    We had an amazing time, we would recommend this hike to everybody. Our guide was Mehamed Bewajamour and we also had an amazing cook. We were only with the two of us, no other participants and they took really good care of us. Our guide was really nice, helpfull, patient and could tell us everything about the area. We are not the most experienced hikers and some parts were a bit more challenging, but he did everything to make our trip as comfortable as possible. It really is an unique experience and we got to see a world we have never seen before. We didn’t meet any other tourists on the road, only locals and for us that was the true Moroccan experience. And the food was really delicious as well.

    Nice activity in the Atlas Mountains. The hike lasted on both days around 4-5 hours, bit demanding but manageable. The guide was okay. The night in the Berber village was good organized, it was really really cold but that was expected in January without heating. Don’t forget it’s getting cold also in Marokko in the night (in winter).

    Amazing walking experience! We were a very small group and Mohamed B. adapts to your level. He puts a lot of good mood and attention to make sure you have a good time, and everything you need during the trek and the night in village. Very beautiful landscapes!! And way more than expected in terms of meals and snacks. I can only recommend these 2 days in the Atlas Mountains and would definitely come back one summer. Remember to take good (mountain) shoes and very warm clothes for the evening.
