we did not have time to communicate early enough, but we called right away in the morning. They were super accommodating and it was still on schedule.
Overall we really liked this tour and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to visit the Atlas Mountains and enjoy an experience with such ease. We also visited mid March and the weather was perfect for a hike in the mountains as it was warm in the sun and not too hot since you are moving around most of the day.
