What people are saying about Imlil Valley

A great day with Abdul the guide and Abdul the driver. A variety of experiences from the Agafay desert and camel ride to traditional breakfast and tea, to beatutiful views of the valleys and aatlas mountains and a fabtastic hike (but careful - the track is rocky). A great experience and a memorable day.

Our guide Ghafour was fantastic and we had the most amazing day. He was very knowledgable and kind (and was also kind and talented enough to sing in Arabic for us). So many unforgettable experiences in one day, would recommend to anyone visiting Marrakesh.

It was a very nice day! Ghafour was a super nice guide and very happy to help with taking pictures. Very nice to see a beautiful part of Morocco outside Marrakesh. this trip is highly recommended.

The tour visited several interesting and different places and we could always ask Ghafour, our tourguide, anything about Marokko.

Nice and easy tour to get a glimpse of the Atlas mountains and the dessert. Tour guide was very helpful too. (Rachid Mazik)
