Our tour with Adil through the Atlas Mountains was the highlight of our trip to Marrakech! After several days in the hustle and bustle of the city it was so relaxing to escape to the Atlas, take in the scenery, enjoy the food and meet the people.
Adil picked us up in his immaculate 4x4 (such a change from Marrakech taxis!) at 9:15 and in approx 1hr we were in the mountains learning about the production and use if Argan oil. We then had a delicious tea by the river and continued up the mountains stopping for various photos and giving sweets to excited children. We bought 100 lollies and only 1 was left at the end!
We then stopped to have a lunch in a Berber home. We had a delicious tomato salad, chicken and vegetable tagines, bread and cous cous. The food Habiba made was delicious and I was so grateful that it was no problem to make a vegetarian option. We had lunch on the terrace in the sun and then had the sweetest oranges I have ever tasted!
We then said bye to the kids and headed back down, with Adil stopping to give a young boy clothes along the way and passing various overloaded trucks on their way back from the Market!
This was a thoroughly enjoyable trip which I would recommend to anyone who has a few days in Marrakech. Adil was a great guide, with an excellent knowledge of Marrakech & the Atlas. The donations he brings for the Berber families are also great - I recommend bringing clothes, stationary & toys for the kids - we only brought sweets and regretted it! They are so appreciative of anything you give them.
