“Sahara Desert Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

We had originally booked a trek to Mount Toubkal and two of our party developed health problems and we needed to switch to an alternative, less physical activity. Mohamed was understanding and said it was fine, to switch last minute.
We had a driver and a guide, and both were called Abdellah. The driver was sensible and carefull at all times. He drove us around 1000 kilometres in three days and his driving was flawless.
The other Abdellah was very chatty, and spoke a few languages. He was a good organiser and quickly found an extra room when he wanted a room of his own.
The desert was wonderful. We saw the sunrise and sunset and slept in a tent at the edge of the dunes.
We arrived a little late, though at 8pm and then waited nearly three hours for our food.
Riding the camels was an experience, which was calming, It was so quiet.
Thank you Mohamed

“Mount Toubkal trek”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

I've just returned from a trek to Mount Toubkal , Morocco. Was fantastic. We were well looked after by Mohamed and his team, accommodation and food were both good and well organised. Plus a helping hand was given when my legs decided they had had enough on the descent !
I would recommend a trip with them :-)

“The perfect trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

Mohamed arranged our trip to Ourika Valley and Ait Ben Haddou. We had lots of questions regarding the trips prior to the trip but he was always quick to reply. The trips were amazing and we were never rushed through anything - we were able to take our time en route to take pictures of the landscape and we could choose where we wanted / didn't want to visit - so were never pressurised to purchase anything! The guide was always prompt, friendly and accommodating, doing everything to ensure we were having the best time possible. Lunch on both days were great, again - we were not rushed through and could take our time. The only down side? That we didn't know we were going to drive through the amazing Atlas Mountains!! I would happily recommend Mohamed to all anyone who is thinking of visiting Morocco!

“Atlas Mountains February 2014”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Went on a seven day trip this year. Had an excellent time going through Berber Villages and making the trek through the mountains. The daily climbs had fantastic views and the overnight stays were unique, but enjoyable.

Mohammad, our guide, I cannot say enough good thing about him. Very knowledgeable and friendly guy. He met the climbers where they were at physically and did not go beyond anyone's limitations. With that said, I never felt slowed down or irriated in any way.

In short, I recommend the winter climb. It was challenging, not technical. After spending a copious amount of time with Mohammad and his team, I am considering coming back and checking out the Sahara Desert. Great experience.
