Had an amazing day, starting the morning with a camel ride experience, exploring the waterfalls in afternoon followed by an authentic lunch in a local village. The tour guide Mustafa was amazing and very knowledgeable, and very kind! Expect to be drinking cups of a tea everywhere you go!

Nice guide; yummy breakfast, lunch and tea time; beautiful tour to the Atlas mountains, "hike" was not very long and with a lot of breaks, so don't expect a sporty activity, beautiful views and foto stops, camel ride was nice
