A really good experience - you see how berber life and good nature

It's a great tour! It's 8-9 hours tour but you see a lot. Go to an argan farm, what is interresting, see how berber live - go into a house, and last but not least the waterfall. It's also a great trip to escape the summer heat. You driver was really nice and kind and the guide mohamet was amazing. The tour the hill can be a bit hart, but he was helping everybody and looking after them. You have the stunning few. And you eat in a berbervillage for lunch what was good after the hike. A really enjoy the trip anf it's super cheap. Thanks!

Wunderbarer tagesausflug mit klasse Guide.

This tour is great to see the Atlas Mountains and to get an insight of the life Of berbers. Our guide abdel picked us up at our meeting point on time. While driving to the mountains he explained us many things and with a lot of details about maroccon life. If you don’t speak french he tells you everything in English again. After making a nice hike to the waterfalls with a local guide Jamal (no extra money needed but a tip is well seen) we proceeded to the other valleys and our next stop, the lunch at a typical Berber family house in the mountains. The lunch was great and we had a beautiful view from there. While driving and stopping at different viewpoints, Abdel is giving you a pretty good insight of the bad circumstances many Berber villages have and some political issues as well. However, he is very entertaining and kind! I would recommend the tour to everybody who wants to see as many things as possible within a day (but not exhausting!)

Great value for money. Fun, factual and friendly.

What a lovely day. Or tour guide, ElAlaoui was lovely and really gave his all for us. The group was small (eight of us in total) and by the end of the first valley we were all getting along and chatting. Always a good sign. Our route was stunning and stuff like stopping to see how argon oil is made was optional (perfect as we had all seen it in the markets). Leaving us more time for the actual tour. The hike part was very easy, if you've never hiked in your life you will be able to do this with only the smallest amount of sweat in your forehead! Plus the waterfall at the end is worth it. The rest of the trip was done in the car, lots of stopping points to take photos. Which was perfect as it gave us all as chance to stretch and take it all in. The highlight, however, was the lunch. Bloody hell was that delicious! You have not as chicken tagine until you have had one cooked by a local. Mind is blown. All in all, you need to go on this trip. Totally worth every penny. Thank you!

Excellent, informative, great guide, great lunch

Our guide Mido was excellent. He provided good information, was a very careful and good driver, and had a wonderful sense of humor. He offered us some additional stops of interest along the way which added to the success of the trip. I would recommend this trip to others although the waterfall excursion was somewhat challenging (some rock climbing and some poorly constructed wooden walkways).

A most enjoyable day into the valleys of the High Atlas

I liked the walk up the side-valley from the village to the waterfall, then up the hillside to the eagles nest café....wonderful view. I enjoyed the lunch at the Berber village, with good food and again a good view down into the valley.
