What people are saying about Al Haouz

Great experience, would highly recommend! Our tour guide Nour was very friendly and took us around the Berber villages where we learned of their culture and witnessed their way of living. We also went to the waterfalls in Imlil where you’re guided up for a hike (make sure you wear the right clothing for this). The desert was not sandy but its background are the snowy atlas mountains which look amazing in pictures. The camel ride was the highlight of our trip, we got to wear the desert attire and took a ride around on the camels. Unfortunately because the weather was bad on the day we travelled, we weren’t able to see the sunset (so make sure to check the weather before you book). All in all, its a great tour if you’re in for a short trip in Marakesh.

Had a wonderful trip with Mohammed! This trip to Imlil was a well organised escape from Marrakesh to see the Atlas Mountians. Mohammed drove very safely, shared some interesting facts about Morocco and we made many stops that felt very authentic and free from tour groups. We really enjoyed the tea in a Berber home and the included lunch was delicious and in such a peaceful setting overlooking the village of Imlil. It was a short walk to see the waterfall and we were given many photo opportunities and time to take in the surroundings. Mohammed is very friendly and fun and I would recommend booking with him if you want a nice and hassle free day trip to the Atlas Mountains.

extraordinary experience in the desert that we will never forget, but above all, a human adventure that touched our hearts. Quad… dromedary… tea break in a dream setting… a delicious tajine… a wonderful welcome with equally wonderful people… To do absolutely, they even deserve 6 stars!
