“I had the best day”
Reviewed October 16, 2013 via mobile

After our week long conference in Marrakech, we decided that we wanted to do something different and outdoorsy before we left Morocco and after a little research I stumbled upon trekking Morrroco mountains on trip advisor.
While emailing Abdou I was very skeptical as it was a last minute enquiry but he replied to my emails immediately and within a few minutes we had everything planned out.
Our driver was on time to pick us up from the four seasons resort and he was the most delightful hound man I had the pleasure of meeting all my stay. We drove down to Imlil laughing all the way and he was extremely knowledgeable of the surroundings all the way and the great history of the North Africa. It's a pity I forgot his name but thank him for us if you can Abdou.
In Imlil we were received by Abdou who took time to discuss our trip over mint tea and eventually we decided on a route that was both reasonable for both of us and we had a lovely climb. After a short while my aunt was exhausted and decided she wanted a mule which Abdou Organized within record time. It was an incredible trip and it was nice to go to Abdou's (the tour guide) Home and the snacks he provided, and his son was a great joy to be around. Thank you so much for the hospitality.
We later went to the other Abdou's home where we had the most delicious lunch under the apple trees and played with his son and rested totally before we begun our journey back to Marrakech.
The two brothers' generosity is humbling and may God continue to bless you.
If you ever want to take a trip, these are the people to look for.
It was a trip filled with love and great memories.
I was completely enchanted.
Thank you!

“A fantastic day away from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

My partner booked the day camel trek and trip to the Atlas Mountains, and we're really glad she did. We had an amazing time - Abdou is a brilliant guide, and to dine in his home was a real honour - his wife cooked an amazing meal, and his son was adorable.

The trek itself was beautiful, and really well organised. We were picked up first thing in the morning and driven to a small village an hour outside of Marrakech, where our Abdou (our guide) and our camels were waiting for us. The camels were very safe and secure feeling, and we enjoyed taking in the scenery on our 1hr30 ride through the farms, apple and walnut trees. We were then driven in Imlil where the view of the High Atlas mountains in the background was incredible. We walked around the villages before stopping for lunch, after which we were picked up and whisked back to our Riad in the city, safe and sound.

The whole day was a joy - from the camels, to lunch in the shade of Abdou's apple trees, and exploring some of the Berber villages in Imlil.

Abdou's other trips also sound great, and we'd like to do a longer one next time!

A day out on the tour was well worth it, and was a thoroughly enjoyable way to escape the city.

“Absolutely lovely day with Abdou”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Checked a lot of different companies that offers daytrips, but chose Trekking morocco mountains, because reviewers felt they were in very good hands, and everything went smoothly.
Within 15 min after sending first mail, everything was booked.
In marrakesh the driver picked us up at our riad on time, and drove us 45 min up in the mountains where Abdou was waiting with camels. We rode camels along applefields and a couple of villages for 1,5 hour ( remember sunscreen,hat and water) the driver waited for us where the cameltrek ended, and we drove to Imlil, where Abdou asked for how long we wanted to walk. We went for a smaller trip 1,5 hour through the mountain landscape. We arrived at the house of Abdou where a carpet and pillows had been layed out under appletrees, and we had lovely minttea, and a very good lunch, it was a priceless moment of the trip. Abdou is a really nice guy, who loves the mountains, and he adapts the trips so they fit you. We had a lovely day in the mountains in very good company, when we go to morocco next time we will certainly use Abdou as a guide again. A great experience, and as a mother travelling with daughter ,we felt safe and in good hands all along.

“Three days to explore some mountains”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

As we had to go to Marocco for a conference with a couple of colleagues, we decided that we wanted to experience Marocco besides pool and cocktail parties. We found Trekking Morocco Mountains on-line and since the first contact everything worked out as smooth as one can imagine. Abdou replied quickly and decided on a program that sounded as if it could fit our mixed level of mountain experience: Three days trekking, max. height 2300m, walking hours 4-5, around M. Toupkal.
In Marocoo, we were picked up from our hostel in Marrakesh on time. Arriving in Imlil, Abdou welcomed us and took us on a first tour to find out how we manage our way in the mountains. He adjusted the route for the next two days accordingly which gave us the feeling of being in good hands which we were. The following two days we were accomanpied by his brother and a mule who brought us back safe and gave us the pleasure of walking through a wonderful landscape with the most beautiful views.
Accomodation was fine, too, even though showers were rare (as we knew the pool was waiting, that really was no problem). And the most important thing: Food was better than anything we had later on the conference parties! Abdou, his brother and his wife made wonderful dishes all along the way.
Great experience!

“One of the best things to do in Marrakech”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

We booked a one day trip with them though email before we arrived Morocco. Eveything went smoothly, and they had no problem with communicating in French or English.

It was a very good trip, it worths the money. If we have had more time in Marrakech, we would have booked another day with them.
Gorgeous sightseeing! Camel Riding! And, Very good Food!

We are planning to go to Marrackech again and book a 2 days or 3 days trip with them.
