I really enjoyed my guide and the other people in my group. I also enjoyed visiting the women's collaborative. And the view of the mountains was stunning. However, the places where we hiked and the lunch we had was nothing out of the ordinary. I would likely have picked another day-long experience over the course of a six day trip if I had it to do over again, but over a longer trip I would set aside time for it.

We got picked up at our Rihad. The driver was very friendly and on time. We drove to the mountains where we met our guide, who was very sympathetic and spoke very good English. He explained a lot and was very competent. The camel ride was beautiful and the walk as well. The lunch was one of the highlights, because the view was absolutely stunning and the food delicious. After lunch we visited the local berger Market and we met the friends of our guide. My mum and me felt very welcome and it was a great experience. We would always book this tour again.

I rarely write a review but the wonderful day trip we experienced deserves to be shared. We highly recommend booking this day trip with Rachid. You will experience exactly what the description promises. Mustafa, was safe and friendly driver. Rachid, was the perfect guide throughout the day. The lunch is superb, the most beautiful fresh salad followed by a Fantastic Tagine and fresh fruit, on a roof terrace drenched in sunshine amongst the peaks of the mountains. The trip is great value for money and we had a great day, a combination of excellent people and the wonderful Morocco. Thank you Rachid for such a organised and perfect day trip.
