My husband and I visited Marrakech and wanted to spend a day in the Atlas Mountains. We booked with Atlas and Sahara Tours from the UK. Mustapha was extremely helpful in setting out the options we had for a day trip from camel rides to trekking. We decided that we wanted to trek the mountains and were not disappointed! We were collected from our Riad by a driver and taken to the Riad Juane to start our trek. Our guide, Rasheed, a local Berber was an excellent guide and so much fun! We trekked up the mountain whilst speaking to our guide about local life. We asked half way to see a mountain and our guide took us on a detour through the some rough track to see a local (and not so touristy) waterfall which was lovely! After lunch we did another walk up the mountain to see some more local villages which were humbling. Locals inviting you in for tea is testament to the nature of the friendless we experienced.
The day went perfectly and the trip was the best part of our 4 day trip.
