      The tour was very interesting and informative. Our guide Said was able to tell us a lot about the Berber people. The people we met were extremely friendly and at the event of the argan oil cooperative we felt no pressure to necessarily have to buy something. Only the hike could have been a bit more extensive. Overall, however, it was a beautiful and varied day.

      Really nice experience to escape the bustling city

      After a few days in Marrakesh we have been looking forward to this day trip to escape the bustling city life - and we definitely had a great nature experience. Our tour was guided by Ibrahim, who was very patient with our large group and gave us a lot of background information about life in the Atlas Mountains, the Berbers and the importance of mint tea. A short hike to a waterfall was a welcome change after the long drive and the tasty lunch.

      The tour was very nice! We did not except such a good service for that really cheap price. Both guides Hassan the driver and Ibrahim the walking guide with the red hat were excellent :) the lunch was amazing and way enough for all of us with a nice view! Walking boots are highly recommended and we can definitely tell you to book the tour! Thank you very much for a fantastic day in the Atlas mountain!
