Great activity to escape for a day from Marrakech. Abdel was an outstanding guide and driver (+ very punctual!). He knew how to make our day pleasant thanks to his kindness and his interesting anecdotes. Thanks also to Jamal, our waterfall guide! He was incredibly energetic and kind! This small climb can be done in basketball but hiking shoes highly recommended;) Abdel provided us with a bottle of water so you don't need to bring any from Marrakech. Strongly recommended !

Abdel was the best guide ever! We loved exploring the Valleys and the Berber Village with him. The food was very fresh an delicious and we learned a lot about the culture and the people. We felt safe and taken care of at any time and laughed a lot together :)

It was a very nice trip. We had very good driver/guide. Excellent mountain view during tasty Berber Tagine lunch. We had moderate hike as well. Highly recommended! Great experience! Worth to book if you have time to explore Atlas Mountains

everything perfect, the landscape, the people, the calm and kindness of Muhammed, the mountain guide, the Berber family, a delicious meal, the laughter of the children.

Thank you Marwan for a spectacular trip through stunning picturesque scenery!!! It was truly a wonderful day!!!
