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.

It was an amazing experience, they were all very accommodating especially towards our 3 kids 6, 10 and 12 so don't be afraid to take your kids. They even upgraded us into a tent with a private bathroom. Our drive Hassan was very knowledgeable and took into account the kids like food, feeding the money's, donkey and camel rides. In the end he took us to a very colorful place were they make plates and the owners etc the kids make and color their own plates and cups. There is nothing wrong that I can say about this. Thank you all and we will see you again for sure.

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.

Amazing experience that exceeded expectations! The camp was luxurious!
