    Abdul and Ibrahim were our driver and our mountain guide. They were very friendly and there was little issue with communication. Abdul was on time and the car was new and comfy. He stopped and allowed us to take photos. Ibrahim was very insightful around the mountains and answered all our questions. The lunch provided was fantastic and authentic. All in all a great experience

    A really enjoyable tour for those wanting to experience some life outside of Marrakech. Considering it was just a day, I feel like I saw a lot with the towns around the Atlas Mountains and the Agafay desert. Hassan and Rachid Jellah were both extremely friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable and I couldn't really have asked for more. Would recommend.

    We had a truly fantastic day in the surroundings of Marrakech with Ibrahim and his team. They provided us with a beautiful experience, great food and and first-hand insights into their fascinating Berber culture. It was well organized and felt very authentic. Moreover, Ibrahim is a very nice and patient tour guide with excellent English skills and a lot of valuable knowledge. I can highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to explore the mountains and desert in a relaxed manner, in only one day!
