Adil collected us at the arranged time and we went to the Berber markets first and then to the argan oil collaborative. Then up into the Atlas mountains and a traditional lunch ( which was one of the best meal we had all holiday) in a villagers house. Great value and Adil is passionate about the social aspects of bringing people to the mountains and likes to ensure that isolated villages have a fair share of the tourism which i think is admirable. You do see some sad situations e.g a young boy who had lost his sight recently following a fall but Adil really seems to care about the welfare and impact of his business on the traditional way of life and is very respectful of this. Although Adil asks that you take jumpers and pencils the children wanted sweets and footballs! i would take these if i went again. I know some websites say this is not advisable but in reality they dont get sweets every day and Adil does ensure that they are given sparingly. My advice would be to take some clothes for young children i.e. under 12 years old and also some sweets and toys if you can find room in your cases. Just be careful at the oil cooperative as they wrapped my item in sticky tape and when i got home it wasnt the item i had wanted but this could have genuinely been my mistake.
