Hiking in the Atlas Mountains
A friend and I took a two-night, 3-day trek in the Toubkal region with Pathfinders Treks. Rachid organized the trek for us and we had a wonderful guide, Mohammed, who was very professional and knowledgeable. We had a great time exploring the beauty of the Atlas Mountains and we felt completely safe the entire time. I highly recommend Pathfinders Treks! Thank you for a wonderful experience!
Amazing 2 Days Mount Toubkal Hike and 3 days Mid Atlas & Sahara Desert Tour
Mohamed, our guide, was great on the 2 Day Mount Toubkal hike. As we have varying degrees of fitness levels, he had to adjust to the group. Sometimes, he had to lead from the front when the path wasn't clear especially going up, and sometimes he had to be the sweeper. He was flexible and showed a lot of care to the group. It would have been great if his command of English was better but it was enough to communicate with us. Thank you Mohamed. Also special mention to the cook, Hussain, who managed to add variety to our meals, even on the mountains. Shukran. Tanmirt.
Rachid was our guide for the rest of the trip. He hit it off with the group immediately and we had a fun time travelling with him. He was very attentive to our needs especially when he realised that we had misinterpreted our desert accomodations. He was quick to fix the issue and was generous in his solution. We had a really great time at the luxury camp. He still owe us a Berber live dance since he couldn't join us at the desert camp. :) Jokes aside, we had a great time and would recommend Atlas Pathfinders. Special mention to Ibrahim, our driver, who drove us throughout the 3 days. It was a long journey up to Fez. Thank you. Shukran. Tanmirt.
Honest, professional, organised
We have just completed an 8 day tour from Marrakech to Tanger with Pathfinders Treks. Rachid organised a wonderful tour for us with our own private driver and guide, although in certain locations he arranged a guide specific to that area.
The accommodation was really great and our night in the desert at the luxury camp was unforgettable.
Rachid was flexible and was happy to adapt his plan to suit us. We wished to climb Mt Toubkal and he arranged everything. His attention to detail was really good.
We only paid a small deposit online with the rest being paid once we met Rachid in Morocco. He never attempted at any stage to increase the price.
I would highly recommend this company and I wish him well.
Once-in-a-Lifetime 7d/6n Custom Tour
Rachid tailor-made an itinerary for me and my husband that absolutely exceeded our expectations. We spent 3 days/2 nights hiking three berber villages, including staying in local guest houses, then we continued into a more typical desert tour that included endless stunning vistas, beautiful accommodations every night, every site we requested plus some treasures we never could have imagined, and the classic camel ride and luxury camp. Beyond the experiences and sights, our guide, driver, and muleteer/cook were all absolutely phenomenal. This tour was a once in a lifetime experience, and I would highly recommend Pathfinders to anyone since I know Rachid will create a perfect trip for any interest.
Three days Mount Toubkal trek
Climbing the Toubkal with Pathfinderstreks was an amazing experience. We had our private guide namend Ibrahim who guided us through the mountains and told us a lot about the mountains and the area. There was also a private cook who made us breakfast, lunch and dinner which tasted very well. Ibrahim and Rachid were very helpfull and the contact before and after the trip was very usefull! We would definitely recommend Pathfinderstreks!

Mt toubkal trek
Had a real good trip up to the top of the atlas mountains can't thank my tour guide Ibrahim enough made it up in a fast pace to see the sunrise. Really enjoyed the trek highly recommend
We made a daytrip from Imlil into the High Atlas Mountains. Our tourguide Rachid was the best we could have wished. Not only is his English perfect, he also can tell a lot about the surroundings, trees, whatever. That, together with the perfect trek and pace for our group and the wonderfull fresh prepared lunch under a tree in the shade, made this for us a perfect experience. Rashid, many thanks!
We had two wonderful days in the Atlas Mountains. Everything was well organized. Thanks to our guide Ibrahim, who kept us motivated all the way up and down. And thanks to our chef Hassan, who served us delicious food and took care of our luggage.
Mohammed (and the trek) was amazing
We booked this trip lastminute and we couldn't be more lucky. Everything was amazing, the service, the guide (LOVE YOU MOHAMMED), the cook (LOVE YOU SAÏD, a lot and delicious, local, food), the mountains (LOVE YOU ATLAS MOUNTAINS). As you can see, we were very excited. You can notice he is in sync with the people he's guiding; he made it more challenging for us but if you have difficulties during trekking he will adjust to your tempo. In conclusion: we recommend path finders trek very much!!
3 day trek in Atlas Mountains including Toubkal summit
Fantastic! Would highly recommend! We spent 3 days trekking with our guide Lahcen who was brilliant- kind, attentive and a great guide. The food was very good- always lots and even when we stopped in the middle of nowhere they still managed to produce a delicious tagine! Accomodatiom was basic but that was expected and the views were well worth it. It was our first time using crampons but I felt very safe with Lahcen's help and we thoroughly enjoyed the trip.
We did 2 day hike in Atlas mountains. We chose this company because we wanted to spend money with Moroccan rather than British travel agent. And we were right! this We had a fantastic time with Pathfinders. They really looked after us and met all our needs. We had a wonderful weather and seen fantastic views. It was just perfect and i wouldn't change anything about this experience.

Amazing trek with the best guides!
My husband and I booked our two day trek to Mt. Toubkal with Pathfinders Treks. Rachid, the owner is very professional and caring and answered all of our questions. He set us up with a great guide, Rashid who guided us safely all the way. The food was tasty and there was more than enough to feed a full table of people.
Everything from the beginning to the end of the trek was done with care and professionalism. On the way we also met Hassan, another guide from Pathfinders Treks who has a great sense of humor and is very energetic.
I highly recommend Pathfinders Treks and will definitely book through them on our next visit to Morocco.
5-day Atlas and Sahara desert trip
My wife and I had a great experience with Pathfinders Treks! We only had a week to spend in Morocco, so we booked the 5-day combined tour and loved every minute of it. Our guide Ibrahim was a very experienced mountain guide and took great care of us during the hike up Toubkal. Ibrahim was born, raised, and lives around Imlil, so he offered tons of local knowledge that really added to the experience. We felt completely safe with our driver Assim at the wheel and covered a lot of ground in the limited time we had to visit the country. The views along the drive from the High Atlas to the edge of the Sahara were amazing, this was a great introduction to Morocco!

Atlas and Sahara Tour
We had an excellent 5 day tour of the Atlas Mountains and Sahara Dessert and would thoroughly recommend Pathfinders. Special thanks to our tour guide Hamid Bourdda who looked after us very well.
Amazing trips, amazingly experienced guides and the most amazing experiences.
Rashid and the team of guides at pathfinders treks are absolutely amazing. We spent a total of 4 days in the Atlas Mountains on two separate trips. The first trek in the red valley and Berber villages was just the most amazing experience. We enjoyed it that much that we booked the second trip to climb Toukal which was another amazing experience. I booked the trip before we came to Marrakech and Rashid communicated with me most days leading up to our trip. He gave me every bit of information I needed before the trek and couldn't have been more helpful. The guides are so experienced and know every single step on the treks they do, even in the dark on Toubkal. We were picked up by our driver from our hotel in Marrakech and drove us to meet our guides in Imlil.
Thank you to Rashid but also massively to both Mohammeds for looking after us every step of the way and working so hard to make our trip so special.
