    Fantastic experience! Perfect one day trip outside of Marrakech, getting to see an Argan Oil Cooperative (Not mentioned in the description—so glad we got to do it!), the Atlas Mountains, a waterfall, the desert…the camel ride was a little bit of a letdown (they took you in a circle around the ranch area, with all the camels tied together, and a guide leading it, but the guide didn’t talk at all or give interesting data about the camels; we just walked, very slowly, in silence in a big circle) but still cool to see the camels and ride. Abdul was a fantastic driver/guide for the day. Fun, funny, knowledgeable, and kind. Ibrahim was also a good guide for the hiking portion. The vehicle was also nice and comfortable. Bottled water was said to be included, but was only received at lunch; it would have been nice to have in the car and/or for the hike. We would totally choose this tour again!!

    Overall it was nice but there was few things that could be improved. First of all during our first stop to see a village, the guide got a little too deep in the history of the village and Islam in general which was interesting only for first few minutes. The Argan oil house was a nice experience with breakfast and tea served for us there. One thing that was the most disappointing was the camel ride as the spot was just on the side of a road with all the camels tied together so that when we were riding them, camels head was tied to the other camels bum in front of him. It just felt quite uncomfortable and definitely not what we thought it would be.

This trip was an amazing way to experience the beauty just outside of Marrakech. Our day started with our driver, Hassan, picking us up in Marrakech and taking us to the mountains. He was very engaging and told us the history and pointed out some amazing points of interest along the way. Once we got to the mountain town of Imlil, his friend Ibrahim took us on a hike through the villages in the valley. He even treated us to tea in his family home, with a view that dreams are made of. At the end of our hike, we were provided lunch at another beautiful location overlooking the villages in the valley and the mounts surrounding them. After Ibrahim dropped us off with Hassan, Hassan took us to Agafay Desert to take in the views and ride camels. All in all, this is a can’t miss experience. Special thanks again to Hassan and Ibrahim for making our journey a memorable experience.

We had an awesome day!! Our driver Hassan was incredibly friendly and gave us some great information as well as served as an awesome DJ throughout the day! The hike in Imlil was fantastic, great views and a very attentive guide, Ibrahim, who always made sure everyone was fine and gave us enough time to catch our breaks. Lunch in a local restaurant was accompanied by an amazing view of the Atlas mountain and the dromedary ride in traditional Berber clothes did not disappoint! Absolutely would recommend! 10/10 price-performance ratio
