What people are saying about Imlil

This was an excellent introduction for us to the Atlas mountains and the Berber villages at the foot of Toubkal. Our guide Abdul, himself local to one of the villages, was very knowledgeable, very genuine and very friendly. He seemed to know everyone we passed on the streets and mountain paths! He changed his tour plan when he learnt how much we love hiking and we ended actually staying the night in a beautiful hotel overlooking the mountains instead of heading back to Marrakesh. We had a lovely, fresh tajine lunch in a local household and had an extra hike to the nearby pass before watching the sunset over these beautiful mountains and kind, genuine people.

We had a wonderful day walking through the Atlas mountains with our guide. He was very friendly and professional. We started with a walk to his village, had tea at his mother's house (who was also lovely) and then set off on our walk up the mountains, often stepping up large rock stairs and hills, so it does take some walking! After the walk we stopped at a house and had a private lunch of tagine with a view over the snow toppled Atlas mountains. I would highly recommend this tour. Well worth it.

Today I went to Amlil, it is a beautiful area, and with a tour guide named Abdul Jalil, it is a great and friendly guide. His French and English are excellent. He took me on a beautiful hike through the mountains. I visited his house and met his family. All very friendly. We had tea with local nuts the’re delicious. After the break where I slept in the sun. We continued the next hike along a waterfall and up to the lunch in a traditional families house. Highly recommended Abdul +212 642-725495

We had great weather for a February hike in the Atlas Mountains. Our guide Abdul was very friendly and knowledgeable and guided us at a good pace to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Our lunch at the Berber house was delicious.

The guide was very polite and helpful and made sure we had a good trip.
