What people are saying about Imlil

My 2 day trek with Abdul through the Atlas mountains was the highlight of my trip. I felt welcomed and at ease walking through the beautiful landscape, swapping cultures, and sharing childhood stories in a private, 1 on 1 setting. I hope to return one day to complete the 3 day hike to the peak of Mt. Toubkal with my guide. Thank you, Abdul!

Booked at very last minute but all went through safely and efficiently.Received very quickly a voucher and proof of payment. Track & organization excellent. Guest house overnight could be improved. Very nice & professional Guide adapting the speed. Cook/food very nice. Overall would definitely recommend it!

We spent 2 great days with our guide and cook trekking through the Atlas. Abdul and Jamal were great compagnions and made sure this whole trip was a unique experience. Everything went really well! Hikes are a bit shorter than indicated if you're fit.

Abdul and Machmoud are the best guides one could ask for. They can tell you a lot about the country and show you great corners of the Atlas Mountains. It was just fun and I would do another tour with them at any time.

It was an excellent experience, Mustafa was such a nice guide.
