STUNNING!! What a fantastic day out and a must for all who visit Marrakech. Our driver Hassan was prompt at our agreed meeting point and we instantly felt at ease with him. He explained the day itinerary and set about taking us into the Atlas Mountains and Imlil. A number of stops along the way to take in the scenery (and photos) we arrived in Imlil and met out guide Ibrahim. After a short trek into the hills we were able to appreciate the scenery and also the community of the villages and their reliance on the streaming water that comes from the mountain range including Toubkal. Ibrahim was considerate to our needs and even invited us into his family home for a drink (tea). A trek to the waterfall and descent into the main village was excellent and was enhanced by Ibrahim's local knowledge. A fantastic lunch was provided and for us was the best meal in Morocco especially with the stunning scenery. The trip back included a camel ride. Thank you Hassan & Ibrahim - highly recommended. 5*

This was a wonderful and personal small group excursion to the villages of the Atlas Mountains in the morning followed by a drive through the Agafay Desert back to Marrakech in the evening. The food (including a delicious three course Moroccan lunch in one of the villages) throughout the day was amazing. Our two guides over the day, Abdul and Ibrahim were so lovely and looked after us so well. A fantastic experience.

We had a great day, we were picked up by Abdul our driver who spoke great English and provided lots of info on the trip and asked us what we would like to do on the trip so we could tailer it to our needs. Ibrahim our guide was brilliant, it was just our group of three on our hike so felt very personalised. Ibrahim was very relaxed and forthcoming with information, but also let us enjoy the beautiful scenery. One of our group did not want to ride the camel, but this wasn’t an issue and Abdul arranged some tea and we annoyed the view, everything was tailored to our needs. I would highly recommend this trip as the mountains are beautiful and I think seeing them on foot is more rewarding than a jeep alone.
