Nous avons passés une journée exceptionnelle. Notre guide y ai pour beaucoup. Said s'est montré très intéressant, disponible, drôle et sympathique. Nous avons découvert Marrakech différemment.

Esperienza che sicuramente rimarrà nel cuore. Prelevati al punto d'incontro perché il Riad era inaccessibile con la macchina, il driver è stato molto disponibile e gentile. Subito il giro in cammello, carino, proseguendo il tour siamo passati per la cooperativa dell'argan, la quale la depennerei dalla giornata, poiché sbrigativa e troppo turistica. Il loro unico pensiero era accaparrarsi delle vendite. Arrivati a Imil è iniziata una giornata davvero speciale. La guida MOHAMED meraviglioso, gentile e estremamente umile. Dopo le cascate e una passeggiata tra i villaggi berberi ci ha portato a pranzare a casa sua, insieme alla sua famiglia e i suoi due splendidi figli. Sono una famiglia umilissima, ma piena di dignità. Avevano poco da offrire materialmente ma umanamente siamo tornati con un bagaglio di calore e valori. Bravo Mohamed! Ti vogliamo bene
