Ahmed was excellent, responding very promptly and helpfully to our changing requirements from my first enquiry onwards, and putting together the perfect day trip for us. One of our party was not well, and we weren't sure until the day how much walking would be possible, so Ahmed came up with different options involving walks of varying length or no walk at all, in the beautiful valleys around Imlil.
He arrived within 15 minutes of our agreed time, despite our hotel actually being some distance along unsurfaced tracks from their advertised address which I'd given him before departing for Morocco. We then enjoyed a comfortable journey in a 4x4 car through the foothills, followed by wonderful walk with amazing views of the High Atlas peaks covered in snow and Berber villages clinging to the rocks above us - the contrast with the lush green woods in the valley floor and the arid mountainsides and snowfields above in Spring was fabulous. And after the walk, we had a delicious lunch - the best bread we tasted in Morocco and one of the best tagines. All in all, a day to remember.
Ahmed was friendly and helpful throughout, seemed to know everyone in the villages we walked through, and was able to answer all our questions about life in the Berber communities in the mountains from the perspective of someone who had actually grown up and spent his life there.
