Full description

Set out from Marrakesh to experience life in the Atlas Mountains on this tour. The Berbers have called the region home for centuries. Discover their traditions and enjoy a meal. From the mountains, descend to the desert to ride a camel over the dunes. The first stop on the tour is the city of Tahanaoute. Visit a special cooperative where Berber women produce argan oil. You’ll get to try it in a traditional breakfast along with olive oil, organic honey, and fresh bread. After your meal, learn about the Berbers’ daily life. Cross through several Berber villages before reaching Imlil, the town offers sweeping views of Toubkal and the other mountains. Begin your descent and pass through the Berber village of Asni. It’s well-known for the market it hosts on Saturdays. Spend some time in the nearby valley. The waterfalls and the surrounding mountains are great for taking pictures.

After having good time with the Berbers, you will be back to Marrakech.

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! :)

Had a wonderful trip with Mohammed! This trip to Imlil was a well organised escape from Marrakesh to see the Atlas Mountians. Mohammed drove very safely, shared some interesting facts about Morocco and we made many stops that felt very authentic and free from tour groups. We really enjoyed the tea in a Berber home and the included lunch was delicious and in such a peaceful setting overlooking the village of Imlil. It was a short walk to see the waterfall and we were given many photo opportunities and time to take in the surroundings. Mohammed is very friendly and fun and I would recommend booking with him if you want a nice and hassle free day trip to the Atlas Mountains.

Mohamed, la nostra guida per tutto il tour, e' stato molto puntuale, discreto e gentile. Ci ha accompagnato per tutto il percorso, rispettando anche alcune nostre esigenze. Abbiamo visitato le cascate e il centro di Imlil, sulla catena montuosa dell'Atlante, con bellissimi e suggestivi panorami. Abbiamo preso il te in una terrazza di un'abitazione con una bellissima vista ed un bel sole caldo, per.p poi pranzare in una terrazza privata, dove ci e' stato offerto un pranzo molto genuino. Mohamed ci ha raccontato molte cose sulle abitudini e le usanze del posto. Ci ha accompagnato all'hotel in serata, con un pezzetto di cuore in meno.... Escursione consigliatissima!
