“Super all way through !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

As a family with 2 girls aged 10 & 12 and not much time at hand, we wanted a private, organized and safe trip trough Morocco.
We can only highly recommend Atlas and Sahara tours - we had a fabulous experience all way through. The only thing we would do different is take more time with us next time (we had a busy schedule). Good lodging, a very safe and secure driver, and our guide made our trip very memorable. We absolutely loved the hiking experience in the mountains, which was a unique experience thanks to the great organization.
We will come back!

“The best part of our Moroccan Adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Our family of four spent a week in Morocco -- 3 nights in Marrakech, 2 nights in Agadir, and 2 nights on a private tour with this company. There are many companies that can organize tours, but Mustapha's prompt and professional correspondence made Atlas and Sahara Day Tours a stand out from the start! Our first night was spent at a nomadic camp in the Sahara Desert outside of Zagora. True, the quintessential dunes of Merzouga would have been a more ideal choice, but we chose to camp closer due to the very long drives each day (especially since we had kids in the car). There was plenty of sand prior to and around the camp, so we were not disappointed. The camel ride, meals, tents, entertainment, and guides at the desert camp were great!! The next day was spent driving into the Atlas Mountains with several stops along the way. Mustapha's riad -- Jnane Imlil -- is stunning and the meals were incredible!! Hassan, our guide, was knowledgable and helpful, always answering the myriad of questions we asked. On our final day, he took us on a hike around Imlil and to the waterfalls -- just beautiful! Although the driving time in the Land Cruiser was long, our kind driver Mohammed did a perfect job and we were as comfortable as possible. Mustapha even made it a point to come to the riad and meet us -- we were very impressed with him and his entire staff! Overall: fantastic experience from start to finish!!

“Fabulous Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

We used this Company for our Airport Transfers and for a day in the Atlas Mountains. My queries beforehand were dealt with efficiently. I was a bit concerned when it took an hour & a half to get through passport control that our transfer would have left, but our driver was sitting there waiting patiently. The day out was one of the most memorable of my life. Beautiful views, excellent lunch and a very helpful guide Hassan who came from the village we visited and was very friendly & knowledgeable.The camel ride was fun & the even the camels were friendly which suggested to me they were well looked after. All in all, brilliant!

“Fantastic day trip to Atlas Mountains”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

My husband and I visited Marrakech and wanted to spend a day in the Atlas Mountains. We booked with Atlas and Sahara Tours from the UK. Mustapha was extremely helpful in setting out the options we had for a day trip from camel rides to trekking. We decided that we wanted to trek the mountains and were not disappointed! We were collected from our Riad by a driver and taken to the Riad Juane to start our trek. Our guide, Rasheed, a local Berber was an excellent guide and so much fun! We trekked up the mountain whilst speaking to our guide about local life. We asked half way to see a mountain and our guide took us on a detour through the some rough track to see a local (and not so touristy) waterfall which was lovely! After lunch we did another walk up the mountain to see some more local villages which were humbling. Locals inviting you in for tea is testament to the nature of the friendless we experienced.

The day went perfectly and the trip was the best part of our 4 day trip.

“Private tours by Moha of Unique Morocco Adventures”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

This 2 week long tour of Marrakech, the Sahara and thre Atlas Mountains was remarkable. Our guide, in addition to being knowledgable and very well informed about his country, was also accomodating and generous, picking us up and dellivering us to the airport even though it was not a booked day, and taking us to the Majorelle garden as a special treat (on him). He knew the best places to stay and when we asked for "interesting hotels and places to stay", he found them. He even took us to his family's typical Berber house for lunch one day, a high point. We observed other driver guides on our week long sojourn and we are convinced we had the best guide in Morocco. We also covered an amazing lot of ground because Moha knew all sorts of places to show us, off the track. He is a good driver, with a good 4 wheel drive car, always clean and supplied with water. We learlned more about the culture than we expected, and we enjoyed every minute of our adventure, Moha seems to know everyone and can allways get a table in the shade for lunch, and a bottle of wine if you want one. We spent 3 days in Marrakech at the beginning and the end of our week of travel and it was perfect. We recommend this tour guide without reservation. We found Moha on Trip Advisor.
