    Nous sommes revenus émus et comblés de cette excursion avec Lamine! Tout d’abord merci à Lamine qui est un guide profondément gentil, très cultivé, discret mais très disponible: bref aux petits soins! Nous étions un couple avec notre fille de 18 mois et nous avons été impressionnés par sa conduite très souple, prudente … en toute confiance entre désert et petits chemins de l’Atlas! Organisation parfaite! Nous avons été récupérés devant notre porte dans la médina. Émus de cette journée qui fait du bien aux 5 sens! Vous en prenez plein la vue: de la beauté brute et dorée-ocre du désert d’Agafay, aux paysages infinis! quand soudain, apparaissent les montagnes enneigées de l’Atlas derrière le désert et c’est absolument sublime! Un paysage qui émerveille les yeux et l’âme! Puis vous montez vers la grandeur et la beauté de l’Atlas après avoir vu briller le bleu d’un lac. L’ascension dans les montagnes est époustouflante…vous passez de l’aridité mystérieux du désert à une nature qui devient verte et luxuriante pour vous arrêter dans un village ravissant berbère avec une vue incroyable et une hospitalité rare familiale. La descente est tout aussi incroyable avec des tons rouges, gris, bleus et des roches naturelles flamboyantes. Bref grand coup de cœur pour cette journée qui restera gravée dans nos souvenirs et rêves! Un délice de paix et de paysages rares après le bruit de Marrakech. Pour nous cela restera la clé de voûte de notre voyage. Merci! Époustouflant Maroc! Merci Lamine et ravis d’avoir fait confiance à Arib voyage! Astrid et Adrien et leur mini!

    Kareem was a delight. He was gracious with our asinine questions and shared local culture knowledge. We had mint tea with Tahmi who radiated joy, lunch in the home of a Berber family with great views and delicious food. Such a wonderful experience.

    Was a lot to see and a lot to absorb! The desert, mountains, lakes, and villages. The meal with a Berber family was particularly wonderful and authentic. Highly recommend this day trip.

    This was our first time traveling to Marrakech and we can't wait to go back. Our 1st tour was the Camel 🐫 Tour to the dessert we enjoyed every second , GREAT EXPERIENCE, beautiful views and services. We were so happy 😊 with our guide Kareem that we booked our second day with him to the Atlas Mountains, we can't describe this OUTSTANDING services 👏 and hospitality. THIS IS A MUST DO tour!!.You will enjoy the driving, views and the Berber family lunch. Thank you Kareem for making us feel so WELCOME !!! I feel Marrakech is my 2nd home!!

    Une excellente journée organisée par ARIB VOYAGE et son non moins guide génial MOKHTAR. La famille implantée en France et au Maroc sont d'excellents conseils merci à vous. La famille communique aisément avec vous et vous rappel. Concernant l'excursion rien à redire parfait, véhicules propres ponctualités circuit désert d'Agafay, thé sur le parcours, plateau de KIK, barrage Lalla Takerkoust, délicieux repas chez l'habitant berbère avec vu imprenable sur la montagne et circuit dans l'atlas arrêt photos à la demandes puis retour à Marrakech. Nous étions 13 personnes 8 adultes 5 ados notre groupe n'a rien eu à redire... La prestation est de qualité dans sa globalité on peut y aller en toute confiance et les paroles " vous ne serez pas déçus" résume cette superbe journée. Il est possible de prévoir des activités sur le parcours, dromadaires, quad buggy à convenir au préalable avec les guides. Un grand merci à la famille ELAAMARI

    I can't recommend this day trip enough. Mohktar and his two colleagues took our yoga group for the day into the amazing dessert and the Atlas Mountains where we rode camels, had tea in a tent high in the mountains and then for an amazing lunch at a traditional Berber home, the highlight of the day. The autheticity of this experience is unmatched. Our guides were incredibly personable and friendly. I'd definitely recommend should you find yourself in Marrakech.

    This was our first experience with a guided day tour ever. Despite initial scepticism we can now say in retrospect that this tour was our highlight of the Marrakech holiday. Everything went smoothly! Our very nice, polite and courteous guide responded to every wish. Stopped as soon as he noticed that one wanted to take pictures. Explained the life of the Berbers and let us participate. We ate our best tajine of the holiday at a Berber family, where we had our lunch break. During the meal we had a beautiful view of the mountains and could rest in the sun. All in all this day trip is worth every cent! One travels at most with three fellow travellers in a comfortable jeep, gets the best Taijine ever and a quite private and authentic insight into the Berber culture and the beautiful country Morocco. Note: Please remember to bring enough tips. In my opinion it is a sign of appreciation and respect for the families/people/guides who make a great effort to make your day unforgettable!

    It was an amazing trip with guide Mohktar that we did with the group from Yoga Escape. A fantastic day to come in the beautiful desert of Marocco and experience the desert with camel ride. Just was so peaceful and beautful being on the camel and to see the vast land of marocco. To arrive and have tea in the tents. The trip then went to a berber village where we had wonderful view with very tasty tagine. A mindful walk to end it all and sooo peaceful. I miss the camel ride and would like to go for longer next time. Thank you Mokhtar *
