This company sure knows what customer service and offering a genuine Morrocan experience is all about! I thoroughly recommend staying a few days at one of their Riads, but just make sure you take a day or to to travel up into the Atlas Mountains as well. Yours truly spent a day hiking around Imil and it was just wonderful. The football pitch high up in the mountains where the local villagers meet up regularly for the beautiful game is a site to behold. I challenge anyone to find a pitch with a better view.
While at the Riad, make sure you sample some genuine Morrocan food cooked up be one of their excellent chefs. I also had the pleasure of meeting the owner, who has a real drive to offer his guests a fantastic stay. Nice guy too.
