Abdul was amazing! I must add everyone I liased with was extremely punctual and ensured comfortability right from pick up, through the experience and until we were dropped off. It was lovely to be picked up on time by Lahcen, we were initially taken on a beautiful journey through Marrakesh and then towards the Berber villages. Abdul, our tour guide, then took us through to visit a wonderful set of women who showed us more about Argan oil and it's many uses, a zip-line around the Atlas Mountains, his hometown and then the beautiful waterfall that surrounded it. I honestly couldn't have planned a better day if I did it myself. What an experience! Wouldn’t hesitate to do it again.

Best tour. The tour guide Said is a young man who is most devoted to his trade. The consummate host, he looked after us with his personal brand of hospitality which included serving us our food, being our hiking guide in addition to being our personal holiday planner. This tour took us to the most picturesque waterfall and for those who hiked all the way, we we’re rewarded with the most delicious freshly squeezed blood orange juice right at the source! This moderately priced tour included a most deliciously targine lunch served in a spectacular restaurant with jaw dropping views. Highly recommended. Thank you Said.

The entire experience was absolutely amazing from start to finish. SAÏD is a very knowledgeable guy and really friendly, hope to see him soon. If you book somewhere else you will really regret it, trust me. Berber breakfast and lunch provided along with water and mint tea. Everything was incredible.

This was an incredible experience with an incredible guide. My guide, Zin, was a top man - chatty, (very) funny, kind and gave me an amazing two day tour of the foothills. And he fixes a very good lunch mid-hike! One of the best things I did in Morocco and would strongly recommend to others.

My favourite part of my Marrakech trip! Saïd is an excellent, charismatic guide- perfect amount of time in each location, always engaging and eye-opening. Please don’t hesitate to book!
