What people are saying about Lalla Takerkoust

Une super journée ! Un programme très complet et varié pour avoir en une journée une bonne idée de la vie Marocaine en dehors de Marrakech. Des paysages magnifiques, un très bon déjeuner et une délicieuse pause petit déjeuner ! Abdou notre chauffeur était d'une gentillesse incroyable, nous avons même fait un stop sur un marché berbère, grâce à Abdou nous avons pu faire de bons achats. Ibrahim a été aux petits soins pour nous pendant la randonnée. Notre fils Victor de 5 ans a eu la chance d'être porté à certains moments et Ibrahim a terminé par un tour de magie ! Nous recommandons à 200% cette excursion. Famille Gryson

Best tour. The tour guide Said is a young man who is most devoted to his trade. The consummate host, he looked after us with his personal brand of hospitality which included serving us our food, being our hiking guide in addition to being our personal holiday planner. This tour took us to the most picturesque waterfall and for those who hiked all the way, we we’re rewarded with the most delicious freshly squeezed blood orange juice right at the source! This moderately priced tour included a most deliciously targine lunch served in a spectacular restaurant with jaw dropping views. Highly recommended. Thank you Said.

Said was a great tour guide! Easy to arrange pick up via van in and around the Medina. The tour van was comfortable and Said had all of the guests laughing and interacting with each other along the way. We toured a Berber village where Said is from and the food was delicious. This tour is a great opportunity to get out of the city of Marrakech and explore the surrounding countryside!

The entire experience was absolutely amazing from start to finish. SAÏD is a very knowledgeable guy and really friendly, hope to see him soon. If you book somewhere else you will really regret it, trust me. Berber breakfast and lunch provided along with water and mint tea. Everything was incredible.

Great trip to the mountains to get out of Marrakech and see another side of Morocco. Saïd was a knowledgeable guide and was very helpful making it comfortable for all.
