What people are saying about Al Haouz

Amazing experience! We are already thinking about our next trip! Our guide Marwan was fantastic from start to finish. He met us straight off the bus and checked we had all the right equipment (there’s a hire shop that allows you to hire anything you may not have - we hired crampons and hats). The first day is beautiful and our guide gave us some insight into the area as we walked up. Hussein cooked a massive and lovely meal for lunch & dinner. The second day we set off at 4:30 ish, Marwan was the right amount of supportive and cautious and made us feel very safe on the mountain. Reached the top for an unforgettable sunrise. Great experience and have already recommended to a friend!

Could not more highly recommend touring with this company! From start to finish they went above and beyond to ensure our group had a great experience. Due to unfortunate weather, we were turned away on Day 1 of the hike, but given my tight time frame the company was nice enough within hours notice to arrange a solo single day private ascent. Truly great family run business, will plan on using in the future!

Was a good hiking experience, our guide Hassan met us and took us through the mountains along with his team both took care of the group and answered all our questions, also provided a good accommodation food for the 2 days trial. I totally recommend it.

It was an amazing trip, definitely the highlight of our Moroccon journey. Our driver, Ilias was very friendly, helpful, welcoming and came prepared. The whole experience was extraordinary, unforgetable.

Mohmed Sabiil our guide was very good and the whole experience excellent, despite rain on the 1st day. Advice wear hiking boots, bring waterproofs if hiking Oct+. Plus take water with you.
