Took a one day excursion to the Atlas mountain. The tour cost varies in price from different tour operator. 200 to 350 Dhirams. Have to bargain to get the lowest price. Always start low. The tour includes 2 to 3 hours drive to the Atlas mountain where there is several waterfalls. The price includes transportation only but the tour operators... More

We booked a tour the day we arrived in Marrakech. We visited a Berber village and visited a setup for tourists Berber household. It gave us a good feeling of how it was like. We went into the mountains to climb through overgrowth, up steep paths and across a small river with a waterfall nearby - that was exciting but... More

Having had a bad experience going round the city of Marrakech with a driver who was not a guide...we decided to deliberately book a guide/driver for a day trip to the High Atlas. We wanted to see Berber villages, find out about their history, their way of life, get away from the madding crowd, and possibly see some wildlife -... More

The High Atlas Mountains are so stunning. The scenery changes dramatically as you drive out of Marrakech to Skoura to Oarzazate to Tenerhir to Merzouga to Fes. Each has a unique and interesting ecosystem. These were my favorite days, driving through the Atlas Mountains, watching the villagers, and seeing the beauty of the Moroccan landscapes.

This isn't a causal walk to see a waterfall. This was physically demanding and scary at times, especially considering NO ONE had appropriate footwear or clothes to scale this mountain. Q You will literally be taken off the beaten track on foot to scale the mountain, with the ultimate aim to see a small waterfall. A lot of my group... More

We did the three day tour from Marrakesh to Erg Chebbi and back with Hassan as our driver and Driss as the tour guide. All major sights and activities were included (Ait Benhaddou, Dades and Todra gorge, Camel trek, Desert) and everything went very well. Nice, knowledgeable company, absolutely recommeded!

Of our tour with Desert Dream4x4 to the desert, I remember very lively the amazing and exciting drive over Tiz´n´Tichka-pass and the spectacular view on all these beautiful mountains around. You can see white summits, colorful mountains in green and red, deep gorges, and traditional berber villages on your way. Behind every curve there are new wonders enfolding in front... More

What a drive through the Atlas Mountains. We drove through the mid atlas and then the high atas. The most gorgeous views you'll ever see in your life and I've travelled a lot. You'll see lunar landscapes, desert, and everything is very red with caves and ruins in some places. A must see.

A day trip to the Atlas Mountains is a must. So beautiful , so different from Marrakesh and wonderful to see the Berber landscape.
