Great experience, would highly recommend! Our tour guide Nour was very friendly and took us around the Berber villages where we learned of their culture and witnessed their way of living. We also went to the waterfalls in Imlil where you’re guided up for a hike (make sure you wear the right clothing for this). The desert was not sandy but its background are the snowy atlas mountains which look amazing in pictures. The camel ride was the highlight of our trip, we got to wear the desert attire and took a ride around on the camels. Unfortunately because the weather was bad on the day we travelled, we weren’t able to see the sunset (so make sure to check the weather before you book). All in all, its a great tour if you’re in for a short trip in Marakesh.

Excellent day trip!
