What people are saying about Atlas Mountains

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!

Trip au top! J’ai vu des choses incroyables en si peu de temps. Saïd est un excellent chauffeur et très sympathique. Il a su tout au long du voyage me faire découvrir la culture marocaine avec moults anecdotes. Merci aussi à Ali à Thinghir et Mohammed à Merzouga. J’ai passé un excellent moment, bien au delà de ce que j’en attendais!

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.
