The short trip from Marrakech to the High Atlas Mountains exceeded my expectations. The mountains rise to over 14000 feet with snow caps most of the year. My guide, Faycal Benhida from MoroccoMarrakechExpeditions.com drove me all over the area and showed me great views, wonderful food and local color. The easy access for a day trip from the Marrakech summer... More

Spent one day touring the Medina and Souk market with a guide, lots of walking but worth it. Next day off to the Atlas Mountains. Driver took very good care and explained tribal history which was so interesting. On the way back we stopped for lunch in nice resort. We have found everyone so helpful, and I would recommend Marrakech... More

This was only part of our tour and what scenery and views the walk was great a little bit tasking at times as Aussies we take in all as it is all very different to back home and to have to fly over 24 hours to get to these places we make the best of all that is offered.

Went to Marrakech in December of 2012. It was great to get away in winter from the UK to the heat of Africa. A mini break for 3 nights four days. Perfect trip before christmas. The atlas mountains are simply stunning. Wonderful scenery. We did not go all the way up the mountain as we hired a taxi for the... More

Stunning scenery and untouched beauty. Its lovely to get up here and aways from Marrakech. Its cooler and a lot less pollution. Certainly worth a day trip here or driving through enroute to the desert.

A most pleasant trip but be prepared to walk and walk. The atlas mountains are truly amazing and a must to do when in Morocco

We stayed at the Riad Trois Mages and booked a full day tour with them. I would never attempt to drive to the Atlas Mountains because the roads are very narrow and full of curves. Plus, our guide grew up in the Berber community and his information about life and their culture was invaluable. It is good to go on... More

Beautiful area, lovely hotels, but hard to find spots to stay unless you book early . Small local villages are becoming very touristy , so go soon!
