Fantastic experience. All well organised. Ismail was a great driver, all for us. Abdullah of the Berber family welcomed us into his home, pampering us with tea, warm bread, oil and honey. In Imlil, we met Rachid, a friendly guide who took us to the waterfalls and was able to show us beautiful views from his house. The stops were perfect, even the one at the cooperative of women who produce argan oil. A good lunch in a garden all to ourselves restored us. The camel ride is also fun before returning to Marrakech on time. Tour from 9am to 5pm. Thanks for the wonderful experience. I recommend bringing some coin. A thought is always welcome by all. Francis and family

We were picked up from our hotel on time by our wonderful guide Abderrahim. He spoke excellent English and explained clearly what the programme was for the day which was as advertised. We particularly enjoyed taking the mountain road from the Agafay Desert area up and over into the Asni valley and the National Park. Abderrahim was full of local knowledge and his passion for his home area was evident. He answered all of our questions with great enthusiasm. We would highly recommend him to other travelers.

I enjoyed the tour a great deal! Our guide, Youssef was a very nice person and also a knowledgeable guide. He answered patiently at all our questions about the Berber culture and about the places we saw during the tour. The lunch provided in one of the Berber villages (Chicken tajine with vegetables) i can say it was the best tajine I had during my stay in Marrakech :) I have only words of praise for this tour! Best regards, Youssef! :)
