We arranged this through the hotel but after doing the trip it is as easy to book a taxi and pick up a guide when you get there. The journey out was a nice trip through the countryside and the obligatory stops at Berber house...More

We took a trip organised by the hotel in a 4x4 to telouet and the high atlas. Stunning scenery, a verdant green river of flowers runs down the otherwise arid valley, smiling kids who have now been introduced to Werthers sweets. A real snapshot into...More

This is a must do when visiting MArrakech. I would recommend going on a monday as you can then visit the Berbur markets. Beautiful sights and a small insight into how the local people live. They do tend to stop in small shops along the...More
