“1 day trek and overnight in the Imlil valley with Ahmed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

We booked this 'easier' trek (due to our short stay)through Chris and Ahmed which was a pleasant and extremely efficient process. The taxi met us at our riad in Marrakech and took us to our start point and Ahmed,our guide. A pleasure to spend this time in the Atlas and Ahmed a charming,kind and interesting guide. We were so well taken care of..the stay in the Berber village a wonderful,welcoming place..Ahmed fixed everything and deserves all the credit possible for the effort he makes for us to really experience a truly memorable trek. Many thanks. Trek Atlas and Ahmed.

“8 day trip to the high Atlas including ascent of Toubkal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Just returned from an amazing trip to the high Atlas with my girlfriend! Trek Atlas has been very professional, trust-worthy and welcoming, making our week in Morocco an amazing experience! Right from the start we have been in close contact with Chris and Ahmed who helped us to plan a tailor-made trek to fit our aspirations and physical abilities. Our guide Hassan, who spoke English fluently, was friendly, attentive and always devoted to our wellbeing! Being native from the region, he was able to give us detailed information about the Berber culture and helped us to get in touch with locals! Our cook, also called Hassan, was always in a good mood and prepared the most amazing food (actually better than the food we tried in the typical tourist restaurants in Marrakesh). All the obvious predjudices we had, visiting a country with a different culture, have clearly been proven wrong. The absolute highlight of the trip was our ascent of Toubkal! Even though not posted clearly on the homepage, I also recommend asking for the other slightly more difficult peaks around Toubkal (such as Ouanoukrim) if you are into alpinism! I will definitely return to do these summits in the future! In conclusion, we can strongly recommend Trek Atlas! Our first choice if we come back for another trek ourselves!

“Fantastic Trek!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Just got back from 3 day valley trek with Trek Atlas. We had an excellent trip. Our guides Ebrahim & Berber chef/mule handler Hassan were great companions. They tailored our trek to the weather conditions and walking abilities and offered a choice of routes. If you’re looking for a hiking adventure then try these guys. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and will definitely be returning to explore more of the Atlas range. Overall: stunning mountain scenery, good food, gallons of mint tea and very welcoming fun guides!!
UK contact: Chris, friendly, informative and responded quickly and helpfully
Moroccan contact: Ahmed, friendly, helpful, nothing was too much trouble

“A great trek in the Atlas Mountains”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

In May this year a group of 6 friends decided to do a trek in the Atlas Mountains. We had trekked in Europe before but this was our first experience of a “package” trek where our only responsibility was getting to Marrakech and back. We chose Trek Atlas and have no regrets.
The pick up in Marrakech went smoothly and we were met by Ahmed in Imlil at the start of the trek. He was an excellent guide and knew the route well. His English was fluent and he told us a lot about the Berber way of life which is gradually changing. Our accommodation was a mixture of camping – in idyllic spots – guest houses and the Toubkal refuge.
Our ascent of Toubkal was the highlight of the trek – a very early start but stunning views from the summit made it all worthwhile. It was a long day and we were glad to get back to our guest house in Imlil for a good meal and early night.
Ahmed and his team were always helpful – the food was freshly prepared and typically Moroccan. Ahmed was always concerned for our safety and when one of us was ill even went and found another mule for him to ride on until he recovered.
We look forward to returning to Morocco and will go again with Trek Atlas.
