    We got picked up at our Rihad. The driver was very friendly and on time. We drove to the mountains where we met our guide, who was very sympathetic and spoke very good English. He explained a lot and was very competent. The camel ride was beautiful and the walk as well. The lunch was one of the highlights, because the view was absolutely stunning and the food delicious. After lunch we visited the local berger Market and we met the friends of our guide. My mum and me felt very welcome and it was a great experience. We would always book this tour again.

    I rarely write a review but the wonderful day trip we experienced deserves to be shared. We highly recommend booking this day trip with Rachid. You will experience exactly what the description promises. Mustafa, was safe and friendly driver. Rachid, was the perfect guide throughout the day. The lunch is superb, the most beautiful fresh salad followed by a Fantastic Tagine and fresh fruit, on a roof terrace drenched in sunshine amongst the peaks of the mountains. The trip is great value for money and we had a great day, a combination of excellent people and the wonderful Morocco. Thank you Rachid for such a organised and perfect day trip.

    Meine Tichter und ich waren nur zu zweit bei dieser Tour. Unser Guide, Abdul, hat uns pünktlich am Treffpunkt abgeholt und ins Gebirge gefahren. Er hat uns einige Sachen erklärt, war nicht aufdringlich in seiner Art, eher sehr ruhig und nett und hat auch unsere " Ruhe" gelassen. Das Wandern war auch sehr schön, in einem mäßigten Tempo. Essen zum Schluss sehr lecker
