We had a wonderful day walking through the Atlas mountains with our guide. He was very friendly and professional. We started with a walk to his village, had tea at his mother's house (who was also lovely) and then set off on our walk up the mountains, often stepping up large rock stairs and hills, so it does take some walking! After the walk we stopped at a house and had a private lunch of tagine with a view over the snow toppled Atlas mountains. I would highly recommend this tour. Well worth it.

This was an excellent introduction for us to the Atlas mountains and the Berber villages at the foot of Toubkal. Our guide Abdul, himself local to one of the villages, was very knowledgeable, very genuine and very friendly. He seemed to know everyone we passed on the streets and mountain paths! He changed his tour plan when he learnt how much we love hiking and we ended actually staying the night in a beautiful hotel overlooking the mountains instead of heading back to Marrakesh. We had a lovely, fresh tajine lunch in a local household and had an extra hike to the nearby pass before watching the sunset over these beautiful mountains and kind, genuine people.

A great tour and chance to see the real Moroccan life outside of marrrakesh. We saw a lot in one day, from markets and amazing landscapes and Berber villages and homes. Was definitely worth doing the trip and a rich cultural experience, friendly guide and the tour was relaxing and fun for me and my mother.
