Great Villages, Great People

The Berber villages and people are charming. The Arabs in the larger towns are accommodating and friendly.

Visiting the mountains was my most enjoyable memory during my stay in Marrakech! It's very relaxing and is much cooler compared to the heat in Marrakech. I highly recommend spending a day here with friends and family. If you do visit, i hope you enjoy your time there!

We did this trip through MarrakechDayTrips,com and have to say it was the most memorable part of our holiday. The trip to the mountain itself was AMAZING and the hike to Mt. Toubkal was the highlight of our stay in Morocco- and we did it with the most fantastic guides- RACHID and MOHAMED ! We hiked in the middle of... More

This place was absolutely stunning! I honestly can't get into words how beautiful this whole area is. We organised a private car with our riad manager to take us to the mountains. I really recommend you do this as it's an isolated place and I'm not sure whether you could get there by coach or public transport. We stopped for... More

We asked a taxi driver to take us up to the mountains it was a fantastic day. So much to see and do. Our taxi driver took us to so many interesting places on the way up. And yes they show you how they make pottery or make oil, or any amount of other things but there was not the... More

Samira from Authentic Berber Tours was so efficient and pleasant. I had done my homework and knew where I wanted to go and Samira incorporated my ideas while making some suggestions using her local knowledge... More
