If you want to meet the nicest people, have the nicest food, and see extraordinary scenery then this trek will be perfect for you. We were on a weeks holiday in the area and wanted a 1 day walk into the Altas mountains. We are fairly experienced walkers but not serious treckers. First these walks are not suitable for anybody who does not already have walking boots with them. We did. Second take the advice of Ahmed who will make sure that you walk where the sun is not too strong.

Just a quick note to say thank you for organising a great tour for my us. It all went like clockwork. Ahmed, Hassan the trek guide, and Omar the driver were very helpful and efficient. The accommodation was all brilliant, with the guesthouse at Ahmed being particularly good value. The camel ride and night in a tent in the dessert was obviously a bit of a tourist cliche but we loved it nonetheless. Ending up in Marrakech and wandering around the madina was a fun way to end an action-packed week. Ian and Joanne November 2018
I meet Ahmed in the town of Imlil. He is a great experienced mountain guide, told me many stories and we had a good chilled out chat in town. He told me of a few quieter walks via some Berber villages I could do as I was not in Imlil for trekking the Altas Mountains. We talked about my return 2019 and ideas of what to do for a 5 days hike in the mountains.
We did a five hours tour through the Berber villages with Ahmed who is an experienced and very friendly local guide. As we walked through the villages we could authentically experience how people live here, while Ahmed gave us a lot of background information about the Arabic and Berber culture. On top of that Ahmed organized an amazing traditional lunch at his brother’s house in one of the villages. We had a wonderful day we will never forget and are very thankful for the tour with Ahmed.
My girlfriend and I had a 2 day trip with Trek Atlas. Nothing was too much of a problem for Ahmed, who organised the taxi from our hotel to Imlil, and kept us updated in the run up to our visit. We had a great time with our guide, Abdul, who shared his knowledge of the Berber communities and towns during the trek, whilst also being so kind as to invite us to his home where we enjoyed lunch.
My boyfriend and I booked a 2 day excursion around Imlil with Trek Atlas. We found the trip to be amazing value, and our guide, Abdul, was really kind. Ahmed made sure to meet us at the start and at the end of our trip. We got to eat lunch in Abdul's house, and had a picnic beside a beautiful waterfall on the second day. It wasn't too strenuous and Abdul was able to adjust the pace depending on how tired we were feeling. Heather September 2018
..Solo 3 day trek that included Mt Toubkal and a day walking in the valley. For me, tough going through the snow only made possible by Hassan, Hassan and Ahmed. My needs were anticipated and my requests met with a smile. No wheat...no problem....no nuts...no problem...no mint tea...ok you are a pain but no problem) So, no matter what issues or concern on health, food, safety you may have Ahmed and his team will make sure you are safe, secure and anxiety free.
Well...what can we say! What a trip!!!!!!!!!!! Awesome! My husband and I booked a trek with Chris and Ahmed way back in Jan/Feb of this year. We had limited time........we told Chris what we wanted to do and boom! it was arranged, we agreed with the travel plans and we could hardly wait to arrive in Morocco to start the trek. We met up with Ahmed and Ibriham in Imlil before our trek through Toubkal and the end of the four days in the Sahara Desert. They were both so nice and very wonderful to deal with.
Dear Ahmed, Mum and I would both like to thank you so much for arranging the most wonderful trek in the valleys of the Atlas Mountains. From the moment we met up with you, Hassan (Guide) and Hassan (Cook and Muleteer), we were so well looked after. The scenery was spectacular, the walk was reasonably challenging but the pace was perfect, the accommodation was basic but comfortable and the food prepared by Hassan was the most delicious, local Berber dishes. We would highly recommend your company to other adventurers!
Dear Ahmed, I would like to thank you for organizing our holiday in Morocco. Everybody we have met has been very kind and helpful. I would not hesitate in recommending Trek Atlas to our friends and family if they wished to visit Morocco. Our guide Mouhsine was very helpful and was knowledgeable about all aspects of our trek. Mouhsine was very good with our children and our daughter was very sad when we said goodbye this evening as she will miss him. Chris
