Fantastic experience!!! You will enjoy a unique day. We did a nice trek in the snow covered Atlas Mountains to finish the day with a camel ride in the Agafay Desert. Many stops are made to appreciate the breathtaking landscapes. For lunch we ate a very good chicken tajine on a terrace with a view of the mountains. I was lucky enough to have as a guide in Ismail who does a wonderful job, he solved all the doubts we had and even gave us a hand during the trekking route. Don't forget to bring the right shoes especially if it's snowing. Truly 5 stars.

It was a really great experience, the stops along the way were very beautiful and certainly photo worthy. In addition, our guide Ismail was really great, he knew everything and helped us through the mountains. We were lucky that it had just snowed so that the mountains looked nice and white, very slippery but it was definitely worth it. Then nicely closed with a lunch with a fantastic view. I definitely want to thank Ismail for this experience and this tour is also more than worth the money. Top!

We had a great experience! We went through uncommon & different tracking path that brings a beautiful journey at Atlas Mountain. Ismail is such a great guide. We can say, he loves doing his job. He did it with passion. We can feel it ;) thank you for taking care of all of us. Ungorgettable memories we got. Thank you Ismail for making this experience much better. Definetely will recommend you & this trip to others

We had a great experience as a family, myself, my partner and our 6 year old daughter. Our guide was Ismail, I honestly cannot recommend him highly enough! Wonderful experience from start to finish, from the camel ride, to the breakfast in a local village, to the hike through the scenic mountains, topped off with a great lunch! 10/10, thank you very much!

Trip to Atlas mountains with Ismail was very nice and interesting. Villages in the mountains are simply stunning and tagine with a great view was really good.
