This was superb! You’re probably weighing up a few similar tours, so here’s why this is probably the best.. the lunch is out of this world and served in a private location overlooking the valleys, at 2000m up. The guide is incredibly friendly and improves the feel of the trip significantly. The views and walks you’re offered are just unparalleled. Do it!

We had a wonderful private tour in the Atlas Montains. Started early in the morning at 8:30 like it was planned. Marouane came to pick us up at our Villa. We went to the 5 Valleys. We stopped and had a 1hour long hike to the waterfalls in Ourika. Marouane was always friendly, making jokes and very talkative in both French and English. He knows a lot about the history of Marroco and Atlas. We stopped in Sidi Fares where we had the best Tajine and Couscous ever in locals house (not a restaurant). The lunch has been made with love by Berbère Women from Sidi Fares. The landscape is breathtaking in the Atlas and the whole experience was truly authentic like we were expecting. Special thanks to our guide Marouane who made it all happen. It was so good to have him with us the whole day. We recommend this excursion 100%
