Experience that will surely remain in the heart. Picked up at the meeting point because the Riad was inaccessible with the car, the driver was very helpful and kind. Immediately the camel ride, nice, continuing the tour we went to the argan cooperative, which I would cut it off from the day, since it was quick and too touristy. Their only thought was to grab sales. Once we arrived in Imil, a very special day began. The wonderful, kind and extremely humble MOHAMED guide. After the falls and a walk through the Berber villages he took us to lunch at his house, together with his family and his two splendid children. They are a very humble family, but full of dignity. They had little to offer materially but humanly we returned with a wealth of warmth and values. Bravo Mohamed! We love you

Simo brought us closer to the country. We hiked 10km with him (not too bad, 350 meters in altitude and not steep). The area is touristy but (at the beginning of February) not full. The food was good and the waiting time was interesting because we could listen to the village. Well suited for people who want to explore the country individually.

Nous avons passés une journée exceptionnelle. Notre guide y ai pour beaucoup. Said s'est montré très intéressant, disponible, drôle et sympathique. Nous avons découvert Marrakech différemment.
