What people are saying about Imlil

What a day! The driver and our lovely guide, Youssef, met us at our pick-up point on time. The camel ride for me was a little scary due to the uneven ground, I felt a little concerned for my safety. However, everybody else seemed relaxed. The camel ride guides were lovely and helped us during our ride. We got to see the baby camels and were given more information on the care of the camels. Our drive to the village was great. Youssef explained everything in great detail and was very knowledgeable. We stopped at several different locations to take some pictures. We enjoyed a lovely meal at the village, the best tagine I've had so far. Overall, it was a great day with a great guide, Youssef, and a lovely group.

Our guide, Youseff, gave us the most wonderful insight into Morocco’s culture, landscape and character. We had the most wonderful experience; beautiful walk in the mountains, lunch with the most unbelievable view, lots of opportunities to take photographs of the amazing landscapes, and all with the incredible attentive care of Youseff. Thank you for making our Marrakech adventure so special ☺️

We thought the price was too good to be true but the tour turned out to be awesome- professional, safe, relaxed. Our guide was Youssef and he never rushed us between activities, was informative and funny. Probably one of the best day trips for the value I’ve ever done!

Marwan is the best guide out there, the attention, care and enthusiasm made the day the best. 3 amazing stops to see all the Different things Marrakech has to offer!

Abdul and Yosuf were our guides, they were really nice. They picked us up on time, and the whole day was well organized. Thank you for the experience.
