Top attractions in Asni
What people are saying about Asni
In the beginning there was a little misunderstanding about the pick-up point (it never turned who misunderstood whom after all, but this can be easily improved, as the participants need to submit their phone numbers when registering to the tour, so somebody should store these numbers and call the participant real-time, if there is a misunderstanding) but our guide, Mustapha handled very well the atmosphere, he made sure that all participants felt comortable when we hit the road. The camel ride was super exciting and entertaining with authentic clothing and all, the stop at the argan cooperative was OK, but the product demonstration was a bit long for me, the tour in the mountains was like a travel to a hidden, mystic part of the world. Mustapha was very enthusiastic, as he was from that Berber region, so the info he shared was clearly coming from the heart. The waterfall is beautiful. The Berber Tajine by the local house was the best Tajine we had in our whole Moroccan trip.
“Mustapha arranged our pick up from our Riad before we headed out the city for a 30-minute camel ride. Here he explained the value of the camels with impeccable English, as we enjoyed mint tea & biscuits post-ride. We then went south to learn about Argan oil & got to try the different products, both edible & cosmetic. Next, we were taken into the mountains to commence a walk through the Berber village, where Mustapha excelled with his local knowledge of the communities and religions. Following our walk, we enjoyed a delicious three-course lunch at the guest house, before returning to Marrakech. Mustapha was incredibly inclusive of the whole group and personalized the trip to accommodate our needs. “
Slightly more touristic than I first expected. A lot of stops at places to buy various things aimed at tourists which are clearly marked up in price from real worth. However that being said this was by far my most enjoyable day in Marrakech. The outbound journey was broken down nicely into multiple stops each offering their own unique experiences. The actual walk within the mountains was breathtakingly stunning, an absolutely beautiful landscape. The tour guides are all extremely friendly and very informative. Highly recommend this as a way to spend one of your days travelling in Marrakech.
The trip started with breakfast and the usual tea, then we moved on to the horse riding part. It lasted for about an hour and it was fun - the horses were walking or running on low speeds, it can get a bit scary but it is safe. Then we had an awesome lunch at Imlil, and then a hike to a gorgeous waterfall. The organises were explaining a lot and telling us stories about the villages, the food, buildings, every day life, religion etc. Overall we were incredibly satisfied, totally recommended!
This was a lovely tour where we really got to learn and see some great morrocan sites! Our tour guide Said was exceptional- he was really friendly, funny and enthusiastic and really took the time to know everyone individually. Seeing the women who made argan oil was enlightening and the homemade tagine for lunch may have been the best meal of my holiday! Definitely a tour not to be missed! Only thing to note is there is a lot of hiking so comfy shoes are a must! Would highly recommend.
