“What an amazing experience in Asni Valley”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

Last week my 2 daughters and I visited Marrakesh. Since its a close distance from the Atlas mountains we thought we would get off our sunloungers and do something active. I looked at Tripadvisor for ideas and found Atlas and Sahara tours. Mustapha, the owner, very promptly answered all my questions by email and helped with choosing the right trip. We chose a day trip to the Asni Valley. We were picked up by a comfortable people carrier car and the 3 of us set off. En route we picked up our guide for the day who was Mohammed. More about him later. There was no waiting, all worked like clockwork. On arrival to Imlil, our starting point, we had some tea and set off for a walk up to 2000m observing small villages and life of the locals and scenery which was breathtaking. Snow at the top in distance and air so pure. Mohammed (bless him) looked after us- we are not the fittest people on the planet, he helped, waited, explained, supported. His love and regard for his environment and us as clients was exemplary. he is genuinely a nice human being who values his work. At the top he treated us to tea in a local dwelling and we got our breath back! The way down took us past a waterfall, so many photo opportunities. Finally we got back to Mustaphas house on the edge of Imlil village, where we were treated to a fantastic lunch on a roof terrace- tagine so tasty and salad, all so clean and beautifully prepared. Fruit desert followed. We got back to the hotel at about 1700. I left my jumper at the house in Imlil and Mustapha emailed me about it and next day delivered it to the hotel, eventhough I told him not to waste his time making the 1.5 hour journey. Overall amazing day, amazing memories and a company that they all should be proud of. Next time( after some serious fitness prep we want to go for the overnighter up in the hills. There will be a next time as we will never forget how lovely it was.

“Amazing 2 day adventure to Sahara!”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

We booked a private 2 day tour to the Zagora Sahara. From the start, Mustapha was extremely helpful. From my initial inquiries, through booking and to follow-up at the end of our trip. My husband and I had a fantastic time on this adventure and really enjoyed our overnight experience in the Sahara. The tour was very well organized and the guides were fantastic! Rashid was an amazing guide, he was very attentive to details and super nice! Mohammed was also great with the drive and we really trusted him and felt safe during the journey. The tour stops and restaurants along the journey were also very pleasant and everyone was very friendly. The overnight stay in the desert at the nomadic camp was a truly amazing experience and the tents with beds were very comfortable. Overall, we had an amazing time and we really appreciated the short trip away from Marrakech. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone! Thank you again Mustapha, Rashid & Mohammed!!! We will remember this for our lifetime.

“Fantastic two day horse trek in Atlas Mountains!”
Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

We booked a private two day horse trek through the Atlas Mountains with Mustapha he was extremely helpful when booking and answered all of the emails we sent extremely promptly! The whole tour was excellently organised and we highly recommend booking through Mustapha! Our tour guide Mohammed was great and Hussain and his 3 horses were brilliant-it was a truly amazing experience passing through Berber villages, riding round mountains and up rivers-a must for a horse fans out there! We were taken to Mustapha's Riad at the end if the trek to freshen up and for mint tea-the Riad has only just been built and it is truly beautiful-we intend on returning so we can stay in one of the stylish rooms! Thanks to Mustapha and his team for a truly unforgettable experience

“Trip to Telouet and Ait Benhadou”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

We had a trip over the Tizi n'Tichka to visit the Kasbahs at Telouet and Ait Benhadou with Abdul and Abdul - great guys! After the scary, noisy traffic in Marrakech this was delightful, and so informative. We loved the scenery through the mountains and the kasbahs were amazing - we will be back, but for a couple of days next time to get further south.

“Better than we could have hoped for!”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

We booked a two night, three day tour of the Imlil valley through Mustapha, who was brilliant at helping us choose the right tour for us, go when we wanted and arrange dietry requirments and pickup and dropoff points. We assumed that we would be in a group with other tourists as we had not read at any point that it would be a private tour and so were blown away to find that it was just the two of us with our own Englsh speaking guide Mohamed, chef Lessan and mule to carry our things! Mohamed was so friendly and helpful throughout and Lessan made the best meals we had during our trip to Morocco on a camping stove on the side of a mountain (and loads of it!). The scenery was breath taking and weather perfect in March. Staying the the Berber house was a fun experience but we were really pleasantly surprised to find our second night's accomodation was in a beautiful Riad in the moutains, owned by Mustapha. Would highly recommend this trip to everyone!
