Our guide Mustapha amazouz and driver hassan made this trip amazingly good. The experiences themselves were fantastic with a visit to a Berber market, the small berber villages, the Argan oil cooperative, a nice hike to some beautiful waterfalls, delicious Berber lunch with a stunning view of the valley and the mountains, a visit to our guide's own home for tea, driving up the mountain side and into the Agafay desert for a fun camel ride and tea with incredible views. Really amazing value for money, there was never pressure to buy any extras, quite the opposite (although we felt like buying some nice locally made Berber souvenirs). This trip was made one to remember by Mustapha and hassan, so extremely friendly, attentative and open. We never needed anything and we parted as new friends.

Our guide Mustapha was so friendly and welcoming. I wasn't feeling well and was able to push the class by a day. The fact that the transportation is included you cannot beat the price. Walking to get the vegetables locally was a great to experience and everyone at any level can participate in the cooking. My husband and I had such a good time and enjoyed the company of everyone. We would gladly sign up again and maybe even stay the night at the Guest House where food is prepared. You won't be disappointed- book this activity!

I could not recommend this excursion higher! The driver and family all made us feel incredibly welcome. Not once did we hesitate to ask anything and the feel of it all was so authentic. Not only was it informative the food we picked and made ourselves was delicious… thanks to the guidance of their family. To top it all off we had a lovely walk to a nearby waterfall that we were able to cool off in! Thank you again to the family for welcoming us into your home!

It was an extremely fun experience, the hosts were very welcoming and made us feel at very at home and we enjoyed our day so much. The experience was amazing value for money and I would've even paid more for the same.

This tour was great! I enjoyed the time in the kitchen. Ahmed was a great guide and Fatilina was an amazing teacher and host!
