Excellent experience, I booked this excursion on booking.com 1 night before not really knowing what to expect. The bus picked us up in city center at a fuel station where about 6 other people were waiting to come onto the bus as well, it was a really amazing experience, good food, organized, well worth the money spent.


Fantastic. I was looking forward to this day trip and had high expectations and I was not disappointed and it's mostly due to the guide, Red oun. He was very informative and stopped in perfect locations for photo ops and history lessons. The trails, day in the life experiences, waterfalls, views were exactly what I wanted and then the camel ride was the icing on the cake. It was perfect. The agafay desert was silent. I didn't want it to end.


We booked the “Atlas Mountains and 3 Valleys & Waterfalls & Desert Agafay - Day Trip Marrakech” on viator but couldn’t find the review page so thought we’d leave one on here! This was such a great day trip from Marrakech! After spending 3 days in the city it was wonderful to get out and explore the other landscapes of Morocco and escape the heat as well. Our tour guide Idriss was amazing! He was Very easy to make conversation with, funny and attentive the whole time. It was also great that he had personal experience living in the villages so we got to hear about how real life is. We went on a camel ride, visited an argon oil cooperative, saw multiple villages in the Atlas Mountains and had a local lunch. Everyone we came across was incredibly friendly. I would recommend this trip and Idriss to everyone!


The day was a very good and nice experience from start to finish. You were shown a lot and you saw a lot. The guide Youssef enjoys his work and does a very good job with heart. The driver Hassan is also a good man. Absolutely to suggest! Greetz Leon


Our trip was fantastic! We met with our guide (Jawad Mazzick) and driver at Jemaa El Fnaa and we drove with our small group, taking pictures on the way, to our first stop to ride the camels and have a tea. We then started to ascend the mountains up towards Imlil Valley. The landscape is beautiful! We had a delicious lunch (best tagine we have had!) and then took a walk through the town to Jawad’s house for some more tea and the amazing view from the terrace. We then stopped to see how argan oil is made and sample some products. The trip was very well organised and very enjoyable! We would highly recommend!


Nice day out in the mountain and desert, with a 2 hours smooth hiking and camel ride. Last word to the guide, Omar Zin, that is diligent and attentive.


Camel ride was definitely the highlight. We saw the snow capped atlas mountain and a waterfall along the way.


Fantastic day out! Our tour guide was great, the high Atlas Mountains were beautiful, the camel ride was amazing


Hi! I came on this trip on May 10, 2019 with two of my best friends and it was def one of the best highlights of our time in Morroco. We also met 3 older ladies on this trip that we have been trying to find ever since to reconnect because we had such a good time with them! Would you still have the names of the people that went on this tour on May 10th to help us find them?


Our friendly/wonderful tour guide Mustapha took us to alpha mountain , on the way stopped for camel ride , then wonderful Mohammed Sala took over and guided us to the waterfall and he was very informative and friendly. Dessert Agafay was ok, stoney dessert. We had a wonderful day out. Thanks to Mustapha and Mohammed Sala. Would recommend this excursion.
