I thoroughly enjoyed spending two days with Nassim and his family in The Atlas Mountains. Nassim is a local and knows the mountains like the back of his hand. He was extremely patient and, as a female solo traveller, I felt very safe and secure in his company.
Also- his cousins knocks up a fantastic hearty tagine.
A marvellous family adventure into the Sahara and Atlas Mountains. Our great guide, Omar, highlighted so many unexpected delights of this amazing country and the organisers could not have been more friendly or helpful. Highly recommend it all.
We have just had a fantastic holiday. Mustapha helped create the perfect break. We went on the 3day, 2 night atlas and sahara tour but we stayed an extra night in the mountains for mountain biking at the end. Mustapha was very professional, emailed back very promptly and was a lovely person to meet, he made us feel welcome and at home. We were a little nervous going out as the majority of money needed to be paid in cash to our driver on the first day, however we need not have worried, our driver Rashid was fantastic and very professional. There are some long drives on the trip to get to the desert but we felt it was worth it. There are many local stops along the way to explore film sites and eat local cuisine. Sadly our camp in the desert was cancelled as there was a storm... Hail in the desert, however Rashid booked us straight into a hotel and we went on the camels the next day still. The atlas mountains at the end was my favourite part. The riad is beautiful, the food great and they even have a pool. We had a guided walk with Ibrahim... He was great, a really lovely man. He took us on the best mountain biking we have been on the next day and they supported us with a 4x4 incase we had any problems. I can honestly say we had a brilliant time and it made our trip, I would highly recommend atlas and sahara tours.
We had the most amazing day with Mohamed, the tour guide. The driver (I forget his name) picked us up from our hotel in Marrakech right on time and was very easy to talk to. He also talked about some history on the road, which was cool.
Mohamed our guide was very kind and led the hike on our pace and made sure to give us lots of breaks when needed. (It was just me and my mom). He brought us to the most beautiful spot for lunch! Beautiful views. I would absolutely recommend this tour. We really had the best time. Thanks so much!
We spent a day with Atlas Tours and did the camel ride and walking in the Atlas Mountains. Our guides were really lovely, lunch was fantastic, the views were stunning and it was our favourite day of our holiday. We would recommend this completely. We enjoyed every single minute!
We had an amazing day with Atlas & Sahara tours. We did the day long camel ride and walk in the Atlas Mountains and it was absolutely beautiful. The food was lovely, the guides were friendly and helpful and it was the best day of our holiday. Thank you so much!
Excellent 2 day/1 night trekking tour with Atlas and Sahara Tours!
My partner and I booked a customised tour with Atlas and Sahara Tours which included 2 day treks around the Imlil and Azzaden Valleys, and an overnight stay in Riad Jnane Imlil, with return transfer to Marrakech.
We had a fantastic experience from beginning to end! Before arriving, we liaised with Mustapha from the tour agency (also the owner of Riad Jnane Imlil) and were very happy with his helpful and quick replies to all our emails. Mustapha and his team of staff at the Riad were incredibly hospitable. The Riad itself is beautiful, no doubt one of the best places to stay in Imlil Valley!
We were very fortunate to have an excellent guide, Mohammed, who led us on our 2 day treks. I cannot recommend Mohammed highly enough. He is very well experienced with the mountains, taking us up to some beautiful mountains passes, secret valley routes and the soaring 40m high Tamsoule waterfall. He took great care to ensure we were comfortable with the challenging terrain, told us much about his own Berber culture and the landscape and also was a wonderful photographer.
Each day we were treated to a delicious and warm lunch cooked fresh on the mountains, and ate like kings against the backdrop of stunning mountain scenery.
Overall we loved our experience with Atlas and Sahara Tours. We selected them because of their fantastic online reviews and we were not disappointed. We hope one day to return to the High Atlas Mountains and book with them again.
I would really recommend this tour and Atlas and Sahara tours. The communication prior to the day and booking was really professional and prompt. On the day the driver was waiting for us at the agreed time in a new and quality vehicle. He drove very safely and despite some of the tricky roads we felt safe. Our welcome at Immil was very warm, and my husband and I had mint tea and a large selection of biscuits sitting on a terrace with a wonderful view. Our guide for the walk before lunch was fantastic. The views were spectacular. The guide was a gentleman and went at the right pace for us, and helped me on any uneven parts. Going through Berber villages was a privilege, and I brought some small gifts of colouring pencils and stickers for the children to show our appreciation. Returning for lunch after the walk was very relaxing, and my husband and I enjoyed a delicious and plentiful meal, with the same great views. We were never rushed and felt very looked after by all of the team at Atlas and Sahara tours. I would really recommend.
Great company! They really try hard to help, to take you to the best places and make you feel welcome - and thank you to our amazing guides Omar and Mohammed! We had a great time and would recommend this tour group to everyone 10/10 :-)
