An amazing day out to Agafay Desert and the valleys of the Atlas Mountains. Abdul, our local guide, was a brilliant host and took great care of us! The views from the hike were impressive and it was amazing experience to visit the local Berber villages in the valleys.

A really fun day out seeing more of Morocco outside of the city. Our guide Said was really friendly, as was our driver Abdul. Both made us all feel very welcome, and taught us a lot about Moroccan culture.

Our tour guide was helpful and informative. He was funny and energetic as well. Keep it up!

It was very beautifull and the guide was very nice!
