“Trip to the Atlas Mountains to see Berber traditions and the Ourika Valley”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

This was a fascinating day out which involved lots of landscapes being covered by 4x4 within one varied day out: - driving through great mountain scenery, a short walk up beautiful waterfalls and a chance to meet and eat with Berber artisans and families, enabling us to gain an insight into local trades and traditions and buy some local products. This is a good trip for people staying in Marrakech who are keen to get an insight into the mountain scenery and local traditions in only a day. The guides were friendly, and helpful, with an excellent knowledge of the area and grasp of English. Good email contact made the booking process quick and reassuring. Thank you to Chakib and all involved for a very enjoyable experience!

“Excellent Three Valley Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

We chose this tour after much research into the alternative choices available on the Internet and booked ahead of our visit to Marrakech. We were not disappointed! The evening before our trip Chakib, our driver and tour guide, rang the hotel to let us know that there would be a large Berber market two days later which we could visit if we wished to change our days. Unfortunately, this was not possible as the following day was our last in Marrakech, but it was a good omen! Chakib's attentiveness was evident throughout the trip. He arrived to pick us up from our hotel the following morning very promptly and we discussed our itinerary. We were given the option of enjoying lunch specially prepared for us in a home in a Berber village - what an experience, certainly not one to miss. Apart from savouring excellent local, authentic food, we were given the opportunity to meet members of a Berber family and be entertained in their house.
Throughout the day Chakib showed his detailed knowledge of the area, of which he was very proud and explained everything in perfect English. He made sure that we got the most out of the tour - leaving us in the very capable hands of a knowledgable guide at the Argan oil co-operative, stopping to give us the best views and, where appropriate, allowing us to walk and enjoy the mountain air, picking us up further down the hillside.
On our journey back to the hotel Chakib gave us the bonus of a quick tour of the outskirts of Marrakech, again accompanied by detailed knowledge. To sum up, the scenery is spectacular, the village life fascinating - a trip not to be missed - and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a memorable day in spectacular surroundings, accompanied by a professional but fun guide driving an extremely comfortable vehicle. If we ever return to Marrakech we would definitely use this company for another trip.

“Great 3-day trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

We chose the 3-day trip to see some of the sights of Morocco outside of Marrakech. The trip took us across the Atlas mountains (and we got some snow on the way back!) to Todra gorges and the desert. The desert trip involved a camel ride across the dunes to a nomad tent, where we spent the night, with a view of the sunrise over the dunes next morning. A sandstorm the previous day helped liven up the camel ride.
Our driver Younis was good company, telling us in good English about the sights and the people. He always knew the best spots to stop for a photo, and good places to stop for coffee or lunch. Having your own guide maximises the amount you see, and your understanding of it.
The trip involves long drives, but that is an opportunity to see a lot of the country. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to explore the variety Morocco has to offer in safety and reasonable comfort.

“A highlight of our Marrakesh visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013 via mobile

Starting with the booking, Chakib (the tour guide) was patient with all my enquires (and I had a few as I was calling around different excursion organisers).
We decided on the 3 Valley Tour with lunch at a Berber house, which included pick up and drop off at our Riad.
On the day, Chakib's timing was impeccable (an important factor for anyone on holiday).
We started the tour with Chakib asking about our preference of the areas to visit (confirming the answers to questions I had asked while booking). This instantly made the start of the excursion feel personal.
The entire experience was one to savour throughout. Amazing views accompanied with strong knowledge from our tour guide, Chakib. The picture opportunities were plentiful and Chakib kindly stopped whenever we asked.
The Ourika Valley was my personal favourite and Chakib even gave us the time to rest with a coffee overlooking the streams.
Chakib's English was immaculate and credit to him, he was able to answer all my questions (of which I had many)!
The lunch at the Berber house was very humbling and provided a realistic and grounded experience of Berber life.
From start to end, the entire excursion was everything I could have asked. Chakib was extremely accommodating of everything we requested.
I would recommend this experience and Chakib to any friend or family member, confident that it will be a highlight of their trip!
Thank you

“Great Tour guides, honest, responsible and funny”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We have used Morocco Attractive Day tours twice during our stay in Morroco. The first daily trip was to the Ourika Valley and the second trip was to Essaouira. They are very dedicated professionals who will take full responsibility of your trip requirements. They have preset routes for daily trips but they would happily accomodate changes according to your schedule. The first trip was hosted by Chakib who speaks perfect English. He has a wide range of knowledge about each location and he constantly feeding you with useful information. On our trip to the valleys we stopped multiple times for photos, and site seeing. Various extras were made available to us (lunch at a Berber village, Trekking the waterfalls or stops at local cafes for a refreshing mint tea). The trip was on time and the ride was very good, meeting always safety standards despite the crazy traffic in Morroco. Chakib had communicated very efficiently the plan and he did accomodate any requests that we had. On our second trip we had another driver Abdulrahman who was equally good. Both drivers are engaging in good conversation and will happily show you around all the cool places. I would definetely recommend Morocco Day Tours for couples, families, individiual or large groups. Keep up the good job guys !
