We booked a day trip with Rachid and absolutely loved it. Mohamed his friend picked us from our hotel and along the way explained the historical significance of the Atlas mountains also pointing out landmarks and places of interest as we drove. Once we got to the mountain we were awestruck by its beauty and Rachid made the experience just that much more pleasant. We wanted to see a waterfall and the general mountain life which Rachid gladly showed us. My sister and I chose fashionable boots over sensible boots (big mistake...it's a mountain, really it is! lol) he was patient, humorous and very informative. We found the people in Marrakech to be just plain friendly and wonderful and this was truer in the mountains where the community spirit amazing. After our Trek we stopped in a small village for a 3 course lunch which involved a traditional Lamb Tagine which was the best one we'd had whilst in Morocco. We then ended the day with an hour long Camel ride taking in the landscape which was wonderful after the trek.
This was definitely the highlight of our trip and Rachid and Mohamed made it memorable.
