What people are saying about Imlil
Good value trip to see some of the countryside outside Marrakech. The stops on the way were good for photos of the views and the little oil production talk was interesting. Didn't feel pushed into buying anything, although did get a souvenir anyway. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable, we spoke in both French and English. I don't think we would have been able to learn as much if speaking in just English, but could have discussed most things without a problem. Again there were items for purchase on our walk to see the falls and around the villages, but nothing pushy. The lunch was great, catering for a vegetarian, and our walk back and drive home were fine. Not particularly strenuous for anyone in a somewhat fit shape. Good shoes would help, but not necessary, mine had poor grip, but I managed fine. Very little waiting around compared to what we expected from reviews of group tours. Only criticism is aircon wasn't turned on in the car, but we didn't ask. Overall a good excursion.
In the beginning there was a little misunderstanding about the pick-up point (it never turned who misunderstood whom after all, but this can be easily improved, as the participants need to submit their phone numbers when registering to the tour, so somebody should store these numbers and call the participant real-time, if there is a misunderstanding) but our guide, Mustapha handled very well the atmosphere, he made sure that all participants felt comortable when we hit the road. The camel ride was super exciting and entertaining with authentic clothing and all, the stop at the argan cooperative was OK, but the product demonstration was a bit long for me, the tour in the mountains was like a travel to a hidden, mystic part of the world. Mustapha was very enthusiastic, as he was from that Berber region, so the info he shared was clearly coming from the heart. The waterfall is beautiful. The Berber Tajine by the local house was the best Tajine we had in our whole Moroccan trip.
This excursion was lovely. Our driver Abdul was very friendly. We visited an Argan oil production site and a local market with him and that was great to see. The camel ride of 30 minutes was a bit too long though in our opinion. 10 minutes would have been enough. The hike was really nice, but beware that your condition must be okay to do it: Sometimes it were steep climbs and it was a 2 hour walk in total. The lunch in the local village was amazing with a wonderful view on the Atlas mountains. Would definitely recommend.
Amazing trip, unusual in that it exceeded our expectations, the climbing was just challenging enough, most of the route was on level ground, our guide Rachid, who gets married on Saturday, was superb, as was our driver Hassan. A delicious lunch of lentils, salad and chicken tagine awaited us in a picturesque berber village, the views were spectacular and we all said one of the best days we had had for a long time, could not recommend more highly
We started the day with a camel ride led by Mustafa who had a very great personality and able to communicate in many languages during our camel ride. Then we were off to the Atlas Mountains where our guide, Ibrahim, a local, was probably the most brilliant and humble guide of all time. Highly recommend!
