What people are saying about Azrou

My husband and I booked the half atlas tour and everything was perfect. Very beautiful landscapes and very good driving. Our guide-driver was Otmane. Otmane explained many things about the Moroccan culture to us, he speaks perfectly Spanish and English, among other languages, so he did not hesitate to explain to us in Spanish all our curiosities about his culture. At the monkey stand, I had the bad luck that a monkey bit my hand. Otmane quickly dressed my wound and took me to the hospital. He streamlined all the paperwork to be attended quickly and everything went perfectly. I thank you for your concern and your great humanity. Without a doubt, on my next trip to Fez, we will repeat with Otmane. 100% recommendable. Thank you Otmane for making the Middle Atlas excursion so enjoyable and interesting. Good luck in life.

I enjoyed the tour a great deal! Our guide, Youssef was a very nice person and also a knowledgeable guide. He answered patiently at all our questions about the Berber culture and about the places we saw during the tour. The lunch provided in one of the Berber villages (Chicken tajine with vegetables) i can say it was the best tajine I had during my stay in Marrakech :) I have only words of praise for this tour! Best regards, Youssef! :)

The trip was a great change from the hustle and bustle of Fez. Everything was well organized from the pick-up to the whole day's program. Our driver, Otmane, told us a lot about the area and was considerate of our every need. Absolutely worth it!

Amazing tour to Ifrane and the national park including other stops like the Berber cave and a lookout point plus having a break for delicious food. Driver/guide was awesome. Absolutely to recommend.
