An unforgettable experience. First of all, our driver Hassan was very friendly, polite, and a gentleman. There are lots of trips to the Atlas Mountains available, but a great driver and guide makes a lot of difference. Our first stop was at an Argan Oil cooperative. We were also served refreshments and tea here, which was very lovely. There was no pressure to buy anything at all, during the time we were there. Tip: if you're planning to buy organic, natural argan oil - buy it from here. The feel of their argan oil on your skin is incomparable to those you find in the Medina. We then began our ascent to the Atlas Mountains. We stopped at a beautiful Mosque which was built in the early 13th century. This was my favourite part, as the Mosque was placed with a backdrop of the beautiful mountains. It was also very tranquil and calm. Afterwards, we were invited to a local Berber family's home for lunch. The lunch was delicious, and their hospitality was heartwarming.
The scenery was breathtaking with the high Atlas Mountains streaked with snow. The walk to the waterfall was exhilarating but well worth it. I have found the Moroccan people so friendly and Abdulla our excellent guide was no exception. He was very thoughtful, helpful and exceptionally knowledgeable about Morocco and everything of interest. The lunch at a local berbers home was delicious and a wonderful experience. All in all despite it being a long day travelling many miles, I would highly recommend this trip.
This half day experience is very fulfilling and is an awesome trip. We were concerned that we wouldn't get much out of a half day but it was a perfect time to see an authentic Moroccan village. The guide was very knowledgable and each stop was spent taking pictures and learning more about the Berber culture. Overall a great day out and well worth the money. The hike is not for the light hearted and could be difficult for the less abled or elderly. But well worth it if you can manage the climb.
We had a truly amazing trip. Abdul our driver was really nice, super knowledgeable about the culture, the environment and made our experience perfect. All other people involved like our guide to the waterfalls and the stunning lunch at the house of the Lehcen family made it the best possible tour for us and I can only recommend it to everybody booking the trip with Morroco Inspiring Tours to have an escape from the busy Marrakesh!
Five star experience, simply amazing from start to finish. Abdul is an amazing, fun loving guide. The day out has been thoughtfully put together from the beautiful waterfall to five (plus) stunning valleys. The highlight of the day is the delicious lunch with the welcoming Berber family and the closing visit to the local market brings out the essence of true Moroccan experience. Our thanks to Abdul.
