    Our trip to the Berber villages was absolutely terrific. Yousef, our guide was fantastic - helpful, informative and made sure we all had a very good day. The lunch was excellent and the camel ride great fun. We had a very good and considerate driver and I I recommend this trip highly.

    A well-balanced and paced tour, with a very attentive guide and driver. The walking activities, camels are very nice The meal very correct with a nice point of view What we find however to complain about: the mini bus had the windows too low for you to appreciate the landscape (Unlike the one taken for Essaouira of the same capacity and ideal)

    Really enjoyed this tour. We went on our second day in Marrakech; it was a nice change to get out of the city and do and see something different. Got picked up close to our Riad and we were driven in a comfortable car our into countryside and eventually to Imlil. We had stopped to have breakfast sampling argan oil and Morrocan nutella and a couple of photography stops. We also had a camel ride, which we enjoyed. We then got to Imlil where we met our guide Hassan, who took us up through the valley, we walked for approx 2hrs, this was the main bit we were looking forward to - it was quite a walk, but the scenery was lovely, the weather was hot, but there was still snow on the mountains above us. Would love to see the valley in the summer when the trees are in bloom. Hassan was a great guide, personable and knowledgble. We then stopped for a lovely lunch and then got our lift back to Marrakech. A really good day. Would recommend.
