We were picked up from our hotel at the agreed time 7am by a polite driver named Medi and then transferred over to comfortable air conditioned minibus with free and very fast reliable WI-Fi and left promptly. Once we were on the move our tour guide Medi introduced himself and explained the itinerary for the day. We arrived in first stop at altitude of 1400 meters where we had refreshment coffee (we paid for it few dirahms and started in 20 minutes later our tour via Atlas mountains and were able to enjoy stunning paronamic views thanks to Medi. During this trip we were taken to Tichka at altitude of around 2400 meters where the mountains view will take your brief away. After several minutes was then time to move into the car to move further for lots of fantastic places Medi was kind to take us trough the twisting turning roads of the Atlas mountains and what an experience it was, not to be missed! WOW factor for sure and highly recommend to everyone!
The trip was lovely and our driver and guide very accommodating to stop for photos all along the way. However, the information the guide provided was very basic and repeated. At Ait Benhaddou, he didn't give much context or history even when asked. He was very friendly and helpful. He even arranged for us to go on the roof of one of the older buildings. I would have appreciated a quick stop as we left at the overlook, but I didn't realize what it was until we passed it to ask for it. The lunch was good, but the view was not overlooking Ait Benhaddou as described. The van was comfortable.
A great experience seeing Morocco outside of the city. Aït Benhaddou was definitely worth the (longer than expected) journey. Fabulous views across the Atlas Mountains and the historic Berber villages. Our guide, Mohammed, was knowledgable and helpful and our driver, Yousef, expertly navigated the twisting mountain roads! Definitely glad we made the trip.
Our driver Hussein picked us up as arranged at the agreed time. We were the only two people on the bus. We had a fantastic day. Hussein was an excellent driver and he went out of his way to make our day interesting and enjoyable. We enjoyed his company, took some great photographs. Excellent all round, thank you.
We had such a great time!! There were breathtaking views and the driver, Abdul, was outstanding! He was totally willing to make stops, cater the day to us, and take pictures. Highly recommend this tour if you don't mind being in a car for 10+ hours on bumpy roads in one day.
