“Great guide”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

The visit to the berber village was a bit of a culture shock. The museum is a steep climb up through the village and we were hassled for money from young boys. However,the villages were friendly and the guide showing us around the lovely museum is very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. He told us he had learnt to speak English in just five months at the beginning of this year. He told us the stories woven into the beautiful carpets and we saw how the homes and lives would have been years ago. He them took us on a guided walk through the valley around the village and explained a lot about life there today. It was a great experience and we felt very welcome.

“A great way to experience Amazigh culture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We had a great time with Khalid. Book your trip through the photography museum in Marrakech. They'll set you up with someone who will help you get grand taxi to meet Khalid in Ourika. From there, you've got options.There are waterfalls, gardens, and of course the museum.

Khalid really steals the show. He speaks a ton of languages and is a great, funny guy. You eat lunch at his house (a really nice place) with his family, and you get to see them work - his dad and brother are both ceramic artists.

This was one of our favorite activities during our 6 weeks in Morocco!

“A wonderful insight into Berber culture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

A fantastic experience. Khalid provides a brilliant insight into a way of life and a community that has a great deal of wisdom and natural richness. A day of surprise (who knew that the Berber language was in part German in origin), great food (plums and apricots straight from the tree ), good humour and hospitality. Thank you, Khalid for the welcome to your village, the smiles of your family anf friends, and one of the best days of my life.
