    This day was one of the best I’ve experienced in life. I cannot express how much fun I had and how kind and professional the tour guides were. This was there first booking since lockdown and I was worried about it all, especially being a solo traveler- but the tour guides were so professional and pretty much did everything I asked, picked me up on time, opened doors for me, stopped to take pictures etc. I felt like royalty! I especially enjoyed the Atlas Mountains with Ibrahim! He was so amazing and helpful. Lunch cooked by his family left me full for a whole day! And the hike was incredible!!The camel ride was just perfect!! I can’t fault this day at all, and at such a great price! I highly recommend booking these amazing people and I will be booking again on my next trip! Thank you so much and good luck post lockdown!!

    Absolutely fantastic trip, worth every penny. Our driver Abdul picked us up from our hotel and we headed on towards the Atlas Mountains. Along the way there were plenty of picture opportunities with Abdul answering any questions and giving us some insight into the history of the Berber towns. The Berber breakfast was lovely and the Argan oil tour very informative with opportunity to purchase lovely gifts. When we got to the Atlas Mountains, Rachid Jellah took over, he was a fantastic guide. Very informative and ensured we went at a pace to accommodate everyone in the group. Lots of beautiful views along the way from the cherry blossom to the waterfall. The Berber lunch was tasty and hearty, and we had the added bonus of enjoying it with a clear view of the Atlas Mountains. The day was topped off with a camel ride, quite an experience if you’ve never done it before. Would definitely recommend this trip.

    Firstly how lucky we were to get a fantastic duo Sajid the Driver and Mohamed the English speaking guide, who was informative, extremely attentive, all day, meeting the groups needs and all done with a laugh and a joke. The day included a berber market visit (Tues only), oil making tour, small waterfalls, various food and drink stops and last but not least a camel ride. Lots of photograph opportunities and a chance to experience a slice of the real Morocco. Even a little shopping thrown in for good measure. A bit of a hike for the initial part of the walking tour, so not good for a person who hasn't got good mobility, although the guide was on hand to assist. Fantastic value for money !
