What people are saying about Atlas Mountains

What value for money!!! Thank you so much for this experience!!It was definitely the best part of our week in Morocco. Our personal driver Muhammad was great, he picked us up outside our guest house and brought us to where they make Argan oil. Throughout the journey he stopped in beautiful locations so that we could take some photos. We then met our guide Abdul, a local of the Imlil area, who brought us on a beautiful hike. It was absolutely breathtaking. We are so grateful for our time with Abdul, he was so friendly and knowledgeable about the land. We couldn't ask for a better guide!! Thanks for all the laughs too! A very very tasty lunch was served in a beautiful location with the surrounding mountains as its backdrop. It was such a pleasure to walk through the villages and see/meet the locals. After lunch and tea we then drove out to Agafay desert where we were given colourful garments to wear during the relaxed camel ride. Completely unforgettable! Thank you Abdul and Muhammad!

We had a really enjoyable day. Our driver, Moustapha, told us a bit about the acenwry and the town we were passing on our way to Ouzoud. Our guide to the waterfall, Yousef, was excellent too! He knew and shared so much about the Berber culture, language and his experience growing up in the town, nearby. Also, he spoke 7 languages fluently, including German! When you see peanuts being sold at the beginning of the hike for 10dh, buy it! This is to feed the monkeys on the other side of the falls. Also, be sure to have some coins or small bills to tip the boat guy rowing you to the falls, and if you forgot to get the peanuts, you can tip the guy with a bag of peanuts to feed the monkeys. It was a relaxing and beautiful day and I highly recommend this tour!

Abdou was our main guide and driver. Youssef our local guide and temporary "guru". Both were nothing short of amazing and I totally recommend them.
