This tour fully met our expectations! Our driver picked us up on time with a modern minivan. On our way, we had the opportunity to stop and take photos at any time! In Imlil, our guide Sabir was already waiting for us. Together we went to a Berber house, where a woman was waiting to cook with us a tajine with lot of fresh vegetables and chicken. We also got Moroccan mint tea and Sabir told us interesting facts about Morocco and the Berber life. Sabir’s English was really good and he did a great job the whole time! While the tajine was cooking for an hour and a half, we went on a hike where we could enjoy the countryside away from tourists. Back at the house, we ate our tajine, lentils and freshly baked bread. It was delicious! After lunch we hiked to a small waterfall before heading back to the place where our driver was already waiting for us. On the way back we were lucky that our driver chose a different route so that we could also see the stone desert and other mountain villages!
Our tour guide from H&L looked after us really well from start to finish. He was on time friendly & really informative. We had a lovely morning running in to early afternoon & even threw in an extra detour via the Palmerie to show us some baby camels &whistle stop fir done refreshing mint tea. He is a Berber and suggested some other interesting overnight excursions left us his card for when we return again. Would definitely use him and his company again &would not hesitate to recommend him &this tour. The only thing I would suggest is less time at Menard 30 minutes as there is only really a lake there, but really peaceful, and the extra 40 minutes at La Majorelle gardens as we would have liked a little longer there. The gardens at La Majorelle were amazing.
Great experience! Driver and guide were very knowledgeable, great way to learn about the Berber way of living and people. The good was incredible! Plus they make sure you’re well fed the entire time. No need to eat breakfast before. I didn’t take the right shoes, it’s a beautiful and simple hike but I wish I brought athletic shoes! Many people also didn’t have them, so make sure you keep that in mind. I would 110% recommend. Real bang for your buck! Incredible
very enjoyable. I would never have gone to the places that my guide took me to if I had been alone. I leaned a great deal about marrakech in one afternoon. thank you, Abdul
