Full description

The adventure begins with pickup from your hotel in Marrakech or the closest accessible point to your accommodation. Head south towards the vast Agafay Desert, admiring the changing landscape along the way as the city gives way to luscious greenery.

Arrive at the large village of Imlil located at the foot of the High Atlas Mountains, then pass through the incredible Kik Plateau.

Next, embark on a 30-minute camel ride and soak up views of the surrounding landscapes. After your ride, enjoy a relaxing tea break and learn about local Berber culture, as well as their traditions, history, and way of life.

Pass through several Berber villages on your way to the Amizmiz Valley, then arrive at Tinirt Village where you can have lunch at a traditional Berber house.

After lunch, continue the tour to the Great Plain of Haouz, passing through the village of Ouled Mataa which was originally inhabited by Bedouin Arab tribes from the desert.

The day ends with a tour of the Agafay Desert, where you can take incredible photos for your holiday album, and marvel at the rugged Moroccan landscape that surrounds you. After an unforgettable day, sit back and relax on the return journey to Marrakesh, arriving back at your accommodation.

    The tour was absolutely top notch. It really defies description. As one who had scarcely heard of the Atlas Mountains prior to this, I was in awe at the scenery. The meal we were served was fresh and delicious. The hiking was slightly arduous, our awesome guide Youssef was beyond kind in staying to the rear with my wife and me (the “old folks “ in the group) so that we did not feel rushed or left out. He literally held my wife’s hand through the treacherous parts. The camel riding was cool, a bucket list item for my wife, and certainly a unique experience. I would strongly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Marrakesh, and I say again, Youssef is a tour guide par excellence , he was the brightest spot in an overall brilliant experience 👍👍

    We had a great day with our guide Mustapha, fluent English well organized tour. He is a fantastic photographer as well and happy to answer any questions about the way of living of the Berber people. The driver Hamouda picked us up in time and drove the van without any trouble through the busy streets out of Marrakech. Great tajin chicken lunch too.

    Had a really lovely day with Redouane and Ali! We got to do so much stuff, the value for money was incredible :) We went up into the mountains, had tea and some amazing food with unbelievable views and rode camels just to name a few of the exciting things we did! Me and my partner can’t express in words how fantastic our guides were, the whole trip was so well planned and our every need was attended to. We would 100% love to do it all again and would strongly recommend it to anyone thinking about booking this experience! Thank you again Redouane and Ali, From Isaac and Ellie!
