booked the 1 day trip to the berber market and then walk to the berber village and lunch,,I cant praise it enough !
Lahecn was a brilliant host and guide, we felt very comfortable with him and had fun with him as well as being educated in berber life.
Lahecn is so knowledgable and answered all our questions and is very enthusiastic.The trip to the market was an eye opener and Lahecn showed us all of it..the meat market was not for the faint hearted .. this is berber life not the touristy souks...it was great as we were the only tourists there such a refreshing change from marrakesh centre.Lehcn made us the most fantastic cup of tea with fresh herbs he bought at the market and the he got us some fresh doughnuts
the walk to the village.....well the scenery was breathtaking and so relaxing..we juts chatted all the time with Lahecn..he was great company and very patient with the amount of photos and filming we kept stoppin to do.

the vilage we went too was great and the family we had lunch with were lovely and had fun conversing with them via Lahcen. The food was excellent and so much better than the rubbish we had in the hotel....we sat in true berber style on the floor and used the home made bread and hands to eat the meal
the walk back was lovely and different scenery from the walk up..we saw more of the mountains which was very dramatic
The day was perfect and would recommend 100%..forget the tourist trips where you see nothing different... book with Lahcen and Ahmed and see the real Morroco and make a nice friend in Lahcen...thanks JLahcen for such a memorable day and also our driver who picked us up at out hotel and drove us through the countryside to the Atlas Mountains to meet Lahcen and Ahmed Abdul...again a lovley guy and very easy to chat tool

It was a great adventure. We got to see how the villagers's life in close up. We had tea and home-made lunch in their houses. I must say it is one of the best Tagine's I ever had out of Marrakech! We've also seen how they make the traditional bread and basically, how the berber villagers live. Unlike Marrakech, the locals in the village are very polite, friendly and welcoming. You can tell that these people are sincere and are not asking for anything else in return.

Lahecn, our tour guide , is a really great guy. It was a good 8km walk and he showed us through the treks of hills the villages and the beautiful scenery. We came across shephards and herds of sheep and goats in the mountain and also visited two berber families, which are good breaks to have mint teas, bread and lunch.
THe price we pay absolutely include everything, drinks, snacks, lunch, and tea.

We went with our 7 year old son and we had a fantastic time! Our son did the trip on top of a mule and he loved it. We had a guide and a local was accompanying the mule. They were both very child friendly, very attentive and great company during the trip. The food at the bereber family was outstanding!!! The best meal in marrakesh... And we tried quite a few of the top restaurants in town! Overall it was excellent value for money. Guide went out of his way buying pastries and popcorn for our son. We took with us a bunch of pens and children were delighted. As advised by other reviews, we also brought a box of chocolate for the family. Now i regret not having taken some little cars or smallish toys from my son for the children of the family.... Organizers take care of everything, tea stops , bottled water etc. Just bring very solid walking shoes because the walking path is not exactly a boulevard...

We did a three day trip with trekkingatlasmountains at the begining of june with Ahmed and Ebrahim quite a few ups and downs of the atlas mountains, we coped! Visiting the berber families and seeing their life and work was a unique experience- this trip is really for those who want more from their holidays. I cant close without mentioning the food, WONDERFUL! If you enjoy Moroccan quisine I promise you that the home cooked food on this trip is truly the best. Thank you for everything. I hope I remember this for a long time to come.

I would highly recommend this great day out with the lovely guide Ibrahim. It's a unique experience, although does involve a fair amount of walking (we did the moderate excursion). Not to worry though, they have a mule to carry the bags and that can provide your legs with a brief rest!
The families you meet along the way are lovely, and provide the most amazing mid-morning snack and meal. A must for anyone staying in Marrakech and looking for a day trip into the mountains to discover the Berber villages!
