Amazing day trip to Atlas Mountains and Agafay Desert! Driving there was nice as well. We stopped at several view points to take pictures, since the landscape was pretty impressive and diverse. We also visited an argan oil cooperative, where the production of argan products was being explained - I personally did not feel obligated to buy something, everyone was really nice. We had a small breakfast there as well. In Atlas Mountains we took a hike to a waterfall, it was also possible to ride a mule for most of the hike (not included). Later on, we had lunch with salad and tajine. The highlight of the day was riding out in Agafay desert. Such an amazing experience. The horses were well-behaved, it was possible to ride fast when experienced. It was so much fun! I want to thank our tour guide Omar and our driver Aziz for an amazing day trip in Morocco! I definitely made some great memories that I will forever cherish.

The owner Mr Abrahim provided us the best customer service and ensure our outmost satisfaction regarding this tour. I had a wonderful time exploring in Imlil valley knowing the berber locals there, their life, their tradition and culture and amazed with the magnificent surroundings around the mountain eat lunch at a berber house see the beautiful falls and socialize with other locals. We end our day by a 45-minute camel ride with lots of free mint tea, lots of pictures taken by our guide Khale, he is also very kind and he takes us to the suppliers market where everything is so cheap we are so lucky that we able to go there since it's only open every tuesday overall my experience with this tour company is such a great time will come back for more!

Great experience! The driver was fun and caring, and we saw a lot of things during one day though it wasn't tiring. The lunch was superb!

We had our excursion with guide Brahim. He was very gentle and friendly. We had a wonderful day with a great lunch. Highly recommended!

This is the best value excursion in Marrakech. Driver was very nice and the guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. A big thumbs up!
