I was interested in buying Moroccan oil, aka Argan. I was in all the shops and markets in Agadir and around. The prices were different and I was afraid to buy low quality. I found this product and I was right. They have a very big shop with tons of products. What I liked so much is that they show the prices. Every product has its price on it. When I checked on the internet, the products were 10 times cheaper than what we have in Europe. This experience was amazing , and all the products were original. highly recommend.

Wonderful! Brought to the camp in the morning where you’re greeted with fires and coffee/pastries. The balloons get blown up just as the sun starts to rise after which you get into the balloons and go up. A note that the ride itself was about 40-45 minutes as it’s dependent on the usage of the gas during the trip. Nevertheless, incredible views and watching the sun come up is idyllic. Back to camp for tea and Berbar breakfast, which was delicious.

I recommend this activity. Racid, our guide, was really good; he explains a lot of things, and he was very kind, professional and helpful. The description of the activity corresponds to reality. We enjoyed a lot.

The pick-up was on time , very nice tour guide, the scenery was beautiful, the water was there and I swam for about an hour. This tour was the best thing I have booked from Agadir, Morocco.

Lovely guide, amazing trip. Don’t expect too much but it's a lovely experience. I would totally recommend this.
