The guide was amazingly friendly and helpful, helped me buy couple of stuff and was very flexible the driver as well was cool. The visit itself was intresting for my foreign friend, the camel ride was intresting I got to drive the whole group as well, we had nice degustation of Argan oil and a nice lunch. Totally recommend.
A highly recommended trip and a welcome escape from the bustle of Marrakech. Pick up was very simple, and our drive was in a very comfortable car with an informative and knowledgable driver, and whilst being a long drive, the scenery was nothing short of stunning. Several stops included multiple scenic stops for photograph opportunities, a slightly too long stop at an Argan oil production centre, a camel ride which was admittedly very simple just a back and forth ride but the scenery of the area was nice and heck, it’s still the experience of riding a camel! The trip truly took wing when we were handed over to our local Berber guide Hassan, who first led us around a lovely village market before accompanying us and our driver (also named Hassan) further into the mountains. Truly not just the highlight of the trip but the main memory of the trip was when we left the car and began our walk with Hassan. Yes it is a long walk and you should be prepared to get minorly out of breath. First led to a lovely house with a rooftop that grants the most incredible view, to be fed an outstanding tajine as part of a three course lunch. Also taken to a small waterfall, but then to my favourite part, Hassan’s own village and surrounding area, which despite us being a little tired by this point, was a borderline life changing experience. Coming across these wonderful people and their way of life, which to many of us can seem like a step back in time, was just wonderful, and all nestled in the most amazing scenery that you would scarcely believe to be real. All the while accompanied by our generous, friendly and attentive guide. His language skills were a little bit basic but it didn’t detract from how much we appreciated him and his community. A highly recommended trip for anyone in the area wishing to make the most of Morocco, and especially those wishing for a breath of fresh air outside the madness of the city!
We booked this tour pretty last minute and did not really know what to expect having never visited Morocco or Marrakech before. Hassan the guide and his driver came to pick us up directly from the hotel, and then drove us to various stops, including an Argan Oil cooperative, for a camel ride, a walk over a bridge in the mountains, and then for a trek in the Atlas Mountains and finishing with lunch in a Berber house. The scenery was breath-taking, and they made sure to ask exactly what we wanted to do and tailored the day to the length of route we wanted to take, and made sure that we were happy the whole time. Hassan really made the day, he was so knowledgeable, and great to chat to, and he kept us amused on the trek, in particular when he and I laughed together at my husband who kept slipping down the rocks in his unsuitable shoes ha! I would highly recommend taking a tour with these guys, it really made our short break in Morocco something very memorable:
Well ,it didn't start as well as it should have. Day before the tour we had rang the company in Marrakesh to confirm the pickup time for the next day.Were told that all was good and the pick up was for 9.00am. We were picked up at 11.00am. They call it Morocco time.
But once on the mountains it was a different story. Our guide Rachid was absolutely amazing. The poor guy couldn't apologise on behalf of the organisers for being so late. He spoke very well and his knowledge was exemplary. He was first class. The lunch was very good. All the people including the driver were very good except the organisers in Marrakesh.The review rating is low because of being picked 2 HOURS late otherwise it definitely would have been 5 stars.
One of the highlight of our trip! Hassan team was simply amazing. If you are going to Marrakech, this is a must do trip. The Atlas mountain is so beautiful and the guides extraordinary. Lunch in a very small berber village was awesome. Shukraan for such wonderful moments!
This was a very exciting trip. We were only two on the trip, and our local guide Rashid was very friendly, and gave us a very good tour and answered all our questions. The area is amazing with beautiful landscapes. The lunch was good as well.
