  1. Didi

    Fantastic trekking in the Atlas Mountains
    We had a wonderful 3 days trekking with our excellent guide Lahcen and cook abdel. Both of them were professional throughout and very accommodating of our mixed ability group. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they both did everything they could to make sure that we all had a fantastic time, including allowing a choice of 2 routes for the different groups on our tour. The trekking is through beautiful scenery the routes are well-planned. It is challenging – we did about 35miles over the 3 days with steep inclines – but the views (and Abdel’s delicious freshly prepared tagine) at the top made it very rewarding.

    As others have mentioned, the accommodation is very good with Berber family, From an administration point of view – it was easy to get in touch with the tour operator via WhatsApp on the number on your voucher. The decision to charge separately for lunches (21€pp/3days) is strange, these are delicious but not optional and would be better included in the (otherwise excellent value) tour price. Also, this is not necessarily
    an individual tour as stated on TripAdvisor,

    Overall we would heartily recommend the trip – full of challenge, fun, laughter and new experiences – thank you once again Lahcen and abdel for a fantastic trip we will remember for years to come!
