Full description
Your driver will pick you up from your Marrakech accommodation in the morning to begin your drive to the valley. Along the way you’ll get your first glimpses of the High Atlas Mountains including snow capped peaks, depending on the time of year. You will visit a women cooperative for argan trees then take a camel ride in Moulay Brahim Valley. You will arrive at your host's home and take a short walk through the village to the family home. Enjoy a fresh breakfast of all local products before you take a longer walk through the villages and valley (optional). Before lunch, visit the historic 12th Century Tin Mal Mosque as well as see how clay tajines are made – and possibly try your hand at making them as well. After you’ve worked up an appetite, return to the family home and dig into a delicious home cooked lunch with seasonal products. Your driver will return to bring you back to Marrakech. This experience gives you an opportunity to see life in a local Berber village.

    Exotic experience, driver and perfect guide. Improvement points: no prior contact with the receptive - I had to contact him twice - departure of the excursion 1 hour late compared to the indicated schedule - we had to cancel our end-of-day meetings - Please note: the mentioned sites have a panorama stop - the journey takes 2.5 hours to the mosque with a photo break on the way. Camel ride or horse ride: avoid - unless really a first experience - try, 30 minutes back and forth on a stony roadside road - no breathtaking scenery, ??????

    An unforgettable experience. First of all, our driver Hassan was very friendly, polite, and a gentleman. There are lots of trips to the Atlas Mountains available, but a great driver and guide makes a lot of difference. Our first stop was at an Argan Oil cooperative. We were also served refreshments and tea here, which was very lovely. There was no pressure to buy anything at all, during the time we were there. Tip: if you're planning to buy organic, natural argan oil - buy it from here. The feel of their argan oil on your skin is incomparable to those you find in the Medina. We then began our ascent to the Atlas Mountains. We stopped at a beautiful Mosque which was built in the early 13th century. This was my favourite part, as the Mosque was placed with a backdrop of the beautiful mountains. It was also very tranquil and calm. Afterwards, we were invited to a local Berber family's home for lunch. The lunch was delicious, and their hospitality was heartwarming.

    The trip was very well organized, We saw places less frequented by tourists which we liked very much. The guide was very nice and helpful, we felt safe. In addition, a traditional dinner with a Berber family makes the trip stay in our memory for a long time. Thank you !!!
