We chose Adil to take us on a excursion to the Atlas Mountains and we were incredibly happy we chose him.
As a private tour guide Adil comes highly recommended. He is personable, speaks great English and has a great sense of humour!
We felt really comfortable in his company and were impressed with his knowledge and stories- he kept us entertained and engaged all day.
We also appreciated Adil's ability to give us space as a group to explore things by ourselves- whilst always making sure that we knew where we were going and felt ok with the plans. We feel we definately benefitted from having a local show us around as he was able to show us local customs and steer us away from tourist traps.
On our day with him we visited a Berber market, continued onto lalla takerkoust and Asni valley then onto an absolutely incredible lunch with a Berber family. Wow!
After filling our bellies with the most delicious meal we had in all our time in Marrakech, we continued on to Ourika Valley and the Argan Oil Co-operative.
This trip was definately one of the highlights of our trip and we would not hesitate to recommend Adil as a fantastic guide for anybody wishing to have a really excellent tour in all respects. Worth every dirham!! :)

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.

After several disappointing days in Marrakesh, my partner & I were wishing we had chosen a different holiday location. Luckily we came across the previous reviews and decided to book a half day tour with Adil. This was definitely the best decision we had made since arriving in Marrakesh and our trip to the Ourika Valley was the highlight of our holiday.

Adil is a charming, friendly and intuitive guide with an excellent knowledge of the area, the Berbers and all things Moroccan. He provided a highly personalised service that was tailor made to suit us.

I could write pages but will resist the urge to describe every detail about our time with him. All I will say is that if you do decide to book Adil you will not be disappointed. He is a lovely man who will show you the real sights and sounds of Morocco. I know that I will return to Marrakesh and will book a 2 day tour with him next time.

Shukran Adil!

Adil and 4x4 Camel lived up to every 5 star review I read prior to booking. He was absolutely amazing! I completely agree with everything from the promptness of his responses to the specifically catered day trip.

When booking my trip, Adil recommended that we schedule it for Monday. I learned upon his arrival at our riad that he recommended this day specifically because we'd be able to walk through a Berber market which only happens weekly. That was so thoughtful to me. He knew that we were really interested in seeing how the people live and work, and that's exactly what he showed us. Additionally, we told him that we wanted to purchase Argan oil (don't leave Morocco without it), tagines, and silver. Not only did he take us to places where we could purchase these items, but he took us to the best place he knew of with the most authentic materials. The place where we purchased the Argan oil was a co-operative which supports women who are either divorced or widowed by providing them jobs making the oil by hand. It was amazing. If you get to go here, make sure you try the argan honey and the argan butter...YUM!

The last part of our trip was to the Berber house for lunch. The journey there took us through amazing mountains views, and we stopped a few times along the way to take pictures. These were the most beautiful sights we saw in Morocco. There were grassy hills with the Atlas Mountains in the background. Absolutely stunning. Once we arrived in the Berber village where our meal was being prepared, we began to see the children. Adil's connection with these children is amazing. They were SO excited to see him. One little boy, no more than 4-years-old, practically jumped in the car with excitement. I was so happy that we brought candy and pencils for them. They loved it.

The meal at the Berber house was the highlight of our entire trip. It was "fantabulous"! LOL! The best meal we had in Morocco...and that's not to say that our other meals weren't great. This homemade meal was just above and beyond. Chicken tagine, cous cous, everything.

Bottom-line, book with Adil. You won't regret it. :) We met as strangers in a business arrangement, and we parted as friends. I will cherish this trip forever.

After the hectic life of Marrakech my boyfriend and I hired Adil for the day to take us into the Atlas Mountains, hoping for a change of scenery! Adil offers a range of options of tours, so the flexibility to choose what you want to do is very liberating. From the moment he arrived Adil was incredibly professional. He picked us up from our hotel in a clean and safe 4x4 and drove us into the Mountains. He's extremely knowledgable about Berber culture and Moroccan life in general and was happy to talk while driving us around. We visited a berber market (where we were not pressued to buy anything). It was a great taste of traditional berber life and was full of amazing smells, sights and tastes! We visited the Argan Oil Cooperative, run entirely by women, and again, no pressure to buy the product. This was enlightening and empowering. Heading deeper into the mountains, we visited some Berber villages and stopped to have lunch in the home of a lovely family. They were very welcoming, and the views were spectacular over the valley. The food was delicious (typical Moroccan) and meeting the family gave us a chance to ask Adil about the way of life of people who live in the Atlas mountain region. We had looked at reviews before we arrived and had brought sweets and pencils for the children of the village. They really appreciated the gesture and was great to see them interact together. Just a tip for anyone thinking of going!

The whole day was very well organised, professional and very interesting. Getting out into the tranquil mountains was a welcome break from the craziness of Marrakech. Adil's tour of the Atlas mountains was culturally sensitive and he has a deep connection with the people who live in the region. If you want a real taste of Moroccan life, don't look elsewhere, Adil's tailor made trips are perfect!
