Very good support, we especially thank our guide Hassan he was perfect from start to finish. 3h walk through 5 Berber villages and finally Hassan took us to eat the best tajine in the world and it's true we have not found better elsewhere! With a breathtaking view of the mountains away from tourist groups. We were alone with him and it is without regret! If you have the opportunity to ask for a guide take Hassan! thank you for everything

All excellent. The guide Hassan was very nice and welcoming, adapting the day to the needs of the participants in real time. We wanted to walk more and he accommodated us. Everything organized very well, from the pick up, to the arrival, to the reception. The guide lives in one of the villages crossed and even invited us to his house for a Moroccan tea prepared by his wife, he knows all the locals who gave us fruit along the way. The best activity done during the trip to Marrakech, without "tourist traps" with shopping demonstrations. Very good final lunch, in a riad in the village with a spectacular window and a view that embraces the whole landscape. A very authentic experience in direct contact with the locals, discovering the culture and traditions of a wonderful place. I will definitely come back to try a multi-day trek with them.

Our guide was very friendly, he made us discover his beautiful region and his native village within the valley. We had a nice walk of around 3 hours, where we were able to visit all the small Berber villages in the valley. Thereafter we had lunch a good tajine at the family Riad, and we joined our driver to return to Marrakech. The driver was great, he told us a few little anecdotes about the trip. We recommend the excursion for an authentic escape from the bustle of Marrakech.
