What value for money!!! Thank you so much for this experience!!It was definitely the best part of our week in Morocco. Our personal driver Muhammad was great, he picked us up outside our guest house and brought us to where they make Argan oil. Throughout the journey he stopped in beautiful locations so that we could take some photos. We then met our guide Abdul, a local of the Imlil area, who brought us on a beautiful hike. It was absolutely breathtaking. We are so grateful for our time with Abdul, he was so friendly and knowledgeable about the land. We couldn't ask for a better guide!! Thanks for all the laughs too! A very very tasty lunch was served in a beautiful location with the surrounding mountains as its backdrop. It was such a pleasure to walk through the villages and see/meet the locals. After lunch and tea we then drove out to Agafay desert where we were given colourful garments to wear during the relaxed camel ride. Completely unforgettable! Thank you Abdul and Muhammad!

This tour was a good experience. We were able to see the small berbere villages and specially the market that they organize every saturday to buy, sell or exchange products. A real time machine experience. The van was comfy and our driver Khalid did a wonderful job giving us some context and making a few stops to enjoy the scenery. We tried local products, made a small 1h trail to the mountains, saw the waterfalls, ate a homemade chicken tajine and even had time to visit the desert of Agafay and ride a camel. Our guides Khalid and Abdul were kind and paid attention to the details. Their explanations were clear and they made us feel so welcomed! Our advice is to bring some money to buy some local products because there you are buying directly at the source - the real local. Also, don't forget to go on a Saturday so you can experience the market!

Very nice tour, driver showed up on time. He was very polite. Khalid was explaining everything. The guide in Imlil was with Abdul, and again he was super nice, walking and hiking was enjoyable. Lunch was very good as well. There was no rush on any part of the tour. The camel ride was very fun too. It was about 30 min so it wasn’t short. Return to the hotel was very smooth too. Khalid stopped on multiple scenic places for taking photos.

Such an amazing day out! The driver was lovely who brought us to all the stops and Mohamed Larbi the tour guide who showed us all through the mountains was amazing! Definitely recommend

It was a great experience. Our guide Abdul was really nice, he explained us everything and even helped with pictures. We also drink a tea in his place. The camel ride was nice too.
