Rachid was a great host, friendly, funny and his English is really good. If you can, book it on a Saturday, then you will see the berber market (you don’t want to miss out on this). Overall great experience!

This tour was definitely the highlight of our trip! Everything and more. Pick up was timely and Mohammed checked in to be sure we knew exactly where to go. He explained where we would stop along the journey, took care of the entire group to ensure everyone was safe and having a good time and answered all questions we had. We went to his Berber Village home which was very welcoming and at the top of the Atlas Mountain. The views were incredible! We tipped him well because he definitely deserved it.

The tour was a wonderful and comprehensive way to understand the Berber community and culture. We saw traditional homes with a delicious meal and had a vigorous hike nearthe Atlas Mountains. The camel ride was pretty commercial but I can cross it off my bucket list. Mohammed was very knowledgeable and professional. Our group was terrific. Be prepared for a very long and full day.

The day trip to the Atlas mountains with Rachid was an amazing experience! Everything went smoothly and our group of 5 had a blast! Even though Rachid does this tour often, he remains enthusiastic and always with a smile on his face. His English is superb and he explains everything beforehand. He’s a bit of jokester and constantly made our group laugh! We managed to see quite a bit during our tour and it was all authentic with no pressure for anything. Depending on your fitness level - there is definitely some inclined sections of walking/hiking/going up steps but it’s all in relatively short bursts! I definitely recommend comfy walking or hiking shoes! Throughout the tour we had plenty of stops for photos and had so much yummy tea and snacks in addition to our lunch. I know there’s many options out there but I highly recommend booking this tour- you’ll have some unique memories :) Rachid is super friendly, genuine and he’ll make sure you have a great experience! It was the highlight of my trip to Morocco!

Was meet in the square after maybe having too many the night before! Mohammed helped and made sure my girlfriend was well travelling and helped as much as he could. As the trip goes he was very informative, friendly and welcomed us into his culture. He was cheeky, funny and had more than one answer to any question we asked! By far the best tour I have ever been on! Welcomed us into his home and gave us an meal that my picky girlfriend even ate every bit! Couldn't recommend enough!
