“Make sure your squeeze this in....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

So you've see Marrakech, well add a bit of variety to your time there - head off into the Atlas Mountains - well worth the effort. I arranged it through Riad Attajmil, our guide awas Hassan Khaziz he's based at the Centre Information Touristique (CIT) nr to the start of the Ourika. The guys a top guide and qualified physicist (not quite Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory - thankfully) we had some limitations and we were able to work out the best route to use the time available. Hassan knows nearly everyone in the region and being with him limits the number of guys that hustle with one another to guide tourists through the mountain trails. We saw some great scenary, learnt about the history of the region the differences between the Arabs and the Berbers, talked about cultural differences between UK and Morocco, and ate with Brahim and his family - a local Berber who had prepared a decent tagine and introduced us the the etiquette of drinking team in Morocco - an art form in it's self - just do it...

“Fantastic experience of the Atlas Mountains”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

Abdou, who I dealt with and who organised our tour guide was very prompt on email and answered all my queries about the trek almost immediately! We got picked up from Marrakech by a driver, well on time, and our guide Hamid was a great cook as well as great mountain guide. I wound recommend using Abdou as you will have an amazing and unforgettable experience.

“Nice trip to get out of the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

We were a bit fed up of all the medina and wanted to go somewhere clean and different so we found abdul on tripadvisors and a few emails latter we were booked. He took us to his local town up in the mountains and we had a nice walk to see how the people live over there. We had a very nice meal cooked by his wife, it was the best tajine we had on our trip. It was a nice opportunity to see how real people live in Morocco and would use Abdul again. The only thing we wouldnt do again is the camel ride as we had to ride the camels in the middle of a busy road and they got terrified everytime a car went by (which was often!). We felt very bad for them. Apart from this it was nice and we would recommend that people spend longer walking through the mountains with Abdul.

“Excellent trekking in the Atlas mountains”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

A really good way to see the Atlas. Moroccan Mountains will customise a tour for any size group into the mountains. I went solo with a guide and muleteer/cook (and a mule) and it was an excellent trip.

They will pick you up in Marrakech and take you to your starting point and then you set off into the mountains. They organise everything - itinerary, food and accommodation – and whole thing is very good value.

I hadn't been to the Atlas before and I found the going tougher than I imagined, primarily because you are often climbing up quite rough terrain. That said, I managed the whole trip except for the final 1,000m of Toubkal, which was beyond my ability. (The Inca Trail, for example, is a much easier trek. Here there are not many obvious paths and you are sometimes scrambling up scree or over big boulders).

Sturdy trainers are fine except for the final bit of Toubkal, for which you will need boots. It is very hot in the day (t-shirt weather) and cold at night, so take layers. You can rent walking poles at the start of the hike.

Accommodation is basic but clean. The food was great and in large quantities.

I had a great time. Very recommended.

“Fantastic 5-day hike around berber villages!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

I checked several companies and Trekking Morocco Mountains offered a great program for a good price. They took care of everything, picking me up in Marrakech and also arranging the food and accommodation for the whole hike. I would definitely recommend it and can guarantee that you will be taken care of for the whole trip.
