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.

This 2 week long tour of Marrakech, the Sahara and thre Atlas Mountains was remarkable. Our guide, in addition to being knowledgable and very well informed about his country, was also accomodating and generous, picking us up and dellivering us to the airport even though it was not a booked day, and taking us to the Majorelle garden as a special treat (on him). He knew the best places to stay and when we asked for "interesting hotels and places to stay", he found them. He even took us to his family's typical Berber house for lunch one day, a high point. We observed other driver guides on our week long sojourn and we are convinced we had the best guide in Morocco. We also covered an amazing lot of ground because Moha knew all sorts of places to show us, off the track. He is a good driver, with a good 4 wheel drive car, always clean and supplied with water. We learlned more about the culture than we expected, and we enjoyed every minute of our adventure, Moha seems to know everyone and can allways get a table in the shade for lunch, and a bottle of wine if you want one. We spent 3 days in Marrakech at the beginning and the end of our week of travel and it was perfect. We recommend this tour guide without reservation. We found Moha on Trip Advisor.

We had the most wonderful experience with Mohammed as our guide to the Atlas Mountains. Mohammed is very engaging and knowledgable about Berber culture, history and ecology. The trip is very smoothly run, the whole team could not have done more to make our day enjoyable. The camels were great fun to ride, and clearly much loved by their owner; the lunch was delicious and enormous- served on the roof of an intricately decorated guesthouse with amazing views. The hike was a strenuous enough climb to make you feel better about the 3 courses just consumed, with so much interest- waterfalls, villages at high altitude, snow capped mountains, the occasional Berber tea house. Highly recommended and an utter bargain with lunch included at £80 each!
