Went to Morocco with the usual lack of research...but found an absolute gem here!! Spent the first day "souked" out in Marrakech, and on the morning of our second day, decided to do something different, so contacted the Berber Travel Adventures at 7.45 am and by 8.45 am they had organised a taxi to pick us up from the hotel and deliver us to Amizmiz!! Bespoke adventure as there were just the two of us that day!!
The Berber market is a world away from the souk...genuine people living uncomplicated lives. Sights and sounds and smells that were overwhelming, and just so amazing that the whole experience will long be remembered. Jamal and Nour were fabulous guides, patient and not phased by endless questions ranging from social structure and health care, to how I buy my chickens "fresh" in M&S!! (Shopping for fresh food does mean the poor old chicken may have it's last run past you in the market!! No standard size/weight or shapes here) Tea..an experience with Mohammed and not to be missed! The row of tangines cooking to order in the market, just wonderful!! We would never have seen this unless with Jamal and Nour.
The walk to the village would have been less complicated if we daft tourists had suitable foot wear , but I would not have missed it for the world , even with plastered heels!! So wear walking shoes or good trainers!!! Nour, you are my angel first aider!! (we did look conspicuously like tommy tourists!!)
Lunch..the best ever tangine..freshest food served simply and so delicious, with the lady of the house so gracious and gentle. The view from the house..spectacular. The sense of peace and contentment something, money can't buy!!
If you do travel this way, take some time out and enjoy. It is the best thing we have done in years!!
