Our trip to the Berber villages was absolutely terrific. Yousef, our guide was fantastic - helpful, informative and made sure we all had a very good day. The lunch was excellent and the camel ride great fun. We had a very good and considerate driver and I I recommend this trip highly.

Really enjoyed this tour. We went on our second day in Marrakech; it was a nice change to get out of the city and do and see something different. Got picked up close to our Riad and we were driven in a comfortable car our into countryside and eventually to Imlil. We had stopped to have breakfast sampling argan oil and Morrocan nutella and a couple of photography stops. We also had a camel ride, which we enjoyed. We then got to Imlil where we met our guide Hassan, who took us up through the valley, we walked for approx 2hrs, this was the main bit we were looking forward to - it was quite a walk, but the scenery was lovely, the weather was hot, but there was still snow on the mountains above us. Would love to see the valley in the summer when the trees are in bloom. Hassan was a great guide, personable and knowledgble. We then stopped for a lovely lunch and then got our lift back to Marrakech. A really good day. Would recommend.

A wonderful trip! Ibrahim was our guide and Aziz our driver, they were excellent! The mountains were beautiful and it was interesting see how the Argan oil was made. We stopped by a beautiful valley for pictures as well. The camel ride was also fun and they dress you up in authentic clothing, which adds to the charm. Ibrahim was excellent with all of the guests, ensuring that all were comfortable and keeping up. I will say- the hike is a little bit strenuous so would recommend comfortable and sturdy shoes.
