“Berber children”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We went up to the mountains to the Berber villages to not only appreciate the vista but also to distribute pencils and little notebooks (and sweets of course) to the children. Some of the children were tending to sheep/goats but most of them were coming out of a village school luckily. Just make sure you do not get swamped!! We did the same when we went up the Atlas Mountains 10 years ago through Midelt to the Sahara.

“Day trip to the mountains”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Out of the heat and noise of Marrakech to the beautiful cool and quiet of the mountains. Get a driver and a comfortable car and stop at the Berber villages to see crafts and a different way of life .

“Nice day trip to get away from the craziness in the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

We did an excursion to the Atlas Mountains (the Ourika valley and waterfalls) two weeks ago. The villages in the mountains are adorable, and the views great. Although you are away from the hussle in the city, many vendors still manage to locate tourist stopping to take pictures.

“SUV Journey through the Atlas Mountains”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

We enjoyed stopping at the small villages to see how crafts are made. People are lovely! Along the way we stopped for lunch at the Richard Branson resort, purchased a carpet and many special trinkets for friends at home.
