Abdel arrived on time to pick us up close to our Riad. He was absolutely fantastic all along. It was a small group and we asked so many Questions to witch he gave great answers. All the experience was incredibly educational, we've learnt so much about the Berber population and Morocco in general. He covered all subjects from education, to healthcare, employment, local culture, religion amd current situation. At the end of the day we all felt that we knew so much more than when we started. The hike was really nice and we were very lucky with the weather. The lunch at the Berber house on the terrace was delightful. I highly recommend it

Had an amazing day, starting the morning with a camel ride experience, exploring the waterfalls in afternoon followed by an authentic lunch in a local village. The tour guide Mustafa was amazing and very knowledgeable, and very kind! Expect to be drinking cups of a tea everywhere you go!
