    This is a day trip to the foothills of the Atlas Mountains where you can enjoy trails with arid hills, oasis and valleys. After crossing a forest of eucalyptus, you will discover magnificent Berber villages before joining the closest stoney desert to Marrakech. The landscape of the Agafay desert is covered with rare wild flowers, wheat and barley, but during the summer and autumn months it looks like a real desert with stoney dunes running down the majestic Atlas Mountains. A stop for pictures is a must before heading to the dam of Lalla Takarkoust where you can have a refreshing cup of mint tea.

    The excursion had just started, more breathtaking adventures and more amazing diverse landscapes are waiting to be discoverd . Heading up to the Atlas via Kik plateau with a stuning view of the snow-capped mountains, the next direction is to the camel ride point where you can set off for a pleasant half an hour stroll on the camels.

    The drive continue deeper into the Atlas mountains and your next distination will be magnificent hidden villages scattred in the middel of the Toubkal National Park. The irresistible lunch cooked and served at our family house, it self, is an unforgottable taste that you are trying for your first time .

    After enjoying your three courses meal lunch in the roof top of our family's house, a friendly local guide is going to take you for a walk through the typic hamlets and the green fields of the area before you drive back down to Marrakech via a different road.

    On a Saturdays and Tuesdays, we will stop in Asni village or Tahanaout town and take you in a tour through the local weekly market , find your way through the crow of local berbers coming from all the surrounding villages for socialising, exchanging goods and animals and buying fresh vegetables, fruits and all their needs.

      My girlfriend and I were planning to spend just a week in Morocco, mainly around Marrakech, and so were reluctant to take a long trip to the Sahara etc. This Agafay trip seemed like a great option closer to the city, with lots to do – and we weren’t disappointed!

      The day started off with some nice views and a visit to an argan oil cooperative, where we were fed some nice argan-related snacks and shown how it all gets made. We also picked up some stuff at the store, but there was no pressure to do so.

      We then went to the mountain villages where our guide Nassim is from. We walked some small hill paths where we saw village homes, crossed back and forth over streams, saw a waterfall and plenty of snow (it wasn’t cold though, weirdly) and got a lot of fresh mountain air. At the end, we had a tasty traditional meal in a berber family home. We’re both vegetarian and they accommodated this perfectly.

      Next on our trip was a drive to the edge of the Agafay Desert, where we had a short camel ride. This wasn’t the most exciting part of the trip for me personally, but I know a lot of people are excited to ride a camel while in Morocco. Nassim took photos of everyone during the ride. We could pet the camels after too, which was great – especially a fluffy baby one!

      After this, we went off-roading before arriving at a small berber desert camp where we had a tea and watched the sun go down. When we were done we drove though the desert where we got some great pictures of the sunset.

      All in all, it was a full day of activities (and lunch) for a very reasonable price, in a location relatively close to Marrakech city. It ticked a lot of boxes in one go with the berber, mountains, desert, food, camels, tea, argan oil, etc. Nassim had the answers to all of questions and was very fun and friendly, as was everyone else involved. 10/10, would recommend.

      We have booked this trip as it offered everything we wanted to see all in one day!
      We had the best time. Our guide Nassim was superb! He was very friendly and informative and he totally made us feel so welcome. We enjoyed the lunch at his cousin's house and seeing how people live. The off-road drive through the desert was just cherry on the top and the driver went above and beyond for us to make perfect pictures with sunset.
      The tour is absolutely worth every penny and I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone who wants to see the real life outside the craziness of the city.
      Thank you to both Nassim and the driver for the beautiful day and the memories we took home!

      Overall: Omar our guide was friendly and helpful, letting you enjoy the tour as you want to. Thoughtful answers to questions.
      Specific highlights: Pleasant walk through the Berber village, interesting to see inside a real Berber house. Also went farther off-roading into the desert in the Toyota 4x4 than I was expecting (maybe 1 hour total off-road).
      Other: A little problem in the beginning with a bike race delaying our travel over 1 hour (seems other tour guides were in the same traffic jam also), but they were committed to provide the full tour (just getting back a little later). So they made up for that and I still rate 5.
      Very reasonable cost for the full experience you get.
