We enjoyed so much the trip with Said! He was such a fantastic guide and gave us so much time to explore, while giving us the best tips and interesting spots to visit in each location. He also showed us a few places which were not mentioned in the itinerary while being a good driver. He doesn't rush you even if you end up spending more time than the scheduled. He was a very polite guide, competent and we totally recommend him! Such an amazing day!

Highly recommended, Abdu our driver picked us up on time at our Riad, the trip was very pleasant making several stops to see the landscapes. Abdu is very nice and he made the old man wonderful. The guide for the hike to the waterfall at Inmil was also very good. , highly recommended trip.

We had a wonderful day. Booked a tour with a group, got a private tour (probably because of the low season). Ottomane was our tour guide. He showed us all the beautiful and special places of the Middle Atlas Mountains. Thanks to him, this was a great experience.
