Mustapha was incredible! The tour doesn’t even come close to the way he described it. First, he was incredibly gracious to come and pick us up from our riad which was off the beaten path and outside of the city. Next, we drove n a very comfortable and air conditioned to van to ride dromedaries or one jumped camels. We rode though the mountain village for shopping and to take pictures of the 1800 year old village. The shopping is like an open flea market where you can ever everything from eggs, rabbits, chickens, sides of lamb and beautiful hand made pottery much cheaper than in the Medina. We went to the Feminine cooperative where women gave us an explanation as to how argon oil is made followed by a demonstration of many different uses for the oil. We ate a beautiful breakfast prepared by the women. Then we rode through the village for a bathroom stop before reaching the mules. We rode miles up narrow mountain paths to a beautiful “baby” waterfall with freshly squeezed orange juice. After a short hike down, we continued on the mules until we reached Mustapha’s home. He brought out some yummy mint Moroccan tea that was very hot. In Mustapha’s home, his mother prepared a beautifully decorated Moroccan salad that was absolutely delicious! She also prepared bread, couscous with some of the sweetest raisins and dates, I’ve ever had followed by vegetables in her tajin. There was so much food and I was completely stuffed. I had to force myself to eat the dessert of cinnamon oranges because I was so full from the lunch but they were very tasty. I loved being in his home with his relatives engaging us in conversation, especially the little cousins because they were so adorable. Finally, we were taken back to our riad foe the end of the trip. I would recommend Mustapha 100%. He is so knowledgeable about the villages and it’s history and he was just a wonderful guide.

Exceeded my expectation! Not only this trip cost is below its real value, but the history class we had from Mustapha along the way was incredibly rich. Also, being invited at his home for lunch made the experience more vivid and charming. Just go for it !

Superbe expérience, si vous cherchez à vous isoler du mouvement de la ville pour une journée, vous toquez à la bonne porte! Les paysages de Tahannoute, à Imlil en passant par Moulay Brahim sont apaisants et à couper le souffle. Une fois arrivés à Imlil prévoyez des chaussures de marches pour vous sentir à l’aise. Moustapha est un hôte très gentil et à l’écoute, les plats traditionnels préparés par sa maman était très copieux et très bons, merci à eux! Nous avons été récupérés à l’heure et sommes rentrés à l’heure à notre Riyad. Rien a dire! Je recommande fortement cette expérience! Nous reviendrons avec grand plaisir !

First of all, this trip was a great price for the amount of different things that we were able to do. On our own, not only would it have been very difficult to plan this trip, but it would have surely cost us much more. Mustapha was a great host, very knowledgeable. He welcomed us into his home and made us feel very welcome and secure. His English is very clear, telling the history of Morocco in an engaging manner. Thanks for a great experience!
