Once you arrive in Imlil, enjoy a welcome glass of mint tea and meet your guide before commencing your tour of the local area. Your guide will help you decide on the length of your tour (you can choose between 1 and 3 hours). Make your way to the largest and highest village in Imlil Valley. Your journey will take you past waterfalls and the hamlets of Ait Mizan, Targa, and Imoula.

Once you are rested you will begin your return trip down the other side of the valley to Taourirt to board your vehicle. Go through the Moulay Brahim Gorges, before arriving at the main trailhead with streams and paths branching out in all directions. Here, enjoy a camel ride through picturesque landscapes. Finally, make your journey back to Marrakech, with drop-off in the early evening.

It was not only value for money but one of the best way to enjoy our visit to Marrakech. Our guide Saeed was brilliant in every aspect of his professionalism, entertaining and engaging us all. Preparing us in Camel riding in traditional attire and taking us in traditional voyage was brilliant and not only that where ever he took us the hosts welcomed us whole heartily. This is due to Saeed’s good relation with them, I believe so. Over all it was memorable tour of the Marrakesh visit.

This tour was a full day of fun! Our guide, Rachid Mazik, taught the group so much about life for the indigenous people of the high Atlas Mountains and answered all our questions. Rachid was amazing! The day was nice and active, topped off with a fantastic lunch with a gorgeous view. This tour is a fantastic value and a wonderful way to spend a day “in” Marrakech! Our driver, Waha, picked us up and dropped us off near our riad.

This day trip was amazing. The group we had were really bubbly and nice and we all get along with each other. But shoutout to the tour guide Hassan - this brother was amazing and really nice and even took us to his hometown so that we could have some Morocco Tea. Finally another shoutout to the Driver who took us everywhere.

Absolutely brilliant and our guide was so lovely! It was very informative, fun and the guide helped us have the full experience!

We did this day trip with the Abdul driver and Abdul tour guide. Everything was perfect! Full recommended!
