About Trek Atlas Private Day Excursions
Trek Atlas organises private day excursions from Marrakech to a variety of locations. Our Day Excursions are an excellent way to experience the scenery and way of life of the Berber people who live in the Atlas Mountains. We do not combine groups so our Day Excursions can be adapted to suit your interests, fitness and can start on any day. The price of a private Day Excursion includes transport, guide and lunch
Tours and Tickets by Trek Atlas Private Day Excursions
Overview
This private Day Excursion offers the chance to experience something of the Berber way of life as you walk through Berber villages and have lunch with a Berber family in their home. You walk along traditional mule tracks and admire the scenery of the Atlas mountains, including views up towards Toubkal.

Pick up from your hotel or riad in Marrakech around 9.00 for transfer to Imlil stopping on the way to admire the scenery and take photos. We do not stop at stalls or shops which sell local goods unless, of course, you wish us to.

On arrival in Imlil, you are welcomed with mint tea and introduced to your guide.He will discuss with you your interests, the time you have available and your level of fitness. As your Day Excursion is private we can adapt the excursion to some extent to suit you. Typically the Excursion will include 5 to 6 hours walking along mule tracks through small Berber villages, visiting also the Amadan Waterfall.

Trek Atlas created a 7 day tour for my husband and I. And we can’t wait to return to tour with them again! Our guides, Hassan and Ahmed were fun to be with and excellent at what they do. Both guides had unusual situations that arose and they handled them extremely well! Our driver Salh who was with us in the desert is a super fun guy and an amazing driver. We just happened to be there when a flash flood occurred and his expertise turned something that could have been a bad experience into a fun adventure that has become one of our most favorite adventures to share with friends. We highly recommend this company who have become our new friends.

Four of us went with Hassan from Thursday to Sunday. We didn’t climb mount Toubkal as was not the right time of the year. Instead Hassan took us up a nearby mountain 3,200m. The weather was amazing, the walk was beautiful and Hassan looked after us wonderfully. He tailored the walk for us on Saturday to walk a little further which was great. The food was delicious and the hot tagines are what you need after a long walk. The mules carry the heavy luggage from place to place so you can leave sleeping bag with them. It’s good to pack a change of relaxing clothes for when you reach the guest house at 6pm and gets really cold at night. Also bring a towel as there are showers which can be hot if you’re first. It was an amazing four days, and excellent value. I would highly recommend.

A taxi collected us from our hotel and took us to Zin. He was our guide for the day. We couldn't have wished for a better guide. There were 4 of us and all in our 60s. Zin recognised that we couldn't walk uphill for too long so the taxi took us up as far as it could go. Amazing lunch at a Berber house - we're all vegetarian and they catered for our needs perfectly. Overall, an amazing trip. Couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you Zin.

This was a late add on to our 2 week trip and it was by far one of my favourite days. Our guide, Ahmed was kind and knowledgable, the food was amazing, and the serenity of the quiet Berber lifestyle was unbelievable. I highly recommend this excursion.

We had already hiked the Sahara Desert for 5 days, and when we were finished were given this as an idea. It was by far one of my favourite days in Morocco. Great drivers, guides, conversations, scenery and so much more. Simply amazing people.
